Russian Language Instructor
Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary is seeking to hire a full-time, on-site Russian Language instructor for the 2012-2013 academic year, with the opportunity to continue. HTOS is the seminary of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Russian language is a critical part of our program. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, and many with no Russian language instruction at all. Class sizes are small, from 2-8.
A teacher in this environment will need to be able to teach mostly English-speaking students who have different levels of Russian training, giving them a solid foundation in Russian grammar and syntax, with special attention to the practical language needs of future clergymen of the Russian Orthodox Church primarily outside of Russia. Some students may be native speakers with little or no Russian Language instruction.
A potential candidate should possess at least a Master’s Degree in Russian Language or a related field by Sept. 1.
Courses: Russian I: 10 hours per week, Russian II: 5 hours per week
Housing or a housing allowance is provided.
