International Academy of Marketing & Management, Moscow, Russian Federation (Management)
I will be happy to assist you in learning Russian or Ukrainian language. I lived in Ukraine most of my life, and attended university in Moscow, so I am fluent in both languages. I have years of experience assisting native English speakers who travel to Ukraine as tourists. Although I do not have formal training in philology, I certainly have a wealth of first-hand knowledge about the culture, customs, and traditions of the Russian and Ukrainian people, and this will shine through in my lessons.
As far as experience, I am just beginning my career as a tutor -- currently I am assisting my husband's family in learning Russian, so they can converse with their in-laws in Moscow. I will adapt the lessons to meet the desired goal of each student, whether it be to pass a college or graduate-level course, practice conversation, or prepare for travel. I can teach you all the colloquialisms and colorful expressions (which aren't in the textbooks) that so enrich the Russian language.

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.
I am a native speaker of Russian and Ukrainian, having lived in western Ukraine for the first 28 years of my life. I completed elementary and high school in Ukraine, and a Master's degree in Moscow. I am currently assisting my in-laws in learning basic Russian. I have also assisted several English-speaking tourists traveling in Ukraine.
