So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

I love words, the concepts behind grammar, the art of communication. As a journalist, I have enjoyed writing about dance and film, as well as writing proposals, and film festival programs, radio scripts, magazine articles, and interviews.

About Deirdre

Languages have always fascinated me. Music is a language, a universal one. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnar

My one-to-one lessons are customized to my student's needs and preferences. I will use your favorite movies, TV shows, books and music to create lesson that you find interesting and fun so you'll retain the lesson easily.
I also focus on conversation and I'll make sure we work on your accent and correct pronunciation!
I introduce grammar lessons at the end of each class so you have time to go over it yourself and have questions for next class when you also will have time to practice!

About Isa

As a teacher, I'm very proactive, which means I never settle with just a book! I enjoy creating exercises and strategies according to my students' needs and preferences. This includes incorporating music, literature, movies and games to the daily lesson. As a teacher, I'm very patient and I consider
