To Whom it may Concern, Anna has a very good experience. She was born in Russia and has a very good backing in the Russian language and the English language. In the 1990's she helped me through the translation of my work in Russian. Along the same lines, she helped translate the Russian documents that I retrieved from the KGB archives. I did all of the leg work of visiting the sites, archives, and locations in Russia (over 22 times) in which I visited locations that my relative was sent to in Russia in the 1920's. I had guides and interpreters in Russia to assist me. I have the desire to learn the language (Russian). It is a hard language. Anna has guided me through many lessons. I can read and translate a lot of the work in the lessons. I reviewed many document from the Archives in America, Russia, Finland. I met with additional people in Russia to uncover the story of my relative. I have met Anna's father and mother several times in Moscow. I met many other Russians and as they became familiar with my effort, they noted that I had been to more places in Russia then most Russians. Interesting, I was honored with a "Honorable Professor" certificate from the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences Section of Military History , culture and law for my work in 1999. they noted that I was the only American to receive the honor and only 47 Russians had received. I enjoyed talking with young children. They want to learn English, and I wanted to learn Russian. In one time, I was asked to talk to a class. Questions where directed to me and from me to the class. I did need an interpreter at the time. I could go on forever about my experiences. But, Anna would have me tell stories at the beginning of every class. I she would help me, correct me, and go on. Every class produced many new words. I had trouble remembering everything. But, little by little, I developed my Russian skills. I am still receiving lessons from Anna. I will admit that this is more about me then Anna. But, Anna is an excellent teacher of the Russian language (and French, Spanish, and Hebrew). She has been there In teaching me the language, the culture, and the many things about Russia. Sincerely, Edward M.

    About

    I would like to introduce myself to you. Originally from China, I graduated from the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor with both BA and Master degree in Statistics & Actuarial Math, minored in Education. Working as a TA/ graduate instructor for years, I have taught all level of Chinese classes and many of my students have found interests not only in Chinese language, but also in Chinese culture. Many of my students studied abroad and few of them became very successful in international business field related to China. Currently, I'm working in financial industry but I always enjoying teaching. I am aware that there are many many Chinese teacher who are native Chinese speaker, but it is very rare to find Chinese teacher who can communicate effectively in both Chinese and English, especially understanding both cultures. I can teach you excellent Chinese language skill, and design a good study plan that gives you exposure beyond any classroom you have been. Please shoot me a message and we can discuss further details. Thank you!
