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 am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

About Zhao Yang

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

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.

*****Your progress begins as you are reading this intro*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program: 

1 Making the right choice requires two things. First, collect the info:  Watch my videos, read my profile and my reviews.  I provide a well structured curriculum,    various sets of input and comprehensible grammar sheets which are all included.  Second, try a few classes and see if you get the feeling "I like this guy and I trust he can help" because YES: chemistry is important since it creates a special bond that will help us achieve our goals.
2 Always record your sessions so you can stay focused during your interaction with the teacher because that’s when the real learning is happening. After you can watch it and take notes. This approach has proved itself as the most efficient way to improve retention. All those tons of material will be well organized in your notebook and in your head. It’s like you are creating your own textbook which ...

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 ...

"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!"

"I have been learning Russian from Prof. Aksana for the last 6 months or so. Aksana is a truly gifted teacher and has absolute mastery over the language. She really tailors the lectures around your need as a student. She is super rigorous in her teaching methods and is really focused on letting you - the student - grow into the language. She constantly reinforces various concepts with historically accurate stories behind the words, events that triggered changes to the language etc. This truly adds another dimension to her teaching. She is super invested in her students and really strives to make sure that you understood the various nuances in Russian grammar.

I'm truly lucky to have found such a great teacher to serve as my guide in my exploration of the Russian language."

"I had Anna as my Russian tutor at UCLA for just over a year, and visited her session for an hour every week. She is incredibly friendly and personable, and goes above and beyond to support her students. During tuition, she would help us both with keeping up with the course content and with exploring the language outside of it. Learning Russian can be daunting for students who have no cultural or linguistic background in it, but Anna's demeanor and approach helped me a lot with developing confidence and building on my strengths. Meeting weekly with Anna is one of the things that I will truly miss once out of the Russian department."
