I was born and rasied in Kodiak in a commercial fishing family (I still fish in the summer), and have lived here most of my life, aside from some time spent at school and teaching in Russia. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Russian Language and Culture and a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I greatly enjoy working with adults who want to improve their lives, and I love to provide individualized advising and follow-up with my students. Please contact me if you have any questions about earning your GED, learning or improving your English, or polishing your skills so you can begin college or find a rewarding career. I look forward to speaking with you.
