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

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!

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.

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 am gaining a lot from my lessons with Maria. She is helping me to play more musically, to really listen and feel the music. She is also helping me to learn technically how to achieve the musical expression I desire.
Evan
I have enjoyed my lessons from Maria immensely. After just a few lessons I have noticed significant improvements in my overall technique and comfort while playing. Her feedback during lessons has been amazing, not just shallow compliments but solid criticism that most teachers would avoid.
Irwin ..
Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.

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.

I went from knowing a very basic introduction to being able to ask for something, and knowing more words and it would take me ages to list off everything I've learned. Amazing teacher!"
