About Anna

My teaching experience goes back to 2000, when I was enrolled at a pedagogical university in Russia, the faculty of foreign languages. I have been tutoring all ages and levels of students, helping them with all sorts of tasks. I have been mostly teaching English to Russian students, and also Russian to English-speaking ones, and doing some English-Russian-English translations. I also graduated from a Russian theater school and worked as an actress in an independent theater in Saint-Petersburg. I got a traditional theater education based on Stanislavsky's system, though my theater group explored more modern and experimental territories, which combined different schools. Now I live in the US and eager to share my knowledge with anyone who needs it.

While teaching languages, I concentrate on speaking practices as I believe it is the most difficult thing to do. The Russian language is not easy, I will not conceal it, but my classes are not overbearing with tons of grammar or writing. I am convinced that any class should be balanced and switch from one aspect to another not to make the brain too exhausted. As to the theater classes, I specialize in actor training, which is good both to those who pursue the acting career dream and those who just do it for fun. Actor training is supposed to relax your body and make you feel comfortable and confident with it in any public situation, not necessarily just on stage. It is also aimed at the development of imagination and quick reaction to all sorts of problems. In the future, I would like to organize a theater group with my students.

The cancellation policy is two hours, as I understand there can be all sorts of major force situations, but do not go overboard about it – of course it would be more convenient if the students informed me in advance. I am ready to have classes both at your home and at mine, or via Internet.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you and helping you achieve results in what you pursue in life, whether it is just for fun or it is a professional leaning!

Russian

I am a Russian language tutor. Russian is my native language, which I studied at school and at university. I have a got a linguistic education, so I can freely speak two languages - Russian and English. I immigrated to the US in 2013 and I often travel to Russia, I also regularly communicate with Russian people both in real life and via Internet, which helps me to retain a good command of the language. I have been teaching both Russian and English as a second language since 2000.
