As a Russian Native, accomplished instructor with 20+ years experience, second generation educator, mother of a six year old boy and mentor to over 100 students, I know all the ins and outs when it comes to instilling a lifelong passion for this beautiful language.

My record shows fast results with my students, no matter which direction they decide to go with their training.

I believe in students really enjoying their lessons, and with me, they always look forward to coming back for more. I'm very knowledgeable with many methods on the market, and I create an individual approach to each of my students.

About Oksana
Hi!

I have taught piano for about 20 years, with great success. Some of my students are as young as 3 years old, some are in their 70s, and everything in between. I love to teach piano and Russian Language, it gives me great joy and personal satisfaction. I've traveled the world in concert, but after having my child, I have settled in Beverly Hills, CA where I perform for and teach many celebrities and their children.

I am very patient, caring and encouraging in my teaching approach.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to have you among my many happy students.

Oksana.

My Musical and Education Background

I studied piano since the age of five. At nine I won my first international pian
o competition. I attended Saint Petersburg College and Florida State University where I graduated with honors in piano performance in 2001.

After graduating I embarked fully on my musical journey - since then, my music has touched many people around the world, including members of U.S. Troops and U.N. Officials throughout Asia and Europe. In 2003, I became the first Russian-American female pianist to travel overseas to entertain the U.S. Troops. I embarked on two world tours on behalf of the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department (MWR) of the U.S. Navy.

I then continued on a solo tour to entertain the U.S. Troops in September 2003, which brought me to the countries of Italy, Spain, and Greece. In February 2004, I went to Asia, where I performed for troops in Guam, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Singapore with Navy MWR. Upon completion of my performance tours, I moved to Los Angeles, California.

My move to Los Angeles brought me to the heart of the Hollywood elite, as I was the weekly performer at the legendary Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel from 2006 until 2012. Due to my interactions with individuals in the likes of Kardashian family, the Osbourne family, Mel Gibson, Sir Elton John, among others, I now continue to be in demand for private and charitable events. To date, I recorded eight CDs of original, classical, and popular music.

My “Free Floating” album won the “2010 Best Classical Album of the Year” on Solo Piano.com. In addition, I have collaborated with other international music artists for recordings, and my original compositions have been sought after by highly-regarded individuals.

As a music teacher, I provide students of all ages a means for artistic outlet. Teaching makes me feel more complete as an artist and more accomplished as an individual. Sharing the gift of music is my primary mission in life.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A native of Barnaul in Siberia, Russia, and alumna of the College of Music at Florida State University, Oksana currently resides in Beverly Hills with her family. She continues to dedicate much of her time, music, and sales of CDs to charitable causes, including environmental concerns through Cool Green Fashion for Forests and children with cleft palate through Smile Train.

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize my teaching approach to each individual student. Having taught for 20+ years has taught me that every student learns differently - some do well with an easy approach, others with a more firm approach, while others with something in between.

I analyze each student's learning patterns, and structure their lessons in a way that gets the best results in the shortest time. I also have recitals so that my students can showcase what they have learned.

I am very patient, and also have experience teaching children with special needs. I aim at being not only the best teacher, but also a mentor to my students.

I prepare my students for Certificate of Merit and Competitions.
I'm also a proud member of Music Teachers of California.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baby Grand Piano, full size and mid-size keyboard, four acoustic guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, broadway, musicals, rock, new age.

Oksana is a wonderful teacher!

I played piano for many years growing up, but after taking a few years off, I recently started lessons with Oksana. She helped me get right back in and I am loving every lesson so much. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take lessons!

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.

About Anna
Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak the language? The recipe is here. If you do the assignments I give you (no need to search for any extra materials), I can assure you that soon you will be able to speak and understand.

I am a highly qualified NYC-based Russian and English language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience. During the years of my teaching practice, I have developed several teaching methods, which I use in 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 am a strict teacher :) Seriously. You have a goal and I am here to help you get there, whether it is to be able to negotiate with your business partners, speak to your family members or
read "War and Peace" in original. I will work hard to help you reach it, but I expect you to fulfill your part of a deal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here using the "Ask a question" button. If you have already decided that you need to speak Russian or English, do not postpone it for another day, month or year. Click the green button and let's do it.
I am looking forward to starting our language journey!

P.S. You can see me in action on my YouTube channel "Anna Cher: Russian from the Heart": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3r_jGuhcb7D48Vh0pakNcA

*****
Some technical aspects:

- All materials are provided and included into the price of a lesson

- Recommended frequency of lessons: minimum of 2 times per week (duration of each lesson – 1-1.5h). Learning a language is like going to the gym: to get the muscles, you have to practice regularly.

- If you would like to have a class at a specific time and it is not available in my calendar, please send me a message. I may be able to change some things around and accommodate your request.

- I try to be flexible and modify my schedule based on your needs. But please be considerate and let me know 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel a class.

Thank you!

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.

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

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. No matter what your reasons for learning a foreign language are, ultimately it's a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. I have taught for many years and learnt that everyone is "language talented" when they actually want to speak a new language. And if you are one of them I garantie that my method will work for you.
3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

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

For over 6 years of professional experien
ce 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 implemented 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 during the learning process and that is when your classes are comprehensible, interesting and engaging.

*****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.

*****Recommendations*****

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

I enjoyed my lesson and look forward to the next ones. Roman located were I was at in my Russian language by asking question. Then used that knowledge as the bases and went from there. Roman used shared video so I could see what notes he was typing then emailed those notes to me in addition to other resources. His explanations were simple, cut and dry. Challenging but not overwhelming!

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,

Привет! Russian is my first language and it has a very special place in my heart. I love it for its emotional charge and incredible poetic expression.
After many years of helping my friends who study classical voice, I found new interesting and simpler ways to teach this language

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem Kolesov and I'm 22 years old. I'm a second year Masters student at Roosevelt University majoring in Violin Performance.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in Voice, Violin and Piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I had to go through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach
my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

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 grandparents.

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.

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.

About Galina
My name is Galina. I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach a
dults and children one-to-one, in groups or online.

According to Confucius, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Now as I have been teaching for almost 10 years, I am certain that I most certainly will not have to work a single day in my life. I will simply be enjoying the process of educating my students and sharing my culture with them.
