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

I have been a professor for 10 years, specializing in Psychology/Research Writing. I have worked both at the college level, as well as, the K-12 level. My goal is to inspire students in how to both speak and write correctly, while they are having fun.
Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I find in many cases students become indirectly inspired in many other areas, such as; Psychology, Criminal Justice, Fashion, Marketing and Theater Arts.
Having the ability to read/write can lead to success in many areas,

French Grammar Basics: When to Use Tu and Vous

Mixing up your tu's and vous? Let French tutor Carol Beth L. break it down for you... As modern-day English speakers, most of us are accustomed to using only one word for “you.” It doesn't matter if we are talking to one person, many people, old people, young people, teachers, doctors, children, or anyone else.
