I studied physics and linguistics at the University of Maryland. I have a TEFL certification. I've worked for two years as an English teacher with children in Russia (Moscow and Rostov-on-Don). I taught business English for half a year in Tokyo, Japan and have been living in Moscow for the past year.
My primary goal as an English tutor is to understand the needs and goals of my students and then work with them to develop a personalized plan for improving their conversational abilities. I am a passionate language learner (I speak Russian and Spanish as a foreign language) and have learned many useful techniques that I enjoy sharing with my students.
