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.

Hello! My name is Lyubov and I am your Russian language tutor! I am a native Russian speaker from Sochi, Russia -home of the 2014 Winter Olympics. I have lived, studied and worked in the United States for the past 20 years. I have also been teaching Russian online to high school students through the North Carolina Virtual Public School system for 7 years. I have tutored and given private lessons in English and in Russian since 1996.

I am friendly, patient and very understanding of the difficulties with learning a foreign language and working on pronunciation. Proper pronunciation is very important to gaining confidence in a new language and in being understood. As a foreign language teacher and learner, I take building your confidence in learning a new language very seriously. I look forward to our lessons together!

I originally hired Lyubov to work with my girls on improving their Russian language skills. After a while of having her teach them, with no warning at all, she canceled all their classes. I still to this day don't exactly know why she did that. At the minimum, she should have explained her reasoning.
Ty M.
I would like to say that Lyubov has made taking Russian lessons very fun. She is always very professional and prepared with many different ways to help you learn. When she gives a lesson she will often times send links to free websites that will assist in helping you learn. I highly recommend her if your trying to learn Russian!

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!

So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

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 ...
