I am a multilingual tutor, fluent in Italian, Russian, and English, intermediate in French and Spanish. I have a CA Teacher's Credential and thus have been fingerprinted and passed a background check. Currently I am employed as a substitute teacher in Long Beach School District. I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Linguistic University in Belarus, where I gained the knowledge on how to effectively teach foreign languages, literature, and translation techniques to students. In addition I graduated from CSULB with a Master's degree in Education, Dual Language Development, while at the same time pursuing a Teacher's Credential in Single Subject in teaching languages. I have maintained 4.0 GPA and became a distinguished member of PKP and Golden Key Honor's Societies of Academic Excellence. I also acquired a Certificate in teaching English as a Second Language from Oxford Seminars. I have been tutoring foreign languages for more than 12 years. Most of my students make a great progress and compliment me on making complex material clear, organizing engaging and challenging lessons, tailoring lessons according to their individual needs, and inspiring them to master foreign languages. I use a variety of materials, such as videos, songs, images, and authentic texts. My international experience make me a unique teacher. I have studied in Eastern and Western Europe and in the USA, which gives me opportunities to select the most effective instructional strategies from around the word and incorporate them in my lessons. I believe one has to love what one does in order to be great at it. I feel very passionate about teaching world languages and cultures and would love to share my knowledge with you!
I have been teaching English to the speakers of other languages for more than 10 years. I have a Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English and Italian. During the University years I have studied English grammar thoroughly as well as other aspects of the language (syntax,semantics,phonology,pragmatics, structure,punctuation,spelling,history of the language). I have prepared a great number of students for the exam of TOEFL. I also carry a ESL/ESOL certificate from Oxford seminars.
I am a native speaker of the Russian language. Most of my life I have been dealing with languages and have a Master's Degree in Linguistics. My Mother is a teacher of the Russian Language and Literature, and I learned a lot from her, such as what methods and approaches to use with the students in order to help them succeed in a relatively short period of time. Russian is one of the most difficult languages with a very complex grammar, and one needs to know the structure of the language perfectly in order to be able to convey it to the students in an accessible and clear way. My skills, academic and professional experience make it possible for me to teach efficiently.

Extremely competent and caring — Tatiana is the best Italian teacher/tutor I have ever had. I have had several tutors and not one of them has been able to teach me the way she has. She thoroughly knows her stuff and is able to effectively communicate it. I not only learned and understood more in my visits with her than I ever have before, but I also started to remember why I ever decided to learn Italian. I remembered how much I ...
