Hello. I have a master's degree in Linguistics and I have taught Russian at the high school level and college. I enjoy working with students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and understand the challenges that come with learning a second language while adapting to a new culture. I lived in Russia, China and US for most of my life and had to learn several languages in order to get by. As a tutor I am very patient and enjoy adapting lessons to suit your unique learning style. I like to make learning interesting with lots of useful connections to real life. I am a very dedicated and patient tutor who has worked with adults and high school students from all over the world.
I have experience working with Russian and English language learners at all levels, from beginners to business professionals. I also have considerable experience as an academic writing tutor with both native and non-native Russian speakers.
My approach is very customized, and I will take care to design tutoring sessions that focus on your specific needs and interests. I have many student texts and workbooks that we can use, but I also like to incorporate a lot of "real world" materials such as newspapers, magazines, websites, newsletters, maps, menus, etc. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

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.
