She was really very good but Irene could not understand her. Irene is from Greece and Olga is from somewhere else. Just not the right fit.

My kids have been taking lessons with Tatiana for the past 3 weeks. They love it! I was a bit worried because, in the past, they always rebelled against continuing Russian lessons with almost all the other teachers.
So far so good. Tatiana is incredibly patient and positive. Kids love their language sessions, and I love seeing the results. Thank you, Tatiana!

My daughter really loved her lesson! She was inspired to practice more!

Our 16 year old daughter had a wonderful lesson and is looking forward to many more!
Iris Moore
Diana is an excellent musician. She has studied under very fine masters in Russia . I have seen her in many concerts as a soloist, part of an ensemble and in an orchestra. Not only is she a fine musician but also a very good teacher. I highly recommend taking flute lessons from a very gifted artist.
Tanya
Diana is an excellent instructor! Patient, encouraging and super good at explaining. She took my 11 year old daughter from not being able to play a single note and not knowing how to read music to playing pieces and reading notes at top speed really fast! And my daughter always looks forward to her next lesson with Ms. Diana! She sends a detailed homework assignment after each lesson as well as a monthly progress report. My daughter loves her lessons and Ms. Diana takes great care to make practicing not just effective but fun! She has a great understanding of children and how to get them engaged.

"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!!"
