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.

ESL/ESOL

Currently, most of my teaching load shifted in this direction. I enjoy immensely working with diverse students. In return, I give them the gift of speaking English. I use a direct method whenever I can, unless I work with true newcomers.

German

Origianlly, I came to this country from a town that has deep German roots. Before WWII, it was called Koenigsberg. The city that could boast seeing Schiller, Immanuel Kant, and Otto von Bismark walking its streets. German was part of my life starting from 5th grade on. German was my major at Kaliningrad State University as well as Winona State University. While in Koenigsberg, I also had to serve as a translator/interpreter at the Biology department, where my father worked as a Dean, helping him with student exchange groups visiting between Koenigsberg and Cologne.

Grammar

I have studied languages all my life since I was a little girl. Grammar has been an integral part of my learning 4 different languages. I understand and apply it effortlessly.

Russian

I am a native Russian. My first 5-year-bachelors degree is from Kaliningrad State University, Kaliningrad, Russia, where I studied Pedagogy and majored in English and German. I had a one year teaching experience at a High School there prior to coming to Minnesota in 1995. Since then, I taught Russian to adults in Minneapolis, MN, for a couple of years at Bukvar Russian school. My son was attending the school there on the weekends and I volunteered to teach adults that signed up for classes.

Spanish

I have B.S. degree in teaching Spanish, German and ELL from WSU, Winona, MN.I have teaching licences for Spanish, German and ELL in two states: Wisconsin and Minnesota. Every other semester I teach a section of Spanish 101 at WSU here in town as an adjunct instructor.

TOEFL

Prior to coming to the US, I had to take the TOEFL myself. That was my first experience. I also helped a number of international students to get ready for theirs. I have a solid background in English grammar and reading comprehension.

Writing

My M.A. was in Composition and Literature. I had to design my own writing classes for Freshman Comp 101. I taught that class at WSU for a number of years. As A Grad Assistant, I also worked in the Writing Lab.
