About Aliaksandra
Hi, there! My name is Aliaksandra and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and have loved helping my students communicate in the language they want, make new foreign friends, and travel and study abroad. I went to Minsk State Linguistic University (Republic of Belarus) and earned a Master degree in Philological Sciences in 2003. I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

My daughter Kira, who is 10 now, has been taking French lessons for almost two years with Alessandra. I can’t be happier with her progress! And I certainly can’t be happier with Aleksandra, who is not only a professor and can teach adults and teachers, but also has an amazing way with children!
My daughter loves her and always is looking forward to the next class, responsiby does her homework and able to teach me a few things :)
But what I truly appreciate as a parent as well, is that she is never late and always makes the day and time that has been arranged, which is very important with everyone’s busy schedules.
I would highly recommend Aleksandra for teaching children and adults!
My best friend is French, and I had Aleksandra over when my friend was visiting, my friend was impressed with her fluency of the language.

Anna is one of the few Russian teachers that I have been happy with. She is very willing to help others learn her native language and always has a great enthusiasm. She has been my conversation tutor now for three months and I always leave confident in my Russian skills and definitely learn new colloquial and every day phrases/expressions.

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.

Whether it's tutorial help you need, translating assistance or just want to have fun learning a new language, Maria guarantees superb results. Большое спасибо и удачи с Bашим русским!

About Maria
Maria was born in Moscow, Russia. Her mother was a piano teacher and started Maria playing at 4. She studied at the legendary Moscow Conservatory with Victor Merzhanov. In the US, she won the Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Young Artist Competition and debuted with the Symphony performing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto.

The Russian School of Playing has produced some of the world's greatest pianists. This method is fun and lays down the foundation for a relaxed way of playing, which gives confidence and technical security, while enabling one
to produce beautiful "singing" tone on the piano. This helps students of all ages to take their piano-playing to new heights.

My company does business in Russia so learning the language is important for me. I tried programs like Rosetta Stone but progress was slow and frustrating. Learning from a native speaker like Maria is the best way I have found. Being able to receive answers to questions quickly with explanations of the culture along with the language is invaluable. She works at my pace and tailors lessons to my needs. I am finally learning to speak, read and converse in Russian . This is the only real way to learn.

Great teacher. She assessed my level at the beginning and has given me plenty of work to improve my piano and voice. She's classically trained, and that definitely influences her instruction and approach. Her understanding of my goals and flexibility in lessons makes the lessons personal and individualized.

I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In short, I will do everything I can to increase your rate of language acquisition.

It goes without saying that I love to teach! I have an easy-going personality and a positive attitude. Learning such a beautiful and multifaceted language as Spanish will be fun with me. I love travelling, I have hosted many exchange students, so I have developed good communication and creativity skills.

I will encourage your interest and curiosity into the Hispanic culture by using amusing topics during the session, which will automatically improve your experience.

I am able to communicate with students
at a very personal level . I am very passionate and enthusiastic to get them to learn. I will also promote study habits.

I have a lot of nice material and is interested in what people have to say and their needs. I am friendly and kind; I try to correct students making sure they don't feel embarrassed. I makes people feel comfortable, and encourages them to participate and learn, -even the shy ones. I enjoy the class as much as you.

I have been taking on-line lessons on and off for several months with this great Russian teacher. I did have some basic knowledge of Russian at the time. My teacher, Alexandra, has been great. She allowed me to go at my own pace and review material, if needed. I work in the medical field, and I received material and assignments related to this area, which was helpful..The most productive part of the the lessons were the times spent on conversing back and forth.

Having lessons on-line does take some self discipline, especially if you are working full time. However, it does encourage regular review of Russian so that you are ready for the next lesson. Alexandra is a GREAT teacher!!

Excellent tutor, teacher, friend! She is honest, patient and nonjudgmental. Her experience is obvious because she takes care to only speak with Spanish that you know and is very attuned to non-verbal cues. Her knowledge of Spanish grammar and cultural nuances is great not just because he speaks perfectly but she can articulate her knowledge well.

She is genuine in character and her goal is to help you learn Spanish at your pace. I have learned a great deal in the 9 months that I've been working with her and can't imagine that I would have gotten here as quickly with any other teacher.

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

About Liudmila

I have performed in over 4,000 concerts and have had the privilege of performing as the Principal Harpist at St. Petersburg Opera Theatre and Mariinsky Theatre in Russia.

I enjoyed my first harp lesson with Liudmila so much! She is a very sweet lady, and a very patient, knowledgable, and professional teacher. She taught me the correct posture and hand positions at the first lesson. I was struggeling with the hand positions first, but she didn't mind to explain them to me over and over again. She also plaid some tunes to me, and I could tell that she is an awsome harpist. I am very glad that I can learn from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn from a professional harpist.
