LET’S BREAK STEREOTYPES: RUSSIAN CAN BE SIMPLE!
"The best there is!"
Kole, 11 lessons with Juliya
I am a life-long Moscow resident with a Master of Arts in Philology, specializing in teaching Russian as a Foreign Language (Moscow State Pedagogical University). I also hold a Master of Liberal Arts in Psychology (University of St. Thomas, Houston, TX). Teaching is my passion and love. I started tutoring when I was 17; I got my first teaching position when I was 21. Today, I teach Russian at the University of St. Thomas.
My teaching experience with groups and individuals of different ages allows me to understand each student's needs. The course will be professionally tailored to fit your goals and wishes. I will help you to learn the Russian language in a way that is understandable. Together we will also explore the Russian culture, literature and even history. Learning can be fun! You live a new life for every new language you speak. Why wait? Start now!
The best there is!
Juliya is not only the best tutor that I've ever had the pleasure of working with, but she is also one of my greatest instructors overall! To further elaborate, I need to express the fact that Juliya has been teaching me the Russian language entirely from the ground up. Other than when I once attempted to learn the Russian alphabet via the internet, I had virtually no prior knowledge of the Russian language before I signed up for lessons. And, let me tell you, it is extraordinarily valuable to have an avid and experienced native Russian speaker guide you through the language, step by step and in person; I cannot exaggerate how crucial this is for someone like me who wishes to learn Russian from the ground up. Juliya is a very gifted teacher who is very patient, adaptive, understanding, and knowledgeable. Juliya paces her lessons well and is very attentive and receptive about if/when any confusion or questions arise. She is such a magnificent teacher, in fact, that in less than ten Russian lessons I've already learned the following: The Russian alphabet, to count up to the thousands, read/write basic Russian, and to carry basic conversation - which is very impressive considering that I had little to know knowledge of the Russian language prior to our lessons! I am currently in the process to expanding my vocabulary and am refining my knowledge of gendered/neutral words in order to have more advanced conversational exchanges - all in such little time! My conversational skills are evolving so quickly that I've even purchased a Russian keyboard so that I may read/write online with ease. When comparing self-taught Russian language methods to taking lessons from Juliya, I've gone from 0-100. I've learned more in 7-10 lessons than I could have possibly dreamed and am having a blast! Who knows what the next lessons have in store for me!Kole, 11 lessons with Juliya
Very professional and patient.
Like the title, she is a professional Russian language teacher. She knows how to teach step by step and when you tell her your level and what level you want to reach, she will schedule a plan for you. I think that's the main reason why I need a private teacher instead of self learning. I am Chinese, English is my second language, She always teaches me Russian words and alphabet with vivid English explanations and she always encourages me to learn more. Not only in class, she also sends me some links to upgrade my Russian speaking off the class. So, I am still learning Russian from her every week and I am enjoying it.Chengyu, 15 lessons with Juliya
Outstanding in Every Aspect
I have made faster progress than I thought possible, and I give Juliya much of the credit. Reasons why: 1) She is very patient, so there is no discouragement. 2) Simplifies things for faster learning. 3) Very professional, yet funny, energetic, thus motivates you to learn. 4) Will focus on areas that you need for your particular situation. 5) Truly a pleasure to work with - an outstanding teacher and individual in every way. Highest recommendation.Anthony, 12 lessons with Juliya

I recently had my first lesson with Juliya and it was great! She was very patient and encouraging and adjusted to what I already knew. She is exactly what I was hoping to find in a tutor and I can't wait for future lessons!Lauren, 6 lessons with Juliya
Thorough & Prepared
Juliya was thorough and prepared for my first tutorial. She seemed to adjust "on the fly" the pace and material covered in direct response to my performance reading and translating. I look forward to continuing to learn under her direction.James, 19 lessons with Juliya

Great tutor, very clear, personalized instruction
I met with Juliya for our first lesson yesterday, and I had a great time; I can already tell I'm going to make lots of progress with her as my tutor. We met once before the lesson to talk over my goals and expectations, as well as my language experience before that. When we met for our first lesson, it was clear that Juliya had put a lot of thought into the lesson plan, and at the end of our time she asked for my input again. She's patient and helpful and, most importantly, knows how to correct my errors in a constructive way. I'm excited for our next lessons, and I can't wait to learn more Russian!!Skyler, 11 lessons with Juliya
