I am a multilingual tutor, fluent in Italian, Russian, and English, intermediate in French and Spanish. I have a CA Teacher's Credential and thus have been fingerprinted and passed a background check. Currently I am employed as a substitute teacher in LBSD and LASD. I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Linguistic University in Belarus, where I gained the knowledge on how to effectively teach foreign languages, literature, and translation techniques to students. In addition, I graduated from CSULB with a Master's degree in Education, Dual Language Development, while at the same time pursuing a Teacher's Credential in Single Subject in teaching languages. I have maintained 4.0 GPA and became a distinguished member of PKP and Golden Key Honor's Societies of Academic Excellence. I also acquired a Certificate in teaching English as a Second Language from Oxford Seminars. I have been tutoring foreign languages for more than 12 years. Most of my students make a great progress and compliment me on making complex material clear, organizing engaging and challenging lessons, tailoring lessons according to their individual needs, and inspiring them to master foreign languages. I use a variety of materials, such as videos, songs, images, and authentic texts. My international experience makes me a unique teacher. I have studied in Eastern and Western Europe and in the USA, which gives me opportunities to select the most effective instructional strategies from around the word and incorporate them in my lessons. I believe you have to love what you do in order to be great at it. I feel very passionate about teaching world languages and cultures and would love to share my knowledge with you!
In addition, I tutor children in a variety of subjects and help them with homework.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. Dear Students!

My rate is subject to change depending on how many lessons a student is planning to take, which language you want to learn, what level you are at, and how far, if at all, I need to travel.
Tatiana is the best Italian teacher/tutor I have ever had. I have had several tutors and not one of them has been able to teach me the way she has. She thoroughly knows her stuff and is able to effectively communicate it. I not only learned and understood more in my visits with her than I ever have before, but I also started to remember why I ever decided to learn Italian. I remembered how much I loved the language. She takes pride in what she does and it is easy to see how much she loves to teach. She went above and beyond to help me and I will never look for any other Italian tutor ever again!
Tatiana is a very accomplished and knowledgeable tutor and I would strongly recommend her. She has the ability to simplify a task and work with any difficulty in pronunciation by suggesting specific movements of the mouth and the tongue. It is unfortunate that my time is so limited that I cannot spend more time learning Russian from magnificent tutor. Business comes first! Thank you Tatiana.
Tatiana is awesome! It will take some time, but I feel confident that with her help I will master Italian! She is very accommodating and worth every penny.
Thank you, Paul! I can't wait to conversate with you in Italian! Soon enough!
It has been a pleasure working with Tatiana. She is a creative and gifted instructor. Tatiana has many years of experience and you can feel it-she always knows the answer to any question you ask, has a ready technique to explain any language phenomenon, knows a variety of teaching methods to ensure you learn what you need. Her calming personality makes you feel comfortable; even when you make mistakes she is patiently explaining the rule again and again if needed. If you want to improve your language skills quickly and enjoy lessons, hire Tatiana.
Tatiana is a very talented teacher with a natural skill. Before Tatiana I tried several other tutors and I can tell that Tatiana is the best beyond doubt. She knows her subject thoroughly. Already at the first lesson I felt I learned a lot and I am sure with her help it is easy to progress fast. It is clear she enjoys teaching and is able to deliver material in an easy-to-understand way. She makes sure you use the language correctly and in case of the repetition of mistakes she explains the rule again and works on it until you use it right. Tatiana’s lessons are entertaining, she incorporates materials from different sources, uses interesting stories to work on, and broadens your knowledge not only in the language, but in the culture as well. In short, if you really want to learn and progress fast, Tatiana is the right teacher to make it happen!
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.
I have been teaching English to speakers of other languages for more than 10 years. I have two Master's: one in Linguistics (English and Italian) and the other one in Education, Dual Language Development. During the University years I studied English grammar thoroughly as well as other aspects of the language (syntax, semantics, phonology, pragmatics, structure, punctuation, spelling, history of the language). I have prepared a great number of students for the exam of TOEFL. I also carry an ESL/ESOL certificate from Oxford seminars.
I am a native speaker of the Russian language. Most of my life I have been dealing with languages and have a Master's Degree in Linguistics. My Mother is a teacher of the Russian Language and Literature, and I learned a lot from her, such as what methods and approaches to use with the students in order to help them succeed in a relatively short period of time. Russian is one of the most difficult languages with a very complex grammar, and one needs to know the structure of the language perfectly in order to be able to convey it to the students in an accessible and clear way. My skills, academic and professional experience make it possible for me to teach efficiently.
