My son enjoyed his first lesson with Matthew. Matthew related spelling to music (drums) which made spelling more interesting to my son. He's looking forward to his next session. Thank you, Matthew!

I really enjoyed my lesson with Michelle. She is a great tutor with her special skill. The only reason I did not give her a 5 starts at this time is because I want to finish more sessions to truly give her a 5 star from bottom of my heart. I would love to continue my journey with her and I am faithful I will improve quickly with her help.

Maryna is very good at integrating conversation with subtle changes to start working on different cases, but in such a way that it is overwhelming or even obvious that she is doing so. She is great at teaching Russian and is very passionate about helping others achieve their linguistic goals. I've enjoyed working with her and have gained a lot of insight to the structure of the Russian Language as well as gained confidence with my speaking and writing abilities. Her approach to incidental teaching provides a very natural learning environment that I think is critical for people who are finding it daunting to learn such a beautiful but complicated language. :) I highly recommend her!
