As a Russian Native, accomplished instructor with 20+ years experience, second generation educator, mother of a six year old boy and mentor to over 100 students, I know all the ins and outs when it comes to instilling a lifelong passion for this beautiful language.

My record shows fast results with my students, no matter which direction they decide to go with their training.

I believe in students really enjoying their lessons, and with me, they always look forward to coming back for more. I'm very knowledgeable with many methods on the market, and I create an individual approach to each of my students.

About Oksana
Hi!

I have taught piano for about 20 years, with great success. Some of my students are as young as 3 years old, some are in their 70s, and everything in between. I love to teach piano and Russian Language, it gives me great joy and personal satisfaction. I've traveled the world in concert, but after having my child, I have settled in Beverly Hills, CA where I perform for and teach many celebrities and their children.

I am very patient, caring and encouraging in my teaching approach.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to have you among my many happy students.

Oksana.

My Musical and Education Background

I studied piano since the age of five. At nine I won my first international pian
o competition. I attended Saint Petersburg College and Florida State University where I graduated with honors in piano performance in 2001.

After graduating I embarked fully on my musical journey - since then, my music has touched many people around the world, including members of U.S. Troops and U.N. Officials throughout Asia and Europe. In 2003, I became the first Russian-American female pianist to travel overseas to entertain the U.S. Troops. I embarked on two world tours on behalf of the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department (MWR) of the U.S. Navy.

I then continued on a solo tour to entertain the U.S. Troops in September 2003, which brought me to the countries of Italy, Spain, and Greece. In February 2004, I went to Asia, where I performed for troops in Guam, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Singapore with Navy MWR. Upon completion of my performance tours, I moved to Los Angeles, California.

My move to Los Angeles brought me to the heart of the Hollywood elite, as I was the weekly performer at the legendary Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel from 2006 until 2012. Due to my interactions with individuals in the likes of Kardashian family, the Osbourne family, Mel Gibson, Sir Elton John, among others, I now continue to be in demand for private and charitable events. To date, I recorded eight CDs of original, classical, and popular music.

My “Free Floating” album won the “2010 Best Classical Album of the Year” on Solo Piano.com. In addition, I have collaborated with other international music artists for recordings, and my original compositions have been sought after by highly-regarded individuals.

As a music teacher, I provide students of all ages a means for artistic outlet. Teaching makes me feel more complete as an artist and more accomplished as an individual. Sharing the gift of music is my primary mission in life.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A native of Barnaul in Siberia, Russia, and alumna of the College of Music at Florida State University, Oksana currently resides in Beverly Hills with her family. She continues to dedicate much of her time, music, and sales of CDs to charitable causes, including environmental concerns through Cool Green Fashion for Forests and children with cleft palate through Smile Train.

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize my teaching approach to each individual student. Having taught for 20+ years has taught me that every student learns differently - some do well with an easy approach, others with a more firm approach, while others with something in between.

I analyze each student's learning patterns, and structure their lessons in a way that gets the best results in the shortest time. I also have recitals so that my students can showcase what they have learned.

I am very patient, and also have experience teaching children with special needs. I aim at being not only the best teacher, but also a mentor to my students.

I prepare my students for Certificate of Merit and Competitions.
I'm also a proud member of Music Teachers of California.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baby Grand Piano, full size and mid-size keyboard, four acoustic guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, broadway, musicals, rock, new age.

Oksana is a wonderful teacher!

I played piano for many years growing up, but after taking a few years off, I recently started lessons with Oksana. She helped me get right back in and I am loving every lesson so much. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take lessons!

This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!
Contact me if you have any questions!

About Julia
Would you like a Try-Out lesson before booking a package? I understand the hesitation before making an investment, which is why I offer shorter 20 minute lessons specifically for hw help, test prep or just a compatibility check. Send me a message if you are interested - I will be happy to suggest a time frame best for your individual needs!

Whether you are interested in one lesson or a recurring schedule, student satisfaction is extremely important to me.
From my time tutoring at high school learning centers, college tutoring centers, and childhood elementary academies, I have implemented and developed my own method of teaching for my students, which includes personalized lesson plans, alternative views to math, as well as implementing a visual and contextual approach to unfamiliar subjects with the positive benefit of increasing the
student's self-esteem and confidence, and his/her ability to learn efficiently.
I do not only teach what you need to pass your next exam - I teach thoroughly and patiently with the goal of helping you manifest your unrealized potential!

With a Bachelors Degree in Physics and Minor in Math from Hunter College, Julia has over 9 years of experience tutoring students of all ages in all subjects.
Her clients find her patient, professional, courteous, and reliable.
Julia is located in NYC and teaches lessons online and over Skype or FaceTime.

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

I did regents prep with Julia for my high school honors physics class back in 2011. I am now back with Julia for my calc-based college physics course! Her teaching style saves the day and I'm already better understanding my course material. She goes over each topic with her own notes and examples. I do what she assigns me first before I move on to my actual hw, and it brings me great results. I feel extremely confident about my upcoming midterms. Thank you!!!

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!

*****
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!

I have been taking private lessons with Anna weekly for one year. She has taught me Russian from a complete beginner level. I've taken a number of language classes in the past (for other languages) and it's clear that Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is clear and gives excellent explanations, and is well-prepared for each class. She's also able to give requested ad-hoc lessons whenever I have specific questions, even without preparation. I would highly recommend Anna as a Russian teacher, whether you're in-person or online. I do both types of lessons with her and she is highly effective through both mediums. Last but not least, she's a great pleasure to be around, as a person!

I know very well what difficulties english and spanish speaking students may face to and how to avoid it. You will have an individual program, depending on what is your goal: to chat with your wife's mom, to read Dostoevskiy without dictionary or to negotiate with you business partner. I will show you that Russian is not so difficult as you may thought.

About Katya
I got my first students in high school when I helped teachers and gave classes to the kids from primary and since that time I've been teaching different people different things.
I graduated as economics specialist & teacher of economic theory
and it gives me a great knowledge of how to build classes what method to choose etc but I prefer to teach more practical and useful things.
I enjoy sharing things I know to help others live better simpler life. It's so exciting to see how my student starts practicing things she learnt and how it influences her life. Small excel tip helps to finish tasks in 5 minutes instead of hours of work. Yoga asana which gives you joy and balance for the whole day. Receipt of healthy no-sugar dessert which is more tasty than anything in Cheesecake factory. Small things change your life.
I'm friendly and ea
sy-going person and I know how to make classes efficient and interesting.

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

Conversation and culture are two things I enjoy when it comes to Russian. I am a native speaker of Russia. Because I have been working with people from many different cultures, I can give you unique cultural insights about Russian language and Russian culture.

About Elena
As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have taught grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking to students raging from 18 to 60 years old. Most of my current students are preparing to apply to colleges in English-speaking countries or are improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. Due to the nature of what I am doing now, I am very comfortable working with students who have academic and professional goals such preparation for TOEFL or IELTS, practice for business presentations, or technical writing. However, I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are s
et, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for the future, and proficiency levels. Additionally, I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.
