I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. She explained grammatical concepts in a way that was easy to understand and her use of gestures with certain words really helped me remember vocabulary words and pronunciation. Anna also provided numerous resources for studying Russian outside of lessons and had wonderful recommendations for Russian YouTube videos. Thank you Anna!
Jorge
Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town
Nihal
I had Anna as my Russian tutor at UCLA for just over a year, and visited her session for an hour every week. She is incredibly friendly and personable, and goes above and beyond to support her students. During tuition, she would help us both with keeping up with the course content and with exploring the language outside of it. Learning Russian can be daunting for students who have no cultural or linguistic background in it, but Anna's demeanor and approach helped me a lot with developing confidence and building on my strengths. Meeting weekly with Anna is one of the things that I will truly miss once out of the Russian department.

I purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.

Michael is very patient and will take his time to assure that you have a firm grasp on the Russian language, including pronunciation.

Private Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

Russian is my first language. I can teach you to communicate verbally, read, and write in Russian at an advanced level. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

"Anna Novikova is one of the most affable and interesting instructors I have ever had, making Russian, which is normally a difficult and intimidating subject, something to look forward to every week. Personally, I would recomend tutoring sessions for the conversations alone, but she also is a very intelligent woman and competent instructor, and your understanding of Russian is sure to improve with her."

"Aksana is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with me when I do not understand something but she will work with me until I am able to grasp the concept. I am currently taking Russian classes at a University but Aksana has been the most valuable asset when it comes to being able to learn the language properly. She is able to clearly explain the rules of the language and it is obvious she is very knowledgeable pertaining to all subjects in Russian. Without Aksana I would not feel as comfortable with my ability to learn the language. Our weekly meetings have helped me to not only speak but understand the language and culture more. I have been with her for about 4 months but look forward to continuing my lessons throughout my college career! She not only helps me during our lessons but also provides me with many other resources to continue my studies. I am very thankful for all Aksana has done and continues to do for me! By far the best Russian teacher I have had."

"Anna is a truly fantastic teacher who clearly loves what she does. Her enthusiasm and professionalism always inspire me as a student. I have had the pleasure of learning Russian with Anna for over a year now and can attest to the positive effect her lessons have had on my Russian proficiency. She always answers every question I have clearly and efficiently and provides helpful examples that reinforce the material we covered. During our discussions, Anna also explains elements of Russian culture and traditions which any serious student of Russian should know. Anna has helped me improve my conversational Russian, understanding of idioms and jargon, as well as professional and academic writing.

Anna shines as an outstanding teacher of Russian. She is engaging, very interesting to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in improving their Russian proficiency should work with Anna!"
