Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Yekaterina. I am a language expert, polyglot, native Russian speaker, and a performing concert pianist. I received Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Soviet Union with emphasis on classical piano performance and pedagogy, and later advanced my studies in University of Cape Town, South Africa. I am an expert in languages, pedagogy and child psychology, with over 20 years of teaching experience.
Being a native Russian speaker, I learned English and Spanish (as well as Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) from the ground up, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts, that worked very well for me. Little things ythat ou can do to bring the language into your everyday life make a big difference in how fast you start speaking... these little things accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I will be ...

She's always very clear with instructions and takes time to explain things to you when you need help. She is also very patient when you need help understanding grammar and learning to pronounce things correctly.
Sabrina
Yekaterina can hear and point out a wrong note in a chord without even seeing what I am playing. Her hearing ability is very impressive. Apart from that she is very structured, and and gives very clear instructions on what needs to be done in every peice. She types it all in a chat after every lesson, so one knows exactly what to do to from lesson to lesson, and keep track on what has been hapenning and the progress.
Paula T.
Ykaterina is a professional teacher. She has a plan for every lesson and doesn't waste time with chit chat. I have learned so much since working with her. I am so very happy I found her. I highly recommend Ykaterina.

Teaching conversation and translation at native and highest levels. I am a native speaker of the Russian language, a professional musician with perfect pitch and thus no accent in my speaking. I am also equally fluent in English and have been hosting radio programs spanning over 10 years. I have given talks in both languages internationally and have been published by Carol Publishing as well as Genet Publishing in newspapers, on line, in print both soft and hard cover available in Barns and Noble, Amazon and anywhere fine books are sold.

If you are learning to speak in the Russian language or if you are improving your skills, if you are a singer working on enunciation and the feeling of the language for writing, speaking or singing - you have come to the right place. My family of professional musicians have helped orchestras and choir in the production of Alexander Nevsky on the big screen in concert of the Eastman Theater that to this day continues to illicit fond memories ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Reading,
Writing,
Grammar,
Conversation
Language development,
Pronunciation,
Social Language Use.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.

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.

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.

Paul D.
I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

"Aksana is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with me when I do not understand something but she will work with me until I am able to grasp the concept. I am currently taking Russian classes at a University but Aksana has been the most valuable asset when it comes to being able to learn the language properly. She is able to clearly explain the rules of the language and it is obvious she is very knowledgeable pertaining to all subjects in Russian. Without Aksana I would not feel as comfortable with my ability to learn the language. Our weekly meetings have helped me to not only speak but understand the language and culture more. I have been with her for about 4 months but look forward to continuing my lessons throughout my college career! She not only helps me during our lessons but also provides me with many other resources to continue my studies. I am very thankful for all Aksana has done and continues to do for me! By far the best Russian teacher I have had."
