Hi, my name is Tania. I am originally from Ukraine where we speak two languages - Russian and Ukrainian. I have taught these languages to American Peace Corps Volunteers in Ukraine for 7 years and since I moved to the U.S. in 2010 I have taught Russian as a private tutor to more than 20 students of different ages and levels of proficiency. Most of my students have been diplomats from the Department of State or college students learning Russian.
I have a degree in foreign languages and a TESOL certificate. I have been teaching English for 10 years. Currently I'm working at one of the language schools in D.C. area. I love working with a group of students, but I also enjoy personal tutoring because it gives a chance to address the specific needs of each student as well as his/her learning styles which leads to best results in a short period of time.
I'm very efficient in teaching grammar, vocabulary expansion and conversation classes, and I always try to make my lessons interesting and exciting, so that the students have fun learning the language.
I'm a committed high-energy individual with distinct people skills. I bring integrity and enthusiasm to my work.
