"I was raised speaking Russian and English, and immersed in the Slavic culture. I studied abroad, and graduated top of my class in the Germanic-Slavic Dept. of my university when I received my BA in Russian Language & Literature. I traveled the world extensively taking professionals for educational credit, and specialized in the former USSR. I have been to Moscow alone approximately seventy-four times.

I love teaching, especially Russian language, culture, and cooking and feel that by understanding language and culture we can better understand our worldwide neighbors. When we do this the world becomes a smaller place, and we can look at one another with more understanding. I have taught Russian privately and publicly for over thirty years. I currently teach adjunct and lifelong learning at a local university and have taught at two local community colleges, and in other venues. I have taught in NY, MD, and WV.

I specialize in helping to develop pronunciation, as communication and comprehension are essential to language learning. I feel that the student should not compete with other students, but only with themselves. When learning a new language, we learn through our mistakes, and I find it essential that my students take comfort in knowing that anyone can learn Russian. Also, unless there is some handicap, I guarantee my students will speak in complete sentences within minutes. My classes are very interactive and I incorporate interesting short cultural videos into my classes. One cannot learn a language without learning about the culture. I help to bring this to life.

My cancellation policy is 24 hours, and my scheduling is flexible.

As a self-taught mixed-media artist for 29 years, I also teach sewing and other art forms.

I look forward to teaching you through WyzAnt, and helping to bridge the cultural gap between the Slavic culture and ours." less...
