Our Teachers

What's so special about our teachers?

We hire only the best and most experienced distance learning English language teachers—

The skill and experience of your online English language teacher obviously has a substantial impact on the success of your training. In our opinion, this is the most important component of any successful online language training program. We invest substantial effort and money in recruiting and motivating our team of professional online English language teachers-- because our clients deserve the best.

RUSSIAN TEACHING PROFESSIONALS

Our Russian-educated teachers are just great; they all have Russian pedagogical university degrees in teaching English (or other languages) specifically to Russian-speakers and a minimum of five years of actual language teaching experience.

They are superb at teaching all proficiency levels up to, and including, High Upper Intermediate levels. Many have advanced English language teaching degrees from internationally-recognized universities, including Oxford, St. Andrews, Kings College, London and the University of Pennsylvania.

NATIVE-SPEAKING TEACHERS

Our native-speaking English instructors specialize in distance learning teaching to more advanced learners. All have CELTA or other international teaching qualifications and extensive online teaching qualifications with specific experience of teaching, for example, English to Russian speakers: our international instructors are real teaching professionals and not simply English speaking expats or students without any real professional teaching experience or teaching aptitude.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU

Our instructors are adaptive and flexible to the needs of their students. Their empathy and experience in understanding student levels allows them to present and adapt the online curriculum to the learning styles and scoring levels of the class. At the class level, the instructor will take into account test scores, class participation, homework progress, and student needs and then adapt the class to the scoring levels of the students.

Instructors also adapt the curriculum to the individual student and can provide an individualized, optimal study plan for each student. If you’re studying online in a group, we only have mini-groups--generally no more than four students-- so our instructors have a much easier time adapting to individual student scoring levels and needs. With a FR instructor, you get focused, custom tailored, online instruction.
