"Victoria is a Wonderful Teacher!"
Tré from Ventura, CA on 4/2/14
I've been learning Russian with Victoria for a while now and she is a really great tutor. She is very patient and understanding, and always does a good job at thoroughly explaining the material. The virtual classroom she uses is not the traditional way of learning a language, but it is a lot better in my opinion. It allows a lot more freedom to do various types of activities and provides a more fun learning environment. Exercises are much easier with this method and Victoria always comes up with different ways to keep it interesting and exciting. With Victoria, learning is much more pleasant because she uses a variety of different games and tasks to make the learning process much less boring and tedious than the more traditional methods of learning a foreign language. It is great having a teacher who is not only passionate about the language, but passionate about teaching as well. She makes learning Russian very enjoyable and as accessible as possible. Though the language is a little difficult to learn, her positive personality and great composure make me feel very relaxed and encouraged to want to keep learning more. I would definitely recommend her to anyone because I have learned so much since beginning my journey of learning another language with her!

Victoria is patient and thorough in her explanations and provides a lot of support and study materials outside of class. She has been good to work with, and has a good system for tutoring anywhere through Skype and a shared online "classroom" workspace, which let me continue getting help from her even after arriving in Russia.
"Can't Go Wrong - Highly Recommend Victoria "
Imran from Niles, IL on 3/22/14
So I've been working with Victoria for a few months now and I couldn't be happier with her as a tutor. She is always professional, punctual and very patient. Victoria comes to every lesson prepared with a daily plan and her online interactive classroom setup is wonderful and keeps me engaged.
I would highly recommend her to all friends and family. If you're looking for a new tutor, you can't go wrong with Victoria!
"Patient, effective, and easily reachable!"

We started with Victoria with a trial lesson to which my 9 year old daughter responded positively, so we set a weekly schedule and it has been a positive and rewarding learning experience for our daughter since then! She enjoys learning and is fully engaged during the class even though it is virtual because the age appropriate teaching approach Victoria takes keeps her motivated and fun. She really enjoys the cartoons that Victoria uses during the class.
Victoria never rushes and is very reliable and takes extra time, if needed, to finish up or clarify a topic better. One one interaction offers my daughter more freedom to ask questions without feeling conscious.
We hope to continue the class with mutual need and flexibility.
Thank you, Victoria. My daughter really started to enjoy math and has more confidence in it now!
"Fantastic and patient instructor!!!"
Shanda from Herndon, VA on 4/11/13
I have been working with Victoria twice per week for about one month. Not only does she work around my crazy schedule, but her teaching style and strategy is impeccable! I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a DEDICATED and CARING instructor when learning something such as another language because it requires an endless amount of repetition and patience. Victoria has both those qualities.
I am preparing for a trip to Russia in the late summer and she has PERSONALIZED ALL of my lessons so that I am able to learn the necessities within the short time period that I have. Not only does she focus on vocabulary, but she also incorporates conjugations so that I am able to use and understand conversations. She has also already taught me to read in Russian!
Victoria uses several online tools to make sure that you understand and are able to further practice what you have learned throughout her lessons. She also uses an interactive tool during her lessons so that both parties can participate in the lesson, and you are visually and audibly reinforced with examples and activities.
Her pricing is also incredibly fair!!! She is trustworthy and will never waste your time or money, both of which can be sources of stress and uncertainty when conducted in an online environment.
I would absolutely recommend Victoria to EVERYONE that is seriously interested in learning the Russian language. Learning a second language can be really intimidating and frustrating, but Victoria makes the journey fun and interesting. Sometimes I don't even realize how much I am learning until I am in actual conversation. I even had my first dream in Russian!! (Nothing too complicated, but I am still incredibly thrilled)!
"Outstanding on line learning experience."
Barbara from Hayward, CA on 3/23/13
I decided it is time to learn a language. I chose Russian as my third language. I was immediately contacted via email from various tutors offering their service. I was very impressed with Victoria C’s teaching background. I truly enjoy ON LINE TUTORING with Victoria for several reasons: Flexibility of class schedules fit my busy working life, Convenient (don’t have to leave my house) and Technology used. In addition, Victoria’s teaching ability is amazing. I recommend on line learning for busy professionals.

"Language and Culture"
John from Pacific Grove, CA on 3/3/13
She is a qualified tutor that helps to explain required cases for phrases and also shares cultural knowledge during lessons. Her English is exceptional and she has helped me through difficulties in grasping certain concepts while studying Russian.

Thank you, John!
You are my very special student, because you study Russian at school and your success is evaluated by school teachers. I am happy that you appreciate my help and that you decided on lessons in Skype and Virtual Classroom though we live very close to each other. Hope to see you sometimes in my Sunday Russian Club.
