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've been teaching Spanish for five years and my students have gone on to speaking and writing. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand the language and as time goes on you'll be able to speak and write it; your grades will go up. I specialize in pronunciation and writing, typically use Spanish Now books, and have the following tools available for your lessons:cd's,videos and music. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

About Simona

I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English. That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread. I will send you links, we will read together,

Very good
October 4, 2019

Next week, I am leaving for Italy for three weeks. Although I am still not fluent in Italian, my lessons from Simona have greatly improved both my competence and my confidence in using the language. Simona is a wonderful teacher, with wonderful tact as well as a thorough knowledge of English as well as Italian.

I strongly recommend her to anyone near the early intermediate level of Italian.

Simona did a great job with my first lesson. She got me speaking Italian right away, and that is very helpful. The 45-minute lesson was fun and also challenging. I recommend her highly,

"I am writing again because my review does not show the picture I attached. The picture shows a message I sent to my husband in Korean. That was a sweet communication between husband and wife. I'm thrilled that I can communicate now with nuance and feeling. Thank you so much for being a wonderful teacher!!"

"Lessons with Wolfgang S. are always a pleasure. He is highly professional, friendly, and tailored all my lessons exactly to fit my needs and interests. He quickly pinpoints any areas that need help, and offers gentle corrections and suggestions to improve. His teaching methods are always interesting, varied, and fun. I learned a lot not only about grammar and vocabulary, but about German culture, and nuances and history of the language that can only be learned from a native speaker with his teaching experience. His explanations to questions are clear and thorough, and he made sure I understood before moving on. He adjusted the pace to my skills and needs without any pressure. I have definitely improved in all areas since taking lessons with him."

I was impressed at how well he explained Korean grammar--his explanation of particles was the best I've ever received from any tutor or teacher.
