About Me

I teach Russian and Ukrainian Languages since 2005 - in private or via Skype. I teach ESL (English as a second language) for Russian and Ukrainian speaking students.
Children are welcome.
In additional to private teaching, I worked at Inlingua Language Center (Ridgewood NJ) as a Russian Instructor. I take individual approach to every student. In additional to my instructions I provide my students with printed, audio and video materials free of charge. I often offer field trips (were available) to local Russian stores or markets to experience true Russian speaking atmosphere. If students have a special point of interest such as family, travel. business - I implement that specific chapter into a curriculum. I welcome students of any age and any level - Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. For beginners I recommend to start with Skype Lessons. PayPal is preferable method of payments.

About Me

Hello! I am a graduate of Haverford College with degrees in Political Science and Russian, and I have just returned from studying abroad for a year at St. Petersburg State University in Russia as part of the Russian Language Flagship Program. My Russian studies began when I was a student at Friends School of Baltimore, so I am very familiar with the Baltimore private school community. I also have received certification as a Superior/Level 3 speaker of Russian on the ACTFL/ILR scales.

As someone who can empathize with the struggles of learning unfamiliar aspects of the Russian language such as the case system as a non-native speaker, I focus on keeping lessons engaging and tailored to the student's individual needs. My experience includes working as a peer tutor while in high school and at an ESL conversation class in St. Petersburg for Russian young adults.

For students in school Russian programs who are interested in keeping their skills sharp over summer vacation, I am happy to coordinate with their teachers to ensure continuity in their study programs.
