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.

I have a Master's degree from NYU's School of Education and I have taught for many years. English has always been and remains my favorite subject, first as a student and now as a teacher. I have helped many people improve their reading, writing, spelling, grammar and pronunciation of the English language. My students range from elementary school kids to adults, and often are ESL students. I believe everyone should be able to read and comprehend the language, and benefit from all the beautiful literature out there. I also believe that everyone should be able to communicate effectively, whether in writing or through the spoken word, and I enjoy being part of their process.

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

I have taught in public schools for the past five years with excellent results and past students have reached out to me telling me, how much I helped them and how I put in the extra effort and time to make sure they have a clear understanding of the discussion topics. I will make my lessons FUN, ENGAGING, and MEMORABLE. I will include the objectives for student learning, the teaching/learning activities, and strategies to check student understanding. You will NEVER end a class unsure of a word or topic you would learn about!

"I've been studying Russian with Tatiana for close to six months now at two lessons per week. From the very beginning, it's been an immensely fruitful and deeply enjoyable experience -- I feel my progress in the language is palpable (and I was a total beginner at 23). Our lessons are fun, and the homework assignments (most often, textbook exercises and reading responses to Russian-language films) challenging (though never to the point of being stressful). A huge bonus is that our textbook is online and free. I've been deliriously happy with my experience, and cannot recommend Tatiana enough. "

Bonne Fête des Mères! French Vocabulary for Mother's Day

Spanish TV Shows on Netflix That Will Expedite Your Learning

One of the most common tips that Spanish teachers will tell their students is to watch shows in Spanish for listening comprehension. But what should you watch? More often than not, I find students who are learning Spanish on their own to end up watching “Narcos” or “El Señor de Los Cielos”. Although they are great shows, I wouldn’t suggest watching them for educational purposes. There are a lot of words and phrases that we should avoid using when we converse in Spanish. Especi …
