Online Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and I have studied Russian since elementary school. I graduated from Chishinau university, where 40% of the courses are taught in Russian including Russian grammar and literature. I have taught private courses as a German teacher, to Russian speakers, and therefore I have experience explaining Russian grammar and conversation. I have a deep appreciation for Russia’s literary heritage and am constantly reading classic Russian texts.

I have experience teaching online Russian language to English students. My materials are adapted to English speakers and my beginner students are excited and able to engage in Russian small talk within 6-8 lessons. My lessons are efficient, well planned and productive.

I’ll teach you spelling and grammar rules, I’ll extend you vocabulary and we will always be practicing and reviewing previously learned material. I help encourage my students to study Russian. With me you will smoothly move from a beginner to more advanced.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Private instruction has always been a privileged sector and when you enter it you are entitled not only to the high quality of your courses and the 100 % guaranty to achieve your goals but also to really enjoying it.
2. Learning a new language is one of the best activities contributing to your cognitive development. You will see what perceiving the world through the concepts of different language will do to your brain. It's amazing!
3. One of the ways I prove my loyalty to my students is to always keep the same rate.

Don't forget to watch my "Russian FAQ" video.

С Мариной я занимаюсь больше года. За это время я многому научилась.

Занимаемся по сериалу Друзья. В течении недели смотрю по одной, две серии, потом перессказываю о чем там, потом готовлю пересказ на бумаге. На занятии мы с Мариной активно обсуждаем мой пересказ и мои ошибки, ещё успеваем обсудить повседневную лексику. На уроке узнаю много тонкостей в переводе английских слов. Слова не зубрю, но словарный запас пополняется с каждой неделей. Марина большое вам спасибо за уроки, мне очень нравиться учить английский именно с Вами. Вы несомненно талантливый учитель, ваш подход в обучении мне нравится.👍🤗
Irina
Спасибо, Мариночка, за интересный подход к обучению, когда уроки английского превращаются в увлекательную игру, а ученики становятся дружной весёлой командой! Ты-лучший преподаватель английского из всех, что знаю🌸🌸🌸! Когда отшлифуем этот язык , пойдём с тобой к следующему , ведь так ?

Translated Using Google Translate:

Thank you, Marinochka, for an interesting approach to learning, when English lessons turn into an exciting game, and students become a friendly, fun team! You are the best English teacher I know🌸🌸🌸! When we polish this language, let's go with you to the next, right? 😉

Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃

"Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my grandparents.

Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn."

I was looking for help in reinvigorating my study of a language in which I hadn't taken courses in years, and I've found it. Roman is strongly recommended."
