Currently, I am on the graduate program at UCLA and my MA degree I got in St. Petersburg, which is Theory and History of Art.

I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and the Russian language is my native language. I have been teaching it for 13 years- 10 years in Russia, St Petersburg and 3 years here at UCLA. Currently, I am on the graduate program at UCLA and my MA degree I got in St. Petersburg, which is Theory and History of Art.

I love the Russian art and I definitely know a lot about the Russian culture: cinematography, literature, ballet and music - either contemporary or of different epoches. Living in Russia I used to work in The Russian State Museum and the Hermitage (the two famous museums) and it was an amazing time because the Russian art is really impressive.

I have a big experience in teaching the Russian language and I know, which problems my student could face during the learning process and the most important I know how to solve these problems! I have prepared many people for some language proficiency exams, I have translated songs and even movies with my students to make our classes more fun. I can teach the language according to various needs- the business language, an improvement of the grammar or the language for travel and so on. I know how to entertain students, when they learn even the most difficult and boring grammar rules ( yes, we cannot avoid grammar) and I know how to make my students feel content speaking Russian.
I know how to create a nice environment in a class or at a time of a private lessons. The Russian language is not an easy one, but it doesn't mean the learning has to be hard and exhausting!

Wonderful tutor; highly recommended

My son worked with Yelena before heading to Poland (today) for a museum docent position. Yelena provided patient and detailed language instruction, answering a variety of questions about Polish, etc.; she is intelligent and knowledgeable, providing interesting insights. My son really enjoyed working with Yelena! And I would highly recommend her services.
