Marina and I have met for three sessions so far, and it has been a good experience. I felt comfortable with Marina from the get-go. She is quite patient with me and my mistakes, but she is also good at making sure I say and write things correctly. She creates a laid-back atmosphere that makes me feel free to talk, make mistakes, learn from my mistakes and improve. Also, at the first session, she asked me what I was hoping to get out of tutoring, which I thought was a great question. Since I'm at an intermediate level, she has tailored the sessions to help me develop more useful Russian skills that relate to my life and goals, rather than simply have me repeat random phrases and memorize unrelated vocab from a book. At each session, she has a lesson idea, and we work together on homework from the previous week. I feel like I've improved already. I'm looking forward to working with her more.
I really like this tutor. I was very anxious about learning Russian again and it has kept me from continuing my conversational Russian with other Russian speakers. Marina helped me feel more confident and helped me to relax. Within 10-15 minutes I was able to feel more at ease and enjoy myself. She was very patient with me as well. Thank you so much for your time and I hope to continue our lessons together.
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'm a native Russian speaker and have 2 years of experience tutoring Russian at Portland Community College.
