I am a Russian language and an ESOL instructor with Russian language native speaking proficiency and language teaching as my core competences. I have a vast experience in teaching students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I received my Bachelor's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the A.I. Hertzen Russian State Pedagogic University in St. Petersburg, Russia, where I also got qualifications and experience in teaching Russian as a foreign language. I received a Ph.D. degree in Foreign Languages (English and French) from the same school. I also received an Oxford Seminars certificate in TESOL/TESL/TEFL with specialization in teaching Business English. I have been actively teaching Russian and ESOL to adults and children of various skills, levels, and abilities. My main mission while teaching the language is to make sure that there is progress every time I meet with my student, for the ultimate goal of exceeding the students' expectations on what they do accomplish while mastering the language I teach.

Wonderful and Patient Tutor!

I have been working with Tatyana for about a year now and she has helped me make significant advancements in my Russian. Since working with Tatyana, my OPI score has improved from 2 to 2+ and my Reading from 1+ to 2+. Not only is she very knowledgeable, as is evident from her background and level of education, but also extremely patient. She's always willing to accommodate my work schedule when able and never exhibits irritation at my many mistakes. She also lets me choose which topics we discuss and uses various materials to cover every modality so I stay engaged with the material. I will be continuing to study with Tatyana for as long as she'll have me!

Steph, 52 lessons with Tatyana

wonderful teacher!

My 5 years old daughter really enjoyed her class and we all know how it is difficult to keep a 5 years old involved in her class for a full hour.

Celine, 1 lesson with Tatyana

Great First Experience!

This was my first ever Russian language lesson; Tatyana was very patient and helpful. I felt very comfortable going over new concepts with her help. I feel like I will learn a lot in future lessons and look forward to continuing my lessons!

Chandler, 1 lesson with Tatyana

Knowledgeable, Accommodating, Patient, and Goes Above and Beyond!

Tatyana has helped me remember Russian Language fundamentals that I learned before, but have forgotten; as well as, teach me new fundamentals, colloquial phrases, better pronunciation, and so much more! I have enjoyed every lesson with Tatyana and have always felt supported, especially when I am nervous. Look no further for a Russian Tutor! Tatyana is perfect for any level!

Anna, 24 lessons with Tatyana

Knowledgeable and patient

Tatyana has been a wonderful Russian language tutor for my 5 year old. She is very patient and works well with her. My daughter enjoys it and says she makes learning fun.

Jennifer, 6 lessons with Tatyana

Knowledge and patient tutor!

Tatyana was great and made successful adjustments on the fly for my personal learning experience. I highly recommend her as an instructor that will meet you in-person and help improve your Russian language skills.

Curt, 9 lessons with Tatyana

Excellent lessons

Tatyana continues to come up with new and imaginative ways to help improve my Russian. This week, for example, we studied newspaper opinion pieces and listened to Russian language podcasts as a way to become acquainted with contemporary vocabulary, including idioms now in fashion. She is an extraordinary teacher.

John, 70 lessons with Tatyana

Amazing teacher

I was looking for a tutor for my small kids age 6 and 8 and was quite nervous to meet Tatyana. It was my first time using Wyzant or hiring tutor via the website. Let me tell you - she exceeded all my expectations . Tatyana was very punctual, professional and great with small kids who grew up in the bilingual family. She makes learning fun and plays with kids while they are learning . She has very impressive educational background and I feel so lucky that we found her. I highly recommend her to anybody and looking forward to work with her in the future

Marina , 12 lessons with Tatyana

Tatyana is excellent!

I've had a handful of lessons with Tatyana, and I can honestly say that I walk away from each of them feeling more and more confident in my Russian abilities. She is very good at explaining difficult grammar concepts clearly and patiently. I do not feel intimidated to speak with her in Russian, and I always get supportive feedback from her on my oral and written skills. I'm comfortable during our lessons but I feel challenged, and the hour always flies by! You'd be remiss not to hire Tatyana as your Russian tutor.
