This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Reading,
Writing,
Grammar,
Conversation
Language development,
Pronunciation,
Social Language Use.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.

About Aksana
PhD. in Russian Language and Literature, Immanuel Kant State University of Russia (Kaliningrad State University), Russia, 2002 Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Russian and Belarusian Languages and Literature (Diploma with honors), Belarusian State University, Belarus, 1995.

I am a native Russian tutor. Now I live in NYC and teach Russian as foreign language in CUNY.

    I teach the Russian language from the very beginning - elementary, basic level - to higher levels.
  The most important goal of my classes is that you enjoy our meetings by keeping interest and feeling the progress.
  Individual approach to each student is the key point to the success. We study the vocabulary, grammar, and situations related to the student's current activities. As a result all my students successfully use the learned skills for their professional
or private life.
  During my lessons I'm trying to reach the best balance between speaking, listening, grammar, conversation and other aspects of the language.
  I can help you understand the system of the Russian language, so that you were not limited by phrases that you learn during the lesson, but could make your own sentences, paragraphs, express your thoughts in different ways.
  We will pay enough attention to grammar, pronunciation, reading and speaking.
  I will explain you the way Russians talk in their everyday life, because some Russian foundations and manners differ from American ones.
  As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you an honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum that fits your needs.
  I'll be happy to help you learn the Russian language. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
  Thank you for your interest - I look forward to seeing you in my classes!

Policy: All changes in the schedule (except emergencies) should be made 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise the lesson will be marked as missed.

Aksana is great! She moves at the right pace and makes sure that I understand the content before moving on. She keeps the material engaging and the lessons are very enjoyable. I am very impressed by her knowledge of the history and origins of the language as well as teaching methodologies to help students understand more quickly - she is truly a gifted, professional teacher of the language. I will continue to take lessons with Aksana in my path to fluency, and I would highly recommend taking classes with Aksana!

She establishes a platform of ease initially to make students comfortable to learn the language and always uses a practical situation of daily livelihood to express in that language. Rather than dominating the stance she conveniently allows her students to express themselves with affirmation and confidence. When struggling she is never frustrated and does not hesitate to go through what has been taught prior as basic steps to affluence in the learning process. Avoiding confusion and uncertainty is the key to learning a language and she is well crafted in avoiding these obstacles. Personally I feel greatly fortunate and studying under her has me assured that someday I will definitely be as fluent as a native speaker.

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

I am a native Russian speaker. During the lesson I use books of russian authors that are really interesting and helpful. My lesson combines: grammar, reading and listening. In such way we are able to learn all aspects that will help the student to speak fluently and understand native speakers easily. I also provide exercises and give hometasks to practice the material we learned during the lesson. A little bit later, we will start to read and learn articles about culture and traditions as well. It is really interesting and will give a student a lot of useful knowledges. My classes are really interesting and they will help a student to reach his/her goals.

About Viktoriia
I am from Ukraine, but last couple of years I live in USA. My teaching experience is 3 years, but since Russian is my native language, I like teaching others.
