Private Russian Teacher

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Reading,
Writing,
Grammar,
Conversation
Language development,
Pronunciation,
Social Language Use.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.

About Aksana

PhD. in Russian Language and Literature, Immanuel Kant State University of Russia (Kaliningrad State University), Russia, 2002 Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Russian and Belarusian Languages and Literature (Diploma with honors), Belarusian State University, Belarus, 1995.

I am a native Russian tutor. Now I live in NYC and teach Russian as a foreign language in CUNY.

    I teach the Russian language from the very beginning - elementary, basic level - to higher levels.
  The most important goal of my classes is that you enjoy our meetings by keeping interest and feeling the progress.
  Individual approach to each student is the key point to success. We study the vocabulary, grammar, and situations related to the student's current activities. As a result all my students successfully use the learned skills for their professional or

private life.
  During my lessons, I'm trying to reach the best balance between speaking, listening, grammar, conversation and other aspects of the language.
  I can help you understand the system of the Russian language, so that you were not limited by phrases that you learn during the lesson, but could make your own sentences, paragraphs, express your thoughts in different ways.
  We will pay enough attention to grammar, pronunciation, reading and speaking.
  I will explain to you the way Russians talk in their everyday life because some Russian foundations and manners differ from American ones.
  As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum that fits your needs.
  I'll be happy to help you learn the Russian language. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
  Thank you for your interest - I look forward to seeing you in my classes!

Policy: All changes in the schedule (except emergencies) should be made 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise the lesson will be marked as missed.

Aksana made me feel at ease - gently guiding me through the material and kindly offering corrections when needed, helping you to feel comfortable taking risks which is necessary when learning something new. The worksheets Askana provided are helpful and she told me about a number of other good resources to use for practice between lessons. Seems like we are off to a good start!

Aksana is a terrific instructor! After only a few lessons, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. She can quickly gauge the level of each student and subsequently tailor her lessons to the student's level and goals. I believe that Aksana is one of the best Russian instructors that I have had since studying Russian in college over 30 years ago and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Russian for the first time or to improve their skills if they have studied Russian previously.

Aksana is such an amazing instructor. She is patient and more than willing to work with your crazy work/life schedule. She customizes each lesson plan and you set the pace.

About Karina

I am a certified teacher of English, Russian and French languages with 10 years of experience. During my university years, I had been living in the United Kingdom in 2004 and 2006. I have been teaching students from all over the world. During many years of teaching, I made up a lot of seminars, practical lessons, interactive exercises, slideshows with different tasks in order to help students start speaking fluently and promptly understand English and French-speaking people. I have got my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics in 2007 and started my teaching career in the same year. Since then teaching became not just my job but my passion. I am fond of learning and applying new techniques and approaches in teaching foreign languages to students of all ages and different levels. My primary goal is to make my tutorials interesting and effe

ctive in order to develop practical skills in speaking and understanding foreign languages that will last a lifetime. In August 2017 I became a CELTA certified teacher of English/ESL. I welcome new students!!!

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

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

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.

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.

I can help you start learning Russian or improve your overall skills depending on your level. I have an individual and flexible approach to each of my students and I adjust the program to their very needs and goals. All the textbooks and materials will be provided by me.

I have 13 years of teaching and working experience in an international community which improved my cultural awareness and appreciation of integrity among different cultures, backgrounds and religions. I was born and raised outside of the capital of Russia and educated there for 20 years. Recently I moved to DC area to pursue MBA degree.

I apply different teaching methods and techniques to different students to meet their individual goals and adapt to their learning abilities. I myself speak four (4) languages, therefore, I know exactly what challenges my students face in the learning process and how to anticipate them.

I'm very open, easy-going, friendly and flexible in terms of hours and the pay.

Anastasia is an extremely organized and hardworking individual who puts a lot of effort into her lessons. My Russian language skills have improved dramatically since she started teaching me a few months ago.

Anastasia has been great helping me learn Russian. While my grandparents are from Russia (USSR actually!) I never managed to learn Russian from them at home. I always wanted to read Russian literature in the original, but did not have enough Russian to do so. With Anastasia's help I am now discovering Pushkin and Tolstoy in the original! After only a few months working with Anastasia I am comfortable enough to read in Russian, watch Russian movies with subtitles, and sing along some very strange Russian pop music :)

I highly recommend Anastasia if you want to learn Russian and start communicating fast.

"Anna and I worked together for several years as I studied Russian. Her lessons are always clear, interactive, fun and helpful. She incorporates classic li
terature, 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!"
