My name is Katya and I am currently a graduate student of International Relations at American University. I have extensive experience working with students, as I have previously served as a graduate assistant, as well as foreign language tutor. The subjects which I most frequently tutor include Russian, Ukrainian, Statistics (Stata, SPSS) and Political Science.
When I first start to work with a student, I like to discuss his or her expectation and learning objectives in order to formulate my teaching strategies. Usually, I employ different teaching methods during my lessons, depending on the needs and learning style of a student. Nevertheless, I believe that practice makes perfect, and therefore frequently assign practice exercises for students to work on outside the tutoring sessions. Additionally, I try to provide my students with tools needed to continue exploring a subject on their own, after culmination of our sessions.
After each session, I like getting feedback from my students, so we can adjust the employed teaching tactics according to their needs.
I am a native Russian speaker, as I was born and finished 7 grades in a Russian-speaking region of Ukraine. I have a graduate certificate in Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies, obtaining which required a Russian language proficiency exam, which I took and passed. Additionally, I have been tutoring two high school students in Russian for two years now.
