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!!!

We have been with Tatiana for past 3 years and she teaches my both kids. She is very knowledgeable , flexible and very interested to teach kids. I would recommend her highly to any one interested in learning violin.
Tommy
Tatiana is an excellent instructor and I am a 68 yr old violin hobbyist who is trying to learn classical music and folk music to eventually become a part time teacher myself. She is very patient and pleasant and I am a former teacher myself in grades 5 - 9. I believe she would be good for any age(s) ! She is great with technique and knowing what the student wants to accomplish and is interested in with their musical interests She is just a very pleasant person to know and get guidance musically from! I recommend her highly!

Anyone looking to learn a new language would be well served by taking a lesson with Victoria. She goes out of her way to make the environment comfortable while also being extremely professional and good-humored. Not only that, after three lessons I am seeing a lot of measurable progress in my understanding of Russian language and culture. Again, I can’t recommend Victoria enough!

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

"Polina is really patent, helpful and has a great approach to students as a teacher. She has a great view on learning and the material used was well blended and easy to understand.
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.
I highly recommend her as your Russian teacher as she is one of a kind with unique abilities to get you up to speed in no time."

"Aksana is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with me when I do not understand something but she will work with me until I am able to grasp the concept. I am currently taking Russian classes at a University but Aksana has been the most valuable asset when it comes to being able to learn the language properly. She is able to clearly explain the rules of the language and it is obvious she is very knowledgeable pertaining to all subjects in Russian. Without Aksana I would not feel as comfortable with my ability to learn the language. Our weekly meetings have helped me to not only speak but understand the language and culture more. I have been with her for about 4 months but look forward to continuing my lessons throughout my college career! She not only helps me during our lessons but also provides me with many other resources to continue my studies. I am very thankful for all Aksana has done and continues to do for me! By far the best Russian teacher I have had."

"I had Anna as my Russian tutor this year at UCLA. She is very friendly and she knows how to present topics in an interesting way. I enjoyed the sessions with her because there was always a time to converse a bit in Russian on various topics that we chose, which helped me to practice my oral skills. Anna always corrected my mistakes in a very kindly way. She also helped me to expand a lot my vocabulary in Russian and to understand better Russian grammar. I truly recommend Anna's lessons!"

"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."
