I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish as a foreign language, Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am a native speaker. I have more than 3 years of experience teaching students language both as a tutor and a classroom teacher. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

I use techniques that are researched based as well as techniques I used to learn my languages. As a language learner myself, I understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language! Let's work hard together to improve!

Hi! I am a native Russian speaker with over 7.5 years of experience teaching in private and public schools, as well as private tutoring.

I also have a Master's degree in Education and several teaching certifications. I love creating my own fun materials and assignments to supplement textbooks and conversation.

I have taught hundreds of students within the past decade across all ages and levels. My experience includes test preparation (TORFL, DLPT), job specific preparation (military, government, defense contractors, business, IT), and general conversational Russian.

If you have any questions about my background or services please don't hesitate to message me!

Best Regards

Teacher assumed I knew something about origami but it was a beginner lesson. Video feed from teacher's end was terrible. I think that the first object was too difficult. That said, the teacher tried hard and sincerely, but we both just ended up frustrated.
