I am an American who took an interest in the Russian language in High School and served as a Russian Linguist and Interpreter for 20 years in the US Army. I taught the Russian Basic Course at the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey in Monterey California for three years. The Defense Language Institute is the largest language Institute in the world and produces students that are proficient in the Russian language (as well as others) within 47 weeks.

As an American native speaker and language learner I have great insight to the difficulties of learning the Russian language as an American and I have developed methods of learning that Russian native speakers do not have. At Monterey, I achieved the level of Master Instructor, a distinction earned by very few Military Language Instructors.

I spent 8 years serving as Interpreter on an International Arms Control Treaty Verification Team at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency under the State Department.

I am offering my services as a tutor because I miss teaching.
