I speak Russian fluently, however I can troubleshoot problems in English language acquisition for students from varied backgrounds. I have 18.5 years experience teaching ESL to adults.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for 18.5 years in a local School District's Adult Education program. I have been trained in using various Adult ESL materials and curricula, including: Side by Side; Center Stage, and Learners' Lives as Curriculum. In addition, I have developed tailor-made curricula as needed for various and specific needs of students. I have also taught classes for exclusively Russian speaking students, as I am fluent in Russian.

Religion

I attended an Orthodox Christian Seminary and hold a Bachelor's degree in Theology. I have taught the Orthodox faith to both school-aged children and adults.

Russian

In the past I have taught beginning/basic Russian language to young adults and adults. This includes the Cyrillic alphabet, pronunciation, reading, and grammar
