I have many years of Russian tutoring experience with Berlitz Language School and as a freelancer. My method of teaching is great for beginners, as well as for those who would like to brush up or polish their knowledge of Russian. I can adapt to your needs: besides conversation skills, I teach reading and writing, as well as grammar and literature (for those who are interested).
I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University (M.A. in Structural and Applied Linguistics) and from Harvard University Extension School (Master of Liberal Arts with concentration in Linguistics). For many years I combined my linguistic research work with tutoring Russian at all levels: from 5-year old kids to graduate students and the always busy students of Berlitz Language School. My theoretical background in linguistics is complemented by the Berlitz-style student-centered communicative approach.
