Teaching since:

Hi there and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yuliya, I'm a native Russian speaker, I lived in Chicago for a few years and just moved to NYC. Originally, I come from Saint-Petersburg, the cultural capital of Russia, where I earned my Master’s degree in Linguistics and Translation of English and Italian. After moving to the US, I started teaching Russian to adults and kids of different ages and loved it so much, I decided to pursue this path.

I always come up with innovative ways to help you learn. I motivate you by tailoring interactive methods to your learning style. I provide my own language learning materials as well as links to secondary materials like music, films, etc. I customize each lesson to your ability and interests.

Yes, Russian language is not one of the easiest languages to learn, but it sure is possible to speak it, and the process is so exciting, you will not even remember to be intimidated by its difficulty!

Anyone can speak Russian and I'm more than happy to prove it to you!

I’ve been studying Russian for more than 2 years with Julia. At first I didn’t know a word in Russian, absolute beginner. And now I’m enjoying watching Russian movies and series, reading novels and articles in Russian (still struggling with Russian classics though). This is all possible thanks to the most patient, kind and entertaing teacher Julia :) Спасибо!

Julia and I had weekly lessons to help me improve my Russian. She was punctual and organized and provided me with materials for study outside of the lessons. I would recommend Julia for beginner, intermediate and advanced Russian language lessons.
