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.

ESL/ESOL

I taught English as a Second Language for close to ten years while living in Russia.

I have taught adults (students and professionals), children, and teenagers and worked one-on-one and also in a classroom setting.

I've taught general English, business English, TOEFL and FCE preparation, writing, and conversational English.

I bring spontaneity, a sense of humor, creative spirit, a supportive and friendly attitude, and curiosity to my classes.

I'd be happy to submit references upon request.

Russian

I have been speaking and working with Russian for over twenty years. While I have only tutored people in Russian on a few occasions in that period, I have ten years experience as a teacher of ESL and as a facilitator and trainer that I draw on in tutoring.

My knowledge of the language is also informed by having lived in Russia for ten years, from 1997 to 2006.

Also, I have worked as a Russian interpreter interpreter at international conferences and edited the translation of four training manuals, one book, and other materials into Russian.

When I work with a student, I aim to make the lessons as student-directed as possible.

I bring spontaneity, a sense of humor, creative spirit, and also a healthy rigor to my lessons.

I'm happy to provide references attesting both to my knowledge of the language and also addressing my ability as a teacher/tutor.
