Hi, my name is Alisa, and I'm a linguaholic! I’m originally from Russia where I majored in linguistics and interpreting of Russian, English, and French. I started teaching English as a private tutor in 2003, and from 2008 to 2010 I worked as an English instructor at a private language school in Russia. This is where I realized that teaching is what I’m most passionate about. I absolutely love it!

In late 2010 I became the manager and director of studies at a different private language school where I continued teaching English and developed new teaching methods and techniques. In 2012 I moved to the United States where I started teaching Russian (all levels) and French (entry level) and continued teaching English.

Teaching and learning foreign languages is my lifetime passion! I’m learning Spanish and Turkish right now which puts my total at five languages. Next on the list – Chinese and Italian!

Learning a foreign language can be very challenging, and I want to help you make it a fun and rewarding experience.

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I got my Master's Degree in Linguistics and Interpreting of Russian, English and French languages. I have 3 TESL certificates from Cambridge University (TKT - Teaching Knowledge Test). I've been teaching English as a second language to children and adults since 2003. I'm completely in love with teaching (and learning) foreign languages.

French

I got my Master's Degree in Linguistics and Interpreting of Russian, English and French Languages. I've just started teaching French as a foreign language. I've been teaching English as a second language since 2003 and Russian as a foreign language since 2012. I love teaching (and learning) foreign languages and I know it can be very challenging - that's why I'm here to help you.

Piano

I studied piano, solfege, choir, and music literature for eight years at the Zelenogorsk Music School in Russia, which is a traditional Russian piano school. I graduated summa cum laude in 2002. I use a blend of the traditional Russian piano technique and the Faber Piano Adventures Method when I teach. Piano lessons are 30 minutes.

Russian

Russian is my native language. I majored in linguistics and interpretation of Russian, English and French. I've been teaching Russian as a foreign language since September 2012.

Kids loved her! — Alisa did a great job teaching the kids piano. She was very patient and adapted to each of the kid's level of ability. She also communicated with me afterwards to setup the next lessons and was very friendly. She also communicates via text, which I love! We are all looking forward to the next lesson! ...
