Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

Tatiana has been giving me French lessons in the last few months. She is a very experienced and a passionate at that teacher who went out of her way to prepare customized materials and find great many useful online resources. We had many interesting conversations, and I enjoyed my lessons quite a bit. I frankly feel a little sad with the fact that my studies are coming to an end. I reached my desired goals of speaking and understanding this beautiful language and I am very thankful to Tatiana for all her effort and heart. Au revoir!

"Was very tolerant of the fact that I had zero knowledge of the language upon entry. He also doesn't waste time and is good about explaining words and their meanings. His snippets of knowledge about Japanese traditions and their relationship with certain words he drops added bonus insight to them that I really enjoyed! He is also very clear about what should be done to improve for the next lessons!"

Not only is she a native speaker (which is great), she also understands the grammatical structure of the language very well and knows how to present new material in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. She followed up every lesson with an email which made it easier for me to memorize new vocabulary. Overall, it's been a great experience and I highly recommend her."
