If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Russian

I studied Russian history and language as an undergraduate and a graduate student. I have an MA in Russian literature and have studied, for 10 years, the literary movements from the medieval era up to post soviet times. I also have knowledge of linguistics, grammar, and syntax as they relate to many different historical epochs of the Russian language. Questions of style and the influence of French on various 19th century authors was a topic I studied in depth. I am able to tutor in elementary through advanced Russian grammar with an emphasis on conversation through syntax.
