I am passionate about all things LANGUAGE, culture, and travel! Though a native Russian and English speaker, I also have native-level fluency in Spanish. I studied International Relations in Boston and conducted a sociolinguistics project in Spain and South Africa. My own studies of languages, with tutors and classes, books and travels, as well as my experience tutoring students of many different backgrounds have given me an extensive perspective on language-learning and teaching approaches. All ages welcome! - I have significant experience with children, as well as teenagers and adults. I also regularly conduct lessons through Skype.

Alisa's tutoring sessions were extremely pleasant and enjoyable. Her dedication and great sense of humor made her a perfect teacher for me. If you are looking for someone to go the extra mile, be flexible, and create a positive environment for you, then Alisa is the one you want.
Alisa is a fantastic tutor. My daughter loves her and she has helped her go from a failing grade in Spanish last year to an 80 on her most recent report card. I am so happy that we found her.
I've been taking lessons from Alisa for a couple of months now. She is patient, precise, prepared, encouraging, and altogether great fun to work with. I even think I'm learning something. Highly recommended.
I feel so lucky to have found Alisa to tutor a group of visiting Spanish speaking students (aged 20-30) in English. She was engaging and fun, always came prepared, and was a joy for the students to work with. Further, she always offered to stay after the session with students who had questions, sometimes for as long as half an hour. I would highly recommend Alisa as an ESOL tutor. Thanks, Alisa!
Alisa was a wonderful teacher. I wanted to learn the basics and be conversational as my wife's family is Russian. It was amazing how much I could learn in eight lessons. Alisa was very engaging and easy to work with and is very flexible to meet your schedule. I would recommend Alisa to anyone who wants to learn Russian.
Alisa arrives reliably for each lesson. She is very organized, teaches well and most of all, our daughter likes her a lot.
Alisa took ample time to discuss my learning style and language goals. It is great that she is working with me one-on-one to tailor the tutoring sessions to meet my needs. Not only is her comprehension of the finer points of Russian excellent, but she is also able to explain difficult concepts clearly. She removed any apprehension I had about re-starting a difficult language.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
