ExperienceI graduated from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor with a degree in Slavic Languages & Literature, focusing particularly on the Russian language. I am currently taking graduate courses at Harvard, with over 60 credits completed so far. After I complete my thesis, I will be finished with this degree. With my background in Russian, I started tutoring native Armenian and Russian students trying to learn English. My experience reaches further back still, as I completed training as an ESL/TESOL instructor while an undergraduate. I worked with three students primarily, including two speakers of Punjabi and one Spanish speaker. I also enjoy tutoring writing, specializing in the good old five paragraph essay. I have worked with students from middle school up through PhD candidates, helping them to hone their writing skills regardless of the subject or grade level (whether it be a literature essay or the written part of a college entrance exam). I approach each student the same, no matter the age or level of study, and I enjoy helping them achieve the feeling of a project well done. Other specific subjects that I enjoy tutoring include American and British literature and technology and computer science.When I'm not tutoring or studying myself, I like to read, hike, sew, travel, and take photographs.
