Bio

Hi! I tutor math (K-12 + college), Russian, and Hebrew. To find out more details about each subject, scroll down below:
Math (K-12 + college): I studied math at a university in Moscow, Russia. In America, I tutored two kids- a boy & a girl- from 1st grade through high school. Over the years, they progressed from just doing homework/classwork to understanding the material and becoming strong problem-solvers.

Math (K-12 + college): I studied math at a university in Moscow, Russia. In America, I tutored two kids- a boy & a girl- from 1st grade through high school. Over the years, they progressed from just doing homework/classwork to understanding the material and becoming strong problem-solvers. I then taught as a tutor in a high school for a year, and then transitioned to teaching students privately over Wyzant for the past 3 years. Everyone has been very successful thus far. I am always ready & willing to teach anyone else who needs my tutoring and is willing to put in the work & effort. I make it my priority to ensure the success of all my students.
Russian: I am a native Russian speaker from Moscow, Russia. I specialize in teaching Russian as a foreign language to all levels. In America, I tutored Russian to a group of businessmen working with Russia. I then tutored over Wyzant for the past 7 years, in which I’ve taught 8 students of all different levels. They all came out fluent, which brought upon them many job opportunities. I personalize my lesson plans to each student and ensure that they’re getting the most out of each lesson. I make it my priority to ensure the success of all my students.
Hebrew: I speak Hebrew as a second language. I studied in Russia to be a Hebrew teacher and traveled to Israel several times. In Russia, I taught Hebrew to students at Touro College, the Joint Charitable Foundation, Yeshiva students at Hillel, and workers at the Israeli Embassy in Moscow. At the Joint Charitable Foundation, I also worked as a translator for an Israeli official. In America, I taught Hebrew over Wyzant for the past 3 years to 4 students. They all came out fluent and achieved many job opportunities. I personalize my lesson plans to each student and ensure that they are getting the most out of each lesson. I make it my priority to ensure the success of all my students.

I found Boris to be one of the most professional, engaging and interesting instructors of Russian

I am a Foreign Service officer who has been studying Russian off and on for twenty years. I have been required to use Russian as part of my regular work duties (the last time four years ago). In preparation for an upcoming assignment, I studied twice a week for about ten months with Boris. At the end of this period, I was able to score at the professional speaking, listening, and reading comprehension level in Russian across the board! I found Boris to be one of the most professional, engaging and interesting instructors of Russian that I have had over the years and I would highly recommend him to anyone who plans to use Russian in a professional environment or who just wants to learn one of the most interesting languages around. Thanks, Boris!

I like his teaching style, it blends well with my learning. He started from my base level of knowledge and builds from there.

Excellent Tutor

My boss has taken several business trips to Russia over the last few years and feels he has learned more in one lesson with Boris than all his trips put together!
