About Ross

I have lived and studied in Russia and was determined to speak Russian at the level of an educated native speaker. I have experience teaching Russian to gifted high school students at a state academy. I also have experience tutoring Russian at the university level. In addition to knowing the language and having experience tutoring, I am also fully up to date on the current political, geographical and economic situation in Russia and her sphere of influence. As an actual American of non-Russia decent, I have been told that I am a prodigy for knowing Russian so well, while also being a native speaker of English, which is rare. Most Russian tutors available have a thick accent or are Americans who don't truly speak the language. I feel I would be your best option.

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.

Russian

I speak fluent, unaccented Russian at the 4/4/4 level (fluency is achieved at level 3) as evaluated by a representative of the State Department of the Untied States while participating in a State Department sponsored multi-year on-sight Russian university program in Russia.

I have taught Russian to Americans and English to Russians formally at Wittenberg University, Virginia Commonwealth University and Moscow International University for 7 years. I have a degree in Russian from Wittenberg University and Moscow International University. I have given speeches in Russian while in Russia, written a thesis in Russian, conduct business in Russian on a daily basis and socialize with dozens of Russians weekly. I was interviewed by Russian journalists and an article was recently published about my Russian speaking ability in Elabuga, Tatarstan Republic, Russia (March 2011). I have worked as a Russian-English translator for Alinga Consulting Group. I speak Russian and have experience teaching it as per this information.

Even Better Than Expected — Ross K is an excellent instructor of the Russian language. He patiently worked through the more difficult nuances of pronunciation important for conversing with native speakers. We also started to discuss the syntax of verbs and the use of personal pronouns. It is very good having a native English-speaking tutor who can answer my questions so that I don't have to work through a heavy Russian acc ...
