I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.
I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.
I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, social networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Tatiana is certainly one of the greatest teachers I have ever studied with. I am extremely grateful to have her as my mentor, and I my recommendations are high for anyone seeking a top-quality language-learning experience.
I've only just started, but I can see that I'm definitely going to make some great progress with Tatiana. I would recommend her for sure.
My son liked his first class, he told me that he thinks Tatiana will be able to help him reach his goal. Thanks
Tatiana is great! My son loves their interaction and her teaching style.

Tatiana did a great job! She helped me overcome some of the challenges I faced with communication. The lesson was dynamic and went quite naturally. Very highly recommend!
Great first lesson! Tatiana made me feel very comfortable and moved at my pace, which I really appreciated! Looking forward to my next one.
Taking weekly lessons at the high-intermediate level - Tatiana is a fantastic teacher - very good explanations of grammatical concepts and nuances of vocabulary/language - I've noticed great progress in my Russian since starting a few months ago.
Fantastic first class!
Tatiana is the third German teacher I've had on Take Lessons and by far the best! She uses a variety of teaching tools that are very effective and she is very personable!
It is my first class and I really loved it.
Very good very interesting exactly what I was looking for
In our first lesson we practiced the alphabet. I am a total beginner so that's where we had to start.
Lots of fun and very interesting.
Tatiana is a wonderful teacher. I look forward to our next lesson.
Very fun and makes learning easy. I would definitely recommend this instructor to anyone looking to learn German!
After just one lesson I can tell Tatiana is going to be a wonderful teacher. I can't wait until the next lesson!
Tatiana met my expectations admirably. I thoroughly recommend her for students of all competencies.
She is nice, smart and uses many different methods of teaching.
I had a good grasp of the German language. I had never taped into the language before and I had a good experience with Tatiana.
Oh, and she has the best price around as well,
Tatiana is great! I am so happy to have found Tatiana as a teacher. Within a short period of working with her, I have learned a lot! I have learned several grammar concepts as well as a chunk of vocabulary. Tatiana is very encouraging during lessons and easy to understand.
I would highly recommend her to anyone of any age level!
Tatiana was wonderful! Looking forward to her next lesson. My daughter said "she's really cool". That says a lot coming from a teenager.
Very professional and fun!
She is very patient and knowledge and I enjoyed the first German lesson with her a lot:) Highly recommended for serious German learners!
Tatiana is a great instructor. She created a plan best-suited to my ability level, and has been very patient and encouraging throughout. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn German at any level.
I enjoyed my first lesson very much! Tatiana made a big effort to figure out my German level and led the conversation in such a way that I could learn as we talked. She was very complimentary, offered to help above the call of duty, and feels like she already is a friend! It will be fun and a great help to me to continue with the lessons!Show More
