Background

I have taught academic English courses at SUNY Oswego, NY for many years. I had students from many different language backgrounds, including Puerto Rico, South Korea, China, etc. I have an excellent knowledge of grammar, academic writing and speaking, as well as American culture. I am reliable, organized, patient and empathetic to the needs of my students. I can help you raise your language confidence and improve your language and culture skills. I relocated to the U.S. from Russia and have lived and worked here for the past twenty years. I have a near native English speaker proficiency and strong academic skills. I worked as an English professor at an American college, and can help you with academic English as well as with everyday linguistic survival in another culture.
