I am a recent graduate from UCLA with a PhD in Cinema and Media Studies. In addition, I hold a Master's degree in Critical Studies (UCLA) and a Bachelor's degree in English (University of Rochester). As a doctoral candidate, I have received a highly interdisciplinary education with my research interests ranging from film studies and art history to philosophy and literary criticism. I have been awarded a number of prestigious awards and fellowships including Graduate Division Dissertation Year Fellowship and Andrew W. Mellon Dissertation Seminar in the Humanities award. Apart from engaging in a variety of seminars across the humanities, I've also benefited from my work at UCLA Center for the Study of Women, which afforded me the opportunity to learn about contemporary issues in gender studies. Currently, I'm in the process of obtaining a certificate in the UCLA Program for Experimental Critical Theory, which covers a range of topics in philosophy and critical theory. Throughout my academic career, I never stopped expanding my intellectual horizons. As a tutor, I intend to foster intellectual curiosity and promote creative experimentation.

During my eight years of experience as a teaching assistant and visiting lecturer, I have taught subjects as diverse as American film history, French cinema and culture, and psychoanalytic theory. Although I'm accustomed to engaging with large and diverse groups of students, I have always sought to give personalized attention to each one of them during my office hours. In particular, I'm used to providing a careful guidance during the essay-writing process, stimulating original ideas while offering useful tips on how to articulate them in a clear and cogent manner. Whether your assignment involves a critique of Kant's philosophical enterprise, a careful reading of Joyce's novel, or a formalist analysis of Hitchcock's film, I intend to enthusiastically guide you every step of the way until your ideas take the form of a coherent and convincing argument.

As a bilingual scholar, fluent in both English and Russian, I understand the challenges involved in studying subjects in a language other than your native one. For this reason, I was always able to establish rapport with international students who usually require an additional help with their papers. As a tutor, I'm prepared to assist students with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, teach English as Second Language, and offer useful tips on TOEFL and other standardized tests. Conversely, I'm also looking forward to working with English speakers interested in studying Russian.

I'm prepared to work with students of all ages and academic levels. If you wish to learn more about me and find out whether I can meet your specific needs, please feel free to contact me via email!
