About Yana

I am originally from Russia, but I've only lived there for the first twenty years of my life. I've also lived in Salzburg, Austria for a couple of years, and I am very fond of that city.

I've studied and taught foreign languages in the past 15 years of my life. I like teaching online, as well as face-to-face. My favorite thing about tutoring is watching my students gain confidence in their abilities and skills. I push you to work hard, because I want you to be proud of your results.

I am a Certified TEFL Instructor. I have three years' experience teaching ESL online and in person. I am skilled at teaching American pronunciation.

I am a native Russian speaker. I have a Master's degree in German. I've been teaching Russian and German to English speakers for the past ten years.

I work with students who are motivated by specific goals and results. Contact me to discuss your goals, and together we can find the best approach to achieve results.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a 40-hour TEFL certification from Bridge TEFL. I've worked as a conversation instructor for English First for the past three years. Having learned English as a second language myself, I can provide you with an abundance of ESL resources and learning strategies that I used myself.

German

I have a Master's Degree in German from Bowling Green State University. During the Master's program, I lived in Austria for a year. I've taught German as a teaching assistant at BGSU. I've worked as an adjunct instructor of German at Columbus State Community College for a year, and at American Public University for three years.

Russian

I am a native Russian speaker. I taught Russian as a teaching assistant at Lawrence University for two years. I lead conversation sessions for students of Russian at University of Salzburg in Austria. I've been teaching Russian as an adjunct instructor at American Public University for close to three years now.

Wonderful With Our Bilingual Son!

She did a great job with a teenage boy that didn't want to participate. I felt like she was knowledgeable and helpful. We are looking forward to working with her again
