Can you learn a foreign language the fun way?

Learn Russian like many Russians do - through culture! Watching TV shows in Russian, listening to popular Russian songs, reading favorites like Harry Potter (the translated version), and changing the language on your computer are all a part of learning with my program! Become Russian to learn Russian. Grasping the essence of the language is much more engaging when you learn what makes Russian a unique, rich language.

I am a dynamic and result-oriented Russian as a Foreign Language teacher committed to inculcating a passion for learning, creating multicultural awareness though teaching the fundamentals of Russian language. I have a strong talent to develop and implement creative, hands-on curriculum that suits every student's learning style and ability, empowering the student to succeed and realize their individual goals. I am a trustworthy and approachable individual with excellent communication. I help you or your student to:

•Augment learning through one-on-one instruction; partner student with advanced bilingual student ensuring a comfortable learning environment and ability to actively participate in the learning process.

•Stay motivated and take charge of own learning and setting own goals. I document the progress, which enhances the student’s improvement in both understanding and performance.

•Initiate and lead meetings for parents who are not familiar with reading or speaking Russian to help them become involved in the education of their child.


The Russian language study program of each student starts with a written and oral test, to determine the exact level of Russian language skills for placement to in groups from Beginner to Advanced.

Lessons focus on improving the four essential language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Sessions place particular emphasis on speaking, as this is the key to communication. In order to provide a high level of individual attention, I have a maximum of 6 students per class.

One-to-one Russian tutoring will target what you need and I will work directly with you speaking Russian with you, on spelling, grammar and verbs, depending on your current capabilities.

Russian Foreign Language can be a hard subject, and as a local native speaking Russian as a Foreign Language tutor I can really speed up your progress!
