About Maria

I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University and from Harvard University Extension School (Linguistics). For many years, I combined my linguistic research work with teaching Russian at all levels: from 5-year old kids (including my own daughters) to graduate university students, government employees and other busy professionals at Berlitz Language School.
My method of teaching is great for beginners, as well as for those who would like to brush up or polish their knowledge of Russian. I can adapt to your needs: besides conversation skills, I teach reading and writing, as well as grammar and literature (for those who are interested). I prefer to use different books at the same time because there is no perfect book for studying a language. You can expect quizzes, tests, and other classical approaches in learning, as well as watching Russian cartoons and playing games.

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 graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University (M.A. in Structural and Applied Linguistics) and from Harvard University Extension School (Master of Liberal Arts with concentration in Linguistics). For many years I combined my linguistic research work with tutoring Russian at all levels: from 5-year old kids to graduate students and the always busy students of Berlitz Language School. My theoretical background in linguistics is complemented by the Berlitz-style student-centered communicative approach.

Came prepared

I was very pleased that Maria came to the lesson prepared with material. I've worked with tutors before who seemed to expect me to drive the lesson, which is always a source of anxiety for me. She gave me clear direction for what to work on during the week and what we'll talk about next week. Look forward to continuing to work with her.
