About Trevor

I am a teacher in Easton, CT and former Russian translator. I have lived in both Italy and Russia and speak these languages fluently. I hold an International Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate from BridgeTEFL as well as a B.A. in Russian and Eurasian Studies from Bard College.

My multimodal approach to tutoring prepares the student for various situations, including the workplace, school, and everyday conversation. I have experience tutoring children and adults in Russian, Italian, and ESL.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am in the process of getting my International TEFL certification. I have 2 years experience of teaching English to non-native speakers. I am able to teach business English, colloquial English, formal English, and legal terminology. I take a multimodal approach by integrating film and news segments into grammatical exercises and essay writing. Such a dynamic approach allows my students to have overall confidence in their English skills.

Italian

Studied Italian for three years and lived in Sicily for one year through AFS Intercultural Programs.

Proofreading

I did an AFS study abroad program in Italy for one year in high school. I speak the language fluently. I tutored in Italian from 2008-2009. I have passed the B2 level of CILS exam.

Reading

Russian and Eurasian Studies (Language and Literature Major)

Russian

I studied in Russia twice (for a semester) and for a summer and speak the language fluently. My major was in Russian and Eurasian studies, so I have a diverse knowledge of literary and colloquial Russian. I received the Jennifer Day Scholarship from Bard College for my Russian language skills.
