Juliya paces her lessons well and is very attentive and receptive about if/when any confusion or questions arise. She is such a magnificent teacher, in fact, that in less than ten Russian lessons I've already learned the following:
The Russian alphabet, to count up to the thousands, read/write basic Russian, and to carry basic conversation - which is very impressive considering that I had little to know knowledge of the Russian language prior to our lessons!

She's a really well-organized teacher who also loves Russian literature, and she recommended the Living Language Russian set to me, which is going to be very helpful. She also recommended The Master and the Margarita, which I'm very excited to read. She teaches from the Living Language series, and it was very motivating to hear about her other students' success with the Russian language.

I have been studying Russian with Alisa for over a year now, and it has been such an incredible experience! Not only have I acquired a strong foundation of Russian grammar, but I have also been exposed to Russian language and culture through songs, books, movies, cartoons, and a wonderful trip to Russia. Alisa does such a great job explaining challenging concepts and making lessons fun and interactive. She is also incredibly kind and flexible.
