Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language specialist, as I have vast experience not only teaching, but also learning many languages. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have, and I am looking forward to teaching you!

About Katya K.

Hello future students :-)

I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I love teaching, and have extensive experience teaching not only music, but a variety of other subjects -- I successfully homeschooled my own 3 children for many years, one of them being a child with special needs. I can conduct lessons in English, Russian, and if necessary, in Spanish. Students of any age are welcome, from beginner to advanced. I use proven Russian Piano teaching method, with strong emphasis on incorporating correct technique and music theory, and focusing on the individuality of each student. Moreover, I believe that with proper guidance and motivation, any student can excel in any subject. I am looking forward to being your instructor! :-)

Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

I didn't think you could teach music online, but I'm pleasantly surprised by the progress my son made on the piano. He progressed in the songs he plays but also in the way he plays them, Katya manages to make him feel the music even online.

3 of our 4 kids have online classes (at home previously) with Katya and we are all delighted with her. Katya is a great teacher, the kids love her. She has the perfect balance between structure and patience, she is funny and demanding at the same time. The kids learn a lot with a great and adapted selection of partitions. She pushes them the right way, they feel supported and recognized in their efforts and achievements.
