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!

A Russian native with over 5 years of teaching Russian as a Foreign Language experience, I will tailor our lessons towards your main goal of learning the language, be it grammar brush-up, conversation, or getting ready for a test or a new job. I incorporate learning about culture as much as possible and include references to literature, movies, customs, and traditions.

About Maria

A graduate of Lomonosov Moscow State University majoring in Journalism, I moved to the States in 2007, and soon switched gears and got an MA in Art History. However, I never lost passion for my native language. Teaching it to non-native speakers lets me notice linguistic oddities and give thought t

If you are interested in learning the Russian language, correcting your pronunciation or spelling, learning how to read, or improving your understanding then there’s no better way to do it than to learn from a native speaker.

I am a native Russian speaker and fluent in English. I have lived in the United States for over 20 years. Having over 20 years of experience teaching Russian I am flexible in adjusting my teaching style and homework to each of my student's individual needs. I have experience with students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and language proficiency levels.

Why do most of us want to learn a language? Probably because we want to communicate with other people in it.

We often teach language through a set of grammar rules and vocabulary lists you need to recite with a teacher.

How effective is this teaching? My answer is not very much. I’ve been learning English for 12 years, through my middle school, high school, and college years. It became meaningful only ...

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

About Katya

Hello future students :-) I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I love teaching, and have extensive experience teaching not only music, but a variety of other subjects -- I successfully homeschooled my own 3 children for many years, one of them bei

Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.
Virginie
I didn't think you could teach music online, but I'm pleasantly surprised by the progress my son made on the piano. He progressed in the songs he plays but also in the way he plays them, Katya manages to make him feel the music even online.
Eleonore
3 of our 4 kids have online classes (at home previously) with Katya and we are all delighted with her. Katya is a great teacher, the kids love her. She has the perfect balance between structure and patience, she is funny and demanding at the same time. The kids learn a lot with a great and adapted selection of partitions. She pushes them the right way, they feel supported and recognized in their efforts and achievements.

С Мариной я занимаюсь больше года. За это время я многому научилась.

Занимаемся по сериалу Друзья. В течении недели смотрю по одной, две серии, потом перессказываю о чем там, потом готовлю пересказ на бумаге. На занятии мы с Мариной активно обсуждаем мой пересказ и мои ошибки, ещё успеваем обсудить повседневную лексику. На уроке узнаю много тонкостей в переводе английских слов. Слова не зубрю, но словарный запас пополняется с каждой неделей. Марина большое вам спасибо за уроки, мне очень нравиться учить английский именно с Вами. Вы несомненно талантливый учитель, ваш подход в обучении мне нравится.👍🤗
Irina
Спасибо, Мариночка, за интересный подход к обучению, когда уроки английского превращаются в увлекательную игру, а ученики становятся дружной весёлой командой! Ты-лучший преподаватель английского из всех, что знаю🌸🌸🌸! Когда отшлифуем этот язык , пойдём с тобой к следующему , ведь так ?

Translated Using Google Translate:

Thank you, Marinochka, for an interesting approach to learning, when English lessons turn into an exciting game, and students become a friendly, fun team! You are the best English teacher I know🌸🌸🌸! When we polish this language, let's go with you to the next, right? 😉

Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃

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.

"If you want a teacher who is:
- competent, patient (yet not lenient), who corrects you without making you feel insecure, will great a personalized curriculum, and where you will notice steady progress, I strongly recommend Aksana.

I speak 5 languages. And I think she really has the best approach to teaching Russian.
Another thing I really love about Aksana is that she has a real life teacher training as well as a degree She will ne able to relate what you talk about to littérature and culture in a very knowledgeable way. Which, I find very important on the end of any language teacher if they want their students to be completely fluent.

6 lessons in I have noticed a difference. And our classes are getting even more tailored as she starts to notice what I can do naturally/easily - and what I struggle with."

"It would be a truism to say that Anna is a great instructor, and she is. It is such a great experience to learn Russian with a native speaker, especially one who has seen so much. Her ability to explain the intricacies of the language in both English and Russian is invaluable. Her understanding of Russian grammar, combined with her ability to explain it in English creates a clear learning experience. I highly recommend her."

"Aksana is an awesome professor! From the comfort of my home, I meet with Aksana weekly for my Russian lesson over video chat. Each lesson is structured, as we have the Russian book of lessons that we go through to review grammar rules and new vocab lists. In addition, each lesson consists of a lot of free form dialogue back and forth, completely in Russian! Aksana is very patient, repeating words many times so you can ensure you are having a natural pronunciation! She also sends audio clips so that I can listen to the vocab from a native speaker accent as well. Aksana always has interesting facts to understand why and how the language came to be as it is. Overall, the class is extremely informative but also fun and we get to practice actual conversation!"
