Interactive lessons to help you speak with more confidence. A blend of culture and language to integrate the learning within the context.

If you are in New York we can visit Russian stores and events to have a more immersive experience. If you are interested in music we will add this as our subject to learn the language. If literature is your passion we can work on small stories or larger works of literature and discuss particular use of words and expressions.

The classes are tailored to your needs. Please tell me why you are learning the language in your introduction.

My first Russian lesson with Anna was great. She was very patient with me, and went at my pace, which is much appreciated. I like that she introduced the idea of learning a bit about Russian culture, and she sent me an article which I look forward to reading.

Anna was helping my 11 year old improve his verbal skills while we were on vacation for 5 weeks in NYC. Instead of sitting in a class room the lessons were spent at different places in the city and Anna prepared interesting themes for every lesson that let my son both practice speaking a lot as well as hear many interesting stories of NYC. In addition to being a great teacher Anna is also an excellent guide.

Before I met Anna my writing skill was not that much good. Her teaching style is the best way to learn. She encourages me to write more and share her knowledge. I really learned a lot from her. Anna is a disciplined professional. She's a dedicated trainer, very patient and offers great techniques and great advice. Anna is a warm and caring person.
