Elena taught me the Russian alphabet! I am continuing with another tutor who teaches both French and Russian, because those are my two target languages, but I had one lesson with Elena, and it was wonderful. She's a very engaging, charismatic, knowledgable person, who speaks Russian, Mandarin, some Korean, and has a fantastic command of the English language that is really helpful. She is very kind and has a fascinating background, and I can tell that she is really good at motivating her students. She's a really well-organized teacher who also loves Russian literature, and she recommended the Living Language Russian set to me, which is going to be very helpful. She also recommended The Master and the Margarita, which I'm very excited to read. She teaches from the Living Language series, and it was very motivating to hear about her other students' success with the Russian language. I'm sure she would be a great match for any student learning Russian and/or Mandarin.
Elena jumped right in on my son's first Chinese lesson and got busy teaching. He said he liked her. I was very impressed with her communication with us about appointment dates/times, she was on time, professional and pleasent. First impression is very good. If my son likes her and he can learn from her, we have a great fit. Thank you
Elena is very professional and understands my unique needs. A wonderful 1st lesson. I gained a lot from it. Elena is a godsend!
Elena is very professional, she replies to your question questions promptly. She is a great talented tutor that you should not miss.
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 a Bachelor Degree in World History with teaching credentials (Moscow, Russia). Mostly specializing in modern history of Asian continent, but with the great passion for history in general allowed me to complete courses on the European and American history.

I accomplished course of advanced level in Chinese in Tianjin University (China), received a certificate upon completion, and also took classes in economic and trade law for Master degree in Tianjin University (China).

I am Native Russian, have been tutoring Russian language in China and the United States. I am experienced in explaining Russian language grammar and developing spoken language skills.
I helped many students in Russia to prepare for the TOEFL. I know the requirements for the test and usually focus my work on improving the skills in grammar which are necessary for writing and speaking. Also, I work on the structure of the sentences and essays for writing part (which most students find difficult to learn by themselves) and improving speaking skills as during the test participants have very limited time to answer the questions promptly. Preparing for the listening part and reading part, I focus on extending students' vocabulary, which helps them to comprehend and analyze more information during the test. My tutoring experience helped and I believe still can help many students to pass TOEFL successfully.
