About Tanya

I was born in Leningrad, which you now know as St. Petersburg, Russia. I fell in love with the English language and spent years in independent study while raising my children. Once they were old enough, I re-entered university to study to become a linguist specializing in English.

Even before attaining my degree, I began taking on students as a tutor of English to Russian speakers, and spent hours a day reading and working to hone my skills to provide my students with the best learning experience.
I moved to the United States in 2013 to improve my English abilities, while there I assisted FEMA after hurricane Sandy to work with the large Russian-speaking community in Brooklyn, NY. I now live in Columbia, MD with my husband. I still have one student in St. Petersburg, whom I teach using Skype. It was a challenge to make the adjustment from giving lessons in person, to doing it remotely.
I am new to teaching Russian to native English speakers, but believe my knowledge and depth of experience will provide my students with rich experience with the Russian language.

I have my degree in English linguistics from Baltic State Technical University (2013). I traveled to the US to immerse myself in English. I expend a great deal of effort preparing lessons tailored to the needs of my students, and I have 15 years of tutoring experience.

Please feel free to contact me and ask me any questions you may have about how I may be able to help you with learning the Russian language.
