Mrs. Aksana is a wonderful instructor! I would gladly recommend her to anyone wanting to enhance their Russian knowledge. She is very interactive and really gives you a complete understanding of the language. I have been meeting with Aksana for a few months now and I started off at the beginner level. I can really see an improvement in my understanding of Russian at this point in my studies. If you are looking to be fluent in the Russian language, Aksana would be a great instructor for you!
