Khabarovsk State Humanities University, Multnomah Unversity (teaching of English)
I have been born and educated in Russia. Inspired by my Aunt's example, an English teacher, when I enrolled in college it was to study languages. While in college in Russia, I learned English, German, English Literature, Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages, Psychology of Education, Linguistics, Phonetics and Russian. While in US, I graduated from Multnomah University where I studied Speech Preparation and Journalism among other things. I have tutored students in both English and Russian and I love to see the progress of someone grasping and mastering basics of communication in another language.
Currently, I work as a certified Russian interpreter. I also write in and translate in both English and Russian. I enjoy collaborating with interpreters and translators of other languages and learn about language acquisition and challenges they encounter.
I have a friendly demeanor, minimal accent and fluency in both Russian and English, as well as patience with language efforts in another person, wide range of literacy, and overall general knowledge. I also participated in Toastmasters and have been told I have good storytelling skills.
Learning Russian may seem a bit difficult, but it opens wide opportunities to communication with a wide segment of US immigrant population and people around the globe. Russian is a key to immense treasures of classical and contemporary literature and filmography. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced speaker of Russian, we can work together to advance your skills. I can tailor some drill and unique to your level and interest.
