I have a passion for teaching and a passion for Eastern European history, culture, and language. I currently teach Russian to K-8 students at the Academy of Math & Science in Phoenix, Arizona. I have previously taught Russian at the secondary level in the Scottsdale Unified School District and at the Bolshoi Ballet Summer Intensive Program in Middlebury, Connecticut. I have also taught at the post-secondary level at The Ohio State University, Middlebury College, and the University of Toronto....
Joseph has helped my two boys in 3rd and 6th grade get better grades by helping them write book reports and projects. He has helped my older son in grammar and vocab by helping him study, on his most recent test on correct pronoun usage he got an A. Joseph is always available when we need him.

Joseph was on time, communicated well and was patient during sessions. We used him to review lengthy essays, offering grammar insight and flow. He was great and would highly recommend.

I had a small one-off need to learn to speak just a few sentences of Russian as part of a speech I was preparing to deliver, and Joseph helped me nail it in just a few short lessons. He was prepared, very helpful, and friendly throughout the process. And most importantly, according to the native Russian speakers in the audience, they perfectly understood my Russian, which was the goal. I would recommend Joseph highly.

My teenage daughter has been taking weekly and sometimes twice weekly lessons from Joseph for a year now. Finding him for her tutor was one of the best things we've been able to do for her. She is preparing for Global Studies/Russian as her college major and Joseph's enthusiasm for and deep knowledge of the language has been invaluable. He surpasses anything we could have hoped for. As a teacher, he uses a variety of methods beyond reading and writing and conversation. He incorporates videos, games, literature and cultural awareness. He gently sets goals that keep her achieving and accomplishing more and more. An effective teacher is one who has knowledge of the subject as well as a true love for both the subject and for teaching others. Joseph has all this. He is engaging and takes his lessons into aspects of the language and culture that make them interesting and fun. My daughter looks forward to every lesson and is thrilled with how far she has come in her language skills. He is a rare find and we consider ourselves so fortunate to have found him.

Joseph taught my son Alex chess today. He was very patient and knowledgeable and explained things in ways an 8 year old could understand. He is clearly a very good teacher.
