Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak Russian? The recipe is here. I am a highly qualified Russian language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience. I have developed several teaching methods, which I use during my classes. Together we will establish clear objectives for our lessons and will work on your grammar proficiency, listening and speaking skills, and accent neutrality.

Spoke more Russian during our first lesson than I have in a conversation! Anna is professional and dedicated. Looking forward to the rest of our lessons.

I have been taking private lessons with Anna weekly for one year. She has taught me Russian from a complete beginner level. I've taken a number of language classes in the past (for other languages) and it's clear that Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is clear and gives excellent explanations, and is well-prepared for each class. She's also able to give requested ad-hoc lessons whenever I have specific questions, even without preparation. I would highly recommend Anna as a Russian teacher, whether you're in-person or online. I do both types of lessons with her and she is highly effective through both mediums. Last but not least, she's a great pleasure to be around, as a person!

Lessons with Anna were excellent. She has the ability to bridge the language gap AND the cultural gap rendering her lessons relevant and invaluable. Anna is a complete joy to work with and I look forward to continuing my lessons with her at some point in the future.

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. I always expect more from my students because I have observed and documented all general traits and phases of language development during my classes and yes, you can always do better than you think you can.
2. My classes go beyond standard delivery of grammar and vocabulary. I bring my students to understanding of how a particular language works as a communication tool and how it can be enhanced.
3. Progress, feeling of accomplishment and remarkable results are just as important and desirable for me as for you therefore I do my best as a teacher for helping you to do your best as a student which should not be a problem if you have made the decision: "I will be proficient in this language!"

I taught Russian within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and implemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high ...

Roman is a wonderful French teacher. I am an absolute beginner with minimal understanding of the French language. During each lesson, Roman is quickly able to identify my weaknesses and hone in on how to improve them. He also follows up with homework and materials after each class that is customized to my level. In just 7 or 8 hours of lessons, I feel comfortable putting basic sentences together and have grown immensely in understanding others speak Francaise. Thank you Roman!

There three major reasons why I am so happy with the classes:
1. Every session Roman manages to make me work really hard without any stress or pressure.
2. I only pay for classes but get much more: class supporting materials, various activities that are always very fun, homework, work sheets, grammar presentation etc.
3. I spent four years in school leaning French but could never speak it. After my third class with Roman I was already interacting with him using the language!
