Hello, students! I am native russian speaker and professional russian and german language tutor. I have Master`s degree in linguistic (German, Russian) and translation.

If you want to improve your language skills or start studying Russian(German), you will definitely like my lessons that are individually tailored for each student according to the level and interest and aimed at your success!

I offer such language courses:
General Russian (General German)
The general Russsian (German) courses are for all levels.
For people, who are starting from zero to those who want to improve their knowledge of the language for different motives e.g. work, study, tourism, socialising or simple interest.
Lessons are customised as much as possible to the specific needs of the individual student, focusing on the areas of greatest difficulty (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.).
Lessons are organized to stimulate the curiosity and interaction with the student. The strong emphasis placed on conversation and interesting, up-to-date digital support material (texts, explanations, exercises, films etc.) make the lessons enjoyable and most importantly effective.

Russian (German) for specific purposes
The objective of these short, focused courses is to help the student rapidly acquire the vocabulary and phrases to operate in different areas e.g. tourism, hospitality, retail, law, job interview preparation.

Business Russian
The Business Russian courses are dedicated to companies, employees, professionals and people looking for work who need to improve their level of Russian for business needs.
In these classes we will work on communicative skills, to enable the student to communicate successfully in negotiations, interviews, meetings and presentations. We will also work on the written communication such as correspondence, creation of CVs, letters, reports, e-mails.
I will provide you with the language skills you need to feel confident and fluent in all the typical business situations. We focus on topics and supporting materials which are specific to

Wonderful online german classes. A lot of fun, and well prepared. Yana has an easy going teaching style, and is fun to chat to. She sets ample homework as requested. We often review material from previous lessons to ensure concepts, grammar and vocab have been learnt. Also Yana gives some great resources to help learn the language.

I am very happy with the Russian lessons I`ve had via Skype with my tutor Yana.
Each lesson she introduces a new topic in a well-planned way with the appropriate vocabulary and with special emphasis on pronunciation.
The lessons are very much as I requested and are proceeding at a pace commensurate with my ability to assimilate the content.
The lessons have been very instructive, at the same time relaxed & fun, so that I have no hesitation in recommending Yana as a Russian tutor.

I took lessons at Yana's home for long period. After half a year learning Russian, I can speak this language on intermediate level and understand very good native russian speach. The lessons are interactive and interesting. Yana has excellent ability to explain grammar in fun way and teach new vocabulary topics. I can advice her lessons to everyone!
