I’m a native, Russian speaking teacher. I’m fluent in both English and Russian. I take pride in teaching the Russian language to children and adults alike. It’s a beautiful language, that is challenging but rewarding to learn.

About Nadia
- MBA candidate with over 6 years of work experience in teaching.
- BS in Finance

I began tutoring when I was a freshman in high school. I went through the international baccalaureate program in high school that included honor and AP classes. I have the knowledge and ability to tutor; biology, mathematics (algebra, geometry, pre-algebra, algebra II, pre-calculus, calculus, business calculus) , English, Russian, piano, computer knowledge, and history.

Other things that I teach or can help improve in:
Meditation (hypnotherapy, deep relaxation, breathing techniques)
Life Coaching (help organizing your schedule, reaching a goal, improving yourself)
Mixology (I have experience working as a bartender and managing a bar so I can teach and improve your drink mixing skills)
Exercise (I have numerous students who I help exercise on
ce a week or even on a daily basis)
Computer knowledge (excel, word, access, powerpoint, and quickbooks, as well as website design: online and html)

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson starts with me finding out what the student knows and what he needs help with. I ask a few questions to help me direct the lesson so the student can gain the most knowledge. I always make sure that the student has goals and that they know what steps need to be taken to reach those goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own transportation.

Nadia is the best tutor I have ever met with. Before I met with her I was struggling a lot and I was very nervous. After our first meeting I felt as if I had learned a lot and I was no longer confused. She is very helpful, patient, and very kind.

As a native Russian speaker, I focus on the basics of the Russian grammar and alphabet. Once the student knows and understands the basics, I move on to the intermediate and advanced parts of the language and structure. If the student's primary goal is effective communication, the lessons will primarily be focused on communication and speaking skills. I teach all levels of the Russian language and am really excited to teach students of any age!

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating, she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teachin
g experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***
If the system shows that your location is out of my travel area, please contact me by messaging through TakeLessons! Also feel free to inquire for discounts for siblings!

Russian teacher with 20+ years experience teaching and tutoring Russian. The goal is for students to be able to actively use the language and not be afraid to experiment. The focus is on meaningful conversation and reading authentic texts. Classes are creative, fun and held to 95% in the target language.

About Annika
My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I first came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing.

A true global nomad, I have lived in Germany, the U.S., Mexico and Russia and have traveled extensively. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French and Russian, I have been instructing students since 1989 in various countries of a variety of ages in a multitude of informal and formal settings.

In 1990, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1995, I completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education/Teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school
setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools, and the government.

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.

Nataliia makes learning Russian fun and easy! She is very understanding, explains things clearly, and takes time to make sure you get it. She uses a very nice online textbook that also makes it easy to practice/ keep up while outside of the "classroom". Would highly recommend Nataliia if you're looking for a Russian tutor!

If I had been lucky enough to have a teacher this great for Spanish, I never would have struggled throughout ALL of high school. I decided to try and learn Ukraine for a good friend of mine who's home is there. Nataliia has been so great. She has her lessons structured in a great way so that you basically build a strong foundation before moving on to the frame and drywall and decorations. She's always on time for our lessons and has made accommodations for me when I had to reschedule as well. You'll be extremely pleased with what you take away from every week from your time with her. Would totally recommend Nataliia to anyone wanting to learn one of the languages she teaches! Seriously, an awesome instructor. Thank You!!

This vibrant young lady was just simply a blessing: knowledgeable, dynamic and simply a pleasure to be around and in-take information from. My child was simply taken by her and was, as it seemed and looked to me, craving every following visit from her. She was able to commence, see through and complete the entire task I set in front of her-for my child to be ready for the next stage in her education. My son is going to be in need of similar educational assistance soon-I have already discussed his lessons with Polina and will definitely call upon her once the concrete dates arise!
I strongly recommend this highly gifted, professional and serious individual to anyone looking for a tutor, in more subjects then one, that can captivate and deliver results, not just talk!

My name is Artem. I am a New Jersey certified ESL and Russian instructor. I teach ESL and Russian as foreign languages. I am a well-presented, articulate, and conscientious professional who is committed to excellence. Currently, I teach both online and also at a university in the state of New Jersey.

I am a graduate from Pyatigorsk State Linguistic university. My major is linguistics/teaching foreign languages and cultures.

About Artem
My name is Artem K. I was born and raised in Russia. I am now living in the States and doing what I love to do - teaching. According to Confucius, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Now as I have been teaching for almost 10 years, I am certain that I most certainly will not have to work a single day in my life. I will simply be enjoying the process of educating my students and sharing my culture with them.

I've taken lessons with Artem online, via Skype. His lessons are always informative and fun which insures progression in the language. At first it seemed like a lot of work, but I was amazed how I could speak after just a few sessions with him. Some of the activities included acting out real life situations, listening activities, oral presentations and videos.
I highly recommend anyone looking to learn Russian to take classes with Artem.
