Privet (Hello)! I am an Ivy League educated (University of Pennsylvania), outgoing, enthusiastic, and conscientious Russian language instructor as well as a European history and international relations expert. I am fully bilingual and have extensive experience in teaching, translating, and interpreting.

My major strengths include being an articulate communicator in spoken as well as written English and Russian languages, deep first-hand knowledge of Russian and European culture, strong ethics, and a warm personality.

I grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia and came to the US as a teenager. I have lived in the US for over 25 years and am a proud U.S. citizen. I have taught Russian to students of all ages, backgrounds, and proficiency levels, from corporate executives to kids in an after-school care program. I often employ my training in Berlitz method of complete language immersion. I also have over 15 years experience working as a Russian translator and interpreter.

I have been interested in foreign policy and European history since I was 6 years old. That intense interest, combined with my upbringing in one of the most cultured and educated cities in Russia, have made me quite knowledgeable in these subjects before I was even accepted to the University of Pennsylvania. I have continued expanding my expertise for over 15 years after I got my degree.

Would love to meet you over online video, or in person at a Starbucks if you live in my area, and see if we can have a mutually beneficial professional relationship.

Great Tutor

Natalya makes quick but courteous corrections to grammar and word use that prevent the acquisition of bad habits. Very effective tutor.

Keefe, 4 lessons with Natalya

Fun, Energetic, and Patient Tutor!

Natalya has done a great job teaching me beginner Russian. She has a positive attitude and always makes the lessons fun and engaging. She is really patient when it takes me a while to understand a concept, and always makes sure to add a little cultural context in our lessons. I would highly recommend Natalya!!

Natalya G. --> Great Tutor!!!

Natalya G. knows Political Science very well, is patient, and explains the material in a way that makes it clear and & understandable to me. She has been helping me with my International Relations course I am taking. She researches the material to be sure that she and whoever she is tutoring is on the same page, and is honest about what she knows and can help with, and what is not in her purview. I have been her student for only a short while, and already concepts that were too difficult for me are now clear. She also tutors in the Russian language.

Claire, 4 lessons with Natalya

Patient and strong in history

After having many issues getting online thru the system, Natalya was very patient and moved our appointment so that we would still have the time needed. She knows her European History and can relate to my teenager very well.
