I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reach your communication goals in speaking American English! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others!

I had so much fun working with Alex. She has excellent teaching skills and a delightful personality. I am already excited for my next lesson.
Elena
I had a fantastic experience with Alexandra. I noticed a tremendous improvement in the way how I speak, pronounce the sounds (I'm not a native speaker), and express myself. What's even more important, I have now a toolbox of exercises and techniques that I can use anytime I need to rehearse my speech before a future presentation or a speaking engagement!
Aizhan
This is my first time ever taking accent reduction class. I’ve completed three lessons so far and it has been very interesting. It has been useful to learn about the sounds of the language. My tutor Alex explains it well, provides me with exercises that I can do on my own, as well as practices with me during the class. It is nice to hear other people already noticing my better articulation, unbelievable. Thank you Alex, looking forward to completing the course with you!

Not only do I speak fluent French, having grown up with French parents,
but my lessons are tailored to teach you about French culture and tradition.

My lessons do not follow a structured class setting, often leading to boredom and minimal learning retention. Instead, you will learn how to truly hold conversations in French, talking about your interests, passions, current events etc... I want YOU to be the master of your progression, and I will be there along to guide you! I will help you build proper sentences & aid you with your pronunciation, and sooner than later you will impress your friends, family & colleagues with your abundance of knowledge!

About Roxanne

Roxanne is very good teacher and she is so patient, allowing me to make mistakes as she aims to achieve the goals I’ve told her I would like to achieve.
Éléonore
I was a student of Roxanne while in high school and she helped me write essays and prepare for several presentations. Her classes were always fun and light-hearted and I had some good time learning French. She helped me with my French final presentation about “France and its cultures" and I got an A grade.
I highly recommend Roxanne as a private French tutor, you won't find better than her.
With Roxanne, you will definitely improve your French!
Martin
Roxanne is an extremely dedicated and caring teacher, with great energy and a very diverse background. I love the way she personalizes her lessons using her deep knowledge of multiple cultures, and which is the reason why I fell in love with her teaching style. Finally Roxanne is a very kind, punctual and dedicated educator who cares for her students and I would recommend her to any student, whether a beginner or intermediate.

I was interested in learning to sign from the time I was a little girl. American Sign Language and the Deaf culture have always been fascinating to me. When it was time to choose a college and career, I sought a way to use ASL in my daily life. I became a Teacher for the Deaf, and I continue to have a passion for both the language and the culture. I want to share that passion with you!

I have been a Teacher for the Deaf for 5 years. I work daily with students who use ASL as their main form of communication. In addition to meeting their individual needs, I create goals and implement direct lessons to help them learn and improve ASL.

I learned American Sign Language in a formal college setting. I learned ASL from both Deaf and hearing instructors. I met several times weekly with my professors in the classroom setting and participated in "immersion" hours throughout my college career. Now, I use it daily to communicate with my students and other professionals.

About Robyn

"Turtle." It was the first sign I learned as a kid, and it stuck with me. From that time forward, I wanted to learn American Sign Language. I didn't have the opportunity until I reached college, where I dove head first into the world of ASL and the Deaf community. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in
