Hello, Yekaterina has been excellent with my 11yr old son. My son is currently learning Spanish. Learning a second language can be challenging. Yekaterina has great teacher abilities, she is able to teach my son the Alphabet, pronunciation, verbs, nouns, adjectives, Masculine words, Feminine words, conjugate verbs etc. She is very patient and has a nice approach to push your abilities in learning! Give Yekaterina a try you will be impressed!
Great teacher. I'm looking forward to many lessons with her. I'm sure with her help, I'll be fluent in no time. Thank you! Enjoyed our first class.
If I could give Yekaterina 100 stars, I would gladly do it! She has a bright and friendly personality, very wide span of knowledge and is very patient, especially with this 64-year old engineer who wants to learn the Russian language! She uses real texts (not screen shots from somewhere) and I felt very much at ease with my current limits in pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and cultural knowledge.
