About Ruford

I love education and learning. In fact, knowledge is a lifelong pursuit that never ends. I would love to impart my knowledge to another disciple of knowledge. I have worked as a tutor before using this website, but that was before I graduated. I currently hold a Bachelors of Arts in Russian. Russian is a complex language for Americans. I love the Russian language and aspire to translate/interpret. I also have a minor in French. I can tutor in both of these languages.

I'm an enthusiastic tutor. It brings me happiness to help another person learn. I would love to help in any way possible. I understand the nuances of language that foreigners tend to struggle with. I like to rise to the challenge of finding new ways to explain grammar to make it easily understood. I can instruct anyone, from novice to advanced. Even if you have not studied either of these languages, I will start with the basics.

I earned a Bachelor's of Arts in Russian language. I studied Russian intensively in 2010. I also earned a double minor in French & Arabic. I am currently working towards earning interpreter/translator certification in Russian, hence I am looking for some type of work experience. My knowledge of grammar in Russian and French is respectable. I also communicate effectively in Russian and French. I can help with grammar study, essay writing, and conversation. I can help anyone with no prior knowledge of these languages.

I am currently studying to take the TOEFL myself. I am a native English speaker, therefore I have a slight advantage. But I will gain certification nontheless to be able to conduct test preparation.

I am extremely helpful and willing to accommodate. I care more about the experience than my earnings. I am willing to commute around Des Moines. My schedule is very flexible currently.

Russian

I completed a Bachelor's of Arts in Russian at University of Iowa. I studied Russian intensively during summer 2010, earning a full years' worth of college credit in two months. I was chosen to partake in a study abroad grant to Russian for a month in 2011. Since having graduated, I am working towards becoming a translator. I still have Russian acquaintances with whom I practice.
