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

Private Russian Teacher

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,

Online Russian Teacher

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

About Irina

I am a classically-trained and educated Cellist with deep experience playing with Symphony Orchestra’s, Chamber Orchestra’s, Ensemble’s, Quartets, and Solo. I began my musical education at the age of ten, have played for 21 years, and have fourteen years of formal musical education. I specialize in

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

Learn Russian in Los Angeles

About 200 million people speak Russian natively, making it the eighth most commonly spoken native language in the world. (It’s the sixth most commonly spoken when including non-native speakers).

The official language of the largest country in the world and one of the official languages of the United Nations, Russian is also the language of cosmonauts. Astronauts are required to learn Russian before boarding the Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station!

Russian is not only the language diplomats and space cadets, but it's also widely spoken around the world, with large populations of Russian speakers in Cyprus, Hungary, China, Mongolia, Poland, Finland, Israel, and of course the United States.

So, why not join the world, its leaders, and outer space in speaking the tongue of great art and timeless literature by signing up for Russian language classes in Los Angeles?

The Benefits of Taking Russian Lessons in Los Angeles

Apart from studying in Russia, you can't beat taking Russian language classes in Los Angeles. West Hollywood in Los Angeles County is home to the second largest concentration of native Russian speakers in the US. With strong family ties and the allure of Hollywood's big-screen opportunities, the community continues to grow.

This community of émigrés, hailing mostly from countries that were formerly part of the Soviet Union, places Southern Californians aspiring to learn the language inside a cultural center. West Hollywood hosts a Russian culture month each May, which features an arts festival to celebrate the history and language that create the rich cultural identity of Slavic peoples. The festival welcomes both native speakers and those new to the language and culture.

West Hollywood's Russian-speaking community invites everyone to join in by attending Russian film screenings, tasting Russian cuisine, enjoying performance arts, and viewing fine art.

In addition to Los Angeles's large Russian-speaking community, its diverse university system also offers plenty of opportunities to learn, speak, and immerse oneself in Russian language and culture. UCLA hosts one of only four Russian flagship programs in the United States, providing exceptional opportunities for students of all levels to learn Russian in Los Angeles.

Studying with a Russian Tutor in Los Angeles

With over 50 highly rated instructors to choose from, it's easy to find a Russian tutor in LA whose teaching style, methods, and personality you love. Our teachers are experienced instructors capable of organizing effective lessons and tailoring them to the needs and goals of their students.

One reviewer had this to say of highly-rated instructor, Daria D., "Studying Russian with Daria has been an incredible experience for me. I am fascinated by Russian language and culture, and Daria's lessons have provided me with deep insights into both."

Where to Take Russian Lessons in Los Angeles

From Long Beach to Santa Monica and from Valley Village to West Hollywood, you can hire a Russian tutor in Los Angeles County wherever is most convenient for you. If you're not keen on meeting up for lessons in person, consider hiring a Los Angeles tutor who teaches online, instead.

When deciding where and when to meet your new Russian tutor in Los Angeles, don't be afraid to get creative. Choose a Russian restaurant, like Robert's Russian Cuisine on La Brea Avenue, and ask your tutor to help you through the language and etiquette of ordering a meal.

When preparing for your Russian classes in Los Angeles, be sure to stock up on all the supplies you’ll need. Pop into Flax Pen and Paper to sift through many options for fresh notebooks, fancy pens, and highlighters for recording new vocabulary. Next, you can find inspiration and motivation at Kovcheg Russian Books, by selecting a few titles that catch your eye!

How to Practice Speaking Russian in Los Angeles

With its closely knit Russian community, Los Angeles provides plenty of opportunities for aspiring Russian speakers to practice their vocabulary, grammar, and expressions with both native speakers and other language enthusiasts.

In addition to the Russian cultural festival held in West Hollywood, you can also try out your newly acquired skills at one of many Russian groups available on Meetup, such as the Russian Conversation Group of LA, or the Los Angeles Russian American Club. As you can see, LA is the perfect place to grow your Russian language skills, so why not get started today?
