I am a Russian language and an ESOL instructor with Russian language native speaking proficiency and language teaching as my core competences. I have a vast experience in teaching students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. I received my Bachelor's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the A.I. Hertzen Russian State Pedagogic University in St. Petersburg, Russia, where I also got qualifications and experience in teaching Russian as a foreign language. I received a Ph.D. degree in Foreign Languages (English and French) from the same school. I also received an Oxford Seminars certificate in TESOL/TESL/TEFL with specialization in teaching Business English. I have been actively teaching Russian and ESOL to adults and children of various skills, levels, and abilities. My main mission while teaching the language is to make sure that there is progress every time I meet with my student, for the ultimate goal of exceeding the students' expectations on what they do accomplish while mastering the language I teach.

A terrific teacher!

I have been very happy with Tatyana's instruction. She is helping me with advanced Russian conversation and grammar. No one could have better experience, knowledge and pedigree for this task. Being something of a grammar nut myself I can appreciate her thorough mastery of the Intricacies of both Russian and English. I recommend her very highly for instruction at any level.

Amazing teacher

I was looking for a tutor for my small kids age 6 and 8 and was quite nervous to meet Tatyana. It was my first time using Wyzant or hiring tutor via the website. Let me tell you - she exceeded all my expectations . Tatyana was very punctual, professional and great with small kids who grew up in the bilingual family. She makes learning fun and plays with kids while they are learning . She has very impressive educational background and I feel so lucky that we found her. I highly recommend her to anybody and looking forward to work with her in the future

Tatyana is excellent!

I've had a handful of lessons with Tatyana, and I can honestly say that I walk away from each of them feeling more and more confident in my Russian abilities. She is very good at explaining difficult grammar concepts clearly and patiently. I do not feel intimidated to speak with her in Russian, and I always get supportive feedback from her on my oral and written skills. I'm comfortable during our lessons but I feel challenged, and the hour always flies by! You'd be remiss not to hire Tatyana as your Russian tutor.

Monira, 11 lessons with Tatyana

Outstanding Tutor

Tatyana is an outstanding tutor. Patient, knowledgeable and very pleasant to be around. We made more progress with her in a few weeks then we made in months of computer based training. I cannot recommend her more highly.

Kristofer, 6 lessons with Tatyana

Great tutor

Personable and patient tutor. Fantastic, structured lessons but flexible enough to adapt to my strengths and weaknesses. Very professional grasp of teaching methods. A real pleasure to learn with!

Tatyana A. as Best Tutor for Russian Langauge

I have been attending tutoring sessions with Tatyana A. for over a year and have been extremely pleased with the lesson structure and schedule flexibility. I signed up for tutoring lessons to refresh on my Russian knowledge after studying the language for two semesters in college. Tatyana was very good at diagnosing my knowledge to accelerate the progress of my lesson plans so that I could, essentially, pick up where I left off from college. When topics are more challenging than others, Tatyana spends proper amounts of time to ensure comprehension before moving on. She is dedicated to her students being well-rounded speakers of Russian, balancing grammatical understanding and colloquial tongue. As a full-time professional, she is very flexible with my schedule and provides avenues to arrange lessons that are virtual. During periods of absence, she will send homework to help my continual learning of Russian. Her dedication to her students is unprecedented, and I am grateful to be under her instruction for the Russian language.

Alena, 59 lessons with Tatyana
