I am a native speaker of Russian and currently live with my family in Graz, Austria.
After successful graduation form the department of slavonic languages (with a main focus on Bulgarian and Russian) of the state university of St.Petersburg, Russia, I moved to Munich, Germany, in order to improve my knowledge especially in the field of theoretical and practical phonetics. I obtained my MA from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich in slavonic languages, phonetics and psycholinguistics. After my graduation I worked for several years as a scientific researcher and teacher at the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing in Munich and at the Institute of Germanic Studies at the Otto-Friedrich-University of Bamberg. After I had given birth to a son, I started to teach Russian, Bulgarian and German to students with different language skills and goals.
Because of my education I am skilled to submit a qualified introduction to phonetics of Russian and Bulgarian as well as to offer a learning program which covers individual language needs of a student.
Generally, it is especially important for me to see my students actively involved into the learning process. Besides, I am aiming at following rather strict methodological principles as well as at regular controlling of the acquired language skills during the lessons and as a homework.
Specifically I am aiming at overcoming speaking barriers of the students, e.g., I would like to encourage the communicative aspect of teaching. However, I am aware of the importance of grammatical studies during the lessons.
I am proficient in online-tools and can perform a digital course of Russian or Bulgarian languages. My lessons can take place in German, English, Russian or Bulgarian.
