About Maria


Bio

I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University and from Harvard University Extension School (Linguistics). For many years, I combined my linguistic research work with teaching Russian at all levels: from 5-year old kids to graduate university students, government employees and other busy professionals at Berlitz Language School.
My method of teaching is great for beginners, as well as for those who would like to brush up or polish their knowledge of Russian. I can adapt to your needs:...

I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University and from Harvard University Extension School (Linguistics). For many years, I combined my linguistic research work with teaching Russian at all levels: from 5-year old kids to graduate university students, government employees and other busy professionals at Berlitz Language School.
My method of teaching is great for beginners, as well as for those who would like to brush up or polish their knowledge of Russian. I can adapt to your needs: besides conversation skills, I teach reading and writing, as well as grammar and literature (for those who are interested). I prefer to use different books at the same time because there is no perfect book for studying a language. You can expect quizzes, tests, and other classical approaches in learning, as well as watching Russian cartoons and playing games.

Amazing tutor

My son really enjoys working with her. She keeps it interesting and practical and provides great feedback. She is very patient and kind. I would highly recommend her. I am so glad we found her!

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Seeta! Ishaan is a joy to teach.

Came prepared

I was very pleased that Maria came to the lesson prepared with material. I've worked with tutors before who seemed to expect me to drive the lesson, which is always a source of anxiety for me. She gave me clear direction for what to work on during the week and what we'll talk about next week. Look forward to continuing to work with her.

Encouraging and inspiring.

Maria meets her students where they are. She is open and engaging, perceptive about what is needed to be learned, and brings interesting and creative resources.
