Teaching since:
December 2002

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.



Till then,

Zhenya

Few years ago, when I was attending LACC and taking grammar classes I thought that my knowledge of Verb Tenses was good enough . I used to write huge essays included a lot of pages. Moreover, I was getting straight As for all the essays that inspired me. Maybe my grammar was really correct, but I’m not sure that I expressed meaning correctly because I didn’t feel and recognize many nuances of Verb Tenses. Since , I started to take your classes I have understood how Verb Tenses are diverse , how flexible meaning they have in order to show our emotions.
Some people say it”s not necessary to use all V.T. Simple Past , Present and Future it”s enough for communication with each other, but I’m not agree with them. Using all V.T. we have made English more rich , natural and beautiful for that reason our life become jucier.
I never had been so fascinated by studying English grammar before I met you 
I have appreciated your teaching full love . You’re always ready to share your skills with the people who want to improve their knowledge. I’m happy that I found you!
THANK YOU MY DEAR Zhenya !!!!!!!! 

Zhenya is treasure teacher. She's gifted, kind, really cares to learn about you even before first lesson. Just... AWESOME. She has so dedication to us who dream learning language or really need support in it. She goes beyond... And make you feel you learn and open the world together with tool of language and learning unique ways. This my first advance language class and I love this video platform. Thanks guys!
Already in our first class, we start with creative dialogue and learn a lot in pronunciation and great idioms. She meet each student just where they are! No matter I was so busy in my profession, I couldn’t wait for each class!!!!
In studio or live video classes, with Zhenya always unique and so rewarding.

I have been a student in Jane’s Italian community college class, in her small group instruction, and in her private tutoring classes.
She has an excellent command of various languages, and her love of teaching shines through each lesson.
In a very warm and caring manner, she guides and nurtures us through the wonderful world of language acquisition!
