About Andrew

Hello! My name is Andy and I want to help you if you are learning English as a second language, or if you are a native English speaker looking for some help with grammar, vocabulary, writing style, or proofreading. I can also help you learn to speak, read, and write Russian. I have a Ph.D. in Slavic Languages from OSU, and am fluent in Russian, having lived and worked in Moscow. Whether you are a beginner or are at a more advanced level, I can teach you this important world language. I understand exactly the unique challenges facing English speakers learning Russian -- since as a native English speaker, I faced these same challenges when I began learning Russian.

My lesson plans are suited to your individual needs, and involve a variety of interesting and relevant materials.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Grammar

I am a native English speakers who holds a Ph.D. and two Master's degrees. I have published several papers in peer-reviewed academic journals. My wife is Russian. I have tutored her as well as other immigrants learning English as a second language, helping them learn the grammar they need in order to write resumes and cover letters, take exams, and engage in everyday conversation.

Proofreading

I have published several scholarly papers, and have completed a Master's thesis and a doctoral dissertation. I have proofread scholarly papers for several OSU students through Wyzant. I am familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago formats for citations.

Russian

I have a Ph.D in Slavic Languages from The Ohio State University. I lived and worked in Moscow for a year and am fluent in Russian. I have experience tutoring individual students in written and spoken Russian.

Helpul and Patient!

I am having issues with pronunciations, rolling and understanding unique Russian letters. Andrew was very patient, and caught on very quickly in how to help me. I look forward to meeting with him more!
