About Svetlana

I believe in drills, time consuming homework and daily studying. That's how I was able to learn English, move on my own across the world to the US 10 years ago, acquire American education and establish my life here.
If you are ready for hard work, I welcome your determination.
Currently, I am staying home with my children and practicing my teaching skills on them. My 5 year old is fully bilingual and I am very proud of her.
I have several adult students who study the language for various reasons. It's nice to be around people who are interested in my language and culture. I have been tutoring for 5 years and still learn from every student and constantly change to accommodate each person's interests, priorities and ways of learning.

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'm a native speaker, have ESL tutoring experience both in Russia and USA and experience working with children of Russian immigrants focused on grammar and in depth vocabulary.
