I am a TEFL certified English teacher from the USA and have spent the past few years living and teaching in Moscow, Russia. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Connecticut College and have four years experience in instructing a wide range of students, including children, university students and businessmen/businesswomen.
When I teach my lessons, I always centre the material around conversation. As someone who is currently attempting to learn a second language (in my case Russian) I know how important actually using the language is, therefore, I want my students to practise speaking as much as possible. In these conversations, I will include new sets of vocabulary and introduce new grammar rules. I always provide my students supplemental material (usually videos and articles) and try to centre the lessons around topics the students find interesting, such as travel, film, arts, business, etc.
