About Aksana P.

Close
Brooklyn, NY
View Full Profile

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.

About Aksana
PhD. in Russian Language and Literature, Immanuel Kant State University of Russia (Kaliningrad State University), Russia, 2002 Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Russian and Belarusian Languages and Literature (Diploma with honors), Belarusian State University, Belarus, 1995.

I am a native Russian tutor. Now I live in NYC and teach Russian as a foreign language in CUNY.

    I teach the Russian language from the very beginning - elementary, basic level - to higher levels.
  The most important goal of my classes is that you enjoy our meetings by keeping interest and feeling the progress.
  Individual approach to each student is the key point to the success. We study the vocabulary, grammar, and situations related to the student's current activities. As a result all my students successfully use the learned skills for their professiona
l or private life.
  During my lessons, I'm trying to reach the best balance between speaking, listening, grammar, conversation and other aspects of the language.
  I can help you understand the system of the Russian language, so that you were not limited by phrases that you learn during the lesson, but could make your own sentences, paragraphs, express your thoughts in different ways.
  We will pay enough attention to grammar, pronunciation, reading and speaking.
  I will explain to you the way Russians talk in their everyday life because some Russian foundations and manners differ from American ones.
  As your personal instructor, I'm going to give you honest feedback on your strengths and weaknesses and design a curriculum that fits your needs.
  I'll be happy to help you learn the Russian language. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
  Thank you for your interest - I look forward to seeing you in my classes!

Policy: All changes in the schedule (except emergencies) should be made 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise the lesson will be marked as missed.

Aksana is the Best! She is the most patient teacher I have worked with. I feel very lucky to work with her not only because she has such a vast knowledge of Russian language/culture/history, but she knows and can utilize many teaching techniques. Want to learn or brush up on your Russian? Pick Aksana.

I was a Russian minor in college, and Aksana is still one of the best Russian instructors I have ever had. I have learned and improved so much in just the few short months I have taken her lessons. She is funny, kinda, and keeps me accountable. Highly recommend!

Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak Russian? The recipe is here. I am a highly qualified Russian language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience.

Together we will establish clear objectives for our lessons and will work on your grammar proficiency, listening and speaking skills, and accent neutrality.

About Anna
Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak the language? The recipe is here. If you do the assignments I give you (no need to search for any extra materials), I can assure you that soon you will be able to speak and understand.

I am a highly qualified NYC-based Russian and English language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience. During the years of my teaching practice, I have developed several teaching methods, which I use in my classes. Together we will establish clear objectives for our lessons and will work on your grammar proficiency, listening and speaking skills, and accent neutrality.

I am a strict teacher :) Seriously. You have a goal and I am here to help you get there, whether it is to be able to negotiate with your business partners, speak to your family members or
read "War and Peace" in original. I will work hard to help you reach it, but I expect you to fulfill your part of a deal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here using the "Ask a question" button. If you have already decided that you need to speak Russian or English, do not postpone it for another day, month or year. Click the green button and let's do it.
I am looking forward to starting our language journey!

P.S. You can see me in action on my YouTube channel "Anna Cher: Russian from the Heart": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3r_jGuhcb7D48Vh0pakNcA

*****
Some technical aspects:

- All materials are provided and included into the price of a lesson

- Recommended frequency of lessons: minimum of 2 times per week (duration of each lesson – 1-1.5h). Learning a language is like going to the gym: to get the muscles, you have to practice regularly.

- If you would like to have a class at a specific time and it is not available in my calendar, please send me a message. I may be able to change some things around and accommodate your request.

- I try to be flexible and modify my schedule based on your needs. But please be considerate and let me know 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel a class.

Thank you!

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.

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

About Liudmila I.

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

About Liudmila

I have performed in over 4,000 concerts and have had the privilege of performing as the Principal Harpist at St. Petersburg Opera Theatre and Mariinsky Theatre in Russia.

Experienced teacher of Russian to adult professionals. Balanced diet of grammar focus and fluency building. Communicative approach, based on your interests, portfolio, meaningful tasks, and real-life scenarios. Looking forward to working with you! До встречи!

About Maryna
Hi, my name is Maryna!
.
I'm from Crimea. I've been living in the USA for over 10 years, which helped me develop a near-native proficiency in English.
This is very helpful when it comes to grammar explanations and helping my students understand the subtleties of meaning.
.
I'm a full-time educator. I learn about latest language-learning tools and methodologies on a daily basis. I have a degree in teaching foreign languages, and I started teaching over a decade ago. I have taught intensive professional courses and I have developed textbooks.
.
I specialize in adult learners of Russian and English, as well as my 5 year-old son, who is learning both:)
I study several foreign languages myself, so I have endless empathy for my students' efforts and successes.
.
I will taylor our classes to your needs and interests.
You can sign
up for 30-, 45-, 60-, and 90-minute lessons.
.
30-minute sessions are a new option.
Here is why I added this option:
- They could be done in the chitchat format to maintaint and improve your conversational skills.
- They could be conducted in a Q&A format, if you need specific questions answered.
- They are essencial if you need help with a self-study plan and periodical feedback on your self-study progress.
.
Please, feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you!

Привет, меня зовут Марина!
.
Я из Крыма. Я живу в США уже больше 10 лет, и за это время мне удалось заговорить по-английски почти в совершенстве. Это очень облегчает объяснения грамматики и нюансов в значении слов.
.
Я постоянно вращаюсь в сфере образования и стараюсь одной из первых узнавать о новых инструментах и методологиях преподавания. У меня красный диплом и больше 10 лет опыта в области изучения и преподавания иностранных языков. Я преподавала профессиональные курсы и разрабатывала учебники.
.
Сейчас я специализируюсь на преподавании русского и английского языков взрослым, а так же моему пятилетнему сыну, который учит оба языка:)
Также я сама изучаю несколько иностранных языков, поэтому ратую и радуюсь за успехи своих студентов, как за свои собственные.
.
Я разработаю программу для вас на основе ваших нужд и интересов.
Вы можете выбрать уроки по 30, 45, 60 или 90 минут.
.
Я недавно добавила 30-минутные уроки. И вот почему:
- Они могут проводиться в формате непринуждённой беседы, если вы хотите поддерживать и постепенно повышать свои разговорные навыки.
- Они могут иметь формат "вопрос-ответ", если вы ищите ответы на конкретные вопросы.
- Они могут быть полезны, если вам нужна помощь, чтобы правильно организовать своё самообучение и получать периодическую оценку своего прогресса и рекомендации преподавателя.
.
Не стесняйтесь написать мне, если у вас есть какие-либо вопросы. С нетерпением жду ваших сообщений!
.
Марина

Maryna is an outstanding and talented professional, with an extraordinary ability for teaching and communicating with her pupils. She owns a vast culture -apart from being a consummated polyglot -which allows her to talk and explain all kind of subjects and to be easily understood by her pupils. I have been studying Russian with her, and I must admit that my level improved significantly since I met her. I highly recommend her to all those who wish to learn or improve their English or Russian. You will not regret it!

I have had numerous skype video Russian lessons from Maryna she tries to teach people a language the way they might naturally learn one as a native speaker , via conversation intersperesed with discussion of grammar rules when appropriate. I Also like her WhatsApp group which combines native Russian speakers learning English with English ( an interesting variety including native and. Non-native speakers from various spots on the globe) speakers learning Russian so that all can learn from each other. Maryna has a lot of experience learning various languages and teaching and this knowledge of the language learning process manifests itself in her teaching style.
