About Alex

I was born in Ukraine. Russian is my native language. I grew up in Russia and know Russian culture, language, customs, history and daily life as a native. I studied Russian history, culture and language on an undergraduate and graduate levels in Russian academia. I comprehend and can explain specifics of Russian social intercourse culture and public communication traditions. If you are interested in studying Russian language, I can help you if you are a beginner or if you are seeking professional advancement. I extensively use audio and video materials in my lessons, so that my students can learn pronunciation, vocabulary and communication culture from the original sources. If you need tutoring in humanities, history, culture and Russian language, you are most welcome to contact with me via Wyzant.com.

I am generally available for tutoring every day. I may travel to meet a student in person in the greater SF area. However, modern age of computer technology allows to communicate online and I can suggest tutoring in Russian over Skype, as well. For each particular study program I offer a personalized study package.

I have ample of teaching experience, mostly on the college level. Since 1990s I worked as a college teacher in Russia, Europe and the USA. I practiced different teaching methodologies and crafted various study programs, and course syllabi in history, literature, social studies and languages. The last original study program I've conducted in 2014 at Colorado State University for the International Center of German-Russian Studies.

I believe that today generation of American youth is making a historical step into the era of globalization and need to know much more about the rest of the world than the generation of their parents. "Global" is getting in charge, promoting diversity and replacing traditional notion of "national." Knowledge of other cultures and languages is practically useful today in every profession. A businessman or a musician, a software engineer or a medical professional should have global perspective to be successful in today reality. I studied globalization professionally, and experienced it personally. I may open the world to you, making you a success in your future professional field, and I am willing to do so, by sharing my knowledge and experience. I am looking forward to hear from you, and helping you to thrive in your field of study.
