College Avenue Campus
New Brunswick, New Jersey 08901

Fall 2017 Office Hours: Mondays, 2-3pm

Courses Taught:

Elementary Russian I, MTTh 11:30am-12:50pm, AB 3100

Research Interests:

My area of focus is Russian grammar and communication in Russian. I place special emphasis on helping students to build a strong foundation early on in support of a lifetime of reading and speaking Russian confidently - and with understanding.  Whenever possible, my classes involve materials from social media, literature, and vocabulary relevant to current issues and events.  These materials help to show students that most Russian is located outside the textbook (no disrespect to textbooks, of course).
