About Frieda

My name is Frieda. I am originally from the former Soviet Union, where I earned my degree in chemical engineering. I have lived in this country for 36 years and worked as a chemical engineer throughout this time. Russian is my primary language but I have been fluent in English for over 30 years. To regularly keep up my language skills, I read Russian books and newspapers, and speak the language on a daily basis among friends and family.

I have recently retired from my career in chemistry and am seeking part time work to help others improve their Russian language skills. I would love to share my knowledge with others and I feel that Russian is a wonderful and exciting language. I also enjoy meeting and working with new people, and so tutoring felt like a good fit. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at anytime.

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.

Russian

I feel I am very well qualified to teach Russian because it is my native language. I speak it on a daily basis, and continue to read and write in the language as well. I have used Russian extensively throughout my education, and have also become fluent in English when I arrived in the United States. This combined fluency in both Russian and English I feel places me in a unique position to help students learn the Russian language quickly and easily. I have also taught my children the language, and am working on teaching my grandaughter as well.
