Slava is a great tutor

Viachaslau (Slava) has been really helpful in my work towards achieving a higher level in Russian. He has introduced me to different activities around DC to help me improve my Russian in different environments

Sarah, 13 lessons with Viachaslau

Knowledgeable and personable.

Assessment of my level and then practical dialogs to improve my conversational Russian. Appreciated the practice, explanation of new vocabulary and the handouts. Look forward to continuing with Slava.

Nadia, 4 lessons with Viachaslau

Great instructor

Slava (Viachaslau) is a wonderful instructor and we, my son and I, look forward to future instruction as discussed. Great job, Slava!

Bill, 1 lesson with Viachaslau

Helpful!

Slava is new to the US and being fresh from that part of the world (Belarus) will help with increasing confidence with the ever changing Russian language, culture and history over the years. He's cool and his personal life story is interesting!

Patient and accommodating

Viachaslau is helping me with beginning Russian. He has a gift for teaching and tries to understand how each person will best learn. Also a very thoughtful and kind person. Recommend highly.

Great tutor!

Slava is the most hardworking tutor I've ever had. Not only did he go above and beyond to find reading and vocabulary homework related to my particular field of interest, but he's patiently engaged me on every topic and question I've brought up. He's fun to talk to and shares great stories.

Olga, 5 lessons with Viachaslau

Wonderful!

Slava was a wonderful tutor, despite only meeting with him a couple of times. He was always very flexible with my schedule and was very pleasant to chat with. He rose to the challenge of helping me to better understand tough advanced grammatical concepts and explained things in a manner that was easy to understand. I highly recommend Slava to anyone who would like some extra practice with conversation or grammar help! No matter your language level, Slava is an easy-going and patient tutor who will do all he can to help you with your Russian.

Terrific

Viachaslau (Slava) was enthusiastic in his approach. He made the sessions fun. Slava was very patient. I saw a significant improvement after each session. He really made a difference. Looking forward to working with him again this summer.
