I've been teaching English since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

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!

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.

I would highly, highly recommend lessons with Aliaksandra! 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.

Excellent instructor. Outstanding preparation. Developed a plan for the lesson and executed it very well with attention to my level of the language. Also, set goals and a general outline for the next lesson. Very friendly and supportive throughout the lesson.

Starting out as a complete beginner in French, Marie took the time to make sure the pace and style of tutoring was right for me. Now, I'm grasping the language quicker than I ever thought I would. Marie makes our lessons very comprehensive and fun, I would highly recommend her!!

With pleasure I recommend Ms Marie (as the children knew and loved her for the past two years) for her devoted work at Wee Care preschool. She was very supportive and she assisted me with instructional responsibilities during the last year. She has compassionate attitude to the kids and strong understanding of child development plus to her excellent communication skills.
