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!

Maria is not your average piano teacher. She does not merely teach you to play the piano--she teaches you to feel the music, to really experience it and, most importantly, to enjoy it. As an advanced adult student, I went through a few different teachers before finally finding Maria. I am so glad I did! She is taking my playing to a whole new level and going over my technique with a fine-toothed comb. I cannot recommend her enough!!
Lydia K.
Maria focuses on foundation, which is the most important strategy for improving in a long term. Maria puts effort to make piano as fun and beautiful instead of hard training. She is also very flexible in lesson times and tries to accommodate students' interest and need. I am glad I found her as my teacher!

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

If you are interested in learning the Russian language, correcting your pronunciation or spelling, learning how to read, or improving your understanding then there’s no better way to do it than to learn from a native speaker.

I am a native Russian speaker and fluent in English. I have lived in the United States for over 20 years. Having over 20 years of experience teaching Russian I am flexible in adjusting my teaching style and homework to each of my student's individual needs. I have experience with students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and language proficiency levels.

Why do most of us want to learn a language? Probably because we want to communicate with other people in it.

We often teach language through a set of grammar rules and vocabulary lists you need to recite with a teacher.

How effective is this teaching? My answer is not very much. I’ve been learning English for 12 years, through my middle school, high school, and college years. It became meaningful only ...

I selected Ekaterina because she was local and had a designated studio in which to conduct the lessons. When I spoke to her, she was concerned about maintaining social distancing due to the Coronovirus concerns and offered online as an alternative. I specifically chose her because I did not want online lessons so she then agreed to meet outside at a park bench where 6 feet distance could be maintained. However, some days later, I was contacted by her that she changed her mind about meeting due to her health concerns. There was not enough time for me to get a refund because the TakeLessons staff was unavailable to assist. Unless the staff corrects this, she will get paid a lesson credit for a lesson not conducted, and I will be out a paid credit I did not receive. I am very disappointed and I hope she updates her profile to reflect her online-only restriction.

"Anna Novikova is one of the most affable and interesting instructors I have ever had, making Russian, which is normally a difficult and intimidating subject, something to look forward to every week. Personally, I would recomend tutoring sessions for the conversations alone, but she also is a very intelligent woman and competent instructor, and your understanding of Russian is sure to improve with her."

"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."
