Hello everyone My name is Maria, my native language is Russian, I also speak French, English and Ukrainian fluently.
I always say that I am in the profession for love, I consider work my hobby, I get great pleasure from this creativity and am always ready to share my energy with others.
I had a love for the French language when I was 10 years old, and for the first time I visited a circle where we learned to count in French and learned the song "Frère Jacques".
This was followed by studying at a bilingual gymnasium with an in-depth study of French, followed by graduation from the university with the specialty "Teacher of French and Latin languages and literature". At the same time, I was interning in France, first as a student, then as a teacher's assistant at the lyceum, at the same time I worked in a social service in France and traveled, getting to know the country of my favorite language better.
While still at university, I became interested in studying modern French literature, my favorite writer is Anna Gavalda, once I even sent her a letter and received a very touching response. This hobby also affected my professional path: I defended my PhD thesis on the work of my favorite author.
At the same time, I started working as a teacher of Russian as a foreign language for francophones and successfully prepared a group of students for the TRKI-1 exam in a short time.
I was retrained at the Higher School of Economics, and also attended a number of internships, conferences on advanced training in the field of modern teaching methods and continue to study with each of my students.
Absolutely anyone can learn a new language, but I believe that not only the end result is important, but also the process itself, I always try to turn it into an exciting journey full of discoveries and inspiration. I will be glad to see you in my lessons!
