Привет! Russian is my first language and it has a very special place in my heart. I love it for its emotional charge and incredible poetic expression.
After many years of helping my friends who study classical voice, I found new interesting and simpler ways to teach this language.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the same week, or their lesson time will be charged in full. For illnesses and family emergencies I will require a doctor's note or a short letter explaining the reason behind their absence.

Anna is a fantastic Russian tutor! She is very friendly, incredibly kind, and knows everything from the nuances of Russian grammar to cultural topics.
Tyler
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. It's abundantly clear that she has a plethora of experience with teaching the Russian language.
Kevin
Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work.

I enjoy teaching kids Russian language. I think, that children benefit from personalized private lessons much more, than from groups lessons given in schools, where kids have not only different level of grammar knowledge but also different level of understanding of the language.

My lessons are very interactive - we are not just reading and writing, but we play games, we solve puzzles... Of course, it is all in Russian :)

About Galyna

Hello! I teach piano and flute. I can prepare for competitions and exams, give knowledge of music theory, or teach music just for fun - for your, or your kid's enjoyment. My students performed in studio recitals, successfully passed Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations,

Ms. Galyna is very nice and patient in teaching, no matter the kid is a quick learner or a slow one. Her piano studio is a wonderful place that provides a good learning environment for students.
Julia
My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!

I selected Ekaterina because she was local and had a designated studio in which to conduct the lessons. When I spoke to her, she was concerned about maintaining social distancing due to the Coronovirus concerns and offered online as an alternative. I specifically chose her because I did not want online lessons so she then agreed to meet outside at a park bench where 6 feet distance could be maintained. However, some days later, I was contacted by her that she changed her mind about meeting due to her health concerns. There was not enough time for me to get a refund because the TakeLessons staff was unavailable to assist. Unless the staff corrects this, she will get paid a lesson credit for a lesson not conducted, and I will be out a paid credit I did not receive. I am very disappointed and I hope she updates her profile to reflect her online-only restriction.

"I've been studying Russian with Elena (Lena) for about three years. Previously, I had roughly the equivalent of one university year of Russian and hadn't enjoyed it as much due to the pace of the class among other things. However, I've stayed with Russian, as difficult as it has been for me, in large part due to Lena. She's extremely patient and competent, so I've gotten a lot out of the weekly and bi-weekly lessons. She also speaks good French, so it's been helpful, as the languages I know best are English and French. Спасибо, Лена !"

"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!!"
