I am native Russian professional teacher with official recommendations (published in my personal site) and internationally respected reputation. I work with the students from many countries as online so in a real contact; as in groups so one-to-one tutoring. I specialize in adults, adolescents (students of secondary, primary schools). My expertise is language for everyday life, business, travelling, work, preparing for exams, etc.

About Kristina T.

Hello! I am 32. I am highly qualified and certified teacher of Russian as a Foreign language (RFL). My competitive advantage is that alongside with my Masters Degree I have an international license of Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language (TRFL). And 10-year experience of teaching Russian specifically to foreigners (not only to native Russians in their local schools). I’ve been working with foreign students from many countries. I’m Master Degree of Education, specialization is Teaching English. I have internationally verified qualification TRFL and TESOL. Studied in Russia, USA, UK.

1) I use scientific approach that covers and activates all 4 aspects of speech - speaking, listening, reading, writing. Also my own method, described in my Master's thesis, that is an individual selection of an active, relevant vocabulary for each student separately. You don't learn anything abstract and unnecessary. Curriculum depends on your type of thinking, speed of perception, strengths in learning, training goals, your requests, etc. As you are sure that you are unique individual, so you can be sure that your curriculum is absolutely personalized and customized.
- I don’t adapt you for teaching methods; I adapt teaching methods for you.

2) Massive speaking practice in classes. Everyone has abilities to speak foreign (Russian) language. You also have these abilities. I pull them out of you and activate. Results are visible quickly. From 4-6 lessons step by step you start speaking in Russian.
- It’s not a magic - it’s my professionalism.

3) I explain complex things in a simple and comprehensible way. You will easily understand logic of Russian language, rules, grammar so that you can formulate your own phrases and sentences.

4) Native speaker + excellent qualification + huge experience = professionalism.

I will be happy to see you in my classes and help you reach your goals!

Kristina was preparing me for an interview for employment abroad. I successfully passed the interview and got a job I wanted. My endless gratitude her for help and patience!

RFL classes from Kristina are always full of fun and needful knowledge. Many thanks to her for subtle patient approach. I’m not an easy student, I can keep on my own comfortable pace if i feel comfortable with teacher. She uses may be some methods to endear a person, but it works with me. I work abroad, need practice language every day. I can objectively express my own mind, talk to my clients directly… But my most meaningful achievement: I’m not fraid talking to strangers in russian anymore

Kristina was the best teacher I have ever known. I started studying Russian with her to prepare for an interview in foreign company. I can’t even describe how much I was afraid. She gave me all necessary knowledge. All classes we were drilling variants of possible questions and answers, grammar, new words... I successfully completed the interview! Now I work in an international company. This is my best compliment to Kristina and all her efforts! Many many thanks!

I am very impressed with Kristina's professional talent and enthusiasm. She is not just a formal instructor, she is a mentor who confidently guides you in the dark, makes lessons as comfortable as possible, explains everything as simple language as possible. I really liked the process, the atmosphere in class and my visible results.

Let’s be honest) we all are lazy when studying, and i wasn’t exception) But when I started learning with Kristina I saw she was so respectable and serious in her work that I couldnt look like dunce. She motivates me a lot, I make efforts a lot, and gain a lot. Speaking in Russian is my favorite part of class)

Kristina is always well-prepared for classes, strict, result oriented. I didn’t have lesson when she wasn’t concentrated or worked halfway. She always knows what resources and exercises to provide me. It’s everytime different, it doesn’t let my brain relax. My speaking and comprehension result are obvious

Teacher Kristina teaches our work group in our enterprise (me, my deputies, and assistances) Russian since we should often fly abroad and speak with our partners. Kristina is very professional punctual and experienced. We all like her methods, sometimes we work hard sometimes a bit relaxed in fun activity. We drill conversations, make a group projects, make public presentations, work out a good pronunciation and many many things. We are reaching our goal lesson by lesson with her. Our respect and appreciation to our dear instructor.

Kristina is outstanding tutor that I have ever met. I improve my pronunciation due to her delicate guidance and corrections. She helps me enrich my Russian vocabulary – we discuss many social and routine topics. She is so tolerant of my slow pace and encourages me all the time. Many thanks!

Kristina has been teaching me the Russian for 4 months for my business concerns. I don’t have time to learn by myself. Kristina selects and gives me everything I need and use. I see my language progression so my endeavors and money aren't in vain

I signed up for Kristina’s online classes about month ago and immediately saw her highest professionalism and rigorous attitude to her work. Initially I thought I would just upgrade my beginning Russian language skills a little for conference business trip to Russia. But now I plan to continue classes with Kristina further, as I see my real and quick results. Thanks to my teacher for her work!

Teacher Kristina is very communicative, it’s very easy to find a common ground with her. She really clearly explains hard grammar. My level was the lowest and there was a fear that it would not work, but with this nice instructor, everything turned out to be much easier and faster than it seemed. Just for a month we decently expanded my vocabulary. A wonderful, communicative, intelligent teacher, native speaker! My greatest recommendations!

I’ve been learning RFL from Kristina for about 1 year. For first months, I got as much knowledge and awareness of grammar, vocabulary and standard phrases as I didn’t gain for 1 year in a language course. It was extremely productive training. We modeled real situations, trained real predictable dialogues, learnt fluent reading and correct pronunciation. I upgraded my speaking and writing skills for work incredibly. I can easily compose email in Russian not using translating App. Now I’m in maternity leave, and as soon as it ends I intend to come back Kristina’s classes again. Looking forward to it!

I like that Kristina distinctly differentiate curriculums and its content from student to student considering their goals, requirements, interests individually. It's not stereotyped teaching everyone by the same books and topics. She literally selects individual training plan, vocabulary, collocations etc that are really useful and might be used right now immediately in a social life. I supremely respect Kristina’s experience and teaching sense. I recommend her!

I I applied Khristina for teaching service after I explored a lot of reviews for her. Never regretted. She gives me genuinely what I require. My aim is talking well with my Russian-speaking fiancée as we love each other and wanna feel and understand each other better. I’m learning speaking a lot, new lexicon much, and writing a little to send messages my groom. He often says me about my progress, and I’m so grateful Khristina for that. She's worthful teacher and the best I’ve ever had! Grand merci!

Kristina is a great instructor! I enjoy our classes as she can balance between orderly drilling new subjects, casual discussions (in Russian) and fun. Claases are not exhausting but efficient. Every class little by little I build my language skills and hope to move on.

Kristina’s ads promise you can start speaking from 4-6 lessons. I started from the second one. The first class I couldn’t believe that would be able and was shy. In the second one I got something. Fantastic. I am definitely not gonna give up.

We learn Russian as the Second from teacher Kristina with whole family. I, my husband and son (10 y.o.). Husband learns for work because he often communicates with Russian-speaking clients. My son and I study for ourselves. We plan to go to St. Petersburg in a year on vacation. My son likes that Kristina does a lot of training games and exercises so and he never feels bored. Alongside, Kristina doesn’t “baby-talks” to him; conversely she treats him like equal partner. That’s nice! About me, I notice my conversational progress. In classes, I like us talking some routine, daily topics that I can get into every day. Presently I’m looking toward to reach level B1. Russian language of course is hard, but with Kristina it becomes more understandable and well-learnable.

I started learning Russian for private needs to communicate with my future bride (Russians-peaking woman). Lessons with Kristina are very funny. We discuss social casual dayly things. She completely understood my goal and language needs. I learn only vocabulary and tipics I need. Teacher doesn’t overwhelm me with “junk” that I will never use. I’m hihly thankful Kristina for help and professionalism.

I hve practiced RFL classes with Kristina for several months in 2019 and can surely say Kristina is true master of her job. I see advancement in my Russian speaking, reading and listening. I highly recomend her for everyone who needs learning Russian as a second language. She’s truly talented teacher. Unfortunately, I was forced to pause studying since my hard business trip(( But i’ve reserved and paid package of our classes in advance as I’m going to keep them on and go ahead towards my goal! See you soon Kristina!

Russian as the second language was required for communication with my Russian colleagues. Im very satisfied with Kristinas work. She is intelligent, can explain new material quite comprehensbly. She has a serious attitude to her job, always being well-prepared for class. She could answer and clarify any question regardless in class or off class by private chat/ Kristina obviously loves her job and esteems her students.

Kristina is extraordinary educator!!!
She succeeded in what the teachers before her couldn’t. I am 55. After some attempts to cope it with other tutors I applied to Kristina as the last person without any hope. But after 3 or 4 classes I found out I understood Russian speech, I heard it, could recognize some phrases, could repeat… I was in glee! It was incredible start of my long and fruitful cooperation with Kristina! Presently I’m able to talk simple daily topics, listen to some Russian songs, understand grammar a bit. Of course it’s not easy way expected. But I’m happy I’ve finally found my own well-treating, responsive, qualified teacher who could discover approach to me. I’m so proud of my success and so brilliant teacher!

I’ve been learning with Kristina for more than 1.5 years. It was so comfortable and convenient to work with her. She is compliant, loyal - we could reschedule time of classes easily as she always treated my unstable, intense work schedule with understanding. She’s never made me feel silly in classes when I couldn’t cope with training task quickly. It’s a real luck to find a teacher who treats you like a partner – equal and respecting, but not like mentor who you are feeling pressed with. I liked Kristina’s classes a lot and particularly her mature, businesslike approach to students!!!

Excellent teacher!)) She explains topics very simply and clearly. She motivates me. Friendly and patient teacher. I study what I really need in daily life and can already use it in practice. Kristina much encourages me for my results, and I’m very grateful her!)

Hello! I'm university student from Finland. I've been learning with Kristina for already 2 years as I need Russian for my future career. I have tried classes with several teachers before. But the greatest and the most resultful partnership developed with Kristina! She is very patient, objective and qualified! In her classes I always feel confident and comfortable even making some mistakes. I love Kristina's classes as I'm seeing real results and language improvement. It's the most significant that I need! She is a great professional!! Thanks her!
