About Nina

I have considerable experience tutoring and coaching students of all ages in writing, languages, English, grammar, and pretty much everything related to words, language, and grammar. The languages I have taught include Russian, Latin, Hebrew, and French, as well as English. I have taught creative writing, fiction, and poetry, and I have coached people writing their doctoral dissertations. I'm also a professional lexicographer and linguist, as well as a professional writer, editor, and translator. In addition, I'm a homeschooling mom, and as such, I teach homeschooling classes routinely, and these tend to include a wide range of ages.

I have taught in university settings, homeschool cooperatives, private living rooms, and one-on-one settings. Whatever the setting, I start by getting to know my students, their interests and needs, and their learning styles. Then, I base my teaching plans and curriculum on the individual students. I bring a lot of enthusiasm to whatever I teach.

I have an MA in Russian language and literature from Bryn Mawr College, where I also did my undergraduate degree in Russian. I was a Fulbright Scholar, and also did some graduate work in Linguistics at Cornell.

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 have a B.A. And an M.A. in Russian. I am a near-native speaker, living with a native speaker (my husband of 24 years) with whom I converse in Russian routinely. I have taught Russian at both the college and high school level, and have tutored in Russian.
