About Aksana P.

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 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 professional 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 exactly what I hoped for in a Russian instructor. She has helped me fine tune my Russian skills and understand and practice difficult grammatical concepts that have gone by the wayside since studying Russian in college (3 years ago), and improve my conversational fluency. The lessons are always challenging and fun! She customizes the lesson to my interests and is always prepared, patient, and kind. Not only did Aksana come to the lessons with native fluency, a linguistics degree, and many many years of experience teaching Russian to English speakers -- she has supplied a fantastic textbook, and the links to hundreds of online Russian-learning resources to supplement my learning. I highly recommend Aksana as a teacher - she will meet you wherever your language skills and needs are!

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.

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. I have developed several teaching methods, which I use during 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.

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.

It would be a truism to say that Anna is a great instructor, and she is. It is such a great experience to learn Russian with a native speaker, especially one who has seen so much. Her ability to explain the intricacies of the language in both English and Russian is invaluable. Her understanding of Russian grammar, combined with her ability to explain it in English creates a clear learning experience. I highly recommend her.

I am a native Russian speaker. During the lesson I use books of russian authors that are really interesting and helpful. My lesson combines: grammar, reading and listening. In such way we are able to learn all aspects that will help the student to speak fluently and understand native speakers easily. I also provide exercises and give hometasks to practice the material we learned during the lesson. A little bit later, we will start to read and learn articles about culture and traditions as well. It is really interesting and will give a student a lot of useful knowledges. My classes are really interesting and they will help a student to reach his/her goals.

Russian & Ukrainian are my native languages. I will show my students easier ways to learn these interesting languages.

For a student without any experience we will start with the alphabet, followed by simple words and phrases. We will continue at a pace that the student is comfortable with. For an advanced learner we will figure out your level of knowledge and then jump into new useful material.

I use several books to guide the student along, and will assign creative & captivating homework for the next lesson. I will provide guidance and support at every step of our journey. You'll never get bored with me. I pay great attention to grammar and pronunciation, we'll also work on the reading part.

I offer first lesson for free so we could determine your language level & your goals, become more comfortable with each other. Feel free to ask me any questions :)

It's common belief that  master any languages it's too difficult and in adulthood it's simply impossible
What if i will tell that you will able to talk in  Russian within 3 months ?
I know Russian it's count like one of the "hardest" language in the world
You started to scare?)
Technically , you're not born with a language .All of us could have ended up with Chinese as first language .
I'm not native Russian speaker.But i have graduated school and college in Russian.So i know all "hardness" of learning new languages special in Russian
Before 20 years old i wasn't interest in learning new languages at all.For me it was  unattainable dream.I just changed my mind and after one year i started to speak in English, Turkish and just
started to learn Arabic .And you can see how my technic working on me ;)

About Nicholas J.

This course focuses in the basic Russian, spoken, reading, and writing skills. Exercising correct spelling, pronunciation, and accurate translation. Russian is my first language, I have constantly kept up with it and have years of professional translating experience. I have excellent teaching skills and ears of experience, as well as lots of patience. My time in the armed forces taught me excellent organizational skills, time management and realistic expectations. For example you will not be able to speak fluent Russian after a basic lesson or two. I have earned a Bachelors Degree in professional communication, and continuously work with foreign business utilizing my skills in translation, and teaching others, in real life.

About Nicholas
My name is Nicholas Jones, I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I always had a passion for teaching, but as any good teacher one must first learn. I studied English as a second language and today have a bachelors degree in professional communication from a US based university. I keep in constant contact with peers, friends and family and travel to visit them often, keeping my Russian current. Aside from having professional language skills working as a translator, for an American based company and for a Russian entrepreneur, I know the culture and mannerisms and as any good language course should teach would include them in the plan. Most of all I can be very flexible in my teaching style, if getting to a goal is what you are looking for, that is a direction I can be comfortable with, strictly business. If you are on the other hand, loo
king for an easy time and to learn as much as you can before fully committing, for example, we can have an easy going, learn at your own pace type of environment. Please just let me know what you are looking for and we can agree on what is the most comfortable scenario for you.

Russian and Ukrainian are my native languages. And of course to explain, to help with the understanding of the specifics of this language it is easier for the native speaker. I was learning English and other languages in University of International Relations Kharkov, Ukraine and have the private lesson experiences. With great pleasure I will bring my knowledge to our lessons and put a lot of effort and positive energy. You will be able to get to the level you need for your communication.

About Hanna

I graduated from the University of International Relations where I was studying forging languages English, Persian,Turkish. My native languages are Russian, Ukrainian. I started to provide private lessons as soon as I got my Diploma. I was working with children helping them to get ready for their exams at schools and universities and for adults who were learning languages for business, communication in different spheres of their lives. I loved to do this! It is exciting to see my students progress and make them proud of their success! Now, as I mentioned before, I am living in the USA and hope to be helpful for anybody who needs to improve their Russian or to start speaking English. Depending on your purposes, aims, goals, I will choose the specia
