"Effective, personalized approach to teaching"
- Kristin, Pottstown, PA on 4/15/14
Alexandra offers a personalized experience in a comfortable and encouraging environment. Her approach to teaching the Russian language is extremely effective and focuses on developing fundamental grammar concepts, which serve as building blocks for future lessons. Alexandra recognizes that simple memorization is not conducive to actually understanding and applying the content. The quality and structure of her approach is what makes her so essential and it absolutely cannot be found in a textbook.
She incorporates a wide variety of resources into her lessons, using everything from books, to interactive websites, and online videos. Within her overall technique, she offers flexibility by effortlessly catering to the student’s individual learning preferences. Her passion for what she does is readily apparent and benefits me greatly. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning the Russian language.
"Fabulous teacher "
- Inessa, Doylestown, PA on 9/16/14
Alexandra is a terrific teacher. My 6 and 9 year olds were taking Russian lessons with Alexandra. She is warm, caring, very patient and very clear in her instruction. The kids loved her! She was also very fast to respond by email, and flexible with scheduling. You can not go wrong here, she is great!
"Very good and flexible teacher"
- Michael, Cheltenham, PA on 9/3/14
Alexandra is a real teacher rather than someone just doing this part-time. She has a sophisticated method and is able to adjust to different types of students very well. Strong recommendation.
"Excellent teaching skills"
- Olga, Conshohocken, PA on 4/27/14
Alexandra is patient, knowledgeable, and intuitive in teaching our daughter to read and speak her native Russian. Coming to the U.S. from Russia at the age of four, our daughter had limited language skills. After spending three years in an American school, her English is on par with native speakers but her native Russian has not developed even though we speak it in our home. After a short time with Alexandra, our daughter's Russian has improved dramatically and she is speaking with no accent as Alexandra focuses particularly on correct pronunciation. We could not be happier with her progress. On top of it all, our daughter can't wait to take her lessons because Alexandra makes them interesting and fun as well as effective. We cannot recommend her more strongly. If you want your children to learn quickly, correctly, and have fun doing it, Alexandra is the ideal choice!
"She is AWESOME"

I am currently working with Alexandra and she is incredibly thorough and patient in teaching me how to learn this language. I highly recommend Alex if you are serious and willing to put in the time and effort to meet your goals. She is not only a fantastic teacher but she has taken the time to get know me and she cares!

It has been a pleasure working with Alexandra. She is patient and supportive. She also has a very strong understanding of Russian grammar, which is very helpful for learning Russian. Tapes don't do it! Alexandra also does very well at communicating concepts in a way that helps you learn.
"Wonderful tutor :)"
- Irina, Newtown, PA on 10/4/11
I learned so much Russian with Alexandra. I think she is the best Russian tutor I would have been able to find. Not only does Alexandra care about you learning Russian she will actually care about you as a person! she will work with you when you are having an off day.It is a great way to learn Russian! I definitely recommend Alexandra if you want to learn Russian.
"Excellent falls short "
- Susie, Hammonton, NJ on 4/2/11
Alexandra is an amazing tutor!! She explains the material in a way which is easy to understand. She makes sure that I completely understand a concept before moving on to the next which is really helpful and prevents me from feeling "overwhelmed". Her approach to teaching a language is very practical and realistic. She is easy to understand and very pleasant to interact with. I am very happy to have found her and would highly recommend her to anyone with a desire to learn Russian. It's only been a few lessons and I feel as if I have already made great progress!! If you want to learn the Russian language in a comprehensible, systematic and fun manner, then you must contact Alexandra!! :)

Alexandra is AMAZING! She always comes prepared and always provides additional learning resources whether it be through funny youtube cartoons, personal stories/culture or extra handouts and websites to help with the learning process. She also is tailoring the classes and lessons to my goals (being able to speak with my girlfriends parents) and my learning ability. I never feel like I'm learning "useless" information like I did when trying to learn from books or audio cd's. She always keeps me informed if there is to be any change in schedule and is flexible to my own. I really appreciate the time and effort she puts into teaching me Russian and I HIGHLY recommend her!
