Russian Language
Hi, I am a native Russian speaker with a Masters degree from St. Petersburg State University. I am experienced, reliable, and organized person, always eager to help my students to learn Russian language and get cultural understanding of Russia and her people. I have experience teaching adults as well as children and enjoy communicating with students of any group age, especially when they are eager to learn. Some of my 15 year experience in teaching Russian language is with Berlitz Languages, Inc.

In my lessons I use a full emerging method where only Russian is spoken during the class. My students are very engaged and speak at least a half of the class time in relaxed and supportive learning environment. Even as the main goal of the course is a proficiency in conversational Russian students will also learn to read and write. I have found that this method gives better and quicker results and in no time you will be ready to communicate in Russian, read Russian books, or pass your Foreign Language exam.

In addition to all of above my rates are very reasonable and hours are very flexible. (Rates given are for one-on-one class-hour).

Please contact me with any questions and concerns you may have.

Always eager to help,
your friendly teacher Rufina
