About Mitchell

I have been studying the Russian language for over seven years at this point, including at Franklin High School, Portland State University, the University of Kentucky, Indiana University - Bloomington, Middlebury College, the KORA Center (in Vladimir, Russia), and Kuban State University (in Krasnodar, Russia). I have a true passion for the language and am looking to help tutor students that have a strong desire to improve their skills. Last year, I worked as a tutor for a student at the University of Kentucky in Russian 101, covering topics such as basic grammar skills, case declension, verb conjugation, and vocabulary acquisition. In the past, I worked as an informal translator and interpreter involving projects such as personal correspondence and public interactions between American and Russian students. I have recently been hired as an interpreter and hope to spend some of my nights and weekends spending time spreading knowledge of Russian.

Advanced mid grade in speaking, reading, writing, and listening (ILR scale) as of August, 2015)
Graduate of the University of Kentucky (May 2016) with degrees in Russian Studies and History - 4.0 GPA
2016 American Council of Teachers of Russian National Post-Secondary Russian Essay Contest - Honorable Mention (Class A, Level 4)

If you have any interest in furthering your study of the Russian language, please get in touch with me! I would be very happy to assist in whatever way I might be able to.

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 have studied Russian at five universities in the United States and Russia, and received my bachelor's degree in Russian Studies in May of 2016 from the University of Kentucky. I tutored a Russian 101 student during the past academic year, focusing on tasks such as case declension, verb conjugation, and vocabulary acquisition. I own multiple textbooks (Russian in Use - Rosengrant; Troika - Numikoski) that are useful as reference materials.
