About Oksana
Hi!

I have taught piano for about 20 years, with great success. Some of my students are as young as 3 years old, some are in their 70s, and everything in between. I love to teach piano and Russian Language, it gives me great joy and personal satisfaction. I've traveled the world in concert, but after having my child, I have settled in Beverly Hills, CA where I perform for and teach many celebrities and their children.

I am very patient, caring and encouraging in my teaching approach.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to have you among my many happy students.

Oksana.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Musical and Education Background

I studied piano since the age of five. At nine I won my first international pian
o competition. I attended Saint Petersburg College and Florida State University where I graduated with honors in piano performance in 2001.

After graduating I embarked fully on my musical journey - since then, my music has touched many people around the world, including members of U.S. Troops and U.N. Officials throughout Asia and Europe. In 2003, I became the first Russian-American female pianist to travel overseas to entertain the U.S. Troops. I embarked on two world tours on behalf of the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department (MWR) of the U.S. Navy.

I then continued on a solo tour to entertain the U.S. Troops in September 2003, which brought me to the countries of Italy, Spain, and Greece. In February 2004, I went to Asia, where I performed for troops in Guam, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Singapore with Navy MWR. Upon completion of my performance tours, I moved to Los Angeles, California.

My move to Los Angeles brought me to the heart of the Hollywood elite, as I was the weekly performer at the legendary Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel from 2006 until 2012. Due to my interactions with individuals in the likes of Kardashian family, the Osbourne family, Mel Gibson, Sir Elton John, among others, I now continue to be in demand for private and charitable events. To date, I recorded eight CDs of original, classical, and popular music.

My “Free Floating” album won the “2010 Best Classical Album of the Year” on Solo Piano.com. In addition, I have collaborated with other international music artists for recordings, and my original compositions have been sought after by highly-regarded individuals.

As a music teacher, I provide students of all ages a means for artistic outlet. Teaching makes me feel more complete as an artist and more accomplished as an individual. Sharing the gift of music is my primary mission in life.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A native of Barnaul in Siberia, Russia, and alumna of the College of Music at Florida State University, Oksana currently resides in Beverly Hills with her family. She continues to dedicate much of her time, music, and sales of CDs to charitable causes, including environmental concerns through Cool Green Fashion for Forests and children with cleft palate through Smile Train.

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize my teaching approach to each individual student. Having taught for 20+ years has taught me that every student learns differently - some do well with an easy approach, others with a more firm approach, while others with something in between.

I analyze each student's learning patterns, and structure their lessons in a way that gets the best results in the shortest time. I also have recitals so that my students can showcase what they have learned.

I am very patient, and also have experience teaching children with special needs. I aim at being not only the best teacher, but also a mentor to my students.

I prepare my students for Certificate of Merit and Competitions.
I'm also a proud member of Music Teachers of California.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baby Grand Piano, full size and mid-size keyboard, four acoustic guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, broadway, musicals, rock, new age.

Oksana is a wonderful teacher!

I played piano for many years growing up, but after taking a few years off, I recently started lessons with Oksana. She helped me get right back in and I am loving every lesson so much. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take lessons!

About Jenni
My name is Jenni and I am a professional Latin and Greek teacher with over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring both Latin and Ancient Greek. I have taught professionally at the elementary, junior high, and graduate levels and I hold a Master’s degree in Classical Philology. I currently work at the Polis Institute, where I teach Greek and Latin as living languages to graduate students.

I also have familiarity with spoken Latin and Ancient Greek, and I teach all of my professional courses in a 100% immersion setting. My passion is to show every interested student that they have the capability to master these languages.

With my help, the complicated aspects of these languages will become clear to you, as I help my students learn tools and strategies that they will keep with them in the classroom and out – all in a fun and fr
iendly tutoring environment.

With specifically tailored instruction, either as a supplement to current courses or an education ab initio (i.e. from the beginning), I will work with you to help you access the beautiful literature, history and music of the languages of the Ancient World.

Jenni has an incredible depth of knowledge of both Latin and Greek, reflecting not only her years of experience with both languages, but also a very concerted effort to think about the best way to teach these languages.

This became very apparent when I approached her to help me in what I felt would be a near impossible task: to learn a semester's worth of Ancient Greek in one month, starting from scratch.

Her clarity of explanation, her command of the material, and her professionalism as a tutor and teacher all made that possible, to the point where when I actually showed up to class, I actually found myself ahead of where everybody else was. I had mastered the material so well thanks to her efforts, that on the first test, I achieved a 104% (even got the extra credit mark), much to the impressed amazement of my new professor.

So when I give her this solid review of her skills, it is not to her as a tutor, or even a teacher. It is to her as a professional. Which is what she is in every sense of the word, as an educator, an admirer, and a bonafide inhabitant of the world of classical languages.

Jenni is simply the best. My son was struggling with Latin last year and I found Jenni online and she was able to catch him up on what he missed in order for him to start the year on a positive note.This year is going well for him . I am happy to report he received his first test grade this year and scored a 35.5/40.

He has now enjoying Latin!

Jenni is absolutely amazing. She’s been providing additional, complimentary instruction once a week for my son who is entering 3rd-year Honors Latin. Language is not his strongest point and he’s periodically struggled with aspects of learning Latin along the way. We needed an expert’s assistance to achieve the academic success I expect from him! Jenni’s personable, caring, and patient manner of education, keen sense of direction, and technical and historical acuity, has made a profound impact on my son’s competency and confidence.

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.

In the one year that I had Mr. Scharping, it was easy to see how much he really loved the language. Personally, I loved his style of continuous repetition in order to learn things. In class he would speak to us in Latin and we would respond in Latin, which really helped me master the language. If you ever needed help he was also very open to help you out. I would gladly recommend Mr. Scharping to any of my friends, if they wanted to learn Latin, because of his diligence and extensive knowledge of the language.
