Natalia is a qualified tutor of Russian as a second language. She has been teaching Russian for about 10 years to private students and at language schools (Derzhavin Institute, Saint Petersburg; Centre de la Lengua y Cultura Rusa A.Pushkin, Barcelona; Escola official d’Idiomes de Barcelona). She is a professional not only in teaching, but also in research on second language acquisition. Currently, she is teaching Russian to non-native speakers via Skype, and is working on her PhD thesis on the acquisition of Russian by adult Spanish speakers. Her research aims to develop a new approach in teaching complex grammar subjects such as the Russian case system.
Natalia offers classes to adult learners of any level with different goals and needs. She organizes her classes in a way that allows her students to be able to communicate faster, to expand their vocabulary, and not to get bored with grammar.
