About Svetlana


Bio

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.

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.

Wonderful Teacher

Svetlana is a wonderful teacher, puts you at ease right away. We went through lots of material for the first lesson.

Yaser, 2 lessons with Svetlana

Very Perceptive and Patient Teacher

Another excellent lesson. Svetlana always finds and addresses areas that need improvement and patiently works through them with you. The lessons can be challenging but they are still fun.

Awesome Tutor!

Svetlana is a very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient tutor. She presents an excellent approach and provides useful tools for learning Russian. She focuses on learning grammar and language fundamentals, building vocabulary, and working on proper pronunciation. Practice, practice, practice! We review and test materials during the sessions, she introduces new material that builds on what I have learned, and presents a clear action plan with homework for me to work on between sessions. She is very disciplined, challenges me appropriately, and is personable and a real pleasure to work with!
