About Tutor

Coming from a very loving family, my mother had me reading at a college level before I was 6 years old. They taught me not only to love the pursuit of knowledge, but to love and understand the English language. As I come from Canada, I understand the idiosyncrasies of both British English, as well as American English. I've personally studied books on linguistics, and in depth books on English grammar, and understand the differences between the languages, and the problems that occur between these languages when trying to study another language group. I'm currently still studying Russian, as well as starting to study Armenian.

Experience

I have been teaching English in Moscow, Russia for 5 years, and have been tutoring students in the U.S. for much longer. In Russia, I have taught students ranging from 4 years old to adults, from beginner to advanced, both single, and in groups, from conversational English, to business English, and certain special fields. I've supported Russian courses in English, in public schools here in Science, Maths, Physics, and English practice. I also specialize in certain fields of English that are difficult for foreigners learning English, such as perfect tenses, articles, and prepositions.

Teaching Approach

My methodology varies depending on the desire of the student, or parents of the student. I offer from the vary basic conversational English(where I offer movies and reading materials, in which we discuss said materials), straight English lessons(grammar and vocabulary), or specialties, such as Business English, or certain specialty industries.
