About Olga

I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, where I completed my Master's in Philology (Literature and Linguistics) with an additional degree in Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language in 1994. I have been teaching Russian to business people, lawyers, economists and different professionals, as well as to college students both in Russia and in the U.S.

For many years (16 years and counting), I have been working as a course developer and an instructor of Russian in The World Bank Group where I design and provide training on language and culture for the World Bank operational staff. My students range from program assistants to regional VPs, and from complete beginners to rather sophisticated speakers. I have been an assistant professor of Russian Language in the George Washington University (Washington, DC) for many years. I have also been a cross-cultural consultant, business consultant and communication consultant to various U.S. companies in the last 22 years. I also work with kids (raised a few tri-lingual kids) and I am very active in the local Russian community.

I will be happy to answer your questions and tell you more about my experience and my approach, as well as results and more or less real expectations--what you should and should not expect. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions. Thank you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

European History

I am especially interested and focused on Russian History as part of the European History at large.
