Hello. My name is Sergey. I'm from Brooklyn, New York. I am a NASM certified personal trainer, i have been training and teaching over 10 years. I'm currently a professional powerlifter, but i also do body weight training, bodybuilding, strongman and weightlifting. I also breakdance even though i no longer do it professionally, i still teach it. I also do martial arts, nowadays mostly bag work and nun chucks training. i have a lot of experience and knowledge and have done a lot of different types of trainings over the years and have made a lot of progress, so i know the best way to train you. I don't judge so don't be shy, i'll work with you no matter in what shape you're at or what experience, we all start somewhere. it's all about consistency and dedication! subjects that i offer: body weight training, weight loss circuit training, circ
uit training, bodybuilding, powerlifting, strength and conditioning, strongman, basic gymnastics (cartwheels, handstands, splits, hand balancing, muscle ups), Stretching sessions, breakdance lessons, gaming training sessions (PS4 only)
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!

It was a great lesson and Sergey speant way more time with me than what he needed to. He is very knowledgable about exercise and very flexible.
I am Russian native speaker. While working at Alliance Française I was tutoring French people in Russian language. I can help students to understand this subject deeper and to concentrate more on speaking practice which is very important in learning language.
Hi, there! My name is Helen and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students to speak a new language, to successfully pass their exams, and to increase their language confidence. I went to National University of Donetsk (Ukraine) and earned a Master’s degree in French language and literature in 2010. I'm a patient and easy going person and my teaching methods always depend on student’s age and language needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
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.
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.
Thanks for the awesome vocab practice and homework, I look forward to next Wednesday :)

Aksana made me feel at ease - gently guiding me through the material and kindly offering corrections when needed, helping you to feel comfortable taking risks which is necessary when learning something new. The worksheets Askana provided are helpful and she told me about a number of other good resources to use for practice between lessons. Seems like we are off to a good start!

Aksana is a terrific instructor! After only a few lessons, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. She can quickly gauge the level of each student and subsequently tailor her lessons to the student's level and goals. I believe that Aksana is one of the best Russian instructors that I have had since studying Russian in college over 30 years ago and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Russian for the first time or to improve their skills if they have studied Russian previously.

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.

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.
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.
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!
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! . Maryna
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
Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃
Рада быть в вашей команде 😀

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.
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.
Dear Student: I am am an Instructor with over 10 years of experience helping students learn and do well on their tests. By utilizing unique teaching methodology, I approach each student's needs and learning styles individually and develop customized lesson plan.
To date, 100% of my students passed their exams with 90% and above.

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!

Alex helped me with my College English/Writing and Accounting courses. His lessons were vigorous, but fun and very engaging. Thanks to him my grade went from C to A.
I was so happy with the progress that I asked him to tutor my niece in high school math. Again, he surpassed all expectations. She ended up having one of the highest grades in her class.
I have taught in Russia for several years. I have lived in Russia for 15 years. I am fluent in English and in Russian.
Hello, It's great to be here and I am happy to help you with your class. I teach all levels of Russian(beginner to expert). I have very complete knowledge of Russian authors like Tolstoy, Pushkin, Checkov e.t.c and can help you with that. On top of that, I have taught privately for 2 years and I have had good experience of dealing with the customers. If you are not sure of what to expect you can always give me a call
"Very friendly and patient. Works straight out of a textbook along with internet audio. Would recommend!"
"marina is great patient , understanding and very friendly and flexible , is very fun lesson"
"Tatiana is an awesome teacher! She's very patient -- doesn't mind repeating lessons zillion times! She's very flexible with her schedule as well . Always
accommodates last minute changes!! She's fabulous!"
"Aksana, is flexible with me and my crazy schedule. She's really helping with the Russian language!"
"Aksana is great! She moves at the right pace and makes sure that I understand the content before moving on. She keeps the material engaging and the lesso
ns are very enjoyable. I am very impressed by her knowledge of the history and origins of the language as well as teaching methodologies to help students understand more quickly - she is truly a gifted, professional teacher of the language. I will continue to take lessons with Aksana in my path to fluency, and I would highly recommend taking classes with Aksana!"

"Very patient and nice. Knows her Russian."
"Oksana is outstanding! She is so warm, her Russian is so beautiful and understandable. In the midst of great conversation, she will correct in a way that
makes total sense. I am so looking forward to my next lesson!"
"Aksana is a terrific instructor! After only a few lessons, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. She can
quickly gauge the level of each student and subsequently tailor her lessons to the student's level and goals. I believe that Aksana is one of the best Russian instructors that I have had since studying Russian in college over 30 years ago and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Russian for the first time or to improve their skills if they have studied Russian previously."
"She establishes a platform of ease initially to make students comfortable to learn the language and always uses a practical situation of daily livelihood
to express in that language. Rather than dominating the stance she conveniently allows her students to express themselves with affirmation and confidence. When struggling she is never frustrated and does not hesitate to go through what has been taught prior as basic steps to affluence in the learning process. Avoiding confusion and uncertainty is the key to learning a language and she is well crafted in avoiding these obstacles. Personally I feel greatly fortunate and studying under her has me assured that someday I will definitely be as fluent as a native speaker."
