"I am a native Russian speaker, with a Master's degree in Russian Philology (specializing in Russian language) from a Russian University. I have over 10 years of practical experience as a teacher and instructor, ranging from beginner to advanced students, from one-on-one to small groups. I am likely most effective with college and adult students, both casual and professional, at any level of proficiency (beginner, intermediate, advanced).

Many tutors have unrelated degrees or merely possess teaching certificates that are awarded after only a month or, in the best case, three months, of on-line learning. However, few are as specialized, and fewer still combine academic qualification with real world experience.

I have a deep understanding of the diagnostic assessment process and ILR scale. I worked with private institutions and organizations, journalists, doctors, US government employees and I taught in the best foreign language school in the military, if not the world. My students achieve very high scores on their tests (including DLPT) and also on their oral proficiency interviews.

I continue to travel to Russia, in part to keep abreast of changes in how Russian is actually spoken by modern Russians. While I understand the usefulness of textbooks and pre-prepared teaching materials, I do not rely on them completely, and I think it is important to notice how the language evolves, and teach these most up-to-date nuances to my students.

So why would you want to learn Russian?

For those wishing to enjoy the intellectual challenge of another language, my specific educational background in Russian philology is an ideal match.

For those who wish to travel to Russia (an increasingly popular tourist destination) or a Russian-speaking country, I have lived there for many years, and know both the culture and language very well, and as I mentioned, I continue to travel there to note the changes, so I see Russia as both a native and a tourist.

For those who simply wish to correspond with another native Russi" less...
