Private Russian Teacher

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

If you are looking for a fun, flexible, and engaging tutor, I am perfect for you.

I provide a variety of activities so you will never get bored. For example, I will use fun warm up tasks, games, interactive conversational lessons, and quizzes. We will use authentic materials as well. All materials are provided. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all ...

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.

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!!!

We have been with Tatiana for past 3 years and she teaches my both kids. She is very knowledgeable , flexible and very interested to teach kids. I would recommend her highly to any one interested in learning violin.
Tommy
Tatiana is an excellent instructor and I am a 68 yr old violin hobbyist who is trying to learn classical music and folk music to eventually become a part time teacher myself. She is very patient and pleasant and I am a former teacher myself in grades 5 - 9. I believe she would be good for any age(s) ! She is great with technique and knowing what the student wants to accomplish and is interested in with their musical interests She is just a very pleasant person to know and get guidance musically from! I recommend her highly!

Hello, I’m Natalia! I was born and raised in Russia but currently live and work in the United States. I have 10 years of teaching experience at the university back in Russia and now I’m working online educating students all over the world. I’m very dedicated in helping my students achieve their language goals. I focus on conversational language because I believe this is a primary language function. On our lessons we'll learn grammar constructions, listen to audio files, read texts and do lots of talking! Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about my lessons and hope to meet you soon!

Natalia is an excellent teacher. Her classes are energising and fun. I also really like the meditation at the end, it leaves me feeling very relaxed and centered. She lets you know how far to go in a pose if you have injuries/weaknesses, which is really helpful. She will re-position you to help you get that extra boost from a pose and has helpfully re-positioned me when I’ve over-extended. Highly recommended!
Brandan
Wow I really Enjoyed my session with Natalia this evening. She is such a delight to work with. She is very funny and humorous as well. While we were doing our poses, she was very supportive and very patient with me as well. Looking forward to having future sessions with her.
Tyra
Natalia has enthusiasm for teaching and was prepared for my session her class always feels very thoughtful and I love the way that she brings yoga philosophy into each class. This was very important to me because I am new to yoga and I felt very informed. THANK YOU NATALIA YOURE AMAZING !

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.

They say Russian is a difficult language, but I say that you just need a well-trained, native-speaking teacher to help you understand it.

Language is not only about practice and grammar; It's about history, culture, people, and, most importantly, having fun while learning! I am thrilled every time I witness my student's progress, large and small; from when they begin to make the tiniest connections, then start to grasp larger concepts, and finally develop a firm command of and truly fall in love with the Russian language.

I, like many modern Eastern Europeans today, was born in a country that no longer exists: the Soviet Union. We are all tremendously glad times have changed since then but nonetheless, we have been irrevocably shaped and molded by the world we found ourselves growing up in and around. There are many culturally relevant expressions, references, and jokes I could teach you that would build immediate rapport with both Russians and those from other post-Soviet ...

"Aksana is exactly what I hoped for in a Russian instructor. She has helped me fine tune my Russian skills and understand and practice difficult grammatical concepts that have gone by the wayside since studying Russian in college (3 years ago), and improve my conversational fluency. The lessons are always challenging and fun! She customizes the lesson to my interests and is always prepared, patient, and kind. Not only did Aksana come to the lessons with native fluency, a linguistics degree, and many many years of experience teaching Russian to English speakers -- she has supplied a fantastic textbook, and the links to hundreds of online Russian-learning resources to supplement my learning. I highly recommend Aksana as a teacher - she will meet you wherever your language skills and needs are!"

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!"
