Teach in School Russia


Many of the things we hear about Russia are hard to believe or even understand. Did you know that Russia  is the biggest country in the world, covering ⅙ of the Earth’s surface? It’s true! Russia spans across 10 time zones! That’s why it has  a great diversity of cultures. Some of the world's greatest minds, like the scientist Dmitriy Mendeleev and the novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky were from Russia. And the Russian Federation's space program which was started during the Soviet Union times, is famous all over the world for sending the first man into space.  But there are also some  stereotypes, like bears walking around the streets or that it is freezing cold year round. We invite you to discover the truth yourself!

And the best way to discover the real Russia is with an ALT Experience Russia programs:

Our schools

We believe that teaching in the private sector will benefit our participants more than public schools, because there is a strong motivation to add cultural diversity, to share our teacher's experience, to learn something new from a native speaker. Each school we work with will be happy to help our guest to integrate into the school life. There is an orientation session for every teacher's assistant ( intern), provided at their first day at school and a 3 days on the job training with the teacher to help them immerse into the teaching process. Local office support is also available 24/7.
