I graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester NY, with Master's in Education, majoring in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages. I am looking forward to finding tutoring opportunities as a New York State certified English as a Second Language and Literacy (ESL/ESLL) teacher.
Additionally, I would like my future students to know that my native language is Russian. I graduated from the State Pedagogic University in Kishinev, Moldova, majoring in Russian language and literature. For many years I taught Russian to both native and non-native Russian speakers. I am passionate about teaching Russian to students ages 5 to 85!
