As a recent graduate from Eastern Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education (B.A.E), I am excited to welcome the opportunity to tutor. While at university, I majored in social studies and I minored in English. I am passionate about social studies and I am looking forward to guiding others on the journey to academic success.

Besides having a passion for social studies, I am also passionate about different cultures. I am trilingual. I speak English (fluently), Russian (fluently), and Ukranian (elementary). Knowing several languages has enabled me to connect to other people and other cultures. Thus, I am someone who embraces diversity with great joy.

Currently, I am a substitute teacher (and loving every minute of it). I look forward with excitement to being your tutor.
