About Rhody

Back in high school I was fortunate enough to live in an area that had quite a diverse population. However, many of the people that I came to know well happened to be Russian speakers; I started picking up bits and pieces of the language in no time. When I entered university, I had an opportunity to actually study the language I was becoming so fascinated with - and I was good at it, too! I went on to major in Russian Language, but not before I studied abroad - from St. Petersburg to Siberia - and fell deeply in love with the culture. I would eventually move to Moscow for 2 years and immerse myself in the language and culture even further.

While living in Moscow, I taught English as a foreign language (business, general, and individual) as a means to live, but in my free time I took lessons myself from some incredible Russian tutors. I became nearly fluent by the time I left the country.

I love tutoring because I love sharing what I learned from my time in Russia: that Russians are more interesting and complex than we give them credit for; that the Russian language is such a storied one and has so many intricacies. I also really enjoy when my tutees share something new with me; I'm a learner just like you!

As your tutor, you can expect steady homework following each lesson, interesting videos in Russian based on what you're studying, and periodic assessments to track your progress.

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 studied Russian language for three years in college - including one semester abroad at Moscow State University - before I moved to Moscow to teach English privately and study Russian full time. By the time I left in 2014, my Russian tutor ranked me at an advanced level. I graduated Florida State University with a degree in Russian Language, a membership in Dobro Slovo - The National Slavic Honor Society, and a minor in Linguistics.
I taught English - professionally and privately - for two years, and have tutored Beginner and Elementary Russian privately for a little over a year. I have my own method for learning declensions and I find it extremely helpful in getting out of the early stages of Russian and into the intermediate level.
The book that I find very useful for our purposes is:
~Russian in Exercises, by S.A. Khavronina
