    Teaching Approach

    I have been trying to find something that is so simple that it makes my students say, “Yep, it’s so easy!”
    I wish I could keep my students loyal, I could educate them, satisfy their needs, stand behind my words, and make that I do everything I say I'm going to do. I try to convey not only an understanding of the language but also an enthusiasm for it, and an interest in the rich study of culture.

    Program Description

    If you were to ask me what the three most important skills were for teacher to have, I’d say talent for teaching would be third, knowledge of subject would be second, but relationship- building comes first. My students love me, because I try to develop trusting relationships with an individual. I have been teaching Latin and Russian to students of all ages, from young children to advanced graduate students, for over twenty five years. I taught at the University of Moscow for several years, but my main focus has been on private students, both home-schooler s and students who take Latin in addition to a regular school curriculum, as well as adult students who choose to study Latin or Russian for fun. I have taught private students individually and in groups, in their homes, in mine, in bookstores and coffee houses and libraries and parks.

    Teaching Experience

    I was employed as an Instructor of Russian language and literature,La tin Language, Old Slavic Language, Russian Dialect Studies,Histo ry of Religions, History of Philosophies, Mythology, Antique Literature and Historical Grammar of Latin Language,Slav ic Philology, Old-Russian Language.

Also completed the full-time course of specializatio n in Classic Philology: Latin and Greek Languages (Grade Point Average: 4). Further was accepted to the Post-Graduate School of the Tomsk State University, Department of Russian Language (Grade Point Average: 4), and presented the Ph.D. Thesis.
    I was awarded the degree of Ph.D. in Education, Specializatio n in Russian Language, and was awarded the Degree of Master of Arts in Education, Specializatio n in Classic Philology: Latin and Greek Languages.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • As a language teacher I agree with John A. Rassias: "Language study is a route to maturity. Indeed, as in life, if the person is the same today as he was yesterday, it would be an act of mercy to pronounce him dead and to place him in a coffin, rather than in classroom." And I try not to stop at my achivements. I do everything to animate my students and I love them.
