Hello! My name is Irina. I'm Russian. Currently, I'm living in Portugal, where it's not always sunny. I'd be happy to help you learn my native language. I offer Conversational Russian; Russian for beginners; Intensive Russian; General Russian. Let's talk!
I am a teacher in an Academy of English. I teach kids and teenagers from age 8 to 15 , as well as I give private classes to adults. Currently I am finishing my degree at the University of Barcelona where I study Modern Languages and Literature specializing in English and Spanish languages and at the age of 20 I obtained an IB diploma studying in Denmark.
I am an inspiring language coach and I help people to improve their English language skills and learn Spanish from scratch.
I am passionate about learning, languages, personal development and everything that is connected with improvement of quality of life through learning.
I have been teaching languages for more than 5 years now to my wonderful students with diverse interests from Latvia, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Belarus, UK and Denmark.
Welcome to my classes!
I have both a Masters and a Bachelor degree in TESOL and this has prepared me for teaching English as a second language to non-native speakers. Over the last 10 years I have been teaching children and adults from all over the world for general improvement in English skills as well as preparation for standardized tests.
During almost 30 years I have got an extensive experience by working with kids as well as with teenagers and adults. One must say I prefer teenagers and adults. I have BA in philology, MA in pedagogy and a lot of courses attended in Latvia and abroad. Speaking, expressing the point of view and teaching grammar are my strongest points but as mentioned above I do everything necessary for the student.
I have studied English Philology and translation, I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, 7 of those constant experience teaching online via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet and MS Teams. I have participated in various teaching projects under the ERASMUS + programme and I keep learning and improving professionally myself.
Mācu valodu Valsts valodas prasmes eksāmenam ( A,B, C līmeņus), sarunvalodu, gramatiku, gatavoju Naturalizācijas eksāmenam krieviski runājošos pieaugušos un 3.-9.klases skolēnus, Pēdējos gados strādāju ar NVA kursantiem. Sekmīgi eksāmenu nokārtojušo kursantu procents ir augsts. Valodas pasniegšanas pieredze 25 gadi. Savi izstrādātie materiāli. Valodas apgūšanas pamatā izmantoju komunikāciju un praktisku valodas pielietojumu. Iepazīstinu ar Latvijas vēsturi, kultūru, ģeogrāfiju.
Main attention - to the practical use and communication. However, the real improvement is only possible by grammatically correct speech and writing. These two approaches must be in balance. Galvenais uzsvars - uz valodas praktisko pielietojamību un dialogu. Tomēr patiesa izaugsme iespējama tikai ar gramatiski pareizu runas un rakstības pārvaldīšanu. Tādēļ svarīgas ir abas pieejas, tām jābūt līdzsvarā.
