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.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Private instruction has always been a privileged sector and when you enter it you are entitled not only to the high quality of your courses and the 100 % guaranty to achieve your goals but also to really enjoying it.
2. Learning a new language is one of the best activities contributing to your cognitive development. You will see what perceiving the world through the concepts of different language will do to your brain. It's amazing!
3. One of the ways I prove my loyalty to my students is to always keep the same rate.

I use Task-Based Language Teaching methods in my lessons. For example, a task could be interacting with Russian business partners, ordering food at cafes and restaurants, checking into a hotel, making a product presentation, communicating with a spouse’s family, applying for a job, enrolling into a Russian university, asking directions, reading Russian literature or news, etc. In other words, my classes are student-centered and designed in accordance with a student’s real-life needs. All activities (grammar, reading, speaking, listening, pronunciation skills) are used to reach a learner’s goal. I use a lot of authentic materials in my lessons: YouTube, social media, commercials, news, movies and various readings (including social science and fiction). I have fun, well-structured lessons and provide interesting and engaging discourse with each one of my students.

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.
