Private Russian Teacher

I enjoy teaching kids Russian language. I think, that children benefit from personalized private lessons much more, than from groups lessons given in schools, where kids have not only different level of grammar knowledge but also different level of understanding of the language.

My lessons are very interactive - we are not just reading and writing, but we play games, we solve puzzles... Of course, it is all in Russian :)

About Galyna

Hello! I teach piano and flute. I can prepare for competitions and exams, give knowledge of music theory, or teach music just for fun - for your, or your kid's enjoyment. My students performed in studio recitals, successfully passed Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations,

My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!

My daughter took lessons with Galyna for five years. At the age of seven she was true beginner - no experience with any musical instruments. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons! She ended up playing in a band in middle school and I attribute her success to Galyna's lessons. Galyna is professional, friendly and flexible. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher.

Private Russian Teacher

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 made me feel at ease - gently guiding me through the material and kindly offering corrections when needed, helping you to feel comfortable taking risks which is necessary when learning something new. The worksheets Askana provided are helpful and she told me about a number of other good resources to use for practice between lessons. Seems like we are off to a good start!

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!

Alex helped me with my College English/Writing and Accounting courses. His lessons were vigorous, but fun and very engaging. Thanks to him my grade went from C to A.

I was so happy with the progress that I asked him to tutor my niece in high school math. Again, he surpassed all expectations. She ended up having one of the highest grades in her class.

I wholeheartedly recommend him!

"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!"

"Roman is an extraordinary teacher. I was already bilingual and was therefore surprised and delighted to find that Roman was fluent—or very close to it—in several difficult languages. His near native grasp of English allowed Roman to guide me easily through the difficult early days of my instruction in Russian. Then, once I was comfortable with the basics, Roman’s method of teaching expanded to reveal qualities that are often lacking in language instruction. He was enterprising in the design of his lessons, patient when I stumbled and innovative when particular strategies did not work. Best of all, Roman went above and beyond my expectations by spending a tremendous amount of time tailoring the course of study to my particular learning habits. Roman is quite simply the best language teacher I have ever had."
