About Martin

My language proficiency can be measured by my Defense Language Proficiency Test scores for Russian, which are Reading:4, Listening:4, Speaking:4. I have experience teaching adults; specifically, I have taught over 500 military and civilian students during 250+ hours of classroom instruction at an award-winning DoD language center in Maryland.

As a lifetime language learner, I understand how important it is to have a balanced approached to language acquisition. Gone are the days of rote memorization and drilled grammar rules. Students benefit most from a combination of native-level conversation and logical explanation of cultural-linguistic norms. Due to my unique experience of in-country residence, at-home immersion and military linguistic training, I am able to provide a perspective on the Russian language that leads to students understanding the language better, in all of its nuance.

The results that this type of approach produced while I worked with military and civilian students have been unequivocally successful. Many students commented that their test score improvement was due to finally understanding features of the Russian language that had never been adequately explained before.

Please contact me for individual lessons. I would be happy to help you achieve your academic and professional goals.

Russian

While still serving on active duty in the military, I completed the highest qualifications possible as a Russian Interpreter/Translator at the Defense Language Institute's Russian Speaking Proficiency Course, graduating top of the class. I also worked as a certified Russian Language Instructor and curriculum developer for two years, teaching active duty service members and DoD civilians. I also obtained native-level knowledge of the Russian language and culture from over seven years residing in Russian-speaking countries.
