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.

I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

I am glad I chose Shelley as my daughter's teacher. She seems to be very knowledgeable. I think my daughter will learn a lot from her.
Cami
I have been taking lessons with Shelley for almost a year and she is fantastic! We used to meet in person and have been now meeting online. I have noticed improvements in the quality of my voice and strength of my head voice (something I mentioned that I wanted to work on).

As a student with previous musical training, I appreciate that Shelley is knowledgeable in music theory and vocal technique.

Shelley's personality is also amazing. She's very kind and easy to learn from, providing effective and actionable feedback to aid a singer.

So, are you ready to become bilingual?

I have been teaching Spanish, my native language, for the past 11 years.
I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I moved to Mexico to get my Bachelor’s degree and then to US to earn my Masters.
My passion has always been learning new cultures and expand my knowledge.
I currently live in South Florida, where I found the richness of cultures and the need of learning other languages, and that led me to teach my passion – Spanish.
The method I provide is customized and catered to the needs/goals of each of my students.

The lessons include:
-60-minute lesson.
-Online materials.
-PDF book- all levels (if needed).
-Additional materials (grammar resources).
-Additional reading materials.
-Homework: grammar exercises, listening, writing.
