I graduated with honors from the University of Vermont in 2010, and began attending the Middlebury College Graduate Program in Russian Language in the summer of 2011. My undergraduate degree was in English, with a focus on creative composition, but with a great deal of credits in literary analysis as well. I also took credits equivalent to a major in both Philosophy and Russian studies, studying for one semester in Russia. My teaching experience includes tutoring in Russian at the University of Vermont, filling in for the Professor to teach classes in his absence, and assisting the chair of the department in compiling and designing course materials. I also taught English language to professors at St. Petersburg State University in St. Petersburg, Russia.
I am personable, friendly, well-read, and occupy myself with a wide variety of interests and hobbies, including teaching myself guitar and violin, reading, writing, and studying Russian. I have a great deal of professional experience teaching kids (camp counselor work, tennis and swim instruction, ski instruction, substitute teaching at a high school, etc.), as well as experience teaching adults English.
