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 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!

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.

Initially I was hesitant to do on-line, but Yulia had the materials and the expertise to get our daughter started learning mallets for band class in middle school. Our daughter really looked forward to her lessons. Yulia engaged with our daughter in a very fun and still professional way. Lessons were well-planned and they included a plan of practice for our daughter leading up to her next lesson. We are thankful that we found such a great teacher through TakeLessons!
