Private Russian Teacher

I enjoy teaching kids Russian language. I think, that children benefit from personalized private lessons much more, than from groups lessons given in schools, where kids have not only different level of grammar knowledge but also different level of understanding of the language.

My lessons are very interactive - we are not just reading and writing, but we play games, we solve puzzles... Of course, it is all in Russian :)

About Galyna

Hello! I teach piano and flute. I can prepare for competitions and exams, give knowledge of music theory, or teach music just for fun - for your, or your kid's enjoyment. My students performed in studio recitals, successfully passed Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations,

Ms. Galyna is very nice and patient in teaching, no matter the kid is a quick learner or a slow one. Her piano studio is a wonderful place that provides a good learning environment for students.
Julia
My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!
Maria
My daughter took lessons with Galyna for five years. At the age of seven she was true beginner - no experience with any musical instruments. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons! She ended up playing in a band in middle school and I attribute her success to Galyna's lessons. Galyna is professional, friendly and flexible. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher.

Добро пожаловать!

Russian language spoken by over 250 million people. It is a beautiful language that grew and developed as loyal companion to the unique Russian culture. It's development was shaped with by some of the best writers and poets in the world, such as Pushkin and Tolstoy.

I believe that teaching a language without a well integrated cultural component is akin to crime, as doing so will deprive the student of opportunity of obtaining a gateway to understanding Russian culture... and perhaps a "mysterious Russian soul."

Unlike other subjects, where a curriculum is closely followed, Russian lessons are vibrant and are designed to promote fluency in conversation reading and writing. Poetry, videos and music are are integrated into the lesson plan - making learning efficient and fun.

Aleksander helped my son prepare for Regents Exams in Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig.), English and SAT. The results were spectacular. He graduated high school with 98% average in Math and English. He scored above 1500 on the SAT and was accepted into a school of his choice with a scholarship. Aleksander guided us through with college application process, helped fill out FAFSA, and helped my son select a major he is happy with. Great instructor! Great person!

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.

Aksana is a great teacher, and she provides good resources to study from, like videos, songs, and short stories, and it’s all really helped me build my Russian skills. I feel more confident in my speaking then I ever have. She is reliable and good at answering questions, and she really works with you to help understand grammar, or pronunciation.

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!"
