As a native Russian speaker, I focus on the basics of the Russian grammar and alphabet. Once the student knows and understands the basics, I move on to the intermediate and advanced parts of the language and structure. If the student's primary goal is effective communication, the lessons will primarily be focused on communication and speaking skills. I teach all levels of the Russian language and am really excited to teach students of any age!

Regina is a wonderful Russian teacher! She goes out of her way to prepare challenging but accessible lessons, and she is patient and encouraging. I am impressed with how seriously she takes her job, her skill as a teacher, and her connection with me as a student.

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.

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!

*****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 ...

I have taken six lessons with Roman thus far and have been impressed by his conversational approach, his diagnosis of my strengths and weaknesses, and the quality of his prepared materials. I was looking for help in reinvigorating my study of a language in which I hadn't taken courses in years, and I've found it. Roman is strongly recommended.

I help my students learn alphabet and start reading. It may be helpful if you are traveling to Russia and would like to be able to read street names. I introduce my students to Russian culture through movies, cartoons and nursery rhymes. Usually it is a very enjoyable experience. As a native Russian who lives in USA I understand and able to explain the cultural differences that are hard to pick up from reading books.

We are very thankful to our instructor. She makes sure the subject is understood and not memorized. One could see that she has passion for the class and it looks like that passion is contagious.
