Russian:
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.

Music:
Musically, I have performed on the national stage and have been a songwriter from the age of 12.

Math:
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:
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!
