About Alisa

Hi I am a 33-year-old woman who emigrated from Russia at the age of 19. I have been a straight A student and love learning and teaching. For over 10 years I have traveled all over the United States and worked many jobs in the food industry. Right now I spend my days teaching my 2-year-old son Russian and well, everything, while also going to school. My dream since I was little was to become an architect, but I enjoy being a part of academia as well. I studied pedagogy after graduating high school, and tutored my Russian students in English before. Among them were school children, as well as young working professionals looking for better job opportunities and senior adults who were enjoying their retirement. I have tutored my American-born friends in Russian before, but never professionally. However, I was always successful reaching the level my students were aiming at.

I am looking forward to meeting people on WyzAnt and helping them understand Russian grammar rules, bulk up vocabulary, and, for those who are interested, the etymology of words and some history, too!

I am an avid reader and have a knack for languages and teaching. I spent all of my formative years in one of Russia's biggest cities attending one of the best schools, and was a straight A student pre-k through high school. I am also very creative and efficient at teaching. I think you will find my lessons very well worth your money!

If you would like to learn more, please ask away!

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.

Russian

I am a Russian-born fluent speaker of Russian and English, and I have prior teaching and tutoring experience. I studied pedagogy after graduating high school, as well.
I am keen on educating people about Russian culture and language, so if someone is looking to learn Russian in the historical, or socio-political context, I am the right person to turn to! Also, linguistics is my hobby so I will make sure my students are soon able to construct sentences and words using the knowledge of grammatical patterns and etymology.
