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!

I selected Ekaterina because she was local and had a designated studio in which to conduct the lessons. When I spoke to her, she was concerned about maintaining social distancing due to the Coronovirus concerns and offered online as an alternative. I specifically chose her because I did not want online lessons so she then agreed to meet outside at a park bench where 6 feet distance could be maintained. However, some days later, I was contacted by her that she changed her mind about meeting due to her health concerns. There was not enough time for me to get a refund because the TakeLessons staff was unavailable to assist. Unless the staff corrects this, she will get paid a lesson credit for a lesson not conducted, and I will be out a paid credit I did not receive. I am very disappointed and I hope she updates her profile to reflect her online-only restriction.

Teaching conversation and translation at native and highest levels. I am a native speaker of the Russian language, a professional musician with perfect pitch and thus no accent in my speaking. I am also equally fluent in English and have been hosting radio programs spanning over 10 years. I have given talks in both languages internationally and have been published by Carol Publishing as well as Genet Publishing in newspapers, on line, in print both soft and hard cover available in Barns and Noble, Amazon and anywhere fine books are sold.

If you are learning to speak in the Russian language or if you are improving your skills, if you are a singer working on enunciation and the feeling of the language for writing, speaking or singing - you have come to the right place. My family of professional musicians have helped orchestras and choir in the production of Alexander Nevsky on the big screen in concert of the Eastman Theater that to this day continues to illicit fond memories ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

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.

I am a senior at Florida State University majoring in, well Russian of course. As a heritage speaker I have been speaking Russian since I could talk, even before English. Having taken dozens of Russian classes at all levels, I have had experiences with teachers ranging from tedious to very pleasurable as has every college student so I know how to create a learning environment that maximizes the student's comfortability, and therefore their potential. The most important thing when it comes to learning a new language is your relationship with your teacher as students are a lot more likely to learn more when they aren't nervous to ask questions and communicate freely with their teacher. This can be hard to do even with a good teacher in large classrooms which is why a 1-on-1 environment is so constructive especially when learning a new language. From the first Russian class I took at my university I have witnessed my colleagues struggle with basic concepts in the field to no fault of ...

"I've been studying Russian with Elena (Lena) for about three years. Previously, I had roughly the equivalent of one university year of Russian and hadn't enjoyed it as much due to the pace of the class among other things. However, I've stayed with Russian, as difficult as it has been for me, in large part due to Lena. She's extremely patient and competent, so I've gotten a lot out of the weekly and bi-weekly lessons. She also speaks good French, so it's been helpful, as the languages I know best are English and French. Спасибо, Лена !"
