Although I was born and raised in the Ukraine, I studied English for 13 years; 10 years at a private school and then another 3 years at the Pedagogical University where I earned duel degrees in History and Psychology. Additionally, I have taken and passed the Test of Spoken English required to acquire a teaching certificate in Texas. Prior to moving to the United States, I gave private lessons for persons who desired to learn the English language as well as tutored students learning English in school. Here in the United States I currently offer private tutoring in both English as a Second Language and Russian to those who desire to learn it. Because I have had to learn a second language and adapt to a new country where that language is the primary spoken language, I know how difficult it can be to learn the nuances and idioms of another language. It has been frustrating at times, and I know that each student experiences different levels of anxiety when learning. But I can tell you from experience, it is wonderful to be able to speak more than one language and something you will never regret. I am here to help and encourage you to do your best and learn English as quickly as you are able. This is why I sit with each student at the beginning of his or her lessons and discuss your goals and present knowledge. Lesson plans are then tailored to each student so as to continually evaluate your learning, target weaknesses, and to maximize the educational experience.

If you are interested in learning Russian or Ukrainian languages, correct pronunciation and spelling, then there is no better way to learn it then to learn it from a native speaker. I went to private school in Ukraine where I studied Ukrainian, Russian and English for 10 years. Then I studied in Pedagogical University for 5 years, where I attended Russian and Russian literature classes. So, I am a teacher and a native born Russian and I am willing to teach you this language. I can teach you Russian Alphabet, Reading, Writing, Grammar.

Olha is a great tutor for my daughter

She is patient and have done great progress with my 6 year-old. She provides great material that help with learning. I like her teaching technique that always encourages the child to feel excited about education. My daughter enjoys her lessons with Olha!

Veronika, 9 lessons with Olha

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor

Although it was only my first lesson, we went over pronouncing letters & words and accents, also online with wyzant, the screen chat also had writing tools to use for lesson, a plus to see demonstrations of writings on both ends during lesson was plus, definitely doing more lesson with Olha!

Eric, 31 lessons with Olha

Great Russian language instructor!

Olha is a great instructor and I’ve really been enjoying my classes with her! She has extensive experience and her structured approach to teaching the very complex Russian language is highly effective. She uses well-tailored exercises and materials that build various skills in a progressive manner. She is also very kind and patient, making the learning process really enjoyable. I always look forward to my classes with her!

Ariana, 14 lessons with Olha

Great first session

I am trying to pickup Russian after a long hiatus. Olha is very flexible in helping me customize my learning program. She is easy to talk to in our online session and a very patient and kind teacher.

Schuyler, 50 lessons with Olha

Excellent teacher, very effective and personable

This is my second review for Olha, and things have only gotten better. Olha has been invaluable in my language learning experience. She is an excellent teacher, personable, and willing to explain things thoroughly, but in a simple enough way as to make sense to someone with no experience in Russian. Olha, thanks again for everything! My fiancée and I can’t begin to express our gratitude for your help!

Noah, 38 lessons with Olha

Very dedicated teacher

Olha works very diligently each week to help my son develop his beginner skills with the Russian language. He looks forward to his lessons and takes them very seriously. She is a dedicated teacher and I recommend her highly.

Chris, 49 lessons with Olha

Wonderful and full of knowledge!

She is very nice and wonderful to work with, and very smart (knows what she is talking about). Very glad I found her and am working with her! I look forward to my future lessons.

Rachel, 10 lessons with Olha

Friendly and Effective Tutor

I’ve only had two sessions with Olha, but she’s already become an invaluable resource in my language learning goals. She is very comprehensive, going over everything before we picked a “starting line” (I had some knowledge of the language prior to our meeting). She makes seemingly difficult concepts easy to grasp, and pays attention to little details that are key to effective learning that would be ignored by many other tutors. Olha is also a very friendly person, super approachable, which allowed any speaking anxiety I may have had to disappear quickly. All in all, I highly recommend taking a class with Olha. You won’t be disappointed.

Noah, 38 lessons with Olha

Excellent First Lesson

From the beginning I could tell that Olha was a nice person that genuinely cares about the students comprehension of material. We started from the basics, and built upon the knowledge I already had. I’m feeling very confident that under her teaching I can accomplish my goals!
