Hi, my name is Maryna!
.
I'm from Crimea. I've been living in the USA for over 10 years, which helped me develop a near-native proficiency in English.
This is very helpful when it comes to grammar explanations and helping my students understand the subtleties of meaning.
.
I'm a full-time educator. I learn about latest language-learning tools and methodologies on a daily basis. I have a degree in teaching foreign languages, and I started teaching over a decade ago. I have taught intensive professional courses and I have developed textbooks.
.
I specialize in adult learners of Russian and English, as well as my 4 year-old son, who is learning both:)
I study several foreign languages myself, so I have endless empathy for my students' efforts and successes.
.
I will taylor our classes to your needs and interests.
You can sign up for 30-, 60-, 90-, and 120-minute lessons.
.
30-minute sessions are a new option.
Here is why I added this option:
- They could be done in the chitchat format to maintaint and improve your conversational skills.
- They could be conducted in a Q&A format, if you need specific questions answered.
- They are essencial if you need help with a self-study plan and periodical feedback on your self-study progress.
.
Please, feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you!

Привет, меня зовут Марина!
.
Я из Крыма. Я живу в США уже больше 10 лет, и за это время мне удалось заговорить по-английски почти в совершенстве. Это очень облегчает объяснения грамматики и нюансов в значении слов.
.
Я постоянно вращаюсь в сфере образования и стараюсь одной из первых узнавать о новых инструментах и методологиях преподавания. У меня красный диплом и больше 10 лет опыта в области изучения и преподавания иностранных языков. Я преподавала профессиональные курсы и разрабатывала учебники.
.
Сейчас я специализируюсь на преподавании русского и английского языков взрослым, а так же моему четырёхлетнему сыну, который учит оба языка:)
Также я сама изучаю несколько иностранных языков, поэтому ратую и радуюсь за успехи своих студентов, как за свои собственные.
.
Я разработаю программу для вас на основе ваших нужд и интересов.
Вы можете выбрать уроки по 30, 60 или 90 минут.
.
Я совсем недавно добавила 30-минутные уроки. И вот почему:
- Они могут проводиться в формате непринуждённой беседы, если вы хотите поддерживать и постепенно повышать свои разговорные навыки.
- Они могут иметь формат "вопрос-ответ", если вы ищите ответы на конкретные вопросы.
- Они могут быть полезны, если вам нужна помощь, чтобы правильно организовать своё самообучение и получать периодическую оценку своего прогресса и рекомендации преподавателя.
.
Не стесняйтесь написать мне, если у вас есть какие-либо вопросы. С нетерпением жду ваших сообщений!
.

Very professional teacher, very passionate, and very charismatic!! I was particularly impressed by her understanding of grammar in Russian, and ability to explain it from the view point of a non native speaker

I am Marina’s ESL student, and have been for a few months now. She is very organized and meticulous, her classes are very productive and her teaching techniques are very effective. She explains the material both in English and Russian, which helps me a great deal to understand, memorize and feel it. I am absolutely happy with her as my tutor, and very thankful to her.

Maryna is my colleague at FSI, and since I have been working with her at the Russian section teaching Russian language and culture, I have heard only the best things about her from our students as well as other teachers. Her contribution to the success of her students and the Russian section overall is tremendous! We are still using her amazing grammar as well as reading and speaking materials which she developed and shared with the students and her colleagues.
She is always full of creative and useful ideas about methods of teaching, and her passion for teaching Russian is obvious to everyone on a daily basis! Students love her enthusiasm, sincere care and support in learning this challenging language. She is an expert at developing new methods, special drills, fun exercises and providing her students with all best and necessary materials and resources. And of course she is an excellent communicator and lecturer who would explain even the trickiest parts of language with ease and comprehensively.
Sometimes I wish I was her student myself!

I really enjoyed the lessons and I found them very helpful in a way that they clarified many many doubts I had on the matter, which alone with be very difficult for me to find the answers by myself.

Very knowledgeable and willing to design lessons suited to best meet your needs. I was trying to reach a certain score on a proficiency exam, which I recently did after finishing my tutoring with Maryna. She also provides flexible hours and can meet you in person or conduct tutoring solely online depending on your schedule. If you are looking to develop your Russian language skills I highly recommend tutoring with Maryna.

I have worked with Maryna and she is an amazing instructor. She tailors teaching to her students and it seems that she creates materials for each one of her students every time! She is very organized, patient and supporting. If you are still looking for a teacher... this is it! You found her!
