Tutor or course for Russian refresher

Sept 2004

Any suggestions for tutors or courses for a Russian language refresher course? UC Extension no longer offers Russian, and UC has only daytime classes, 4x weekly. I'm in Berkeley. Thanks. Marian

A few years back I was trying to find the same thing. I called the Departemtn of Slavic Languages at Cal and they had a list of grad students who tutor. If I were you I would give them a call and ask. I got to work with a native speaker and she lived in the UC Village so it was really fun and convenient. Eileen

I offer Russian group classes in small groups of three to
six people in a cozy office in downtown Berkeley. 

THE FEE is $25 per hour for each person in class.

I am a UC Berkeley instructor and a PhD candidate.
I have 5 years experience of teaching languages at UC
Berkeley and 5 + years experience of tutoring Russian to
professionals, high school, college, and graduate students
in the Bay Area.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I'm a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, where I just received
my Ph.D. in Russian literature. At Berkeley, I also taught
the Russian language for 3 semesters; my courses focused on
Beginning Russian (1st and 2nd semester) and Intermediate
(4th semester), so I have a range of materials covering both
levels. I have also lived and traveled in Russia, so my
knowledge of Russian extends from textbook level grammar to
conversation and some slang. My going rate is $30-$35.

I offer Russian tutoring to all levels of students. I am a
Russian native speaker, originally from Moscow. I grew up in
the Soviet Union and received my B.A. in foreign languages
in one of the Moscow universities.

I also have M.A. from the University of California, Berkeley
and am currently a PhD candidate at a language department
there, working on my dissertation. I have been studying and
teaching different languages all my life. I taught at the
University of Berkeley and I have a few years experience
tutoring Russian to professionals, middle, and high school
students of different levels: from complete beginners to the
very advanced students.

I usually meet with my students in Berkeley or Albany. I can
also travel to your home. Please e-mail me if you want to
learn Russian or improve the knowledge you already have.
