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.

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

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.

Aksana is amazing! She is super patient and knowledgeable and she has taught me so much in so little time. I’m impressed with how much I have learned in only 5 classes. I will continue classes with her so I can become fluent in Russian.

"I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months with this great Russian teacher. I did have some basic knowledge of Russian at the time. My teacher, Alexandra, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to this area, which was helpful..The most productive part of the the lessons were the times spent on conversing back and forth.

Having lessons on-line does take some self discipline, especially if you are working full time. However, it does encourage regular review of Russian so that you are ready for the next lesson. Alexandra is a GREAT teacher!!"
