Ahmet is a good teacher who explains the materials very well. He explains it easily and if you need the Russian translations, it wouldn't be a problem for Ahmet.
My lessons are interesting because I practice Grammar, Speaking, Listening and Writing skills. Since the lessons are always different, I do not have the time to get bored or distracted. Our lessons go so fast that I wonder "Ноw come!? Did I waste my time in vain?"
My skills get better with each lesson, and I dont even notice how. But I know that nothing is better than having lessons with a native speaker. I had a lot of lessons with Ukrainian teachers, but nobody was able to give me as much pleasure while learning English as Ahmet.
You don`t need to worry about your level, because even if you are a beginner, Ahmet will be able to help you since he has a good command of Russian language to explain materials.

Russian is my first language. I can teach you to communicate verbally, read, and write in Russian at an advanced level. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

About Diana

Welcome! I am glad to meet you. My name is Ms. Diana, and I will be your teacher. I'm looking forward to helping you on your path towards academic success!

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

Do you want to speak Russian? Are you interested in the Russian culture? Welcome to my lessons! I am a native Russian speaker with a degree in Linguistics from Tver State University, Russia. I live in Indiana and offer Russian lessons to everyone interested in learning the beautiful Russian language.

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

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.

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!!!

I had to improve my Russian skills for work and business reason. Just after a few sessions I felt already more confident with my language skills both verbally and in writing.

"Roman is an extraordinary teacher. I was already bilingual and was therefore surprised and delighted to find that Roman was fluent—or very close to it—in several difficult languages. His near native grasp of English allowed Roman to guide me easily through the difficult early days of my instruction in Russian. Then, once I was comfortable with the basics, Roman’s method of teaching expanded to reveal qualities that are often lacking in language instruction. He was enterprising in the design of his lessons, patient when I stumbled and innovative when particular strategies did not work. Best of all, Roman went above and beyond my expectations by spending a tremendous amount of time tailoring the course of study to my particular learning habits. Roman is quite simply the best language teacher I have ever had."
