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.

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.

"Давайте говорить по Русский"

I bet I can help you learn the cyrillic alphabet in less than 30 min! You will be able to read the phrase above after one lesson! How cool is that?

Because of its expressivity Russian is one of the most spoken languages in the world. As a native speaker I will be happy to help you get started with great conversational skills along with fun facts about the culture, habits and other cool things about this country. After all Russia is the land of great writers, philosophers and poets, whose most intimate ideas are so much better understood knowing the language.

Thanks to Dmitri I learned how to read Russian in 20 min)) Now he is explaining to me the structure of the language and I've already learned some key phases! Dmitri, Thank you for opening the door to this beautiful language!
Milena F.
In the very first lesson Dmitri was able to fix my breathy singing voice issue once and for all! I am so happy with him and could not recommend him more!
He really speaks several languages and has a vast knowledge not only on technique but on repertoire and style.
Most importantly is that he is patient and so encouraging.

"I have had the joy of learning Russian with Anna for more than three years. Through Anna's highly skilled teaching methods, motivation, and inspiration, I have moved from a complete beginner level to a level of advanced proficiency.

In addition to being exceptionally knowledgeable in the field of foreign languages and language teaching, Anna is extremely professional, compassionate, and patient. She is a teacher who sincerely cares about her students, and is determined to ensure their understanding of all material she introduces, including complex aspects of grammar and language usage. It is clear to see that she prepares every lesson with consideration and purpose, and dedicates a tremendous effort to making lessons interesting and fun.

In our lessons, Anna strongly emphasizes conversation and listening comprehension, as well as the thorough reading and analysis of demanding literary and scientific texts. She strives to create a familiarity with the Russian language which plays a fundamental role in achieving fluency. Anna's outstanding teaching methods and remarkable perseverance make seemingly impossible to understand grammar rules, as well as the structure and nuances of Russian easy to grasp and to apply to speech and writing.

It is a gift to be able to have a teacher like Anna. She is without question one of the most talented teachers I have ever met, and she has my highest recommendation to prospective students of Russian."
