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 purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.

Michael is very patient and will take his time to assure that you have a firm grasp on the Russian language, including pronunciation.
Stephanie
Michael is a very personable and knowledgeable Russian language teacher. I am a native English speaker who does not speak Russian and he is helping me on a personal project that involves translating Russian poetry. He is very patient and enthusiastic about explaining the pronunciation and meaning of Russian words. Likewise, he puts great thought and preparation into our lessons and I feel like I am making steady progress. Would definitely recommend!

Daniel is a fantastic chess teacher. I am at an intermediate level, and have had two lessons with Daniel so far, and I can already see my game improving. Daniel is very professional, and I can tell he genuinely cares about advancing my skills. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone interested in a chess teacher.

Online Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

About Zhao Yang

Hi! 你好!Привет! My name is Evgeniya (Zhao Yang)! I am multilingual and I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese, Russian and ESL. You have a genuine interest in learning Mandarin or Russian, you would love to explore the language, to learn more about the culture, people, history...

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

Personally, I would recomend tutoring sessions for the conversations alone, but she also is a very intelligent woman and competent instructor, and your understanding of Russian is sure to improve with her."

"Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work."

"Anna is a truly fantastic teacher who clearly loves what she does. Her enthusiasm and professionalism always inspire me as a student. I have had the pleasure of learning Russian with Anna for over a year now and can attest to the positive effect her lessons have had on my Russian proficiency. She always answers every question I have clearly and efficiently and provides helpful examples that reinforce the material we covered. During our discussions, Anna also explains elements of Russian culture and traditions which any serious student of Russian should know. Anna has helped me improve my conversational Russian, understanding of idioms and jargon, as well as professional and academic writing.

Anna shines as an outstanding teacher of Russian. She is engaging, very interesting to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in improving their Russian proficiency should work with Anna!"
