I am a native Estonian speaker who speaks fluent English and has plenty of experience teaching English, Estonian and French. My literary background includes translating, writing and editing in both Estonian and English, giving me a wide vocabulary and a flair with words. As I also speak French, Russian and basic Italian, I know exactly how it is easier to memorise words and master the language fast, making me also good at teaching. Being a native Estonian, I know a lot about our language and culture, that you will not find in any book or official courses.
My teaching method is focused on making studying entertaining, because by creating emotional bond with certain phrases and words, you will learn faster and also retain the information longer. I combine grammar with Estonian music, literature, poetry and media and explain cultural nuances in addition to that. As a teacher, I am an a good communicator, very patient and always open to new ideas. My knowledge in English, French, Russian and Italian helps the student to find connection between Estonian and other languages.
Kamēr citi tikai domā un sapņo, Tu jau dari! Iemīlejies valodu apguves procesā un padari to par tavu ikdienas rutīnu.
I am a student who is also a freelance writer, journalist and language tutor. As I am very interested in history and other cultures, learning languages along with traveling is an exciting way to broaden my horizon and give me a better understanding of the world. My other main motivation for speaking an array of languages, is to bring me closer to people with different background and make each travel even more memorable.
As a person I am very friendly, open and a good listener, which aids me in being a tutor. I love sharing my Estonian culture and am as curious to learn about yours! :)
