So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

I am a native Russian speaker. During the lesson I use books of russian authors that are really interesting and helpful. My lesson combines: grammar, reading and listening. In such way we are able to learn all aspects that will help the student to speak fluently and understand native speakers easily. I also provide exercises and give hometasks to practice the material we learned during the lesson. A little bit later, we will start to read and learn articles about culture and traditions as well. It is really interesting and will give a student a lot of useful knowledges. My classes are really interesting and they will help a student to reach his/her goals.

About Viktoriia

If you are interested in learning the Russian language, correcting your pronunciation or spelling, learning how to read, or improving your understanding then there’s no better way to do it than to learn from a native speaker.

I have great experience teaching Russian from the very beginning to a very advanced level including my own children who were born and raised in the USA. Now they are bilingual with equally good languages, English and Russian.

Why do most of us want to learn a language? Probably because we want to communicate with other people in it.

Language is often taught through a set of grammar rules and vocabulary lists you need to recite with a teacher.

How effective is this teaching? My answer is not very much. I’ve been learning English for 12 years, through my middle school, high school and college years. It became meaningful only when I actually started communicating.

Think about how you learned to communicate in your native language. We start speaking ...

"Kristina is extraordinary educator!!!
She succeeded in what the teachers before her couldn’t. I am 55. After some attempts to cope it with other tutors I applied to Kristina as the last person without any hope. But after 3 or 4 classes I found out I understood Russian speech, I heard it, could recognize some phrases, could repeat… I was in glee! It was incredible start of my long and fruitful cooperation with Kristina! Presently I’m able to talk simple daily topics, listen to some Russian songs, understand grammar a bit. Of course it’s not easy way expected. But I’m happy I’ve finally found my own well-treating, responsive, qualified teacher who could discover approach to me. I’m so proud of my success and so brilliant teacher!"
