Private Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and I have studied Russian since elementary school. I graduated from Chishinau university, where 40% of the courses are taught in Russian including Russian grammar and literature. I have taught private courses as a German teacher, to Russian speakers, and therefore I have experience explaining Russian grammar and conversation. I have a deep appreciation for Russia’s literary heritage and am constantly reading classic Russian texts.

I have experience teaching online Russian language to English students. My materials are adapted to English speakers and my beginner students are excited and able to engage in Russian small talk within 6-8 lessons. My lessons are efficient, well planned and productive.

I’ll teach you spelling and grammar rules, I’ll extend you vocabulary and we will always be practicing and reviewing previously learned material. I help encourage my students to study Russian. With me you will smoothly move from a beginner to more advanced.

An amazing, precise instructor. Flexible in adapting to your goals and good at helping you analyze your weaknesses. Cannot recommend enough.
Juliet
I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. She explained grammatical concepts in a way that was easy to understand and her use of gestures with certain words really helped me remember vocabulary words and pronunciation. Anna also provided numerous resources for studying Russian outside of lessons and had wonderful recommendations for Russian YouTube videos. Thank you Anna!
Jorge
Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town

Interactive lessons to help you speak with more confidence. A blend of culture and language to integrate the learning within the context.

If you are in New York we can visit Russian stores and events to have a more immersive experience. If you are interested in music we will add this as our subject to learn the language. If literature is your passion we can work on small stories or larger works of literature and discuss particular use of words and expressions.

The classes are tailored to your needs. Please tell me why you are learning the language in your introduction.

Private Russian Teacher

I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

I learned more with Victoria. I improved my vocabulary and speaking skills. She is attentive to the needs of the student and made our learning various. She is patient and encouraging. I highly recommend Victoria.
Deborah
Victoria has made learning Russian easy and enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable, well prepared and flexible. I had a job opportunity which was dependent on my learning conversational Russian. I almost passed up the opportunity because I didn’t think I would be able to master the language in the time I was given. Victoria was wonderful she was patient and encouraging and never let me give up. When the time came to qualify for my language exam not only did I pass with with flying colors I was offered a supervisory role in the company because my Russian language skills were so good. I highly recommend Victory
Rada
Can’t say enough good things about Victoria! She is tutoring my kids via zoom and it has been great. She is helping them with Russian and while I can’t be patient enough to teach them (I’m also Russian) she has lots of it and really enjoy spending time with them. I hear them laugh and talk in Russian and my kids really love her and her lessons. While it is so fun for the kids, the lessons are very structured and packed with new knowledge. We will be continuing our lessons with her!

"Anna and I worked together for several years as I studied Russian. Her lessons are always clear, interactive, fun and helpful. She incorporates classic literature, films, music and pop culture into her lessons so the students are learning not just language, but also culture and history. Every lesson with Anna opened my eyes to something new. Many teachers only teach grammar, but Anna takes a holistic approach and helps students with pronunciation, high-frequency phrases, colloquial language, listening practice, and much more. I highly recommend her. Russian is a difficult language and Anna is the ideal teacher to help you tackle it!"

I enjoyed the sessions with her because there was always a time to converse a bit in Russian on various topics that we chose, which helped me to practice my oral skills. Anna always corrected my mistakes in a very kindly way. She also helped me to expand a lot my vocabulary in Russian and to understand better Russian grammar. I truly recommend Anna's lessons!"
