My name is Natalya. I am a U.S. naturalized citizen, a native of Ukraine, fluent in Russian, English, Ukrainian, and currently studying Hebrew.
I graduated from Governors State University (GSU), University Park, Illinois earning a Master of Arts Counseling, Community Track and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. During the master's program, I was awarded three academic tuition waivers based on academic excellence and graduated with high honors in the bachelor's program. Before transferring to GSU, I was enrolled at Joliet Junior college, Joliet, Illinois and was awarded a Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship for two consecutive years and named in the National Dean's List.
I am a freelance translator/interpreter/tutor having a passion for bereavement counseling and a professional member of The Chicago Area Translators & Interpreters Association, Chicago, Illinois and the American Counseling Association, Alexandria, Virginia.
As a translator/interpreter, I work as a Senior Researcher focusing on Voice of the Customer (VOC) research and conduct customer interviews in the Russian language for a firm in Chicago. Freelance private clients include assisting immigrants with USCIS forms, interpreting church services, traffic court appearances, and translating documents and correspondence.
My tutoring experience extends from elementary to adult at all levels of language skill. I have publicly tutored Russian 101 courses at Joliet Junior College and a number of former students continued their studies as private clients. I was a substitute teacher for Morris area private grade schools and familiar with adult GED testing and assessments.
Each client comes with a variety of skills, education, work experience, and range in age from a child to adult. The first initial session is free and will give me a feel for your language skills, your expectations, and can tailor a lesson plan to meet your needs. We can discuss: schedules, locations to meet, and lesson materials. Tutoring will be conducted in a public venue such as a library, church, school, college, park district, etc. Located in Morris, IL, I prefer not to travel too far and will consider meeting you part way.
I am a native speaker of Russian and Ukrainian with tutoring experience from elementary to adult in both languages and English as a second language. I have tutored at college level both in public and private atmospheres.
I have Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Master of Arts in Counseling, Community Track from Governors State University, as well as a Certificate of Proficiency in English from Cambridge University.
I work as a freelance translator/interpreter and specialize in Voice of the Customer (VOC) market research conducting interviews in the target language. I have assisted clients with immigration procedures, court appearances and religious functions.
Tutoring is not only my job, it is my passion. I enjoy assisting others in achieving their educational and career goals.
