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.

Handwriting

I have graduated from high school in Kiev (Ukraine) where we learned cursive writing for three years. We have used special copybooks and special drills for that. After high school I have graduated with masters degree form Kiev State University. My degree is in Germanic philology and applied linguistics. I have taught Russian and English for 20+ years and when we taught elementary Russian or English writing in Ukraine we had to teach cursive writing as it is still widely used there. That is why I have a lot of relevant experience.
