Dear future students,
I am a Russian & German speaker, eager to share my knowledge. Both are languages I majored in as an undergraduate, but my connections with them are more intimate.
German is my native language, and I have lived in Germany for 3 different semesters, and visited there most summers to keep in touch with my family.
Russian I started as early as Junior High and completed 10 years of before moving to Moscow to pursue a job at Language Link, as a Director of International Programs, which required me to use the language on a daily basis for two years.
I tutored English while in Russia, and Russian to beginner and advanced high school and college students back in the US. (My mother worked as a high school teacher of Russian for nearly 35 years, so my exposure to Russia and Russian speakers began early).
I have a Master's Degree in Russian, Eastern European, and Central Asian Studies at the University of Washington and am pursuing tutoring outside of my 9-5 job to keep my own language skills active.
I look forward to meeting you!
