About Viktoria


Bio

Hello everyone! It all started in a small city next to the Arctic Circle where I grew up... Whenever there was an opportunity to see foreigners, I was so fascinated with the fact that they came to my town that I genuinely wanted to introduce my culture and language to them as best as I could.

Since then, one of my greatest life passions is education. I really enjoy being a teacher and a student. I have two degrees in Art History and French from Saint Petersburg State University, Bard...

Hello everyone! It all started in a small city next to the Arctic Circle where I grew up... Whenever there was an opportunity to see foreigners, I was so fascinated with the fact that they came to my town that I genuinely wanted to introduce my culture and language to them as best as I could.

Since then, one of my greatest life passions is education. I really enjoy being a teacher and a student. I have two degrees in Art History and French from Saint Petersburg State University, Bard College (NY, USA), and The University of the South (TN, USA). I also have qualifications from Moscow State University as a teacher of Russian as a foreign language.

I've been working as a Russian and English teacher since five years from now; I spent two years teaching Russian to students at the University of the South (Sewanee, TN); and I have experience working at The State Hermitage Museum, Guggenheim, private art collectors and small galleries.

Right now I'm translating a book by famous Russian author Victor Pelevin into English and writing articles on Russian language and culture for Russia Beyond online magazine.

You can't even imagine how fun it can be to learn a foreign language, really! One of the reasons is that anything that interests you can be a subject of our Russian conversations.

It's essential to me to make the process of learning an enjoyable activity that fosters the student's motivation and greater interest in the subject. Besides nailing the basics of Russian grammar and speaking, our learning path will include a lot of visual, video, and music materials that will help you engage in the subject more productively.

Really thinks about what you need to work on; plans lessons; goes at a good pace; speaks excellent English; interesting person

She seems like someone with whom I can work in an active and organized way to improve where I need to improve. Has experience tutoring college students in the US, so knows how to work towards measurable improvement. She doesn't just "shoot the breeze" with you.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Viktoria is patient and flexible in her approach to teaching. Her pleasant manner is reassuring as she provides instruction. I would highly recommend her as a tutor for ages from elementary to adults.

Wonderful Teacher

Today we had a great session learning the proper conjugation to word endings in the different cases was eye opening. Some of what had been confusing to me is beginning to be clearer in the use of cases.

Friendly, knowledgeable and great teacher!

Viktoria is great! She has a lot of experience teaching students Russian, and she met me at my comfort level with the language. I have only basic knowledge, and within minutes of our first lesson she had already straightened out a lot of the mistakes that I had been making and made me feel more confident in myself. She's also traveled the world and has a lot to share about Russian culture, so you're not just left talking about how your day has been and what the weather's like! If you're looking for a friendly tutor who knows the nuts and bolts of teaching language while also being a great person to talk to, definitely pick Viktoria. I'll be signing up for more lessons soon.
