I have been teaching English as a Second Language for close to ten years while living in Russia.
I have taught adults (students and professionals), children, and teenagers and worked one-on-one and also in a classroom setting.
I've taught general English, business English, TOEFL and FCE preparation, writing, and conversational English.
I bring spontaneity, a sense of humor, creative spirit, a supportive and friendly attitude, and curiosity to my classes.
I'd be happy to submit references upon request.
I have been speaking and working with Russian for over twenty years. While I have only tutored people in Russian on a few occasions in that period, I have ten years experience as a teacher of ESL and as a facilitator and trainer that I draw on in tutoring.
My knowledge of the language is also informed by having lived in Russia for ten years, from 1997 to 2006.
Also, I have worked as a Russian interpreter interpreter at international conferences and edited the translation of four training manuals, one book, and other materials into Russian.
When I work with a student, I aim to make the lessons as student-directed as possible.
I bring spontaneity, a sense of humor, creative spirit, and also a healthy rigor to my lessons.
I'm happy to provide references attesting both to my knowledge of the language and also addressing my ability as a teacher/tutor.
