I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Reading,
Writing,
Grammar,
Conversation
Language development,
Pronunciation,
Social Language Use.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.

Aksana is amazing! She is super patient and knowledgeable and she has taught me so much in so little time. I’m impressed with how much I have learned in only 5 classes. I will continue classes with her so I can become fluent in Russian.

In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whom levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress.

I take lessons with Mr. Philippe, and I am extremely impressed by his teaching method. I have previously taken French classes with different institutions and numerous instructors, and I evaluate Philippe as being one of the best if not the best instructor I have ever had. I base it on the way I am currently performing with all 3 skills (Speaking, Reading , and Writing). The best part is that I feel relaxed and confident in class. Philippe knows how to work with a student to get the best out of you, without affecting confidence. Tremendous skill. I highly recommend Philippe as an instructor for French.
James
I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further.
Elise
Philippe is a fantastic instructor and a wonderful, genuine person. From our first class together he accurately assessed my level and understood what my goals were for French learning, and he adapted my classes accordingly. I looked forward to every class we had—not only because I could see huge improvements in my language capability, but also because I loved talking with him! He is kind, warm and patient and encouraged me not only in my French language ability but also in life. After our classes ended together, I felt more confident in French conversation than I ever had, and I achieved the highest reading score of my French-speaking career! I would highly recommend Philippe.

"After only one lesson with Pablo I am very pleased with my experience with him. As I am a beginner, he started me on the basics and was very patient and encouraging. I found his material level appropriate and he is willing to move at whatever pace is comfortable for me. The homework he assigned and the additional resources he shared are proving to be very beneficial as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson and with Pablo's pleasant and relaxed personality, I look forward to my future lessons."

"I've had a wonderful experience learning Hindi with Taruna. I went to classes for over a year, and learned more than I would have imagined.
She has multiple academic resources to help make learning experience easier and fun, as well as helps students practice different skills in each class.
She covers all areas (speaking, reading, listening, grammar, writing) with a well defined methodology, that help to learn gradually but steadily.

She wrote the books used for the sessions, which I find very intuitive because they grow in complexity as you read.

I also found quite helpful that she was flexible with the hours available, otherwise it would be very challenging to find a good time for the class due to my job requirements.

Thanks!"

"Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons."
