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!

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, I'm Michael!
I have been working in a multilingual environment for 17 years: English, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive practical experience in introducing my colleagues to the Russian language. They remember words and whole phrases with pleasure, then we practice them in everyday work. I do the same, trying to join their languages. And you know, it works, especially with the Spanish!

I am not saying you will master the language as well as the Russians speak it.
Instead, I will set real, necessary goals for myself and for you to help you integrate into a completely unfamiliar environment. I am an immigrant, I know what I'm talking about and I'm here to help you stop being deaf and dumb.

1st Level - to set up the communication bridge with the Russian native speakers.
2nd Level - to let you understand what's going on around you and let people understand what is on your mind or what you need to say.
3rd Level - to develop your vocabulary, phraseology, formulation of ...

Michael is a very personable and knowledgeable Russian language teacher. I am a native English speaker who does not speak Russian and he is helping me on a personal project that involves translating Russian poetry. He is very patient and enthusiastic about explaining the pronunciation and meaning of Russian words. Likewise, he puts great thought and preparation into our lessons and I feel like I am making steady progress. Would definitely recommend!
Hayden
Hayden:
Michael patiently works with me on pronunciation in his own way. I used to learn pronunciation based on positions my mouth and tongue should be in. The result was bad. Now everything is different, lots of easier and better. Thanks a lot!
Doris
I study Russian at university. Working with Michael helps me better understand what we are taught in lectures. He can explain the sense of Russian words to make it easier to remember and use them. It speeds up my learning process and I always pass my tests perfectly.

С Мариной я занимаюсь больше года. За это время я многому научилась.

Занимаемся по сериалу Друзья. В течении недели смотрю по одной, две серии, потом перессказываю о чем там, потом готовлю пересказ на бумаге. На занятии мы с Мариной активно обсуждаем мой пересказ и мои ошибки, ещё успеваем обсудить повседневную лексику. На уроке узнаю много тонкостей в переводе английских слов. Слова не зубрю, но словарный запас пополняется с каждой неделей. Марина большое вам спасибо за уроки, мне очень нравиться учить английский именно с Вами. Вы несомненно талантливый учитель, ваш подход в обучении мне нравится.👍🤗
Irina
Спасибо, Мариночка, за интересный подход к обучению, когда уроки английского превращаются в увлекательную игру, а ученики становятся дружной весёлой командой! Ты-лучший преподаватель английского из всех, что знаю🌸🌸🌸! Когда отшлифуем этот язык , пойдём с тобой к следующему , ведь так ?

Translated Using Google Translate:

Thank you, Marinochka, for an interesting approach to learning, when English lessons turn into an exciting game, and students become a friendly, fun team! You are the best English teacher I know🌸🌸🌸! When we polish this language, let's go with you to the next, right? 😉

Online Russian Teacher

Teaching conversation and translation at native and highest levels. I am a native speaker of the Russian language, a professional musician with perfect pitch and thus no accent in my speaking. I am also equally fluent in English and have been hosting radio programs spanning over 10 years. I have given talks in both languages internationally and have been published by Carol Publishing as well as Genet Publishing in newspapers, on line, in print both soft and hard cover available in Barns and Noble, Amazon and anywhere fine books are sold.

If you are learning to speak in the Russian language or if you are improving your skills, if you are a singer working on enunciation and the feeling of the language for writing, speaking or singing - you have come to the right place. My family of professional musicians have helped orchestras and choir in the production of Alexander Nevsky on the big screen in concert of the Eastman Theater that to this day continues to illicit fond memories ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Anna is a fantastic Russian tutor! She is very friendly, incredibly kind, and knows everything from the nuances of Russian grammar to cultural topics.
Tyler
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. It's abundantly clear that she has a plethora of experience with teaching the Russian language.
Kevin
Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work.
