My name's Valerie, and not only do I love all aspects of languages, but I also love teaching! I received my undergraduate degree from The New School University, where I majored in Literature. I would love to help you understand or analyze a particular work of literature. I am in the process of getting my Master's Degree from Hunter College, where I'm majoring in ESL and TESOL. If you need help improving your English, working on your grammar, writing, reading, or speaking skills, I will be glad to help. I have over 30 hours of fieldwork experience in NYC public schools. Times and locations are flexible.
Whether you always dreamed of reading the Russian classics of the 19th Century in their original language, getting closer to figuring out the components of the "Russian Soul", immersing yourself in the culture of borscht and pierogi, brushing up on the old, but not forgotten skills, or simply enjoying the feel of a new language, I am here to help you! I am a native Russian speaker with over five years of tutoring experience. I will do my best to make sure that our lessons will not be dense and boring. Instead, they will be filled with bits and pieces of Russian culture, useful grammar, and plenty of speaking opportunities. Times and locations are flexible.
