So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

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.

Yulia is a devoted, persistent, and an encouraging teacher. Yulia has taught me for 3 years and I am very thankful to have her teach me. She is a teacher that will think of ways to help her students during and outside lessons. When teaching, she will give many examples and tricks to help you understand. As a college student, I was very thankful she would find times to work with me. Yulia has been very supportive in helping me succeed and I highly recommend her.

"Давайте говорить по Русский"

I bet I can help you learn the cyrillic alphabet in less than 30 min! You will be able to read the phrase above after one lesson! How cool is that?

Because of its expressivity Russian is one of the most spoken languages in the world. As a native speaker I will be happy to help you get started with great conversational skills along with fun facts about the culture, habits and other cool things about this country. After all Russia is the land of great writers, philosophers and poets, whose most intimate ideas are so much better understood knowing the language.

Thanks to Dmitri I learned how to read Russian in 20 min)) Now he is explaining to me the structure of the language and I've already learned some key phases! Dmitri, Thank you for opening the door to this beautiful language!
Milena F.
In the very first lesson Dmitri was able to fix my breathy singing voice issue once and for all! I am so happy with him and could not recommend him more!
He really speaks several languages and has a vast knowledge not only on technique but on repertoire and style.
Most importantly is that he is patient and so encouraging.

"My company does business in Russia so learning the language is important for me. I tried programs like Rosetta Stone but progress was slow and frustrating. Learning from a native speaker like Maria is the best way I have found. Being able to receive answers to questions quickly with explanations of the culture along with the language is invaluable. She works at my pace and tailors lessons to my needs. I am finally learning to speak, read and converse in Russian . This is the only real way to learn."
