About Michael

A native speaker of Russian with over 15 years experience teaching Russian language at the university level, I am passionate about the language learning experience and will work closely with you to tailor a program of study suited to your individual goals and needs. While my method of instruction typically focuses on achieving ACTFL recognized benchmarks for oral proficiency in Russian from Novice to Advanced, I realize that students come to language learning with dramatically different learner styles and language goals. Thus, I will assess your language goals and learner experience to design a program of study that works best for you.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve success in Russian!

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 have 15 years of experience teaching all levels of Russian language at colleges and universities across the US and hold a Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures from Yale University. In my current academic position, I also serve as the language coordinator for Russian. I am fully certified as an ACTFL Russian Language Oral Proficiency Examiner. I have also tutored a number of students individually. I believe in a proficiency based model of language learning, focusing on achieving ACTFL benchmarks for speaking, listening, reading and writing competency. I am willing to work closely with the individual student to tailor a program of study specifically to their individual needs.
