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.

Students will achieve their goals to speak Russian. You will be led step by step and that will go the easy way. Nothing is impossible so are the foreign languages. Make the first step and I'll do the rest.

About Sergey

As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books

Hi! I am a native Russian speaker with over 7.5 years of experience teaching in private and public schools, as well as private tutoring.

I also have a Master's degree in Education and several teaching certifications. I love creating my own fun materials and assignments to supplement textbooks and conversation.

I have taught hundreds of students within the past decade across all ages and levels. My experience includes test preparation (TORFL, DLPT), job specific preparation (military, government, defense contractors, business, IT), and general conversational Russian.

If you have any questions about my background or services please don't hesitate to message me!

"Давайте говорить по Русский"

I bet I can help you learn the cyrillic alphabet in less than 30 min! You will be able to read the phrase above after one lesson! How cool is that?

Because of its expressivity Russian is one of the most spoken languages in the world. As a native speaker I will be happy to help you get started with great conversational skills along with fun facts about the culture, habits and other cool things about this country. After all Russia is the land of great writers, philosophers and poets, whose most intimate ideas are so much better understood knowing the language.

Thanks to Dmitri I learned how to read Russian in 20 min)) Now he is explaining to me the structure of the language and I've already learned some key phases! Dmitri, Thank you for opening the door to this beautiful language!
Milena F.
In the very first lesson Dmitri was able to fix my breathy singing voice issue once and for all! I am so happy with him and could not recommend him more!
He really speaks several languages and has a vast knowledge not only on technique but on repertoire and style.
Most importantly is that he is patient and so encouraging.

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

It provides all the expected positives of learning from a tutor and more. Roman himself is a pleasure to learn from. Both his lessons and his disposition reflect his extensive teaching experience.
