Trying to learn more Russian before travel to Moscow for 3 weeks. I learned much from Alisa, who had incredible patience and was always able to make her schedule work. I very strongly recommend her without any reservations.
Alisa is an extremely proficient tutor of Russian who not only understands the Russian language as it compares to English but also the art of how to get her students to grasp the knowledge that she is giving them. Her sessions are very demanding and can be difficult, but the time spent with her is always guaranteed to be quality time. Alisa is a tough teacher with high standards, and she will relentlessly pound information into your head. Sometimes I left after a two hour session feeling as if I had been hit by a train, but because of it I picked up on Russian extremely quickly, and now after learning Russian for less than a year I can hold a decent conversation at a dinner table. Many Russians that I have spoken to have been very impressed with both my proficiency and accent, and have even told me that i currently speak with better grammar than some other Russians they know. Alisa not only helped me to understand Russian language and culture, but also helped me to fall in love with their cuisine. She makes an excellent Borsch, and will not tolerate you leaving her sessions hungry. You are guaranteed to leave her with a full mind and a full stomach.
