Hi! With me you will start speaking CORRECT Russian SOON! My first priority is to get you ready to communicate with Russian-speaking people, develop your spoken skills and vocabulary.

For 17 years I was working for a multilingual company: English, German, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive experience in teaching Russian. My students speak diverse first languages and belong to diverse cultures.

I set up and reach the real, necessary goals helping my students to integrate into completely unfamiliar language environment. I am an immigrant, I know what I'm talking about and I'm here to help you stop being deaf and dumb.
Also, my lessons will be very helpful for students studying Russian at colleges and universities.

1st Level - to set up the communication bridge with the Russian native speakers.
2nd Level - to let you understand what's going on around you and let people understand what is on your mind or what you need to say.
3rd Level - to develop your vocabulary, phraseology, formulation of phrases to make them be built in the way they are used in the current Russian-speaking environment.

I am a friendly, easy-going person. I like to teach, explain and help to reach the goals.
Depending on your actual needs I will teach you the language based on topics you are interested in, using dialogues and discussions.

Most importantly, I do not just speak Russian. My Russian is the pure literary language of Moscow.
Welcome to my lessons!

Michel is an excellent teacher especially in getting you to pronounce Russian language correctly. He lays an excellent foundation. He has good teaching methods, he is patient and kind. .

I purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.

Michael is a very personable and knowledgeable Russian language teacher. I am a native English speaker who does not speak Russian and he is helping me on a personal project that involves translating Russian poetry. He is very patient and enthusiastic about explaining the pronunciation and meaning of Russian words. Likewise, he puts great thought and preparation into our lessons and I feel like I am making steady progress. Would definitely recommend!

Michael patiently works with me on pronunciation in his own way. I used to learn pronunciation based on positions my mouth and tongue should be in. The result was bad. Now everything is different, lots of easier and better. Thanks a lot!

I study Russian at university. Working with Michael helps me better understand what we are taught in lectures. He can explain the sense of Russian words to make it easier to remember and use them. It speeds up my learning process and I always pass my tests perfectly.

I have been studying Russian with Michael for about a year. Now I understand my Russian-speaking employees quite well and they do the same. It helps a lot in my business. I am going to continue studying the language to use it in Russia.

As an adult, I always felt that I had missed my chance to learn another language. While I had a (long forgotten) Russian base from home, I was lacking everything from vocabulary to correct pronunciation. Michael has proved me wrong. He is a great teacher with a lot of patience. Thank you Michael!

I have spent several Years with Michael Learning the Russian language. I came to the states when I was very young. I picked up English instantly, while slowly forgetting my roots. When I became older I wanted to make sure I would not forget. So I started Taking Lessons. My vocabulary has vastly increased. Reading and writing in Russian, is my new passion.

You are a real friend!

Thank you Michael

Michael is a very experienced teacher. It turns out by itself that he encourages me to learn more and more at every lesson in addition to what we are currently working on.
