About Eva

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Linguistics and Russian Language and Culture from Emory University in 2012.

My Master's degree in Russian Language and Literature is from UT Austin.

I studied abroad in Russia twice: St. Petersburg in the summer of 2010, and Moscow in the summer of 2013. I also studied in Amsterdam during the fall of 2011.

I enjoy working one-on-one because I like helping students improve their work and understand new things. I worked as a Teaching Assistant for three years and taught writing and researching skills. As a TA, I led class discussions on literature and its cultural context.
Additionally, I have experience tutoring Russian and ESL students.

As a Teaching Assistant for literature courses, I have experience guiding students towards a greater understanding of the course texts. I led discussions and developed in-class activities and I have particular experience with first-year students and helping them transition to college level academic writing. I also taught researching and time management skills.

I obtained two degrees in Russian language and literature and studied abroad in Russia twice. I have experience tutoring students who are taking Russian language courses and tailoring my explanations of grammatical points to each student. My studies in linguistics helps me to accurately describe aspects of the language and explain Russian in a broader context.

I look forward to working together!
