About Elena

I am a Russian native and a total professional. I am articulate whether in my native language or in English, one-on-one with a student or in class. I taught Russian and English languages to high school students for over ten years. I developed and taught a course in Russian Language and Culture at a technical college for four years. I have been commended for my organizational skills, content, and pedagogical knowledge, and interpersonal rapport.

My teaching philosophy is holistic: I teach not only academic content, but also encourage the intellectual, emotional, and moral growth of my students. I select teaching techniques and methods appropriate for the nature of the content and the developmental stages of my students. I am creative, enthusiastic, and respectful of my students and their individual backgrounds and talents. I am well organized and capable of setting and accomplishing goals.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Thoughtful and skilled educator! — Elena is a wonderful tutor! She clearly dedicates a great deal of time and effort outside of the lesson to preparation, and carefully considers her students' abilities and goals. Her experience as an educator is invaluable, as I have found not all tutors have the background and training that Elena has to construct quality lessons.
