About Meg

I offer personalized Japanese, Russian, English and art lessons that focus on your goals and interests, with curriculum that will best match your needs.

I have years of experience teaching Japanese at BKC-International in Moscow, Russia, and Fluent City in NYC, where I also teach Russian. I hold a certificate of "Test of Russian as a Foreign Language - level 2".

In addition, I teach Japanese elective classes at Atmosphere Academy Charter Schools and International High School at Lafayette, and serve as a language couch and consultant for the TV show "Mozart in the Jungle".

I studied painting and drawing at University of Oregon and The Art Students League of New York, and creative writing at West Side YMCA. I currently teach art lessons at Steps to Success in NYC.

I teach all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced and work with different age groups: school children, university students and working professionals.

Based on your needs, I create different lesson plans to help you develop your skills.

I am available to teach on weekends, too.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Drawing

I have a BA in Art from the University of Oregon and continued my study at the New York Academy of Art and the Art Students League of New York. I focused on representational drawing and can teach how to draw figure, landscape and still life.

I taught art at Springfield Creative Community in Oregon, and continue to give art lessons at Steps to Success in NYC.

ESL/ESOL

Apart from teaching and tutoring English, I myself have learned English and Russian and can provide tips on how to approach language learning.

Japanese

I am a native Japanese speaker, with years of experience teaching Japanese at BKC-International in Moscow, Russia, Fluent City in NYC, Atmosphere Academy Charter Schools and International High School at Lafayette. In addition, I've served as a language couch and consultant for TV show "Mozart in the Jungle", and can help actors learn Japanese for acting purposes.

Painting

I have a BA in Art from the University of Oregon and continued my study at New York Academy of Art and the Art Students League of New York. I focused on representational painting and can teach how to paint figure, landscape and still life.

Russian

I hold a certificate of the Test of Russian as a Foreign Language Level - 2, supervised by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, and I teach Russian at "Fluent City" in NYC.

I studied Russian at the Moscow State University and would be happy to share my study abroad experience with those who are interested in studying in Russia in the future.

I have worked as a writer contributing articles and short stories to publications such as New York Art Beat, Sensitive Skin and The Brooklyn Rail.
