About Elena

I am a freshman undergraduate student at Boston University, majoring in violin performance and Japanese linguistics! Though I do have my driver's license, I do not have a car with me on campus, so hopefully potential students will be within walking distance. Also, I would prefer meeting in a public setting rather than in a student's home, simply for safety reasons! There are several libraries on campus and nearby that would be available for holding lessons.

I have experience tutoring in each field I have mentioned. I get along very well with people of all ages, and enjoy connecting with students as we discover which methods best facilitate their learning. I am patient, understanding, and a hard worker, so even if we stumble upon a particularly tricky subject, I will make sure to discover the best way to explain it!

I am a native English speaker, and, during a school trip to Japan, I had the opportunity to tutor Japanese students in their English class. It was a wonderful experience, and the results of my efforts were noticeable almost immediately. I have always performed exceptionally well in language arts classes during my academic career.

I have studied Japanese for five years, and am able to confidently hold full conversations with native Japanese speakers. I have been to Japan, and did a homestay while I was there.

I have studied the violin for thirteen years and have been performing throughout my whole musical career. I have performed in chamber, quartet, trio, symphonic, and solo settings, within my high school's advanced orchestra, my local youth symphony, two professional symphony orchestras, and two university orchestras. I also have a lot of experience in musical theater, and greatly enjoy performing in pit orchestras.

I am very eager to meet students and set up lessons! While I still have a lot to learn as a student myself, I would like to pass on any knowledge I have acquired and experience the joy of watching students grow and learn.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am a Native English speaker, and have tutored for ESL students in the past.

Violin

I have been studying the violin for over 13 years, and am currently a music performance major at my university. My experience spans solo, chamber, large ensemble, and theatrical performance, and I am well-versed in many different styles of music.

Great tutor

She is really patient with me. She is knowledgeable of Japan. We scheduled another appointment. I can't wait to visit Japan. I learned honorifics some of the alphabet and there are 3 alphabets, I learned about calligraphy, and I learned greetings. We met two more times and she is really patient with me. I now have the formula to do a multitude of things like counting in Japanese.
