I don’t have any degree in teaching the Russian language, but I am native Russian speaker and can help you to start to learn the language or just refresh your knowledges of the language. I teach at my apt in Washington DC, but have flexibility to work in alternate locations or online. I charge travel fee $20.

About Yulia
Born in Russia, I studied at Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory (Master of Arts/Voice) and am a graduate of Bern Opera Studio in Bern, Switzerland (Master of arts/Opera). For 3 years I worked in a children music school as a voice teacher and have taught privately.

"Yulia is a special and unique artist, able to hold her own on any stage in the world”  (Daniel Rigazzi, Stage Director at Metropolitan Opera in NYC).
 
 My debut as a professional opera singer was with the State Theater Bern, Switzerland in 2010.
I have also performed with Theater Biel (Switzerland), Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Opera Ischia (Italy), Dicapo Opera Theater NYC, Great Moscow Hall, Vocal Productions NYC and Opera
Camerata, Smetana Hall in Praue, Carnegie Hall in NYC and many others.
In 2014, I made my debut at the Carnegie Hall with Steven Crawford, pianist and
assistant conductor of Metropolitan Opera.

In January 2018, I performed at Smetana Hall in Prague, Czech Republic with conductor Alfredo Sorichetti and New World Symphony Orchestra. In April 2018, I performed soprano solo in Brahm’s German Requiem with Easton Choral Society in Easton.
In June 2018, I successfully performed World Premier of the Oratorio for the Fallen by E. Dubois in Saint-Clair in France. And in July 2018, I performed at the Rossini Festival “Case Sonore” in Monteleone, Italy with renown Rossini bass Bruno Pratico and pianist Carlo Pari.
Recently, in December 2018, I sang Soprano Solo in Christmas Oratorio by Saint-Saëns with Easton Choral Arts Society in Easton, MD, and had my debut at Teatro Annibal Caro in Civitanova Alta, Italy with maestro Alfredo Sorichetti and Orchestra Sinfonica Puccini.
Some of my future performances include US-premiere of the mono-opera by Hubarenko “The Love Letters” at Carnegie Hall in New York (July 2019) with maestro Yuriy Yanko, “Ah, perfido” by Beethoven at Vienna Konzerthous and Classical Music Concert at Vienna Musikverein in Austria (May 2019), Elekta's role in Strauss' opera Elektra at the Salzburg Great Hall of Mozarteum in Austria (May 2020) with conductor Ernest Hoetzl and Thueringen Philharmonic Orchestra, and many other various operatic and concert series performances in USA, Italy, Austria, Russia and France.

Yulia is an amazing teacher and great singer. She is very passionate about teaching and my sessions with her are fun and very educational. She is quick to pinpoint issues and rectifying them using different techniques to attain correct voice. For a complete novice in singing, I have learned a lot in a very short period, thank you Yulia. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Yulia to improve my vocal technique and coach my Russian repertoire. Yulia knows about technique and music more then many known teachers! She helped me a lot and I would definitely recommend her as a vocal instructor if you are just starting to sing or if you are an advanced singer.

About Annika O.

Close
South Boston, VA
View Full Profile

Russian teacher with 20+ years experience teaching and tutoring Russian. The goal is for students to be able to actively use the language and not be afraid to experiment. The focus is on meaningful conversation and reading authentic texts. Classes are creative, fun and held to 95% in the target language.

About Annika
My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I first came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing.

A true global nomad, I have lived in Germany, the U.S., Mexico and Russia and have traveled extensively. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French and Russian, I have been instructing students since 1989 in various countries of a variety of ages in a multitude of informal and formal settings.

In 1990, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1995, I completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education/Teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school
setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools, and the government.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Aliaksandra. She put me at my ease while challenging me. The one on one is exactly what I need to improve my ability to use the language. While I have been studying on my own for quite awhile, there is no substitute for having to actually use the language. On top of all of this, Aliaksandra is personable and fun.

Long Beach, CA
View Full Profile

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Learn Russian from an experienced interpreter! I can teach you all the tricks to make learning this complicated language much simpler. I believe learning any language should be fun and exciting; I'll introduce you to amazing musicians singing in Russian and the wealth of Russian literature - classic and modern. Or, for the savant, we can expand your vocabulary, diving into advanced texts together. Hope to see you soon. Счастливо!

About Jean-Paul
Home-grown Mercedian back after many adventures! I'm eager to share my knowledge of Russian, French and the world around.

I began my career as a linguist in Russia, learning the language intensively on the street and in the classroom, while also teaching English to businessmen. Through connections, I was able to dabble in legal and academic translation.

I continued my education in France, mastering the language while also getting to sing in classical choirs and play oboe in wind ensembles.

I have most recently completed a teachers' exchange program with the French Ministry of Education. I taught 5th thru 12th grade in two schools in beautiful Lyon, France. I gave evening lessons to engineers and logistics specialists wishing to improve their English. Adapting to different teaching styles needed for each age group was challenging challe
nging but I have always enjoyed working with such diverse groups of students.

The many challenges I have faced have molded me into a resilient teacher. I plan lessons carefully but am quick to adapt to students' needs. I will be glad to help you meet your goals with your language-learning.

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

About Irina
I am a patient and sociable person who loves to teach. I am enthusiastic about my work, and am always thrilled to see the success of my students and share in their success. I was born in Uzbekistan in a Russian family. I graduated from the Music Conservatory of Uzbekistan with a degree in stringed instruments, as well as from the University of Foreign Languages with a degree in English, I am a classically-trained and educated Cellist with deep experience playing with Symphony Orchestra’s, Chamber Orchestra’s, Ensemble’s, Quartets, and Solo. Currently I am working in Loudoun symphony orchestra and Pro Arte chamber orchestras. I have been teaching both Russian and English to children and adults since 2012.
