An amazing, precise instructor. Flexible in adapting to your goals and good at helping you analyze your weaknesses. Cannot recommend enough.

I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. She explained grammatical concepts in a way that was easy to understand and her use of gestures with certain words really helped me remember vocabulary words and pronunciation. Anna also provided numerous resources for studying Russian outside of lessons and had wonderful recommendations for Russian YouTube videos. Thank you Anna!

Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town
