I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and have always had an immense love for languages and cultures of the world. I found that diving into a new language and culture is one of the most incredible, joyful, compassionate and meaningful paths to discovering the world. All the while, rediscovering one’s own unique interests and curiosities. It’s always surprising and rewarding in ways we can’t foresee.
As a longtime, professional independent instructor, I never imagined where my languages and creative work would lead me and the wonderful folks I encountered along the way.
It’s been a journey of incredible variety.
I had the amazing opportunity to create and teach the first Russian, French and Italian classes to children in public elementary schools all around Oxnard. I was invited to teach French and Italian classes in the Ventura College Community Education, Russian immersion program for the U.S. Government and English to a team of international entrepreneurs and their families.
This work and my students inspired a joyful dedication to creating live video classes. I discovered that it’s a special, interactive and awesome platform into the world and I love seeing it grow.
I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your language journey.
Wow… Incredible first English class with Zhenya!!!! I'm sincere impressed and touched. I never before write long review, but my teacher, this wonderful platform and future wonderful students deserve.
Zhenya is treasure as teacher. One of kind... She's so gifted, kind, so clear and just... AWESOME. Her love for language (she's amazing at multiple), music and learning unbelievable… They combines with her absolute professionalism, skill and dedication to students who dreams of learn or sincere need support. She actually professional private teacher for such many years, something I think rare. She just new to this unique company and look forward to work with students here.
Also, this was my first video class. I didn’t know what expect and was bit nervous and excited. I'm impressed by this wonderful platform. I just wanted to give chance and is so simple, professional and creative.
And in only bit over half hour, I left so refreshed and inspired from Zhenya, Jane. I still not believe. She communicate warmly with me before about my journey with English and my wishes. She came prepare with amazing, fun dialogue about travel for us to share and enjoy. From there, we learn SO much. She meet each student just where they are, even if they not sure how to begin. I think it’s so special. She knew what I wish to learn as we go along. Today was my pronunciation and idioms, she teach me fun tricks to remember forever and I just feel so comfortable and free speak and read. She so patient and creates so warm atmosphere. The best part, she so cares and believe in you and her creating amazing learning experience together.
Cannot describe how I can't wait till next class!!!! I so inspired to study and enjoy learning between classes even with my so busy life. Thank you, dear dear Zhenya and the guys in Take Lessons. Unbelievable.
