Hi Everybody! If you long to learn American English choose me to help and guide you! I am a professional writer and after writing 24 books I managed to have my own television series on TV as well. I told funny stories about my silly life and recited my own written poetry too!
If you only speak your language from your own country and are afraid to take that 1st step..don't worry, I'm right here! One foot in front of the other is all it takes for success in anything you do! Why not start with English! Thank you

About Donna Dorothy B.

Ever since I can remember I enjoyed dancing and gymnastics. I competed on a undefeated gymnastics team in the 9th grade. While in college I was a cheerleader for Chaminade University in Honolulu Mens Basketball team.
On returning home I was a professional dancer in New York City for the "New York Broadway Dancing Cheerleaders ". I made appearances on national TV etc..
Also took intensive dance classes at Suny Stonybrook in New York while majoring in Russian Studies..It was in that dance class where I studied Jazz, Ballet and Modern Dance techniques....along with Russian Language, culture, literature classics in translation and Russian history.
I worked my way through school by teaching gymnastics and Aerobics.
Now I am a writer. I just finished a full year with my television series on local cable. It was a comedy show written, directed, produced and narrated by me!
I am here for you now to introduce the English language to you. After writing 24 books I figure I'm in for a change of itinerary! I love the spoken and written word and can teach you to love it too whatever language you speak. I attended college in New York, Hawaii and Vermont. Also took private Russian classes to enhance my memory at Berlitz Language Learning Center here in New York.
If your native tongue is Russian, I can most definitely be of service for you to learn English.
