About Ilona

Dear Students,

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.

Do vstrechi!

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 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.
