I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, where I attended the prestigious Herzen's Pedagogical State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and Foreign Languages. When I moved to the United States in 2005, I pursued a second degree in music, specializing in vocal performance and opera. I graduated cum laude from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I have taught both English as Foreign Language while in Russia, and Russian language and diction in the United States. I combine my passion for music and language with an individualized approach to each student.

Russian

I am qualified to teach Russian because I am not only a native speaker (having been born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia), but also because I received a Bachelor of Arts in Language and Literature from a prestigious Herzen's Pedagogical University. On many occasions, I have taught both English as a
Foreign Language (while in Russia) and Russian language and diction, while in United States. I especially enjoyed teaching Russian diction to American singers when I attended the University of North Texas as a music major.
