About Tamara

I have a graduate degree in Linguistics from the Moscow City Pedagogical University (Russia), where I specialized in Teaching Methods and Mandarin Chinese. To perfect my skills, I spent much of my academic career in China. While immersing in their culture and expanding my technical knowledge, I also had the opportunity to begin teaching or tutoring both children and adults. My experiences as an educator range from private individual lessons to full language courses at public schools. Similarly, I have also taught and helped with the implementation of a variety of language programs in the United States and in Russia.

To me, perhaps the most rewarding aspect of teaching, is witnessing the moment in which my students truly acquire a passion for learning. Knowing a second language becomes much more than a means to an end or a tool to find a dream job or to be accepted into an ideal university, it becomes the end itself. When I teach, my focus is not only on helping my students achieve technical mastery of a new language, but also to understand the culture, the history, and the people that speak it as well. I am sincerely inspired every time my students develop linguistic identities as they learn new languages and use these to better understand their own place in the world.

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.

Chinese

In Russia I was a Chinese teacher for a local middle school. I also tutored elementary to high school students in both Chinese and English. In the United States I helped implement a Chinese Immersion Program through the Confucius Institute, University of Utah.

Russian

I graduated from the Moscow City Pedagogical University with an Advanced Linguistics degree (equivalent to Master's in the U.S.). In China I taught English and Russian in Demei Kindergarten in Nanjing.
