I graduated from the People's Friendship University of Russia, earned my degree in World History (BA in World History), obtained a translators's certificate in Chinese language and proficiency in English. My diploma comes with teaching credentials, which were received after academic training in teaching in selected subjects.
I spent three full academic years in Tianjin University, where I earned certificates in Chinese language proficiency (including HSK certificate), and took Master's degre...
She is such a patient person. Allowing me to learn at my own pace but still making sure I am always moving forward in the language! I would recommend her for anyone looking to learn Russian.

Elena provided me with some helpful materials, and I was able to understand the lesson clearly. She carefully explained to me how Russian cases work. I believe she wants her students to be successful in any subject.

Elena taught me the Russian alphabet! I am continuing with another tutor who teaches both French and Russian, because those are my two target languages, but I had one lesson with Elena, and it was wonderful. She's a very engaging, charismatic, knowledgable person, who speaks Russian, Mandarin, some Korean, and has a fantastic command of the English language that is really helpful. She is very kind and has a fascinating background, and I can tell that she is really good at motivating her students. She's a really well-organized teacher who also loves Russian literature, and she recommended the Living Language Russian set to me, which is going to be very helpful. She also recommended The Master and the Margarita, which I'm very excited to read. She teaches from the Living Language series, and it was very motivating to hear about her other students' success with the Russian language. I'm sure she would be a great match for any student learning Russian and/or Mandarin.

Elena jumped right in on my son's first Chinese lesson and got busy teaching. He said he liked her. I was very impressed with her communication with us about appointment dates/times, she was on time, professional and pleasent. First impression is very good. If my son likes her and he can learn from her, we have a great fit. Thank you
