About Vita

I am a Russian native speaker with 10+ years of teaching experience. I have BA in Russian (Russia), MA in Teaching Foreign Language (USA) and MSc in Psychology of Language (UK). Currently, I'm working at the two major language schools in the area - Monterey Institute of International Studies and Defense Language Institute.

I work with a broad variety of adult learners, developing individualized curriculum based on student's needs and level. I prepare for standardized tests, as well as work with specific skills (public speaking, academic wiring, etc.) and area of expertise.

I also do editing/revision and translation into Russian.

Outside the working hours, I'm a young, fun person to hang out with. I enjoy yoga and hiking, love cats and great books.

Highly recommended Russian tutor

Wyzant sends me an email asking me to rate my tutor after every lesson. However I thought it best to experience a number of lessons before formulating an opinion and writing a review.
