I am a life-long Moscow resident with a Master of Arts in Philology, specializing in teaching Russian as a Foreign Language (Moscow State Pedagogical University). I also hold a Master of Liberal Arts in Psychology (University of St. Thomas, Houston, TX). Teaching is my passion and love. I started tutoring when I was 17; I got my first teaching position when I was 21. Today, at the age of 29, I teach Russian at University of St. Thomas.

My teaching experience with groups and individuals of different ages allows me to understand each student's needs. The course will be professionally tailored to fit your goals and wishes. I will help you to learn the Russian language in a way that is understandable. Together we will also explore the Russian culture, literature and even history. Learning can be fun! You live a new life for every new language you speak. Why wait? Start now!
