About Tatiana Z.

In Moscow I was a professor for 20 years, and I am currently a full-time tutor of ESL, German, Russian, and Italian. 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 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. I have been travelling to Germany, Austria, Switzerland for fun and as an interpreter. I have Goethe-Institute certificate which proves my qualifications. Cancellation policy: 24 cancellation notice is required. Ask about special group pricing.

Tatiana is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and very friendly while also being able to strictly adhere to the structure that is needed in order to learn a new language. She pushes the student beyond their comfort zone to increase learning but does it with a smile ... and that's no easy task! She clearly has a lot of experience and it shows.
