About Kathleen

I have a PhD in Slavic Languages and Literatures from University of Virginia. I have six years, and two summers' worth, of experience teaching Russian language, literature, and culture to college students, and one year of experience teaching college-level academic English writing. I also taught rising high-schoolers in a two-week summer program for gifted & talented students. I have tutored adults in beginning Russian language for three years.

I love teaching and tutoring because it allows me to share something I'm passionate about. Helping students succeed is by far the most rewarding aspect of the work -- and I definitely think of it as fun, not work!

I have studied Russian for the better part of 16 years; I lived in St. Petersburg for a year after finishing my undergraduate degree. I struggled mightily with beginning and intermediate Russian myself, so I understand how frustrating it is to feel like you're never going to "get it"! I am patient, persistent, have a good sense of humor, and know how to structure lessons to minimize burnout and maximize results.

I am a native English speaker with an unparalleled grasp for clear, concise, expressive writing -- so if you need help with college admissions essays, I'm your ideal choice! I am also a stickler for grammar, and have recently completed three editing projects for academic volumes.

Don't hesitate to contact me! I love helping students improve, and I'd be happy to talk with you more about your needs.
