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.
Pierre
I had Anna as my Russian tutor this year at UCLA. She is very friendly and she knows how to present topics in an interesting way. I enjoyed the sessions with her because there was always a time to converse a bit in Russian on various topics that we chose, which helped me to practice my oral skills. Anna always corrected my mistakes in a very kindly way. She also helped me to expand a lot my vocabulary in Russian and to understand better Russian grammar. I truly recommend Anna's lessons!

Привет! Russian is my first language and it has a very special place in my heart. I love it for its emotional charge and incredible poetic expression.
After many years of helping my friends who study classical voice, I found new interesting and simpler ways to teach this language.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the same week, or their lesson time will be charged in full. For illnesses and family emergencies I will require a doctor's note or a short letter explaining the reason behind their absence.

Q.: What if I have to ...

Добро пожаловать!

Russian language spoken by over 250 million people. It is a beautiful language that grew and developed as loyal companion to the unique Russian culture. It's development was shaped with by some of the best writers and poets in the world, such as Pushkin and Tolstoy.

I believe that teaching a language without a well integrated cultural component is akin to crime, as doing so will deprive the student of opportunity of obtaining a gateway to understanding Russian culture... and perhaps a "mysterious Russian soul."

Unlike other subjects, where a curriculum is closely followed, Russian lessons are vibrant and are designed to promote fluency in conversation reading and writing. Poetry, videos and music are are integrated into the lesson plan - making learning efficient and fun.

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

"Mrs. Aksana is a wonderful instructor! I would gladly recommend her to anyone wanting to enhance their Russian knowledge. She is very interactive and really gives you a complete understanding of the language. I have been meeting with Aksana for a few months now and I started off at the beginner level. I can really see an improvement in my understanding of Russian at this point in my studies. If you are looking to be fluent in the Russian language, Aksana would be a great instructor for you!"

I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared.
