I offer Russian language lessons for various levels and ages. I have vast experience in teaching and tutoring American high-school students and adults. Practical goals instead of time-consuming grammar exercises. I offer tutoring in everyday conversation, real-life topics, as well as English as a Second Language and TOEFL preparation.
"Outstanding Tutorial Skills - Bella will meet or exceed your highest expectations as a professional linguist and tutor of the Russian language. Her tutoring style and teaching skills are exemplary and have been a tremendous help to me in such a short amount of time. Her patience and perception of the individual student's needs is a key in the successful learning atmosphere. Bella sees the big picture and uses several different teaching methods that help and stimulate the learning process. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to learn or improve on their use of the Russian language for personal or business purposes. I have never had a more pleasing experience during one-on-one tutoring lessons."
"My long term aim is to learn to read Russian literature. Bella has started me off with children's classics which are just delightful. These Russian lessons are a total change of scene, and refreshing like painting a picture, or sailing on a lake. Bella is full of anecdotes which breathe life into the difficult parts. She is a pleasure to work with."
