Anna is an enthusiastic, encouraging, and an inspiring teacher! Her lessons are engaging and delivered with respect. Her students would add that Anna is ready with a smile, a kind word or two, and adds a splash of humor to their time together.

A great instructor. Trained in linguistics in Russia and very personable. What's most important is that she has multiple teaching methodologies and adapted to how I learned best.

Anna is one of the few Russian teachers that I have been happy with. She is very willing to help others learn her native language and always has a great enthusiasm. She has been my conversation tutor now for three months and I always leave confident in my Russian skills and definitely learn new colloquial and every day phrases/expressions.

Long Beach, CA

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Привет! Russian is my first language and it has a very special place in my heart. I love it for its emotional charge and incredible poetic expression.
After many years of helping my friends who study classical voice, I found new interesting and simpler ways to teach this language

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem Kolesov and I'm 22 years old. I'm a second year Masters student at Roosevelt University majoring in Violin Performance.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in Voice, Violin and Piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I had to go through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach
my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my grandparents.

Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

Miami, FL

Fluent in Russian (Native speaker), excellent writing skills, creative writing

About Katia
My background and experiences are an eclectic combination of music, audio engineering, and television production. Born in 1987 in Moscow, Russia, I started piano at the age of 5. At the age of 19 I graduated from one of the best musical colleges in Russia (Gnesins State Musical College) with the piano/music theory degree. Few years later I got degree in Audio Engineering with the concentration in Music Recording and Production. I have 5 year experience of teaching students 6-25 y.o.
In Russia, as musician and audio engineer, I was involved in projects ranging from a live jazz concert with Herbie Hancock to television broadcasts including the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. I chose to further expand my experiences by studying abroad. After being admitted to NYU and Johns Hopkins, I decided on the Middle Tennessee State University three ye
ar Master of Recording Arts and Technologies program. I enjoyed studying under the incredibly talented people there and have had opportunity to work with Alexis Gomez (a young talent and semi-finalist of the American Idol show), to work at the 2016 Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, and to direct a production of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. After graduation in May 2017, I moved to Miami where my husband lives and looking forward to meeting new people here and teach piano again in my spare time.

If you choose me as your teacher, you will get not only piano lessons, but also a more broad view on interconnection between music theory, audio and physics of sound. For young students, I offer learning through games and singing songs during the breaks between practicing. I enjoy teaching kids and I am a very patient person.

Harrisonburg, VA

I have been teaching Russian for more than fifteen years at all levels from middle school to graduate students and native speakers. I incorporate a variety of materials from
contemporary Russian culture (or other areas of content based on student interest) in order to create a relevant and authentic language learning experience.

About Rachel
I have a PhD in Russian and a BA in Spanish. I have taught both languages at many levels, from middle school through to graduate school. As a college student I lived and worked in Moscow, Russia as a security guard at the US Embassy, where I learned lots of unusual vocabulary in Russian related to items that could be picked up by the metal detector. I have also spent time studying and conducting research in Siberia and in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have lived, studied and traveled throughout Mexico, and taught public school Spanish and French for two years prior to graduate school. I am originally from Virginia, and before I started studying Russian in high school, I was planning to be a professional classical pianist. I live in Central Virginia now with my husband and our adorable but very demanding English bulldog, Lou. I am a member and
the Conference Manager for the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, and have taught Russian at the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, Northern Virginia Community College, and Ferrum College. I regularly publish and present research at conferences in the field of Russian language teaching as well. I am a kind and merciful teacher, but require commitment and dedication from my students. You WILL learn from me, but you have to work too!

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.
