Hello there!

I am looking forward to meeting with you soon for our first Russian Lesson!

But, first, I would like to introduce myself.

My name is Natalie.

I am from Ukraine. However, my native language is Russian. I have been living in the United States for 13 years now. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and I love to practice Positive Psychology that I learned while in school that helps me to stay positive and proactive.
I have been teaching Russian online and in person for 12 years; I really enjoy it. I love teaching my native language since it allows me to keep it alive while living in the US. Also, I love teaching because the process of sharing knowledge allows me to connect with people. I am very enthusiastic and positive; thus you will never feel bored in my class. I can introduce you to beautiful Russian poems and literature and other interesting subjects that might be your interest.

I look forward to meeting you and help you to learn Russian!

Practice your Russian conversation skills like you have never done it before - by receiving a tarot card reading by me on a topic of your choice at the beginning of each class and discussing your weekly tarot reading with me as I give you intuitive feedback and practical tools to thrive in your life. Each week you get to pick a topic in your life you want to concentrate on - love/relationships, career, education, family, health, life path, life choices, or just general weekly goals and life lessons that you would like intuitive advice on as we discuss them together. You will come out of each class with confidence not only in your Russian speaking skills, but also in the blessings and abundance of your life!

***Frequency of lessons: I recommend one lesson every two to every three weeks depending on your preference.***
***If you are opposed to tarot/psychic/astrology on religious or other grounds, this may not be the right lesson format for you,***

I Just want to thank Daria one more time to take ample time to offer me a tarot reading. As most of us know that, the answer that we seek, we already have the innate ability to get it, for part of us already knows the right answer.
I am grateful to Daria because she talked with me throughout the whole process with such great care and got me to the root of my situation.

It was a positive vibrant and productive session.
I wish her a very happy and healthy spiritual journey! 🙏
Barbora S.
Daria read tarot cards for me the other day as I've asked her a question whether me applying in a new career field was a good idea? I've finished college in 2018 and couldn't find employment for over a year, then I finished a qualification course for teacher assistants and soon after I was given my first stable employment (been freelancing before). Full of optimism but with a grain of doubt I asked the stars/cards/higher power whether me choosing this career was a good move. Daria was able to confirm my own observations plus she added wise words of her own.

The reading doesn't give you a clear yes/no answer but if you've done a fair bit of introspection beforehand, the cards' advice may calm you down or offer you a new perspective you haven't considered before.
Kate K.
Daria gave me an online tarot reading about a month ago, and I came away with an experience that was enlightening and empowering. What I found unique about her approach as a psychic is that she combined her skilled intuition with practical advice that I could actually use to improve my life and find a measure of calm. She begins her sessions either with a specific question her client has in mind (whether it's related to relationships, family, career, aspirations, spiritual life, etc.), and if you do not come to her with a specific question, she is more than willing to do a general reading for you. (In my case, I sought advice related to my anxiety issues and their impact on my relationship with my fiancé, and over the past several weeks, things have really improved! So thank you!) If you are looking for someone who can help you see your circumstances more clearly and put you in touch with a spiritual sensibility, then Daria is someone to go see. She is not one of those charlatan psychics who will charge you excessively and then cloud your mind with bizarre, hazy predictions. She's an open-minded person and a great listener, and she's there to give you the tools to find joy and meaning.

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.

Gini D.
I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her.
Zachary E.
Maria is an excellent teacher for adults. I feel like there is the proper emphasis on building fundamentals while also focusing on what I enjoy about the piano (film scores). Maria is a kind and patient teacher who is challenging and still comforting for my beginner level. I would highly recommend her for any adult looking for lessons.

"I can't recommend Helen enough! I studied Russian in high school and college, but it has been several years since I have studied it intensely. Helen quickly sized up my abilities and focused in on where I was lacking. We have been working together for several months now, and her class is the highlight of my week. Her positivity is infectious, and she continues to challenge me as an intermediate/advanced student!"
