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.

Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Private Russian Teacher

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Language development,
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

Online Russian Teacher

My name is Elena and I am a firm believer that anyone can learn new languages.
Language is a system which can be hacked with all the necessary tools provided by a teacher. And that is precisely what I am doing at my lessons.
As I have been tutoring for more than 5 years in Russian and English, I have developed my own style: every student requires an individual approach and encouragement to learn autonomously. My lessons are built around students' needs. It can include syllabus, videos, presentations or simply a day-to-day conversation.
I can also describe myself as a tech-savvy person. Implementing new technologies in studying is a part of my teaching process.
With regards to my qualifications, I have Bachelor's Degree in English teaching from Russian University, TESOL certificate accredited by ALAP and certificate in Teaching Russian as the Second Language
