About Celia

My name is Celia, and I graduated in 2014 from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Russian and a Russian and Eastern European Studies certificate. Russian is a complex and confusing language, and sometimes it can feel like nothing makes sense and you'll never get it; trust me, I understand! I can help you to better understand and to improve your reading, writing, and speaking skills. Having studied literature extensively as well as part of my degree program, I am happy to help you with themes, symbolism, and so on.

My qualifications: In addition to four years of language study, I spent 5 weeks studying in Moscow in 2012 and worked for 3 weeks in 2014 at a Russian summer camp on the Black Sea. I will be attending the University of Glasgow in Scotland beginning in September as a grad student in Translation and Professional Practice. Since 2013, I have worked as a volunteer translator for an organization called Russian in Translation, at which I am now the Deputy Director as well. I also volunteered as an ESL tutor while in college for a regional literacy organization. I am flexible on time and rates, and I'm happy to work with you to determine the best way to help you achieve your goals.
