About Alexandra


Bio

I am a native Russian speaker. I learned English (for beginners) at school. Then I mastered it through fellowship and living in the States for 17 years.

I have been teaching Russian for 14 years. I taught different ages from 5 to 70. I am comfortable teaching group of students as well as to give private face-to-face or online lessons. I have taught Russian at a language school, a language camp, 2 years at a High School and Adult Night School.

Even though I am not a teacher by education,...

I am a native Russian speaker. I learned English (for beginners) at school. Then I mastered it through fellowship and living in the States for 17 years.

I have been teaching Russian for 14 years. I taught different ages from 5 to 70. I am comfortable teaching group of students as well as to give private face-to-face or online lessons. I have taught Russian at a language school, a language camp, 2 years at a High School and Adult Night School.

Even though I am not a teacher by education, tutoring Russian became my passion while living in the States. I love to teach English speaking students and explain to them how Russian language works.

I have ALL the necessary resources for you, including PDFs of textbooks and practice books that will help you to work at home. I have important links to helpful websites that will enrich your learning experience.

Online lessons are available at discounted price.

I learned how to play guitar and used that ability to praise and worship God. I would like to help you with this, too. I can only offer beginner classes -cords, strumming and finger picking techniques. We will learn how to play using praise, worship songs or simple children's songs.

Cooking is my hobby. I love to cook so much that I would like to teach you. You will learn Russian recipes like borscht, Russian potato salad and many more. I love to make cakes and decorate them with fondant. I can teach you how. It is fun and easy.

Right now I am working as a voice over for Russian and a proofreader of medical scripts. I am working for leading pharmaceutical companies.

Every student has different goals and a different level of knowledge. If I know your needs, I will prepare my lessons accordingly.

I hope you will have a wonderful learning experience during my lessons.

Perfect tutor

My daughter was nervous since she had no guitar experience, but Alexandra was the perfect beginning teacher. She is soft spoken, kind, and patient. She is flexible with scheduling and always arrives on time. We are glad we took the chance and my daughter is having a wonderful experience learning basic guitar.

Kind, patient and knowledgeable

Wonderful! I want to focus on conversational Russian. Alexandra has tailored my lesson to me and is helping me with great explanations and patience to my study. She has provided me with study lessons to practice at home and exercises to help me roll my R's. Looking forward to my next lesson!

Fabulous teacher

Alexandra is a terrific teacher. My 6 and 9 year olds were taking Russian lessons with Alexandra. She is warm, caring, very patient and very clear in her instruction. The kids loved her! She was also very fast to respond by email, and flexible with scheduling. You can not go wrong here, she is great!

Very good and flexible teacher

Alexandra is a real teacher rather than someone just doing this part-time. She has a sophisticated method and is able to adjust to different types of students very well. Strong recommendation.

Excellent teaching skills

Alexandra is patient, knowledgeable, and intuitive in teaching our daughter to read and speak her native Russian. Coming to the U.S. from Russia at the age of four, our daughter had limited language skills. After spending three years in an American school, her English is on par with native speakers but her native Russian has not developed even though we speak it in our home. After a short time with Alexandra, our daughter's Russian has improved dramatically and she is speaking with no accent as Alexandra focuses particularly on correct pronunciation. We could not be happier with her progress. On top of it all, our daughter can't wait to take her lessons because Alexandra makes them interesting and fun as well as effective. We cannot recommend her more strongly. If you want your children to learn quickly, correctly, and have fun doing it, Alexandra is the ideal choice!

Effective, personalized approach to teaching

Alexandra offers a personalized experience in a comfortable and encouraging environment. Her approach to teaching the Russian language is extremely effective and focuses on developing fundamental grammar concepts, which serve as building blocks for future lessons. Alexandra recognizes that simple memorization is not conducive to actually understanding and applying the content. The quality and structure of her approach is what makes her so essential and it absolutely cannot be found in a textbook. She incorporates a wide variety of resources into her lessons, using everything from books, to interactive websites, and online videos. Within her overall technique, she offers flexibility by effortlessly catering to the student’s individual learning preferences. Her passion for what she does is readily apparent and benefits me greatly. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning the Russian language.

She is AWESOME

I am currently working with Alexandra and she is incredibly thorough and patient in teaching me how to learn this language. I highly recommend Alex if you are serious and willing to put in the time and effort to meet your goals. She is not only a fantastic teacher but she has taken the time to get know me and she cares!

Excellent Tutor

It has been a pleasure working with Alexandra. She is patient and supportive. She also has a very strong understanding of Russian grammar, which is very helpful for learning Russian. Tapes don't do it! Alexandra also does very well at communicating concepts in a way that helps you learn.
