About Kelly

I started my Russian in high school. Like most students, I had to take a foreign language to graduate.

Now, twenty some years later, I am still using my Russian every day. I hold two degrees in Russian which led to a career working in the newly independent states of the Soviet Union, helping to spread capitalism. I worked with major corporations and investors and also taught small business skills throughout Russia and Central Asia. I returned home and used my Russian in Washington, DC in government positions focused on bilateral relations.

I taught Russian Language and Culture courses at the University of Nevada before moving to Colorado.

I strongly believe in customizing my lessons to meet the student's learning needs. I try to draw comparisons to what you already know, or create new materials to suit how you learn. I started Russian as an English-speaking student myself, so I know that it can be confusing. But, if I can speak Russian, so can you.

I have worked with private students from junior high age to seniors, from traditional students to business and leisure travelers looking for "survival" Russian.

Let me know what your goals are and we can put together a program that will help you get there.

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

My love of the Russian language began in high school when the Soviet Union was still a country. A required foreign language course led to study abroad in Leningrad, a consulting career in Russia and then positions in Washington, DC working on bilateral relations. I have lived in Russia and Central Asia and used my Russian daily for over 20 years. I taught college level Russian in Nevada and have been privileged to work with a variety of clients in Colorado, from business travelers to traditional students.

I am happy to customize my program to your language needs, just drop me a line so we can get started!

The Best — Kelly is an amazing teacher of the Russian language. Being multiligual, herself, she quickly picks up on her student's individual learning strengths and adapts her lesson plans in a way that helps that particular student absorb and learn Russian as quickly and efficiently as possible. I study with Kelly multiple hours per week and wouldn't consider looking for any other teacher. ...
