Russian Tutoring Program

The Russian Tutoring Program was created by EURUS graduate students to help other students improve their knowledge of the Russian language, improve Russian translation skills, and learn more about Russian culture. Originally conceived as an alternative to language study trips abroad during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the tutoring program has continued as a way for EURUS students to improve their Russian language skills to conduct research and to pass the Russian translation exam required by the MA program in EURUS. The program is supported by the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies and Faculty of Public Affairs at Carleton University.

Read, speak, translate with our tutors: Sladjana Grmas and Nazik Teshebaeva.

Our Russian tutors help each interested student to tackle different aspects of the language (speaking, reading comprehension, translation, grammar, vocabulary, etc.) in one-on-one lessons. These lessons are tailored to the student’s needs.

The tutoring sessions will supplement our regular language courses and train you to translate on your way to meeting the EURUS language requirement.

The program consists of two parts – General Tutoring Sessions (with Sladjana) and Translation Tutoring Sessions (With Nazik). When applying to join the program, students should indicate whether they are interested in the first, second, or both parts.

Important points about this program:

  • Russian Tutoring Program is offered to EURUS students only
  • Classes for General Tutoring are online, while the translation part can be both, online and in-person
  • To join, students must have at least some knowledge of Russian
  • Most of our students are Graduate students, but Undergraduate students are also eligible.
