Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

My name is Galina. I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach adults and children one-to-one, in groups or online.

Galina is an excellent instructor and also a lot of fun! I've really enjoyed my lessons and always leave with a lot more confidence in my progress in Russian. She really tailors the lessons to my skills and has been flexible as to what we study throughout each session. I highly recommend her as a teacher. We always have a great time and cover so much ground!

Galina was awesome!! She was able to teach both of my kids more in half an hour than I was able to teach them in 8 years. Even though I speak Russian fluently. One of them things!!!

I've had only one lesson, yet I am inspired. This is a real teacher of the Russian language. This is more than a person who just speaks the language. Already her technique as a trained teacher can be felt.
