An amazing, precise instructor. Flexible in adapting to your goals and good at helping you analyze your weaknesses. Cannot recommend enough.
Juliet
I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. 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!
Jorge
Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town

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 ...

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 ...

"Roman is an extraordinary teacher. I was already bilingual and was therefore surprised and delighted to find that Roman was fluent—or very close to it—in several difficult languages. His near native grasp of English allowed Roman to guide me easily through the difficult early days of my instruction in Russian. Then, once I was comfortable with the basics, Roman’s method of teaching expanded to reveal qualities that are often lacking in language instruction. He was enterprising in the design of his lessons, patient when I stumbled and innovative when particular strategies did not work. Best of all, Roman went above and beyond my expectations by spending a tremendous amount of time tailoring the course of study to my particular learning habits. Roman is quite simply the best language teacher I have ever had."
