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 ...

Anna is a fantastic Russian tutor! She is very friendly, incredibly kind, and knows everything from the nuances of Russian grammar to cultural topics.
Tyler
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. It's abundantly clear that she has a plethora of experience with teaching the Russian language.
Kevin
Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work.

Private 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.

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.

"I have been taking lessons with Helen for a few months now--she is an exceptional teacher. She does a great job personalizing material, both focusing on my interests and honing in on the areas in which I struggle. Lessons are a blast because I always feel like I've learned something, and because Helen has a great attitude. I especially like her positivity and patience when I slip up. Lesson plans cater to various skill levels. I've been studying Russian for 10 years, and I feel like Helen quickly figured out where I am and how I can get to where I want to go. This has been my first experience with private, online tutoring; I really was nervous to try it out, but I am so glad that I did!"

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.
