Mesrop Mashtots (Psychology)
I grew up in Armenia, where a knowledge of Russian is essential, and I've been exposed to Russian my whole life. I've studied it formally for a total of 12 years, during school and at the university I attended, where I majored in pedagogical psychology. I have experience in teaching different subjects in Russian both to groups and to individuals from the time I spent 18 months living in Crimea. For example, I taught weekly English classes there for a period of six months. For the past year I have worked as a Russian translator. I am fluent in three languages and I am familiar with the difficulties of learning a language.
I am willing to help students of Russian to develop their basic speaking, reading, and writing skills. I believe that learning a language is a highly individual process for each student. Some students learn best by hearing; others learn best through speaking. I will do my best to discover the best way to help my students learn Russian, and tailor our lessons to that end. I believe that anyone can learn Russian if they have the desire and are willing to put in the time and effort.

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.
