A native of Saint Petersburg, Russia, I have had a great love for the wonders of languages from such an early age. For years, I have been on the beautiful, exciting and unique journey of teaching languages to students from all walks of life. Each experience has been one of a kind, from private and semi-private lessons, to small and large classes.
Some of my unforgettable experiences as a teacher include creating and teaching the first Russian, French and Italian classes in an enrichment program in Oxnard elementary schools, teaching French and Italian in the Ventura College Community Education, Russian in a government Language Immersion Program and ESL. I create each class especially for the dreams and aspirations unique to each of my students. And I always let our journey take its natural, spontaneous course and surprise us.
Next to languages, my greatest passions are flamenco dance, world music and writing.
It’s my joy and honor to guide my students to rediscover their gifts through the incredible world of language.
