An amazing, precise instructor. Flexible in adapting to your goals and good at helping you analyze your weaknesses. Cannot recommend enough.

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 ...

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 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
Rada
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!

"Aksana is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with me when I do not understand something but she will work with me until I am able to grasp the concept. I am currently taking Russian classes at a University but Aksana has been the most valuable asset when it comes to being able to learn the language properly. She is able to clearly explain the rules of the language and it is obvious she is very knowledgeable pertaining to all subjects in Russian. Without Aksana I would not feel as comfortable with my ability to learn the language. Our weekly meetings have helped me to not only speak but understand the language and culture more. I have been with her for about 4 months but look forward to continuing my lessons throughout my college career! She not only helps me during our lessons but also provides me with many other resources to continue my studies. I am very thankful for all Aksana has done and continues to do for me! By far the best Russian teacher I have had."
