About Alisa

I am passionate about all things language, culture, and travel! A native Russian and English speaker, I also have native-level fluency in Spanish. I have over five years of experience teaching individuals and groups and personally developing curricula for my students based on their professional fields or personal interests. My educational background is in International Relations and language/cultural studies, including a sociolinguistics project I conducted in Spain and South Africa. My own studies of languages, with tutors and classes, books and travels, as well as my experience tutoring students of many different backgrounds have given me an extensive perspective on language-learning and teaching approaches. All ages welcome! - I have significant experience with children, as well as teenagers and adults. I also regularly conduct lessons through Skype.

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.


I am a native Russian speaker from Moscow, Russia, and I have experience tutoring both English and Spanish speakers in the language. I focus on building solid conversation and comprehension skill using exciting, culturally relevant material.
