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.

I have been using Tatiana for over a year. I would recommend her as a teacher, she is patience, lots of resources and I have improved my German a lot.
Working with Tatiana has improved my German immensely! At first I was intimidated to finally be speaking German with someone one-on-one, but Tatiana is so easy to talk to. She's patient, funny, and a great teacher! Having someone to talk to every week has helped me build my vocabulary and grammar immensely. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Very patient, and easy to work with!
