I am here both to teach English and learn Russian. My qualifications to teach include a BS degree from St. Cloud State University, (MN), where I graduated with honors, and elementary teaching certification from Macalester College, (St. Paul). I taught for about 12 years in public schools in the US, and I have taught ESL for 2 years in Japan and 1 1/2 years in Ukraine. I am also a member of MENSA, and every student I have helped prepare for a language exam has passed! I am offering a half-hour introduction, and one hour classes of either conversation practice, or guided lessons.
