My name is Yana. I am an ESL teacher with the concentration in academic preparation. I work with native and non-native speakers who are passionate about pursuing a brilliant career, getting high scores on entrance examinations, and achieving academic success. Being raised and educated in the multicultural environment made me deeply realize how to approach an individual whose main struggle is second language learning and academic preparation. In approximately 5- 9 months I take my students from where they are to where they want to be. Very often the education that I provide represents a mixture of courses: a course in second language acquisition and a course in exam preparation depending on my client’s needs. Every client comes to me with a set of goals that I am working on together with my team until the client is happy and satisfied.
Having received the Bachelor’s degree from the Linguistic University in Russia, the Master’s degree from City University of New York, teachers certificates from Moscow State University, Texas Wesleyan University, and University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (TKT Certification). I came to understanding that education is something that is ongoing and never ending. All of my knowledge and skills that I gained during my education experiences and teaching experiences at language schools all over the world, at American Language Institute (City University of New York), IT companies, state and private schools, worldwide non-profit organizations makes me fully aware of how I accelerate my student’s language learning and effectively prepare the students for different types of tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, GRE, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, TEAS, CUNY CAT Assessment Test, New York State Exams etc.
My teacher’s approach is based not only teaching subjects to students but also keeping them motivated, making them believe that they can achieve more, emphasizing on their strengths and addressing their weaknesses.
