I have a Bachelor of Music from Miami University, and I can also tutor overall Ear Training. I tested out of all ear training requirements at Miami University, because of extensive learning experiences in Russia. I also have perfect pitch.
I was only eight years old when I emigrated from St. Petersburg, Russia to Cleveland, Ohio. Immediately upon my arrival, I was put in school where I was forced to speak English not only in an academic setting but also for conversational purposes. At such a young age, English came easier to me than it did to my parents, and within a few short months I found myself conversing in a language which was previously foreign to me. Using this newly acquired skill, I was able to assist my parents by translating and interpreting aspects of English that they did not understand. This was the beginning of a life long passion for learning multiple languages and cultures.
I have worked for various international corporations which had employees from all over the world. I have taught adults English and I have also taught younger children. I have specialized experience in teaching ESL to Japanese employees that are brought over to the United States.
I hold a Bachelors degree from Miami University in East Asian Cultures and Languages (Japanese). I spent a year studying abroad in Hirakata-shi Osaka, Japan during my junior year of college. I lived with a host family and developed advanced thinking and speaking skills. I am currently working on my Master's of Foreign Language Education to teach Japanese with a K-12 licensure at The Ohio State University. I have tutored all undergraduate levels of Japanese, as well as various private students of different ages ranging from 12-adult.
I hold a Bachelor's degree of Music in Piano from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I have been musically trained since age 4 in St. Petersburg, Russia, and continued my studies when I moved to the US over 13 years ago. I have taught piano lessons to various age groups, and am currently teaching a 5 year old and a 7 year old.
I moved from St. Petersburg, Russia to the US when I was 8 years old; therefore I speak, write, and read fluent Russian, and communicate in it daily to my friends and family.
I have also tutored all levels of Russian Language at Miami University Rinella Learning Center in Oxford, Ohio.
I have been studying music for over 17 years. I have a Bachelor of Music from Miami University, and can also tutor Sight Singing. I tested out of all ear training and Sight Singing requirements at Miami University, because of extensive learning experiences in Russia. I also have perfect pitch.
