My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!
Tia
Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃
Рада быть в вашей команде 😀

Maryna is an outstanding and talented professional, with an extraordinary ability for teaching and communicating with her pupils. She owns a vast culture -apart from being a consummated polyglot -which allows her to talk and explain all kind of subjects and to be easily understood by her pupils. I have been studying Russian with her, and I must admit that my level improved significantly since I met her. I highly recommend her to all those who wish to learn or improve their English or Russian. You will not regret it!
Mark
I have had numerous skype video Russian lessons from Maryna she tries to teach people a language the way they might naturally learn one as a native speaker , via conversation intersperesed with discussion of grammar rules when appropriate. I Also like her WhatsApp group which combines native Russian speakers learning English with English ( an interesting variety including native and. Non-native speakers from various spots on the globe) speakers learning Russian so that all can learn from each other. Maryna has a lot of experience learning various languages and teaching and this knowledge of the language learning process manifests itself in her teaching style.

"Mr. Chau was very patient and kind, especially in teaching the word pronunciations that take practice for new learners. He was able to tailor his lessons to my goals of learning basic conversational skills for an upcoming trip. I feel like I can greet people, navigate, and order in restaurants. I highly recommend."

"I have been learning Russian from Prof. Aksana for the last 6 months or so. Aksana is a truly gifted teacher and has absolute mastery over the language. She really tailors the lectures around your need as a student. She is super rigorous in her teaching methods and is really focused on letting you - the student - grow into the language. She constantly reinforces various concepts with historically accurate stories behind the words, events that triggered changes to the language etc. This truly adds another dimension to her teaching. She is super invested in her students and really strives to make sure that you understood the various nuances in Russian grammar.

I'm truly lucky to have found such a great teacher to serve as my guide in my exploration of the Russian language."
