My name is Justin and I am exciting to become your tutor in Russian. In 7th grade I decided to take Russian language for fun; by 8th grade I was obsessed with it. In May, 2012 I returned to the USA after studying my full senior year of college in St. Petersburg, Russia. I came home having written a Russian thesis and advanced language proficiency according to the American Councils for the Teaching of Russian Language (actfl). Now I want to help you achieve your language goals. Whether you are looking for a conversation partner to maintain your intermediate or advanced abilities, or have never seen the Cyrillic alphabet anywhere but on propaganda posters, I will work with you to improve your reading, speaking, and comprehension of the Russian language. After outlining your personal goals, I will design a curriculum tailored to your skills, interests, and your available time. Whether you learn better through games, reading, or worksheets, I am happy to provide you with the tools you'll need to succeed. No purchase of materials required on your part; I only ask for your enthusiasm and excitement to dive into the mystery that is Russia and her language.
I look forward to working with you!
