If you are interested in learning the Russian language, correcting your pronunciation or spelling, learning how to read, or improving your understanding then there’s no better way to do it than to learn from a native speaker.

I am a native Russian speaker and fluent in English. I have lived in the United States for over 20 years. Having over 20 years of experience teaching Russian I am flexible in adjusting my teaching style and homework to each of my student's individual needs. I have experience with students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and language proficiency levels.

Why do most of us want to learn a language? Probably because we want to communicate with other people in it.

We often teach language through a set of grammar rules and vocabulary lists you need to recite with a teacher.

How effective is this teaching? My answer is not very much. I’ve been learning English for 12 years, through my middle school, high school, and college years. It became meaningful only ...

Maria is not your average piano teacher. She does not merely teach you to play the piano--she teaches you to feel the music, to really experience it and, most importantly, to enjoy it. As an advanced adult student, I went through a few different teachers before finally finding Maria. I am so glad I did! She is taking my playing to a whole new level and going over my technique with a fine-toothed comb. I cannot recommend her enough!!
Lydia K.
Maria focuses on foundation, which is the most important strategy for improving in a long term. Maria puts effort to make piano as fun and beautiful instead of hard training. She is also very flexible in lesson times and tries to accommodate students' interest and need. I am glad I found her as my teacher!
Mark
I throughly enjoy the lesson time spent with Maria as a beginner. She is an accomplished musician and transmits her passion for the piano to me as her student. She is kind and patient and totally focused on my comfort level and ensuring that I understand her approach to learning to play. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in starting with the basics and having the enthusiasm for learning that she has for teaching.

I’ve always struggled with math. It was no surprise that I had significant trouble with the GRE Quantitive section. I had tried one tutor before working with Daniel. I ended up getting the same score that I had on past tests and I felt that I was never going to get past the hurdle. I decided to find another tutor and after looking around a while and messaging several tutors on TakeLessons I connected with Daniel. Hands down he has the best methods for how I learn. He provides lesson plans, homework, and goes through every problem step by step to ensure that you are comprehending. He also tests your knowledge by having you basically teach him what you’ve learned. If you can’t explain it, then you don’t know it, is what he says. It has been awesome working with him and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone that needs help with math at any level.

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

"Anna and I worked together for several years as I studied Russian. Her lessons are always clear, interactive, fun and helpful. She incorporates classic literature, films, music and pop culture into her lessons so the students are learning not just language, but also culture and history. Every lesson with Anna opened my eyes to something new. Many teachers only teach grammar, but Anna takes a holistic approach and helps students with pronunciation, high-frequency phrases, colloquial language, listening practice, and much more. I highly recommend her. Russian is a difficult language and Anna is the ideal teacher to help you tackle it!"
