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.

Russian

I am from st. Petersburg, Russia and have a PHD in Russian Literature from the research Institute of Russian Literature (Pushkinsky Dom) of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

I have been teaching for about 15 years while living in Russia: Russian Language, Russian Literature as well as English Language(from Elementary to Intermediate levels), so I have a lot of experience in teaching both my own native language and a foreign language as a second language. To improve my teaching skills I have attended a number of special courses and seminars. After having moved to the US I continued to teach, and worked as a Russian instructor/lecturer in a number of universities and colleges in St. Louis, MO and in NC.

When I teach I always try to include elements of Russian culture and history into my lessons, because I believe that it is impossible to learn a foreign language without understanding national mentality of the people who created that language.

Yelena is a pleasure to work with, and makes language study an enjoyable process! She's always prepared and on time for lessons, and follows up from every lesson with a short summary and homework. I appreciate that Yelena caters every lesson to my ability level and is flexible with my work schedule. Highly recommend!
