About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

Anna is an enthusiastic, encouraging, and an inspiring teacher! Her lessons are engaging and delivered with respect. Her students would add that Anna is ready with a smile, a kind word or two, and adds a splash of humor to their time together.

A great instructor. Trained in linguistics in Russia and very personable. What's most important is that she has multiple teaching methodologies and adapted to how I learned best.

Anna is one of the few Russian teachers that I have been happy with. She is very willing to help others learn her native language and always has a great enthusiasm. She has been my conversation tutor now for three months and I always leave confident in my Russian skills and definitely learn new colloquial and every day phrases/expressions.
