I'm Alexandra. I am a recent college graduate with a BA in Russian Language and Literature. I'm able to help Russian students of all ages and levels. Whether you are in a university program, or just teaching yourself a new language, I offer fun, interactive lessons to encourage conversation and practice of certain key grammar and vocabulary points. I try to let the student get as much ACTIVE practice reading and writing as possible throughout the lesson. I also try not to teach entirely out of textbooks, and utilize more everyday sources that a native speaker would use, such as songs, movie clips, news articles, kids' books, etc. This way, you also become aware of Russian culture and lifestyle while also consistently being exposed to the language. I'd much rather my student be able to understand the grammar used in a Nautilus Pompilius song than only the content of a textbook that teaches such simple sentences as "Misha went to the store." I have a variety of textbooks, CDs, Movies, novels, poems, fairy tales, etc collected over my lifetime that I use as materials. Just bring yourself!
