About Erin

I am a college graduate from the University of New Mexico, with a BA in Russian and a minor in History.

I have a flexible schedule, am familiar with AP tests, and work well with children. My historical areas of interest are the rise and fall of the USSR, and contemporary American history, however I am also knowledgeable on many other time periods.

I do tours with the National Atomic Testing Museum. As such I am able to take complex historical and political subjects, and distill them in a way that is easier to understand, without over simplifying the material or leaving out important information.

I have read and am familiar with many classical texts, both in prose and poetry, that are common in high school curriculum. These include many of Shakespeare's plays, the Brothers Karamazov, Catch 22, Wit, and other pieces of literature that may find their way into an AP test.

I can teach introductory Russian, and provide learning materials and textbooks as needed. As a native English speaker who learned Russian in an academic setting, I have many resources and tips on language acquisition for people who have passed the 'critical period' window. It is possible for anyone to learn a new language, no matter what age.

I am an avid life long learner, and am willing to go the extra while to ensure that I am familiar with your child's curriculum, whatever historical or literary subject it may be.
