Knowledgeable, patient, attentive

Elena has taught me to understand my language level and to determine the focus of the work on my English. I liked the high level of professionalism and individual approach to the student.

Thank you, Natalia!

Very professional and skilled tutor!

Elena is an excellent tutor and has helped me a ton with my Russian! She is patient and very professional and I would recommend her to anyone!

Tutor responded:

Thanks a lot for your feedback, Erik!

Knowledgeable and very fun teacher for my kids!

We connected with Elena to teach my two kids (4 and 2 year old) Russian. My 4 year old adores Elena and I was very impressed how Elena was able to incorporate fun games such as drawing, hide and seek and some media time to teach basic commands and numbers. We've only just started (2 lessons in), but I am very happy with the progress and I know that my kids will be looking forward to learning Russian with Elena's help and definitely will be seeing great results!

Lena, 9 lessons with Elena

Excellent and patient tutor.

Elena reviewed my goals with me and came up with a plan to tackle those specific goals. Then she very patiently led me through some very basic interactions in Russian, like how to say hello, how are you, and things like that. She explained everything very well, and has an excellent flash card method that helps you learn conversation in Russian, rather than just random words.

Danni, 6 lessons with Elena

First lesson 5 STAR!

She was very professional yet outspoken and didn't talk to you like a robot. Encourages you to stop her if you fall off track in her lesson. The flash card idea she has is a great tactic. I look forward to her other reaching methods at our next meeting.
