I am an English speaking tourist who just arrived to Saint Petersburg, Russia to study the language for a few months. I am looking to hire someone as an interpreter/guide on an hourly basis. The expectations are basic, I am not looking to hire professional interpreter or guide (I already know where to find one), just someone who understands and speaks Russian AND English very well, to help with some basic tasks (e.g. communicating with a clinic where staff only speaks Russian, help with a non-English speaking store clerk). Bonus points for someone who knows the city very well and can provide some good advice.
Please note that this would be an ongoing medium/long term project (starting with a few weeks).
