About Maiya

Greetings Prospective Student,

If you are interested in learning Russian, you came to the right place. I am Russian born and lived there until my graduate college years.
I speak, write and read Russian and also understand the American culture because I am an American citizen.
Learning languages is important as it opens new circuits in the brain. It improves cognitives skill and overall brain health and function. Even if you already know two languages, imagine what adding a 3rd language will do to your brain. I have known people who were in their 60s who started learning a language and improved their brain function considerably.

My approach in teaching Russian is to immerse you in the practicality of the Russian language. The goal is to make you be able to communicate your ideas in Russian. People say that it is a difficult language. Every language seems difficult, but it only seems so. There are ways to make it easier and learnt faster. In this day and age, time is limited. I treasure every minute and focus my attention to improve my student's ability to understand and speak Russian. I have taught several pastors and executives Russian. In one case, pastor of a local church wanted to go to Russia to preach there and I prepared him quickly and efficiently. Another person, a Music Director of a very well know orchestra, requested me to teach him Russian so he could understand the opera music scores and the correct pronunciation of Russian words.

Having also studied languages, including Japanese, in American colleges, I am aware how how American colleges teach languages. So, I incorporate methodologies from American and Russian educational systems. But most important, I tailor my teaching to the student's needs and personality. Of course, it takes more time and effort from my side, but I am dedicated to improving people's sense of well-being which always starts from their brain health.

Cheers for a better life!

Thank you.
Maiya

Russian

I am Russian. I was born there and finished undergraduate work there. Coming to America, I have taught Russian to many students who ranged from children, pastors, business executives and conductors of famous orchestras. I will work with you to improve your language skills whether they are beginner or advanced. Having also studied languages in US colleges, I know how the American system works and will guide you to the best results.
