Welcome to my Russian Language Lessons!

I am a native Russian speaker, born in the former USSR. I have PhD in physics and vast teaching experience in Russian language.

One sage said “As many languages you know, as many times you are a human being.”
Knowledge of language is not only understanding during listening, speaking with good pronunciation, writing without mistakes. It is an immersion in another world. I can help you learn that wonderful world. Note that not only Russians speaks Russian. The Russian language is used by all nationalities of the former USSR, like Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Ukrainians, Tatars, Belarusians, Bashkirs, Chechen, Armenians and so on . It means that amazing world is wider than you can imagine.

By the way I can also help in math, physics, and Uzbek.

About Bakhram

I am here to guide you through your path of achieving mastery in the Russian language in the most efficient manner, online or in person. Contact me to schedule the 1st lesson for free. About me: I am a native Russian speaker, born in the former USSR. I have a Ph.D. in physics and vast teaching

His teaching methods are great. Very clear and concise. Doesn't waste your time explaining meaningless background information and always lectures with the intent to help you understand Russian in a speedy manner. Recommending him is a no brainer.

“Hi, we just wanted to leave you a quick note to say my husband and I are thankful for your patient teaching. We’re so glad to see our son is progressing well in class with you. We look forward to a positive working relationship for the remainder of the school year!”
Manoj Gurung
One of the best Russian language teachers that I know of. “It is clear that our child’s Russian language skills have developed considerably while under your care. Thank you for helping him to develop the skills and confidence that he will carry forward into the next school year.”

Music is all about you. My piano lessons are dedicated to you, refining your abilities, sharpening your ears, and incorporating enhanced levels of creativity. With a background also in composition I have a wide experience in not only performing but writing music, which gets me in close and personal to the inner workings. I have a wide range of knowledge in history and repertoire to engage students outside the realm of normal and often overplayed repertoire.

Especially during major world events, the need for art and mediums where humans can express their emotion are of vital importance. "Practice makes proficiency” - this is true for music as well as life. Mistakes are inevitable but it is mistakes that allow us to grow and achieve greater things. I will patiently and effectively work with you to refine the mistakes and achieve proficiency in your journey through music.

I am extremely personable and am an excellent listener. I graduated from the Hartt School and went to the New

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

I am a voice teacher and professional singer with over eight years of experience in teaching and more than fifteen years of experience in live performances.

My studies were centered in modern music, and I identify myself especially as a Jazz and Tango singer. Nonetheless, I have taught a broad range of music genres to my students.

My mother tongue is Spanish, and I also speak English and Italian fluently. I was born in Argentina and I am 34 years old. I studied at the "Escuela de música de Buenos Aires" (EMBA) the bachelor in professional singing/musician. I started teaching in Argentina. After a few years as a voice teacher, I had more than 32 private students a week of all ages. Afterwards, I moved to Switzerland with my husband, where I lived for more than four years and gave lessons for two years. Me and my family moved to Princeton 2 years ago and I am now working as a teacher on two prestigious academies in New Jersey.

In my lessons, I work hard to provide a respectful and ...

Possessing a graduate degree in any of the liberal arts means one can write. It is one of the only verifiable perks, marketability speaking, the liberal arts can boast. I can help a child from roughly age ten with the basics all the way up the the graduate student attempting to master a double thesis piece. I am much better if you come to me with a specific problem as opposed to "make me better." In the latter example the goal may not be attainable to any significant degree, but I digress. If a writing problem exists, I promise I can solve it; or at least figure out how to solve it and point you in the right direction. I can provide behaviors in your academic travails that will help throughout your academic career. Do you keep a personal annotated bibliography? Do you read other than school materials? Can't write if you don't read.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, wi

Very knowledgeable and personable. Able to communicate more complex concepts in an easy to understand manner.

First off. Just want to say that we had to cancel our first session. However, I really like this guy because he had kept it real and set it straight on the reason why the session was cancel. He was very sick that day and he didn't want to be involved with the session not being at 100%. Respect! I wouldn't have wanted him not being at his best either. Takes alot of guts for a person to confess that. I really appreciated the honesty because that explains how passionate Randy is about the craft.
Second of all, when we did our first session, I had to deal with a rough technical patch of trying g to join in for the session. He had no problem helping me with this technical glitch rather than allowing TakeLessons (who I was unable to reach because of matainace issues), to handle it. He helped 5he TakeLessons team. A plus Randy! Though I had to finally use another device to finally join the session, Randy was still willing to have patience and help me with the tech problem.
Lastly, Randy brought a warm feeling to the session and yet sincere. He made me feel welcomed, which opened me up more during this session. This helped because I am uncomfortable with improv but want to get better. He understood this and gave a real honest approach. Also, he informed me that we were going to get a gist of my performance level and work from there. Furthermore, we were going to ease our way into improvement. This gave me alot more balance than other improv classes. He is even willing to give me a little homework that I can practice in prep for next week.
Randy is very encouraging and I enjoyed our first session. I'm exited for next week!
