Polina was absolutely perfect. She is exactly what I was looking for when I decided to find an online teacher. I'm so grateful to have found her -- very smart, very patient, encouraging, and organized. Makes me look forward to doing my homework and I can't wait for the next lesson!

Polina is really patent, helpful and has a great approach to students as a teacher. She has a great view on learning and the material used was well blended and easy to understand.
I had to improve my Russian skills for work and business reason. Just after a few sessions I felt already more confident with my language skills both verbally and in writing.
I highly recommend her as your Russian teacher as she is one of a kind with unique abilities to get you up to speed in no time.
