Private Russian Teacher

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!

Best Regards

Private Russian Teacher

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

Helped me a lot with pronunciation. At times he is hard to understand because of his accent, but I'm sure I am hard for him to understand as well. Still, I learned a lot and want to continue.

Daniel was extremely patient and methodical with his teaching and explanations. Not only did I learn a lot during his class, but I felt motivated to continue studying. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure I have the resources and support I need even outside of my sessions. Thanks Daniel!

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

About Katya

Hello future students :-) I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I love teaching, and have extensive experience teaching not only music, but a variety of other subjects -- I successfully homeschooled my own 3 children for many years, one of them bei

Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her.
Zachary E.
Maria is an excellent teacher for adults. I feel like there is the proper emphasis on building fundamentals while also focusing on what I enjoy about the piano (film scores). Maria is a kind and patient teacher who is challenging and still comforting for my beginner level. I would highly recommend her for any adult looking for lessons.

Anna is very organized, punctual and focused. She tailors our lessons exactly to my level. She understands what I know, don't know and what I need to work on.
Anna keeps our classes interesting. She introduces poems, videos, songs and supplementary materials to our lessons.
I highly recommend Anna to you if you are serious about learning Russian."

"Anna Novikova is one of the most affable and interesting instructors I have ever had, making Russian, which is normally a difficult and intimidating subject, something to look forward to every week. Personally, I would recomend tutoring sessions for the conversations alone, but she also is a very intelligent woman and competent instructor, and your understanding of Russian is sure to improve with her."

"Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work."

"Anna is a truly fantastic teacher who clearly loves what she does. Her enthusiasm and professionalism always inspire me as a student. I have had the pleasure of learning Russian with Anna for over a year now and can attest to the positive effect her lessons have had on my Russian proficiency. She always answers every question I have clearly and efficiently and provides helpful examples that reinforce the material we covered. During our discussions, Anna also explains elements of Russian culture and traditions which any serious student of Russian should know. Anna has helped me improve my conversational Russian, understanding of idioms and jargon, as well as professional and academic writing.

Anna shines as an outstanding teacher of Russian. She is engaging, very interesting to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone interested in improving their Russian proficiency should work with Anna!"

"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!!"

"So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey."
