Nina taught my son Russian last year and was fantastic. He found the lessons to be interesting and was very excited to have Nina tell him much about Russian culture and history also.
We look forward to working with her again very soon and would recommend her in an instant.
Nina S has been a very patient, very focused tutor who has been able to make a strong impact on her student's ability to learn English. The changes in her student's speaking in only a month have been noticeable, but moreover, her student's desire and interest to learn English have been transformed. I would strongly recommend Nina without hesitation!!
My 11 year old daughter and I just had our first lesson with Nina. She arrived on time and could not have been more pleasant. She was very thorough and patient in explaining the pronunciation of the letters and words and their meanings. We look forward to our next lesson!
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 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.
