About Marie

Are you interested in learning Italian or Russian, prepping for a language exam, or simply beefing up your language skills before embarking on a trip to either of these countries? I'm here to help! As a native Russian speaker, I have lots of experience with the language, literature, and culture of Russia, and would love to share it with you. Having spent a year abroad in Italy, I am also fluent in Italian. I have a lot of experience teaching in various contexts, from teaching foreign language in a private elementary school to tutoring art history to college students. While focusing a lot on grammar and reading comprehension, I develop my students' conversation skills by speaking to them as much as possible in the foreign language they are learning. This allows them to build up confidence as well as develops their listening skills.

I am also a pianist and have a degree in music from Wellesley College. I have participated in multiple competitions and recitals throughout my career as a musician, and now offer private piano lessons for children.

If any of this sounds inspiring, please let me know, and I would love to work with you!

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.

Piano

I have a degree in Music from Wellesley College and have been playing the piano for more than 18 years, participating in multiple competitions and recitals throughout my career. Currently, I offer private piano instruction for all ages.

Russian

I am a native Russian speaker and have spoken, read, and written in Russian all my life. A couple of years ago, I successfully completed a Russian proficiency exam at NYU. I also have experience teaching Russian in a variety of contexts, both in class environments as well as privately.
