Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Private Russian Teacher

Russian teacher with 20+ years experience teaching and tutoring Russian. The goal is for students to be able to actively use the language and not be afraid to experiment. The focus is on meaningful conversation and reading authentic texts. Classes are creative, fun and held to 95% in the target language.

About Annika

My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I first came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing.

A true global nomad, I have lived in Germany, the U.S., Mexico and Russia and have traveled extensively. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French and Russian, I have been instructing students since 1989 in various countries of a variety of ages in a multitude of informal and formal settings.

In 1990, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1995, I completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education/Teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school

setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools, and the government.

Annika is a native German who is totally bilingual (English) and can explain complex concepts well in either language. The instruction approach is fast paced but understandable. So far, an excellent experience.

I'm attempting the impossible - learning a new language! Annika makes the impossible feel possible. She is a really great teacher, has excellent suggestions for how to move forward. I like the text we work from, too. I highly recommend learning a new language from Annika!

Olga is bright, cheerful, and very pleasant. She is obviously well experienced in teaching Russian to complete novices! Her courses are well thought out. She is alwats very well prepared. Her presentation is original and exciting. She uses lots of interesting props. I think these may have been based on her experience of teaching children but are very well adapted for adults. She is clearly proud of her Russian heritage and culture, and in addition to the practical way wshe teaches the languagem brings to her students a deep understanding and appreciation of life of ordinary people in modern Russia which paints a much more nauanced pictiure from what we get from our newspapers and TV.
I recommend her without hesitation,

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

Private Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and I have studied Russian since elementary school. I graduated from Chishinau university, where 40% of the courses are taught in Russian including Russian grammar and literature. I have taught private courses as a German teacher, to Russian speakers, and therefore I have experience explaining Russian grammar and conversation. I have a deep appreciation for Russia’s literary heritage and am constantly reading classic Russian texts.

I have experience teaching online Russian language to English students. My materials are adapted to English speakers and my beginner students are excited and able to engage in Russian small talk within 6-8 lessons. My lessons are efficient, well planned and productive.

I’ll teach you spelling and grammar rules, I’ll extend you vocabulary and we will always be practicing and reviewing previously learned material. I help encourage my students to study Russian. With me you will smoothly move from a beginner to more advanced.

About Valentina

• Russian native speaker
• Professional proficiency in English and German
• Familiar with Romanian and Turkish language
• Experienced instructor
• Able to plan and organize a classroom curriculum
• Able to communicate and coordinate with a wide range of individuals

Hello, my name is Valentina. I'm a Russian and German teacher.

German

I specialize in teaching German at the High School level. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in German and spent a year working and studying in Munich, Germany. I then found work in a private school and instructed over one hundred students. I have since continued tutoring individually specializing with online lessons.

My goal is to improve my students’ language skill through conversation and I push my students to speak German from the first lesson. I believe this helps students gain fluency an

d lose their fear of making mistakes while speaking. No one can be perfect in a month but the student needs to be comfortable enough with grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation so that they can communicate in German and improve through conversation and dialog.

My youngest students were 6 years old and I have also taught older students. I enjoy working with children and am fascinated by how quickly young students can learn and grasp languages. Especially when learning is incorporated in a game where a student can passively learn to use new vocabulary as a tool to win a game among others. I am very grateful for all my students and the wide variety of experiences that I have had interacting with them.

Russian

I am an experienced language teacher. My experience is teaching German as a second or third language to Russian and Romanian speakers, but since I am a native Russian speaker I can use what I have learned teaching German to teach Russian.

My teaching philosophy is to learn through practice. Everyone makes mistakes and part of learning a new language is overcoming the fear of making mistakes and being willing to work through errors to convey an idea or thought. People learn a language best when they use it as a tool to achieve a goal.

I enjoy working with children but also find it rewarding to work with motivated adults. I am looking forward to working with you.

Private Russian Teacher

This is my first language, and I can help you learn it. We will carry on conversations, or I can help translate anything for you.

About Alejandro

In 2018 I moved to the Peterborough, NH area and am offering private piano lessons here. For most of my professional career I have been creating music and sound for educational computer games and toys for major companies. Prior to my move, I taught private piano lessons to children and adults in the Buffalo, NY area for eight years. Some of my students have gone on to win awards and continue in a musical career. We will always be preparing for successful performances of selections from classic to modern repertoire.

My approach is student focused. I adapt the curriculum to the needs of each student. I maximize the student's strengths and interests to inspire each student to fulfill their unique potential.

Lessons will include:
1. proper body and hand posture,
2. exercises and scales,
3. at least three pieces from the literature

,
4. analysis and historical context for each piece,
5. development of techniques and artistic expression,
6. music theory and history,
7. preparation for performance and, if appropriate, competitions.

Benefits of studying music:
Enjoyment of social and cultural gatherings
Appreciation of art, history, and culture
Development of good study habits
Strengthening of math and language skills
Emotional and spiritual fulfillment.

More about me:
As a contractor and as an employee, I have written music and did sound design for Rosetta Stone, Fisher-Price, Rochester Science Museum, Fujitsu, Broderbund Software, and others. I have taught music subjects in colleges and universities. I continue to pursue projects for media and live performance.

I earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stanford University in composition and computer music. I hold a Master in Arts degree from the same university. I received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Hartford, Hartt School of Music, in piano and composition. I started my musical training in the pre-college program at the famous Manhattan School of Music, studying piano and composition.

I look forward to helping you learn to the play music on the piano.

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 have been working with Anna for several years now, and I can honestly say you're not going to find a better teacher! I've had tutors prior to working w
ith her, but her ability to blend academic knowledge with practical language usage is amazing! She's always well organized, and gives sincere thought to each lesson. That said, she is also has the ability to be flexible, and adjust the speed, direction, goal of the lesson as it's needed, in real time. You won't be disappointed!"

"Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my g
randparents.

Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn."

"Aksana is exactly what I hoped for in a Russian instructor. She has helped me fine tune my Russian skills and understand and practice difficult grammatica
l concepts that have gone by the wayside since studying Russian in college (3 years ago), and improve my conversational fluency. The lessons are always challenging and fun! She customizes the lesson to my interests and is always prepared, patient, and kind. Not only did Aksana come to the lessons with native fluency, a linguistics degree, and many many years of experience teaching Russian to English speakers -- she has supplied a fantastic textbook, and the links to hundreds of online Russian-learning resources to supplement my learning. I highly recommend Aksana as a teacher - she will meet you wherever your language skills and needs are!"
