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.

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 ...

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 am very fortunate to have found Maria. I went through 3 other instructors, all claiming to have their own patented method of teaching piano, but all of them left me frustrated and without clear direction. Maria understands the necessary path. She enlightens and inspires me every week with the timeless beauty of piano. With her by my side, I believe I can realize my dream."
Ben
Maria is a wonderful teacher! She is kind, attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. I've made great progress already under her tutelage, and feel grateful that she is my teacher. I would recommend her for anyone trying to learn piano, even if you're starting from scratch like I did!
Marie
High quality teacher. She is really qualified to teach advanced students.

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
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.

"I have been taking lessons with Helen for a few months now--she is an exceptional teacher. She does a great job personalizing material, both focusing on my interests and honing in on the areas in which I struggle. Lessons are a blast because I always feel like I've learned something, and because Helen has a great attitude. I especially like her positivity and patience when I slip up. Lesson plans cater to various skill levels. I've been studying Russian for 10 years, and I feel like Helen quickly figured out where I am and how I can get to where I want to go. This has been my first experience with private, online tutoring; I really was nervous to try it out, but I am so glad that I did!"
