I am well versed in the culture and history of Russia, and especially Central Asia.
I am willing to travel. I prefer to work with senior executives who require assistance in Russian-related endeavors and who have limited time.

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 graduated from the Russian language course at the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, CA with a 3/3/3 (which is the highest proficiency for a non-native speaker under the US government's testing battery).
I attended additional academic study at the George C. Marshall Center in Garmisch, Germany to improve language proficiency under Russian instructors.
I received a Master of Arts from Stanford University in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, including courses in Russian poetry.
I have traveled extensively throughout the former Soviet Union and have used Russian frequently and fluently throughout the past ten years.
I have received commendations for being Instructor of the Year in 2007 at the Reserve Joint Intelligence Traiing Facility, MacDill AFB, Florida (course was on Central Asia and not in Russian, but indicative of my qualifications as an instructor).
