About Brooke

I am passionate about teaching Russian to my students, and I do it in a fun, interactive format. I teach high school Russian and love every minute of it. I lived in St. Petersburg, Russia, for 17 years, and I know from my experience that learning Russian in a fun, real-world context is the best way to store it in our long-term memory!
I use a combination of Russian movies and animated films, folk tales, interactive activities, and recorded dialogues to teach Russian to my students. I also teach the roots of words so that by recognizing them, students can learn many words at one time. I have a 'Superior' rating in Russian from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
I am located in Memphis, Tennessee, but I also am happy to tutor long distance via Skype, telephone, and email!
I have a B.S. in Agricultural Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, so I also am qualified to tutor in writing and proofreading. I worked as an editor at the University of Missouri for two years, and I also worked as an editor for an agricultural magazine in Memphis.

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 teach high school Russian and have a 'Superior' rating from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I lived in St. Petersburg, Russia, for 17 years and have spoken fluent Russian since 1996. I began learning Russian in 1992 in St. Petersburg. I also have spent extensive time in Estonia.

While living in Russia, I regularly gave presentations in Russian, and I organized conferences for adults and summer camps for disabled children. I continue my involvement in Russia through this camp for disabled children. I am passionate about teaching my high school students and love every minute of it!
