Lessons will be structured, focusing on all aspects of learning the Russian language including grammar, spelling, vocabulary pronunciation, and oral speech. The focus may be drawn to certain areas, depending on the individual student's needs. An agreed format of testing for understanding and other forms of checkpoints will be established between pupil and teacher.

About Bella
I am a piano teacher with over 25 years of experience. I was hand-picked to began training at the early age of 6 through the Music School for Gifted Children in Russia. After 11 years of intensive training in piano performance and theory, I went on to complete my Bachelors degree at Music Institute of Russia. There I was classically trained in music education and accompaniment.

Soon after that I began to pursue my love of teaching and taught students of all ages in a music school in Russia. I am currently a member of HMTA, MTNA, and TMTA teacher associations.

I have worked at the Suzuki Music School of Houston since 2000, instructing students in piano, piano performance, and theory. My students perform at several musicales and recitals every year to demonstrate their skills and receive recognition for their hard work. I take pride
in getting them ready for their debuts and encouraging their interest in different kinds of musical pieces and genres. Those interested in putting in the extra effort for competitions can be entered into those as well.

Teaching is my passion and I believe that children gain so much more than just the beautiful skill of tickling the ivories. Students of all ages gain confidence, self-esteem, and a good work ethic. Music is linked to better math grades, improved memory, and coordination in general. I love that my job is helping students achieve their goals. I enjoy watching them succeed and explore their talents in piano.I believe that music is a gift which you can give yourself at any age. It will expand your mind and fill your heart. It is a skill which you and your family will enjoy forever. Although many of the students I work with begin at age 5, I have seen adults of all ages succeed under my tutelage.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have a tailored curriculum based on their age, experience, and preferences. They can also expect a teacher who is patient, understanding, and demands the very best from the students to ensure that they are getting the most out of their lessons!

I am trained in both Traditional and Suzuki methods and alternate between them based on what the student wants. I often start the students on sight-reading and picking up the song by ear before moving on to more complex pieces. You will see your improvement and progress in just a few weeks time!

Initially I will provide copies of the musical pieces but will give my recommendations for a more permanent book. Students should be equipped with a piano or keyboard both for lessons and practice between sessions.

Many students play piano in hopes of continuing with their instrument well into their young adult and adult lives. Thus they seek to put their talent on college admissions applications. Requests for references and assistance in recording tapes to send will happily be fulfilled with advance notice!

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students would need to possess a piano or keyboard at their place of residence.

*** Specialities ***
I specialize both in Traditional and Suzuki methods.

We have been with Bella for 3 months now and my daughter has made exceptional progress. Although my daughter was not a beginner piano player, she was not challenged enough. Bella is direct and firm about her teaching and it has made my daughter be more disciplined. My daughter is proud of her progress and can't believe she can play multi paged pieces now. I would recommend Bella to any student who wants to take their piano playing to the next level. We are looking forward to the next recital to showcase her progress and achievement!

My husband and I are so pleased with the progress our daughter has made with the Suzuki method. Amelia began playing with both hands way earlier than we expected. She loves playing all her favorite songs to her friends!

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

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

Conversation and culture are two things I enjoy when it comes to Russian. I am a native speaker of Russia. Because I have been working with people from many different cultures, I can give you unique cultural insights about Russian language and Russian culture.

About Elena
If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated teacher to help you get high scores on TOEFL or IELTS or to prepare for college admission in the USA, look no more. As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have been teaching grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and test prep to students applying to colleges in English-speaking countries or improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are set, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for their future, and proficiency levels. Additionally,
I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.
