Svetlana’s Moto: “Any learning experience must be enjoyable and fun” and fun it is! Svetlana offers teaching of Russian language with methodologies fitting in with her motto. She worked for  Children’s Business School in Tallinn for over twenty years, worked with Game Club there, developed and applied games for children in partnership with up to twenty schools.

Svetlana has a degree in Primary School Education from the University of Tallinn (specialisation in teaching design technology, drawing, physical education). All that experience and knowledge Svetlana brings to live in her highly innovative lessons. She develops teaching material for Bilingual Children, children for whom Russian is a Foreign language.

Children up to the age of fourteen learn faster and more effectively through play. Combination of traditional academic learning with innovative active games make children learn the language with all types of memory. We recognised that some might be visual learners, some are read & write, some are audio, some tactile learners etc. and therefore the learning through interactive methodologies unlocks every child’s potential. Svetlana’s teaching strategies involve all that.

Olga’s formal education is in Journalism and Russian Literature from Tiraspol Division of the Moscow State University. Olga has an amazing talent in helping children to unlock their conversational skills in speaking Russian as a Foreign Language. Bilingual Children also develop their speaking ability further. She uses Speech and Language Methodologies, drama, theatre, encouraging creative thinking and observational skills in expressing the language in metaphor based way. Children learn poems, songs, dramatize stories, and perform in front of peers and parents. That helps to improve their confidence as well as their presentational skills. Olga also is a Yoga teacher and Children’s parties planner. That gives her a fantastic rapport with children, understanding their inner world and individuality. Children are relaxed, at ease and able to perform to the best of their ability.
