"Hello, I'm Ilya. I was born in Moscow, Russia but have lived and worked in Massachusetts for over 20 years. Now I am retired from my long career in import / export and so have taken up my old love, teaching. In my youth, I got a degree in Pedagogical Studies (teaching) from the Moscow Pedagogical University and tutored for 10 years. I later got a Masters, moved to America and enjoyed professional success but I missed the one-on-one interactions and seeing my students learn and thrive. Therefore, in my retirement I have rededicated myself to this pursuit. Additionally, I've been working part-time as an interpreter at hospitals all over Massachusetts for the past 15 years. It really brought me joy to be able to help others to fully understand their medical rights, and to engage with the doctors in a way that makes them feel comfortable.

I pride myself on the flexibility to address any issues you may have with your Russian studies. Perhaps you have coursework that you would like to understand better? In that case, we will use your materials and I'll explain the subject matter and the underlying concepts in different ways until you master it. Or maybe you would like to learn the language from scratch? In that case, I would provide my own materials and take you from the alphabet, through Dostoevsky, if desired.

Though I have tutored privately for a long time, I am new to this platform. Therefore, I am keeping my prices very low to gain feedback and build up my profile. I'd love to help you learn Russian in a way that will be both fun and easy to understand, because fun makes the lessons something to look forward to. And, if you are unsatisfied in any way, the lesson is completely free.

I'm available in person around Massachusetts or Connecticut or online. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Let's dive in!" less...
