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.

Hi there, I'm Michael!
I have been working in a multilingual environment for 17 years: English, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive practical experience in introducing my colleagues to the Russian language. They remember words and whole phrases with pleasure, then we practice them in everyday work. I do the same, trying to join their languages. And you know, it works, especially with the Spanish!

I am not saying you will master the language as well as the Russians speak it.
Instead, I will set real, necessary goals for myself and for you to help you integrate into a completely unfamiliar environment. I am an immigrant, I know what I'm talking about and I'm here to help you stop being deaf and dumb.

1st Level - to set up the communication bridge with the Russian native speakers.
2nd Level - to let you understand what's going on around you and let people understand what is on your mind or what you need to say.
3rd Level - to develop your vocabulary, phraseology, formulation of ...

Michael is a very personable and knowledgeable Russian language teacher. I am a native English speaker who does not speak Russian and he is helping me on a personal project that involves translating Russian poetry. He is very patient and enthusiastic about explaining the pronunciation and meaning of Russian words. Likewise, he puts great thought and preparation into our lessons and I feel like I am making steady progress. Would definitely recommend!

Hayden:
Michael patiently works with me on pronunciation in his own way. I used to learn pronunciation based on positions my mouth and tongue should be in. The result was bad. Now everything is different, lots of easier and better. Thanks a lot!
Doris
I study Russian at university. Working with Michael helps me better understand what we are taught in lectures. He can explain the sense of Russian words to make it easier to remember and use them. It speeds up my learning process and I always pass my tests perfectly.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Private instruction has always been a privileged sector and when you enter it you are entitled not only to the high quality of your courses and the 100 % guaranty to achieve your goals but also to really enjoying it.
2. Learning a new language is one of the best activities contributing to your cognitive development. You will see what perceiving the world through the concepts of different language will do to your brain. It's amazing!
3. One of the ways I prove my loyalty to my students is to always keep the same rate.

"She establishes a platform of ease initially to make students comfortable to learn the language and always uses a practical situation of daily livelihood to express in that language. Rather than dominating the stance she conveniently allows her students to express themselves with affirmation and confidence. When struggling she is never frustrated and does not hesitate to go through what has been taught prior as basic steps to affluence in the learning process. Avoiding confusion and uncertainty is the key to learning a language and she is well crafted in avoiding these obstacles. Personally I feel greatly fortunate and studying under her has me assured that someday I will definitely be as fluent as a native speaker."

"I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months with this great Russian teacher. I did have some basic knowledge of Russian at the time. My teacher, Alexandra, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to this area, which was helpful..The most productive part of the the lessons were the times spent on conversing back and forth.

Having lessons on-line does take some self discipline, especially if you are working full time. However, it does encourage regular review of Russian so that you are ready for the next lesson. Alexandra is a GREAT teacher!!"

"Anna is a truly fantastic teacher who clearly loves what she does. Her enthusiasm and professionalism always inspire me as a student. I have had the pleasure of learning Russian with Anna for over a year now and can attest to the positive effect her lessons have had on my Russian proficiency. She always answers every question I have clearly and efficiently and provides helpful examples that reinforce the material we covered. During our discussions, Anna also explains elements of Russian culture and traditions which any serious student of Russian should know. Anna has helped me improve my conversational Russian, understanding of idioms and jargon, as well as professional and academic writing.

Anna shines as an outstanding teacher of Russian. She is engaging, very interesting to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in improving their Russian proficiency should work with Anna!"
