About Alexander


The past ten years I have been teaching Russian to kids and adults - I've been working at a language school in Arlington, VA, that provides training courses to future diplomats and military personnel.

People come to me with non-existent knowledge and I am tasked with teaching them reading, writing, speaking and cultural norms - so as to prepare them for diplomatic work in one of the former Soviet republics.

Between lessons with adults, I teach Russian to my grand-daughters and tutor kids between the ages of 6-18 in Russian language and history.


Using Russian books and newspapers, Russian TV, internet Russian language resources, and a vast amount of conversation - so, my teaching methods span between using Internet assets and lots of one on one talk.


Before moving to the US I was an history and language teacher (as well as school administrator in high school) in the public school system in Kaliningrad, Russia.

I graduated from the Moscow Pedagogical University in Moscow with a Master's degree in Russian history and language education.
