Students will achieve their goals to speak Russian. You will be led step by step and that will go the easy way. Nothing is impossible so are the foreign languages. Make the first step and I'll do the rest.

About Sergey

As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books

Hello, my name is Anna, I’m a native Russian speaking person) I’ve been living in USA for 6 years, and fluently can speak English, that would help our learning process. To be honest with you I don’t hold a degree in Russian and I also might be not the best academically correct teacher, I don’t have an fabulous experience in teaching Russian and I don’t have a super smart teaching methods, but I do have a sense of humor and I know that our time of learning will be super productive and you will forget about time) I had a great experience of teaching how to communicate with Russian person, how to pronounce the words correctly, how to joke with Russians and the most importantly how to curse, just kidding, because I also can teach kids) Moreover, we will learn how to understand Russian abracadabra letters and how to read)
Russian language is beautiful and I feel lucky to be its representative

Excellent instructor!! Great ability to teach!
Aliceann W.
We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.
Victoria
I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

Maria focuses on foundation, which is the most important strategy for improving in a long term. Maria puts effort to make piano as fun and beautiful instead of hard training. She is also very flexible in lesson times and tries to accommodate students' interest and need. I am glad I found her as my teacher!

I throughly enjoy the lesson time spent with Maria as a beginner. She is an accomplished musician and transmits her passion for the piano to me as her student. She is kind and patient and totally focused on my comfort level and ensuring that I understand her approach to learning to play. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in starting with the basics and having the enthusiasm for learning that she has for teaching.

Maria has been a joy to work with. She is kind, compassionate and patient. She is an amazing teacher and my lessons have been transformative. Every time I leave a session with Maria I am excited, rejuvenated and my skills are most certainly elevated. She makes music fun. She is also thorough and comprehensive and teaches excellent fundamentals. I would strongly recommend her to anyone interested in learning piano.

She incorporates classic literature, films, music and pop culture into her lessons so the students are learning not just language, but also culture and history. Every lesson with Anna opened my eyes to something new. Many teachers only teach grammar, but Anna takes a holistic approach and helps students with pronunciation, high-frequency phrases, colloquial language, listening practice, and much more. I highly recommend her. Russian is a difficult language and Anna is the ideal teacher to help you tackle it!"
