Hi! I am a native Russian speaker with over 7.5 years of experience teaching in private and public schools, as well as private tutoring.

I also have a Master's degree in Education and several teaching certifications. I love creating my own fun materials and assignments to supplement textbooks and conversation.

I have taught hundreds of students within the past decade across all ages and levels. My experience includes test preparation (TORFL, DLPT), job specific preparation (military, government, defense contractors, business, IT), and general conversational Russian.

If you have any questions about my background or services please don't hesitate to message me!

I use Task-Based Language Teaching methods in my lessons. For example, a task could be interacting with Russian business partners, ordering food at cafes and restaurants, checking into a hotel, making a product presentation, communicating with a spouse’s family, applying for a job, enrolling into a Russian university, asking directions, reading Russian literature or news, etc. In other words, my classes are student-centered and designed in accordance with a student’s real-life needs. All activities (grammar, reading, speaking, listening, pronunciation skills) are used to reach a learner’s goal. I use a lot of authentic materials in my lessons: YouTube, social media, commercials, news, movies and various readings (including social science and fiction). I have fun, well-structured lessons and provide interesting and engaging discourse with each one of my students.

"So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey."

"Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work."

She really cares about her students' learning, tailors the lessons to individual learning needs, has a lot of interesting and helpful materials, and is incredibly knowledgeable about Russian and languages in general. Moreover, I was really nervous about speaking Russian again in 12 years and she made me feel incredibly comfortable doing so."
