Yulia Menshikh's Full Profile
To my way of thinking the most important thing in teaching is to take into consideration the students' age, education, their language proficiency level, interests and psychological features. I try to give enough attention to language basics (phonetics, vocabulary, grammar, syntax patterns), but I also tell my students about the things they don't normally learn at school - modern tendencies in the language, expressing same ideas in spoken/informal phrases vs. written/formal language, slang words etc. At my English classes I only teach using grammar guides and dictionaries from Oxford or Cambridge University Press since I find these sources the most reliable and qualified ones for English-learners. I give the lessons of Russian using books written by the professors of Moscow State University and Moscow State Institute of International Relations. I use samples from movies, TV series and books to illustrate the use of different conversational patterns.
In 2010 I graduated from university where I studied translating and interpreting from English and French. I love foreign languages and now I'm learning Hebrew. My interests are music, literature, history, movies and arts. I'm here to share my knowledge and love for foreign languages, money is of secondary importance to me. I believe that one of the wonders of teaching is not only in making your students more skillful, but it's also a chance to learn something on your own. I enjoy teaching and I hope I will be able to help someone via online tutorship.
