I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

Anyone looking to learn a new language would be well served by taking a lesson with Victoria. She goes out of her way to make the environment comfortable while also being extremely professional and good-humored. Not only that, after three lessons I am seeing a lot of measurable progress in my understanding of Russian language and culture. Again, I can’t recommend Victoria enough!

Russian is my first language. I can teach you to communicate verbally, read, and write in Russian at an advanced level. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

About Diana

Welcome! I am glad to meet you. My name is Ms. Diana, and I will be your teacher. I'm looking forward to helping you on your path towards academic success!

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

Hi! With me you will start speaking CORRECT Russian SOON! My first priority is to get you ready to communicate with Russian-speaking people, develop your spoken skills and vocabulary.

For 17 years I was working for a multilingual company: English, German, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive experience in teaching Russian. My students speak diverse first languages and belong to diverse cultures.

I set up and reach the real, necessary goals helping my students to integrate into completely unfamiliar language environment. I am an immigrant, I know what I'm talking about and I'm here to help you stop being deaf and dumb.
Also, my lessons will be very helpful for students studying Russian at colleges and universities.

1st Level - to set up the communication bridge with the Russian native speakers.
2nd Level - to let you understand what's going on around you and let people understand what is on your mind or what you need to say.
3rd Level - to develop your vocabulary, ...

Michel is an excellent teacher especially in getting you to pronounce Russian language correctly. He lays an excellent foundation. He has good teaching methods, he is patient and kind. .
Patrick
I purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.

Michael is very patient and will take his time to assure that you have a firm grasp on the Russian language, including pronunciation.

*****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 ...

"I have had the joy of learning Russian with Anna for more than three years. Through Anna's highly skilled teaching methods, motivation, and inspiration, I have moved from a complete beginner level to a level of advanced proficiency.

In addition to being exceptionally knowledgeable in the field of foreign languages and language teaching, Anna is extremely professional, compassionate, and patient. She is a teacher who sincerely cares about her students, and is determined to ensure their understanding of all material she introduces, including complex aspects of grammar and language usage. It is clear to see that she prepares every lesson with consideration and purpose, and dedicates a tremendous effort to making lessons interesting and fun.

In our lessons, Anna strongly emphasizes conversation and listening comprehension, as well as the thorough reading and analysis of demanding literary and scientific texts. She strives to create a familiarity with the Russian language which plays a fundamental role in achieving fluency. Anna's outstanding teaching methods and remarkable perseverance make seemingly impossible to understand grammar rules, as well as the structure and nuances of Russian easy to grasp and to apply to speech and writing.

It is a gift to be able to have a teacher like Anna. She is without question one of the most talented teachers I have ever met, and she has my highest recommendation to prospective students of Russian."

Learning from a native speaker like Maria is the best way I have found. Being able to receive answers to questions quickly with explanations of the culture along with the language is invaluable. She works at my pace and tailors lessons to my needs. I am finally learning to speak, read and converse in Russian . This is the only real way to learn."
