About Roman

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

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. Learning a foreign language is a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. If you really want to speak a new language I guarantee that my method will work for you.
3. All materials are created by me and edited by a group of talented language teachers and linguists. They are free and very useful no matter where, when and how you study Russian or French.

*****My Students*****

For over 7 years of professional experience as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and i

mplemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

Roman helped me understand the grammar better by using repetition and real life applications of when to say what. The material is given to you by Roman in great detail with his modules and it also helped me expand my vocabulary a substantial amount thanks to his methods. He helped me understand Russian better. Definitely recommend !!!

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

About Zhao Yang

Hi! 你好!Привет!

My name is Evgeniya (Zhao Yang)!

I am multilingual and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL.

You have a genuine interest in learning Mandarin or Russian, you would love to explore the language, to learn more about the culture, people, history...

But you are struggling with learning Russian/ Mandarin Chinese on your own. You need a guide who will help you and step by step will go with you toward your goals, support you in your language learning journey. You are most likely looking for the right course/ program/ teacher for you or your kid and don't know what to choose, I know it's so overwhelming! Don't wonder around for too long, make a decision and go for your dream.

About me

I have five years of experience with one-on-one online teaching as well as teaching in a classroom setti

ng. I have taught Mandarin Chinese to students aged 6 -18 at a Chinese Language Specialty School in Moscow and to sophomore, junior students, adults (I had a student who was 78 years old learning Chinese), I also have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds within the business world (Tech companies, fashion industry, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Center and more). I prepare my students for each level of Chinese proficiency qualifications (YCT, HSK).

I am Russian and I teach Russian as well. I started teaching Russian 3 years ago, I absolutely enjoy the process of sharing my knowledge with students. Russian is such a beautiful language with a great history. I truly admire people who decided to learn Russian, I do my best to share my passion for the language with my clients.

I believe that when you learn a new language, you see the world through that language. Learning a language is not only about the language, it involves human communication, a
sharing of ideas, culture, travelling, history, arts, personal and professional development. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students or any other topic the learner interested in.

At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I always use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting.

I am happy that my passion for learning foreign languages became my profession. Teaching foreign languages for me is a Never-Ending Professional Development Journey. It’s a profession that allows me to be creative, work with a variety of different people, travel all over the world and inspire students not only academically but personally as well.

I'm a shy guy so when I went in for my first lesson I was really scared but my teacher was really kind and five minutes in I had completely forgotten that I was scared, and I learned so much. I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!

Great Mandarin Chinese tutor, 100% recommended! It was very easy to get started, flexible and you become an effective communicator in a short period of time! From day 1 I started learning stuff that I could use in real life, within months I am now having full conversations in Chinese, because I was learning the language I needed and topics I would normally talk about. Classes were so enjoyable and worth it!

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

Добро пожаловать!

Russian language spoken by over 250 million people. It is a beautiful language that grew and developed as loyal companion to the unique Russian culture. It's development was shaped with by some of the best writers and poets in the world, such as Pushkin and Tolstoy.

I believe that teaching a language without a well integrated cultural component is akin to crime, as doing so will deprive the student of opportunity of obtaining a gateway to understanding Russian culture... and perhaps a "mysterious Russian soul."

Unlike other subjects, where a curriculum is closely followed, Russian lessons are vibrant and are designed to promote fluency in conversation reading and writing. Poetry, videos and music are are integrated into the lesson plan - making learning efficient and fun.

Aleksander helped my son prepare for Regents Exams in Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig.), English and SAT. The results were spectacular. He graduated high school with 98% average in Math and English. He scored above 1500 on the SAT and was accepted into a school of his choice with a scholarship. Aleksander guided us through with college application process, helped fill out FAFSA, and helped my son select a major he is happy with. Great instructor! Great person!

Alex helped me with my College English/Writing and Accounting courses. His lessons were vigorous, but fun and very engaging. Thanks to him my grade went from C to A.

I was so happy with the progress that I asked him to tutor my niece in high school math. Again, he surpassed all expectations. She ended up having one of the highest grades in her class.

I wholeheartedly recommend him!

I know Russian it's count like one of the "hardest" language in the world
You started to scare?)
Technically , you're not born with a language .All of us could have ended up with Chinese as first language .
I'm not native Russian speaker.But i have graduated school and college in Russian.So i know all "hardness" of learning new languages special in Russian
Before 20 years old i wasn't interest in learning new languages at all.For me it was  unattainable dream.I just changed my mind and after one year i started to speak in English, Turkish and just
started to learn Arabic .And you can see how my technic working on me ;)
