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!

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.

Yulia is excellent at taking it up a notch from the very first lesson. I have been playing for a few years at a couple different churches, and she completely changed my thoughts on technique from the get go!
Alan
Yulia is amazing! She taught my son, a beginner who had only played at School of Rock previously, basic technique, reading music, rhythm, and really got him started on the right path. With her kind, friendly, patient teaching style, he was immediately comfortable and learned quickly. With her guidance, 3 years later he is doing great things in high school! Yulia is an absolute gem — a professional who is also a great teacher. We would give her 6 or 7 stars if we could!!

Yulia is firm yet thorough and kind. She commands attention with her ambitious spirit and excellent expectations. I love the way that she continues to gain respect and admiration from her students.

I use Task-Based Language Teaching methods in my lessons. For example, a task could be interacting with Russian business partners, ordering food at cafes and restaurants, checking into a hotel, making a product presentation, communicating with a spouse’s family, applying for a job, enrolling into a Russian university, asking directions, reading Russian literature or news, etc. In other words, my classes are student-centered and designed in accordance with a student’s real-life needs. All activities (grammar, reading, speaking, listening, pronunciation skills) are used to reach a learner’s goal. I use a lot of authentic materials in my lessons: YouTube, social media, commercials, news, movies and various readings (including social science and fiction). I have fun, well-structured lessons and provide interesting and engaging discourse with each one of my students.

"I have been taking private lessons with Anna weekly for one year. She has taught me Russian from a complete beginner level. I've taken a number of language classes in the past (for other languages) and it's clear that Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is clear and gives excellent explanations, and is well-prepared for each class. She's also able to give requested ad-hoc lessons whenever I have specific questions, even without preparation. I would highly recommend Anna as a Russian teacher, whether you're in-person or online. I do both types of lessons with her and she is highly effective through both mediums. Last but not least, she's a great pleasure to be around, as a person!"

"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."

"Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher."
