After living in Russia for two years, while intensively studying Russian, I returned home to teach it professionally for 2 more while finishing up my Russian degree. I have taught students of practically every age from 19-70. I also have extensive experience teaching English as a second language so I have a broad understanding of teaching languages in general.
Musically, I have performed on the national stage and have been a songwriter from the age of 12.
I don't know why, but math just clicks with me and I have helped many others grasp the concepts the way I do because of my teaching ability; being able to explain something clearly and logically.
Teaching is my passion. I have over 7 years of teaching experience in multiple disciplines, but so as not to stretch myself too thin, I have selected to do only Russian, Music, and Math. I do, however, offer other skills, especially writing if this is a skill you are looking for.
I look forward to meeting you!
I have an ACTFL Advanced Level Russian Certificate.
OPI: Advanced Mid
WPT: Intermediate High
I have a BA in Russian from Brigham Young University. I spent two years living in Russia, intensively studying, conversing and teaching in Russian every day.
I was a Russian Language Instructor at Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT. I spent 2 years teaching 19 year olds and senior citizens in Russian, including developing The Grammar Guide, now used for the instruction of all students.
