I am a Russian native and a total professional. I am articulate whether in my native language or in English, one-on-one with a student or in class. I taught Russian and English languages to high school students for over ten years. I developed and taught a course in Russian Language and Culture at a technical college for four years. I have been commended for my organizational skills, content, and pedagogical knowledge, and interpersonal rapport.
My teaching philosophy is holistic: I teach not only academic content, but also encourage the intellectual, emotional, and moral growth of my students.
