Western Washington University (French)
Throughout my academic experiences I have had numerous opportunities to share my knowledge with each one helping me develop a tool set of an efficient educator. One of my first teaching experiences was in my home country, Belarus, when I taught and tutored English at the Minsk State linguistic University for 4 years. During that time I practiced my organizational and educational skills working at a children`s activities center as a counselor. Also, I have gone through continuous pedagogical practice, which included giving individual English lessons as well as teaching English in class. I learned how to organize a safe leaning environment, welcome a student`s individuality, and how to encourage and interest students to participate in the process of learning using different teaching techniques.
While I was working on my Associate's Degree at Bellevue College, I worked as a tutor of French for the college, assisting my students in all levels of French. I planned carefully each individual tutorial, emphasizing phonetic, grammar and lexical skills. I analyzed and assessed students' levels, individual talents, abilities, and individual learning styles in order to better suit students' learning needs.
While attaining my Bachelor's in French and Linguistics at Western Washington University I continued tutoring French and began tutoring Russian for a total of three years. This time I taught French to elementary school kids, thus, I faced shorter attention spans and since I could not change the material, all I could do was change kids' involvement with it. Therefore, I planned their sessions in meaningful blocks, followed by singing French songs, playing active games, playing memory games, and exploring aspects of French culture by simply exploring the world.
Additionally, I tutored Russian at Western Washington University to students introducing and explaining diverse cultures of Russian speaking countries, as well as focusing on student`s pronunciation, grammar and lexical skills.

I can honestly say Hanna is a well-versed instructor. I love her practical approach to language teaching that you don't experience in large group classes. Hanna has helped me immensely with my pronunciation, and with my confidence in speaking French. She does a great job individualizing her instruction and lessons to meet your needs, and push your abilities to the next level. She also has a way of making complicated subjects seem simple. Anyone would be lucky to study from her. I can't recommend her enough.
We have had four tutoring sessions with Hanna so far and we couldn't be happier! Hanna is easy to communicate with. She always responds promptly to my emails and she makes it easy to schedule our sessions with her. My daughter already feels more confident with her French. She has a long way to go, so we will be tutoring with Hanna for a long time to come, including over the summer. Hanna is encouraging and already has a good understanding of my daughter's strengths and how she can help
her where she is struggling. It says a lot when a 13 year old looks forward to her time with her tutor!
I highly recommend Hanna!
I have not experienced private tutoring before so I was unsure what to expect. I selected Russian language tutoring.
Hanna was has been very easy to reach and communicate with to set up the tutoring. She has always been prompt, prepared and found a good location to tutor in. She was very accommodating one day when I was running late.
The lessons are easy to understand, plenty of visual aids, handouts, follows a clear path to learning and growth of skill. She is easy to work with, patient and quickly corrects errors as building a good foundation is so important.
I highly recommend this tutor.
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 received my bachelor's in French from Western Washington University were I graduated Magna Cum Laude. During my studies there I received key experience as a French tutor.

I grew up In Belarus where I learned Russian as my native language. Throughout college at the Mink State linguistic University, I both taught and tutored English and Russian for four years.
While in Minsk, I also gained vital experience as a Russian English Interpreter for BelExpo international. While attending Western Washington University, I tutored Russian for two years.
