"I am Jose, a recent graduate from the University of Vermont in 2019, and have a passion for teaching Russian. My last semester at UVM, I tutored a French Professor the basics of the Russian language ranging from; the alphabet, cases and basic conversational words and phrases. We also listened to music and watched videos. Entering UVM as a freshman, my goal was to become fluent in Russian. Now, a graduate from UVM, I can say with certainty that I am fluent in Russian.

I am a very patient person, and take my time in explaining things to the fullest. With me, there is never any sense of misunderstanding - the idea will always be understood whether it deals with grammar, listening, conversation, reading, or writing.
