Not only I have appropriate education (two Masters Degrees in Second Language Acquisition) but I also have over 10 year experience teaching in different countries with all age groups and levels. I tailor my lessons for my students' individual needs and interests . I work with non native as well as heritage students who need to improve reading , writing and comprehension skills.

About Victoria M.

I am very dedicated to what I do, whether it is lesson preparation or teaching itself. I hold two degrees, MA in Second Language Acquisition (ESL) and MA in Russian and Slavic Studies from the University of Missouri. Being a native Russian speaker allows me to make my lessons fun and interactive, I love seeing results and progress in my students. I work hard to help my students achieve results. This job brings me a great deal of reward and satisfaction. Besides teaching I enjoy photography, cooking, traveling, and of course spending the time with my family.

The best instructor I ever had. She helped me get to the language level I wanted to be. Provided detailed and informative instructions on everything. She is easy to understand and to communicate. I suggest her to everyone who needs to significantly improve their language skills or even to start from scratch!

Victoria is the best Russian teacher I've ever had. She's very experienced, knowledgeable and patient. As a teacher myself, I'm quite critical of other teachers, but Victoria far exceeds my expectations. She takes time tailor each class materials and well prepared for each lesson.
