Looking to improving your Russian skills and reaching to a higher proficiency level?

You are in a right place!

I am a native Russian speaker born and raised in Moscow. I graduated from Moscow Pedagogical University and received my Master's degree in Russian and French Languages and Literature from Portland State University. I have an Oregon teaching license and am certified to teach both French and Russian. For the past 25 years I have been traveling the world and working as a French and Russian teacher in international schools in Germany, Pakistan, Belgium, Egypt and Kuwait. I taught all levels of French (including AP and IB French) as well as tutoring IB Russian. In my 8+ years of teaching IB French and Russian, I have never had a student score below a five, with the vast majority earning an exam grade of six or seven.

I am passionate about teaching and this passion comes out in each of my lessons. I work hard to create lessons that are challenging, yet meaningful and fun-filled. Whatever your goals are, I will help you reach them by providing you with a personalized learning plan and interactive, engaging and effective lessons. In each lesson, I will help you learn and master your language skills using different teaching methods, incorporating technologies and media sources, in an environment that is relaxed yet challenging. Learning can be fun!
