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!

Although we are only two sessions in, I have already memorized the russian alphabet and begun memorizing the pronunciation rules and new vocabulary! I feel more confident and optimistic in my ability to learn the Russian language now. Veronika understands my Russian-learning goals, which are to be able to freely travel in Russian-speaking countries, as well as provide eye care to Russian-speaking patients in their native language. We strive to accomplish this within 3-months-time.

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.
