Long Beach, CA
View Full Profile

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, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one 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

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem and I'm 24 years old. I'm a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach my first language to others.
I am exci
ted to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher.

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.

About Liudmila
I am a very experienced harpist, holding over 20 years of experience. I have performed in over 4,000 concerts and have had the privilege of performing as the Principal Harpist at St. Petersburg Opera Theatre and Mariinsky Theatre in Russia. I also hold a Master’s degree in Harp from the St. Petersburg Conservatory in Russia.

I am so glad to have Liudmila as my first Piano teacher.I never thought I would be taking Piano lessons at my age, but Liudmila is such a wonderful , patient teacher that she makes me feel very relaxed. She is very knowledgeable about music and takes great care to teach me at my pace and capability. I have already taken about 10 classes with her and am excited and looking forward to continue taking more lessons with her.

I enjoyed my first harp lesson with Liudmila so much! She is a very sweet lady, and a very patient, knowledgable, and professional teacher. She taught me the correct posture and hand positions at the first lesson. I was struggeling with the hand positions first, but she didn't mind to explain them to me over and over again. She also plaid some tunes to me, and I could tell that she is an awsome harpist. I am very glad that I can learn from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn from a professional harpist.

Good day, I can certainly help you with Russian language. I am a native speaker of Russian and have an MA degree in Linguistics and Philology. With my teaching experience and knowledge of the subject, I can certainly be of help. Please, contact me if interested. Thanks and hope to see you soon.

About Tatevik
I am a highly professional and results-driven ESL teacher with experience in the development and delivery of language programs to a wide variety of clients encompassing diverse backgrounds, beginners to advanced, from students and migrants to business professionals. Moreover, I volunteered for LAVC back in 2008-9 at the Learning Center teaching Spanish to non-Spanish speakers and students with disabilities. As a highly compassionate and approachable teaching professional, with over 10 years of hands-on teaching experience, I am confident in my ability to become a valuable member of your teaching staff. My qualifications include two M.A. degrees, one in Linguistics from CSUN and another in Linguistics and Intercultural Communication from Saint-Petersburg State University. Currently, I am in the program for TESL/TESOL certificate at CSUN. M
y professional experience includes two years as an English teacher in Armenia and Russia and almost three years as an ESL instructor here in the US. Research and formal education in intercultural communication and negotiations gave an amazing opportunity to explore the diversity of the world and apply the gained knowledge as an ESL teacher. As an instructor at Kaplan Westwood, I oversaw a period where the school achieved the best student review rates in the area and was commended for my performance. This role demanded the regular creation of learning materials, the teaching of lessons, workshops and intensive courses, the preparation of progress reports. One of the effective ways I assist ESL students is by developing and presenting comprehensible and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate leaning and fit all learning styles. I also incorporate variety of resources like audio, visual, and video.

As a native Russian speaker, I could help you to improve your communicational skills, help you to learn special vocabulary, idioms etc. We'll mostly use communicative methods during our lessons and if needed we'll learn or review different grammar topics.

About Daria
What makes me a better option in comparison to native speakers? I'm specializing in teaching French as a foreign language. I also learned French (English) as a foreign language, so I know and understand all the difficulties you may meet during your studying process. Due to my understanding of all that, I can adopt better the methods of our work and my explanation.
What I love the most about my work? It's seeing my students' success and progress. For that aim, I'm always attentive to my students' needs and abilities to learn a subject. I try to find the best way to their understanding according to individual characteristics.

Since my childhood, I knew that languages are my passion. That's why I graduated from the pedagogical university back in Ukraine (my native country) at the faculty of foreign languages and also studied at the un
iversity in Switzerland. I went abroad to improve my French and English as well as to learn psychology and sociology. I had an opportunity to live in a French-speaking country, to have everyday language practice, and to learn how to live on your own.

Hi and welcome to my profile!
If you are considering to learn Russian, I must say, you are a brave and adventurous person. It is a rather complicated language and you might have one of few purposes which will define the best method there to teach you:
1. If you plan to travel to St. Petersburg or Moscow, and need to pick up conversational Russian, we can certainly do that in needed period of time. We can practice dialogues, train comprehension skills, even work on your accent, if you wish!
2. If you have a business in Russia or any post-soviet countries and need Russian for negotiations, document translation purposes, simply for comprehension, we can build up the needed vocabulary and you are good to go!
3. If you are an intermediate student, and need to freshen up your Russian, maybe learn some specific grammar or industry related vocabulary, or just become more confident in speaking – we can do that too – I always come up with new ideas to talk about, so there will be no time to

lary, or just become more confident in speaking – we can do that too – I always come up with new ideas to talk about, so there will be no time to get bored:-) Keeping both of us interested – you in learning and me in teaching is one of my goals.
4. If you are new to US, and need to improve your English for work or studies, we can work on grammar at your level, expand your vocabulary and work on conversational skills. I'm taking beginner to intermediate students. Step by step assistance with learning English is required when you are a beginner. From my experience of learning a foreign language, grammar of the language is usually best explained by a non-native speaker, who went through all the steps himself are and knows all the obstacles a learner can meet on the way of acquiring a new language.
5. As I'm learning French at the moment, and you are either French who wants to learn Russian, or you are just learning French – I have some suggestions and discounts to offer.
