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.
Pierre
I had Anna as my Russian tutor this year at UCLA. She is very friendly and she knows how to present topics in an interesting way. I enjoyed the sessions with her because there was always a time to converse a bit in Russian on various topics that we chose, which helped me to practice my oral skills. Anna always corrected my mistakes in a very kindly way. She also helped me to expand a lot my vocabulary in Russian and to understand better Russian grammar. I truly recommend Anna's lessons!

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.

Q.: What if I have to ...

Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.
Tyler
I have felt drawn to the Russian language and culture for many years and had dabbled with learning the language the past year. I really wanted to take my learning process to the next level and really needed that in-person tutoring. Maria has exceeded my expectations. She is patient, beyond knowledgable, Warm-hearted, and radiates a high vibration. She truly teaches the language and culture from the heart. My Russian skills are improving rapidly under Maria's tutorship. When you take lessons from Maria you won't just be her student, you'll be her friend.
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.

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.

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

"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."

"Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended.
