About Elena

Are you looking for a COOL TUTOR to help you speak English or Russian?
A COOL TUTOR is creative, easy-going, dedicated to your goals, passionate, educated and experienced.
Yes, to speak a language well does not always mean you can teach someone, for you need to know how people learn, so, you need teaching experience.
I have been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and Russian one-on-one and via Skype since 1993, so you may rely on my awareness of students' needs and issues.

I use a flash-card method, Internet resources, videos, songs a lot. I enjoy opening the world through learning languages.

You will always have a constructive and an honest feedback from me.

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 CELTA certified ESL teacher, living in the USA, Boston. With a vast teaching experience in Europe and the US, I teach in person and via Skype.

I believe that learning English helps people to learn more about the world, make new friends, travel, and be more independent.

I do not teach by books. Instead, I help you discover the world by using English.

Contact me to arrange your first lesson with me!

Great tutor

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Elena. I started without any knowledge of Russian. In 2.5 weeks of tutoring, I feel prepared for my trip to St. Petersburg. I highly recommend Elena to anyone looking to learn or improve their Russian conversation skills. She came prepared to each tutoring session with a plan and a patient attitude.
