Mariia is professional, punctual, and a good piano teacher. My daughter is learning so much, so fast! I've talked to other moms of similarly aged children, and their kids took much longer to be able to play with two hands. I attribute this to Mariia's teaching skills. Thanks Mariia!

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

About Alisa
Hello! My name is Alisa. I am an experienced Russian language tutor, native Russian.
I have been tutoring my English-speaking students for over 10 years, in private settings (NJ and FL), and over the internet. I have Master's degree in Russian Linguistic.
Many of my students have Russian family members, or they travel to Russian speaking countries, and it is very important to them to have a comfortable and clear communication. I am happy I was able to help bring those people together and make their life easier, and their communication enjoyable.
What I realized during past 10 years of teaching, that learning Russian is a challenging task, especially for English speakers. So, to ease that task, I always create an individual plan for every of my student, depends on his/her goal. Some students take only 15-20 lessons to learn just c
ommon phrases and pronunciation. Others stay with me for over 2 years because they want to achieve the advance level of knowledge. It all depends on your ultimate goal.
For my tutoring I use various textbooks, and also my own materials. I provide all those materials, so students don't have to buy anything. All they need to have is a computer, internet, and a printer.
I am pretty flexible, so we can set up lessons at a time convenient for you.
There is nothing to hold you back from trying my lessons and reach your goal.
So go ahead and click the green button to set up your first lesson.
Hope to meet you soon.
Sincerely,
Alisa.

I was very fortunate I found this teacher. I was preparing for a trip overseas and needed to take Russian lessons. During 4 months studying with Alisa I learned and understood more, than during a year of learning the language with Rosetta stone software. Alisa was very patient with me, and now I can speak a little Russian, and more importantly I understand a lot when listening to Russians. Thank you, Alisa.

Whether it's tutorial help you need, translating assistance or just want to have fun learning a new language, Maria guarantees superb results. Большое спасибо и удачи с Bашим русским!

About Maria
Maria Moshinskaya-Pearse was born in Moscow, Russia. Her mother was a piano teacher and started Maria playing at 4. She studied at the legendary Moscow Conservatory with Victor Merzhanov. In the US, she won the Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Young Artist Competition and debuted with the Symphony performing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. She earned her Bachelor's of Music at the University of Houston.

The Russian School of Playing has produced some of the world's greatest pianists. This method is fun and lays down the foundation for a relaxed way of playing, which gives confidence and technical security,
while enabling one to produce beautiful "singing" tone on the piano. This helps students of all ages to take their piano-playing to new heights.

It is so nice to have an instructor who not only cares about my child's musical interests, but also my child's welfare in general. Ms. Maria is compassionate about music, but also in her teaching style.

I get the honor to be the first to write something about Maria! I have known this Lady for several years. I am a musician. I play the guitar. I am not yet ready to learn the piano but when I am there is no one I'd rather take lessons from than this wonderful Woman! She is of the highest integrity. Genuinely sincere. With a loving heart! I can honestly say there are not enough stars to rate this human being.

Conversation and culture are two things I enjoy when it comes to Russian. I am a native speaker of Russia. Because I have been working with people from many different cultures, I can give you unique cultural insights about Russian language and Russian culture.

About Elena
As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have taught grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking to students raging from 18 to 60 years old. Most of my current students are preparing to apply to colleges in English-speaking countries or are improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. Due to the nature of what I am doing now, I am very comfortable working with students who have academic and professional goals such preparation for TOEFL or IELTS, practice for business presentations, or technical writing. However, I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are s
et, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for the future, and proficiency levels. Additionally, I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.

I'm from Brazil and Lena is by far the best English teacher I've ever had in my life. She taught me at Georgia Tech in 2014 for 6 months and I'm really glad to say that she was not only a teacher, but a friend! She is very hard working, intelligent, professional, committed, courteous and dedicated. The way she conducts her classes get us involved and inspire us to learn more. It's clear that she is very passionate about teaching!
