About Elena

As a Russian native speaker with a Master of Arts in French, and a Bachelor of Arts in teaching, I have more than 25 years of extensive professional experience in tutoring various levels of French and Russian. I believe that with the right teacher, any one is able to learn. I can make learning an enjoyable experience for you, since I know the culture and history of French and Russian speaking countries. I am a language enthusiast, constantly challenging myself with learning new foreign languages, so I know how lost one can be when facing an unknown language.

I came to Lincoln, Nebraska in 1991 to work on my graduate degree in French literature and culture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As a graduate teaching assistant, I taught French 101 and 102, as well as assisted Russian professors. I spent many office hours helping my students fill in the gaps in their learning process.

After I received my Master degree, I worked for 16 years as a French and Russian mentor for Lincoln Public Schools’ Gifted program. During this time, I also taught Russian at Northeast High school.

In 2007, I decided to take my career in a different direction, and spent 6 years working in the Information Technology industry. There, I acquired many useful skills as a Quality Control Engineer, testing software. I am very proficient in Microsoft Excel and Word, and I would be happy to share this knowledge with you. Nonetheless, teaching is still my passion, and I am looking forward to helping people learn once again.

Russian

With Russian as my native language, I've been tutoring it successfully for Lincoln Public Schools' Gifted program since 1991.

I also was employed as a Russian language teacher at Northeast High school for 5 years (1995-2000).

During my graduate studies at UNL, while majoring in French, I also took a few courses on Russian literature with the head of Russian section of Modern Languages department. I put many office hours tutoring students in Russian language, and often acted as substitute instructor for Russian professors.
