About Alina

Over the years, I have taught at three UC campuses and a number of Community Colleges, each time offering new courses in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences, Writing (including creative writing) and Foreign Languages (particularly ESL, Russian and Spanish). I am a published author, and I have received a number of teaching awards and recognitions because, simply, teaching is my passion.

I believe that true learning occurs only when a subject becomes relevant to the student. This relevance rests in direct correlation to a student's natural talents and inclinations. Thus, the cornerstone of my teaching consists of observing my students' learning styles and adjusting the teaching to just the right degree of challenge.

I am generally available for tutoring every day starting at 9 a.m., and I can travel to students or meet them online. My base rate is $65/hr for in-person lessons or $40/hr for online lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Archaeology

I have a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Art and Archaeology from UC Berkeley, and have conducted a 10-year excavation with the Berkeley team in the Republic of Armenia.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified ESL teacher, and I have privately tutored ESL to college students and adults since 2001.

Russian

I am fluent in Russian and have lived in Moscow for four wonderful years. I have experience successfully teaching Russian language to students. References are available.

World History

I have taught World History and Heritage at UC Merced.

Writing

I am a published author of both fiction and academic articles, and a long-time tutor of English language and composition. I present my students with an easy-to-follow method of approaching writing that will make it an easy and fun process.
