I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. She explained grammatical concepts in a way that was easy to understand and her use of gestures with certain words really helped me remember vocabulary words and pronunciation. Anna also provided numerous resources for studying Russian outside of lessons and had wonderful recommendations for Russian YouTube videos. Thank you Anna!
Jorge
Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town
Nihal
I had Anna as my Russian tutor at UCLA for just over a year, and visited her session for an hour every week. She is incredibly friendly and personable, and goes above and beyond to support her students. During tuition, she would help us both with keeping up with the course content and with exploring the language outside of it. Learning Russian can be daunting for students who have no cultural or linguistic background in it, but Anna's demeanor and approach helped me a lot with developing confidence and building on my strengths. Meeting weekly with Anna is one of the things that I will truly miss once out of the Russian department.

Hi! With me you will start speaking CORRECT Russian SOON! My first priority is to get you ready to communicate with Russian-speaking people, develop your spoken skills and vocabulary.

For 17 years I was working for a multilingual company: English, German, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive experience in teaching Russian. My students speak diverse first languages and belong to diverse cultures.

Michel is an excellent teacher especially in getting you to pronounce Russian language correctly. He lays an excellent foundation. He has good teaching methods, he is patient and kind. .
Patrick
I purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.

Michael is very patient and will take his time to assure that you have a firm grasp on the Russian language, including pronunciation.

Interactive lessons to help you speak with more confidence. A blend of culture and language to integrate the learning within the context.

If you are in New York we can visit Russian stores and events to have a more immersive experience. If you are interested in music we will add this as our subject to learn the language. If literature is your passion we can work on small stories or larger works of literature and discuss particular use of words and expressions.

The classes are tailored to your needs. Please tell me why you are learning the language in your introduction.
