My interest in languages/communication and cultural exchange began in Baku where I learned Russian and Turkish as a high school student. I sought opportunities outside the classroom, immersing myself in community outreach and teaching projects with international organizations such as Soros Net and the American Center. During this time, I affirmed my dedication to the practice of grassroots organizing and discovered a vocation in working with diverse populations to effect change through projects. After finishing Azerbaijan’s compulsory military service requirement, I completed two-terms as a language/cultural facilitator with the US Peace Corps, exhibiting a strong work ethic in both individual and group collaboration settings. As a project manager for “Teaching Through Travel,” a Democracy Commission / US Embassy-sponsored Peace Corps Volunteer project, I demonstrated leadership as well as a capacity to bring internationally and ethnically diverse communities to further local youth education. Through all these positions, I developed the experience, personal focus and technical skills of an educator.

In December 2011, I relocated to the United States as a legal permanent resident where I continue to apply my faculty for language acquisition, studying Latin-American Spanish. Having acquired authorization to work in the United States, I garnered further insight into the nuances of cultural exchange and interpersonal communication over the past 14 months of work. I look forward to applying them as I pursue my long-term professional goals in the field of teaching/translating languages.

Russian

To Whom It may concern;

I am Oruj G., a speaker of 5 languages and one of which is Russian language. I worked for Peace Corps overseas as a language and cultural teacher. I started learning and speaking Russian when I attended kindergarten. My classes were mostly in Russian language during high school. As a Peace Corps employee, I utilized my Russian language skill to interpret and also teach students in the local high schools. Later I worked for language teaching center in Azerbaijan, a country bordering Russia, to teach students Russian grammar, vocabulary and conversation making abilities. I worked with a wide range of students ages between 6- 50 years old. I regularly tutor students either preparing to take a test or planning to travel to the Russian speaking countries.


All the best,
Oruj G.

I am a near native speaker of turkish language. I taught many languages including Turkish language. My language teaching experience started in Azerbaijan, providing private tutoring to high school and college students. The languages instructed include Russian, Turkish, Azeri and English. Furthermore, I worked for US Peace Corps teaching americans the local language and culture before they were sworn in as Peace Corps volunteers. I speak Turkish, English and Russian fluently not to mention that Azeri is my native language. In addition, I am highly conversational in spanish and arabic languages.
