About Allina

Hi! My name is Allina and I was born in Russia. I have three degrees: dental and music colleges received in Russia and BS in Psychology earned in America. So, I'm very fluent in both English and Russian languages. I live in America since 1998 and very much assimilated in the country.

I love learning new languages myself and can easily relate to your passion for foreign languages. I used to be good in Japanese, Tatar, and Uzbek languages.

The payment for the lessons canceled less than 36 hours prior will not be reimbursed! So, please respect your time and money.

What makes me a good tutor?

I'm very attentive to the students' needs: it's very important for me what a student wants to achieve, not what I think is best for her/him. I customize the learning process: we're all different - some have a creative touch, some love numbers, some other things. So, after learning your inclination, I can use it to better deliver the knowledge, so you can digest it faster and easier.
I was an A student in Russian Language and Literature.
I'm non-judgmental, patient, and playful. I'm strict, so slacking will not work with me; besides, it's your money, so please do your homework and be prepared for each lesson.

I'm going to make sure that learning Russian will be fun. As a psychotherapist, I know how the brain works, so I'm going to help you to map new information and move it to long term memory quicker. Come on, let's go! What are you waiting for?

Thank you, Vika! I know that pronunciation is such a hard work; however, you're doing an excellent job putting so much effort into polishing every sound. You're making such a great progress. Great job!

Thank you, Foma. It was a pleasure to find out that you are pretty fluent in Russian and know the grammar so well. I could understand you speaking in Russian very well. And your determination to speak only Russian during a lesson shows how serious you are to perfect your skills. I'm very excited to work on your goals and compare the before and after audios to see the progress in the near future. I'm, too, looking forward to our next lesson.

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.

Russian

I was born in Russia and graduated high school in Russia. A Russian Language and Literature teacher was using me as an example of a good student pretty often. I have also earned two degrees in Russia: BS in dental technician and BA in music.

I have a creative nature and it helps me to customize a learning material for each student.

I have BS in psychology earned in America and it enables me to create techniques to move newly learned material into a long term memory.

I'd be happy to provide copies of my diplomas upon request.

Allina is a very competent and patient tutor! We have been working on my pronunciation and as a non-native English speaker, Allina understands the importance of perfecting this aspect of the language. By focusing on each sound and repeating it several times Allina has helped me to make my Russian sound more natural. I would highly recommend Allina to anyone who is interested in learning this bea
