About Aksana

PhD. in Russian Language and Literature, Immanuel Kant State University of Russia (Kaliningrad State University), Russia, 2002 Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Russian and Belarusian Languages and Literature (Diploma with honors), Belarusian State University, Belarus, 1995.

I am a native Russian tutor. Now I live in NYC and teach Russian as a foreign language in CUNY.

    I teach the Russian language from the very beginning - elementary, basic level - to higher levels.
  The most important goal of my classes is that you enjoy our meetings by keeping interest and feeling the progress.
  Individual approach to each student is the key point to success. We study the vocabulary, grammar, and situations related to the student's current activities. As a result all my students successfully use the learned skills for their professional or

private life.
  During my lessons, I'm trying to reach the best balance between speaking, listening, grammar, conversation and other aspects of the language.
  I can help you understand the system of the Russian language, so that you were not limited by phrases that you learn during the lesson, but could make your own sentences, paragraphs, express your thoughts in different ways.
  We will pay enough attention to grammar, pronunciation, reading and speaking.
  I will explain to you the way Russians talk in their everyday life because some Russian foundations and manners differ from American ones.
  As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum that fits your needs.
  I'll be happy to help you learn the Russian language. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
  Thank you for your interest - I look forward to seeing you in my classes!

Policy: All changes in the schedule (except emergencies) should be made 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise the lesson will be marked as missed.

Aksana is a terrific instructor! After only a few lessons, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. She can quickly gauge the level of each student and subsequently tailor her lessons to the student's level and goals. I believe that Aksana is one of the best Russian instructors that I have had since studying Russian in college over 30 years ago and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Russian for the first time or to improve their skills if they have studied Russian previously.

Aksana is such an amazing instructor. She is patient and more than willing to work with your crazy work/life schedule. She customizes each lesson plan and you set the pace.

I’ve been learning Russian with Aksana for almost a year now, and she has really helped me out with my Russian. Aksana is a great teacher, and she provides good resources to study from, like videos, songs, and short stories, and it’s all really helped me build my Russian skills. I feel more confident in my speaking then I ever have. She is reliable and good at answering questions, and she really works with you to help understand grammar, or pronunciation. I have had such a great experience with Aksana, and if you need a Russian tutor, she is the one!

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

About Zachary

I am an orchestral conducting Masters graduate from Mannes College of Music who has been playing piano since the age of 4. I have been teaching beginner and intermediate piano for the past 5 years to students ranging from ages 7 - 65. I teach all types of styles ranging from classical to jazz to pop with everything in-between.

My students can expect to develop a strong and reliable technique while being able to express their musical ideas with a clear and dynamic level of sophistication. It's the stories and emotions that draw people to music, so I do my best to base my teachings around that concept.

Fantastic trumpet instructor. JQ is patient, receptive, encouraging—the list goes on. He's helped me go from literally not being able to make a decent note to playing a little shindig on New Year's for my family. Highly recommended. I'm still taking lessons!

Sean
I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him.

nguage is not his strongest point and he’s periodically struggled with aspects of learning Latin along the way. We needed an expert’s assistance to achieve the academic success I expect from him! Jenni’s personable, caring, and patient manner of education, keen sense of direction, and technical and historical acuity, has made a profound impact on my son’s competency and confidence."
