I am a current private tutor and entrepreneur with 9+ years of experience FEATURED ON FORBES 30 UNDER 30 in 2016.

I strive to not just teach the subject, but also the psychology of elite test-takers, to not just get you ready for one test, but to also teach you the process that allows for repeated & continued success.

With my quadrilingual ability, I created “La Méthode” or in English, The Method, a tutoring style combining the best of the American and the French approachs to learning so that students can learn from world-renowned theories at the same time as they discover more practical examples to delve into.

French is my mother tongue, I have specialized at teaching beginners and more advanced learners the subtlety and style of these languages. In the past, I designed French cultural classes for the U.S. military and translated 200+ expressions to and from English and performed voiceover for 10+ pronunciation videos for a language program.

About Aziz

I have changed environments many times, settling in Paris after living in Morocco for eighteen years then moving to a complete new world, here in the USA. Helped by the fact that I am quadrilingual, I am quite used to interact with people from different backgrounds. While I love helping students un

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,

Tatiana is amazing! I really would never trade her for the world. She is patient, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable, thorough, clear, and just overall great. If it weren’t for her I would’ve quit a long time ago. I highly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed. Danke schön Tatiana!!
Annabel J.
I've been studying Russian with Tatiana for close to six months now at two lessons per week. From the very beginning, it's been an immensely fruitful and deeply enjoyable experience -- I feel my progress in the language is palpable (and I was a total beginner at 23). Our lessons are fun, and the homework assignments (most often, textbook exercises and reading responses to Russian-language films) challenging (though never to the point of being stressful). A huge bonus is that our textbook is online and free. I've been deliriously happy with my experience, and cannot recommend Tatiana enough.

My daughter has been very happy with Tatiana’s lessons

"Prajakta is my Hindi teacher! I was nervous about online lessons but she is very warm and patient! The online class works very well as it’s convenient timing from your own home. The format is constant interaction, reviewing word lists or practicing typical conversation phrases and topics. Even though it was my first class I was reciting entire sentences and phrases by the end of the first hour! Prajakta Repeates each word several times so I can pick up the correct accent and is patient as i sound out words and recite them a few times. She writes words and sentences on the whiteboard for me to note down spelling. We focused on spoken Hindi and I began learning the alphabet so I can read and write. Glad I signed up and can’t wait to see how fluent I am in 3 months!"
