Добро пожаловать!

Russian language spoken by over 250 million people. It is a beautiful language that grew and developed as loyal companion to the unique Russian culture. It's development was shaped with by some of the best writers and poets in the world, such as Pushkin and Tolstoy.

I believe that teaching a language without a well integrated cultural component is akin to crime, as doing so will deprive the student of opportunity of obtaining a gateway to understanding Russian culture... and perhaps a "mysterious Russian soul."

Unlike other subjects, where a curriculum is closely followed, Russian lessons are vibrant and are designed to promote fluency in conversation reading and writing. Poetry, videos and music are are integrated into the lesson plan - making learning efficient and fun.

Aleksander helped my son prepare for Regents Exams in Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig.), English and SAT. The results were spectacular. He graduated high school with 98% average in Math and English. He scored above 1500 on the SAT and was accepted into a school of his choice with a scholarship. Aleksander guided us through with college application process, helped fill out FAFSA, and helped my son select a major he is happy with. Great instructor! Great person!

I am half Russian and half German! My native language is Russian, and I speak with a Siberian accent! I can tell students a lot and teach them to speak Russian like it their native tongue. I teach pronunciation workshops to help them sound like Russians, speaking sessions to help them know details in it, and grammar to be fluent in their speech.

The best teacher! Thanks to him for the lessons! My level of English has become much better! I will continue to study with him!!!
Vladimir Litvinenko
First of all I would like to thank Alexander for all experinece and knoweldge I have gaind. All the time people ask me "Your pronunciation is perfect and you speak fluently, where did you get it?" and my reply always is the same "If only you knew my tecaher of English you would probably speak as well as me" So Alexander's approach of teaching is definitely thoughtful and results are not long in coming. I really recomed to all my acquitances to begin this amazing English lnguage trip with Alex. The level of his knowelede is extrelemly high without any doubt.

Alex showed me that great opportunities are possible to achieve. He helped me with TOEFL prep. and did a fantastic job! I scored 86 while my only hoping was <50.
At the same time, Mr. Obskov helped me improve my American accent skills and I’m truly thankful for this!
Fantastic teaching! Super nice communication! Great discipline!

Online Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!
Temy
Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!
Charles D.
Very happy with the first lesson. This is exactly what I need. Looking forward to the next classes.

"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."
