Are you passionate about learning English as a second language or the Russian language?
I am passionate about you learning too! I've taught English to both classrooms of students as well as individually for the past 5 years. I've also taught Russian to several individuals over the past 10 years.
I have taught classroom ESL and tutored ESL for over 5 years with students ranging in age from 13-55. I have worked for elementary schools, a private English language institute, a private college, and a non-profit organization. I am currently in a TESL Master's program and tutoring on the side.
I have tutored basic Russian to several individuals over my 10 plus years of exposure to the Russian language and its people. I initially learned Russian through a two-year immersion program in Vladivostok, Russia. Since that time, I have taken several Russian courses to stay brushed up on the language as well as have continued to speak to Russian speakers conversationally over the past 15 years.
I love to enable new learners to progress in their love for, ability in, and confidence in the language!
Over the course of teaching ESL (English As A Second Language), I have taught many of my students proper essay format, good English grammar and sentence structure, as well as understandable content.
While attending graduate school at CSU, I worked with undergraduate and graduate students as a writing consultant in CSU's writing center. My consultations with students primarily helped them become better writers through constructive suggestions/observations about their papers content, flow, and focus.
Also, while working in CSU's writing center, I tutored a Chinese student with his English writing. After a semester of tutoring, he was able to enter an English Composition class necessary for his progress towards his degree.
