Yulia is a very good russian teacher! She is definitely my favourite Russian teacher. I've learnt so many things from her, not only grammar rules and new vocabulary and expressions in Russian but also she taught me how to appreciate the beauty of Russian language and culture!
If you really want to learn russian, she is the best russian tutor choice: you will all love the way she teaches, you will all love her as a tutor and as a person too!

Anne-Marie,

I am extremely happy with the course from Pavel. First of all it is well prepared and well structured. Also it follows my level and progression very well: all my weak points are trapped, worked-out and followed up. It is also very rich, with various contents, in the form of pictures, animations, exercises, texts… Finally there is a room for free conversation which is to me very important because it is not easy to pass the bridge from understanding the language , to the ability to have a conversation I really feel my Learning curve has become steeper since I started this course. It seems to me much more efficient than a traditional classroom course.

I guarantee that your Russian will improve dramatically! My Russian was acceptable but I reached a point that I was not seeing any progress. After trying with different teachers without results I met Yulia and my Russian improved dramatically. Probably, the best Russian teacher I ever had.

How it works

An online Russian Skype lesson is like a real Russian lesson in the classroom, because both the teacher and the student can see each other and speak to each other with the use of a headset and a web camera. If you are interested in receiving real time Russian lessons, you will have to install Skype because it allows interactive communication. Online Russian lessons are one-to-one classes, and if your Internet connection is fast and works properly, you will be able to hear the teacher perfectly, so it won't be a passive language learning experience, but an active one, with an important speaking component.
No, it is not just speaking! The newest Russian learning materials are scanned and sent to you via email; in this way both the teacher and the student will be able to use them during the lessons. In order to practise writing, the Russian keyboard has to be installed. We also do listening, using Internet podcasts and Youtube videos. Of course, we also do home reading, it is an important part of our course. For the beginner, pre-intermediate and intermediate levels we scan texts from the reading books. However, for advanced students we search for interesting texts on the Internet. Our main aim is to include all the language components into our Russian language course (grammar, vocabulary, communication, reading, speaking, writing and listening) and to use the communicative approach during our lessons.
We use the newest Russian language materials in our courses. The majority of them are scanned; some of them are used online.
A virtual blackboard is one of the main tools of our classes. During the class, you and your teacher build up an electronic scrapbook of material that is relevant to you and which can be reviewed at any time. We also use mindmaps, word clouds, infographics, interactive exercises and images, Google maps, flash cards and other resources related to new technologies.
The payment can be realized by a transfer to our Paypal account. Other payment options are also possible and can be discussed. Your payments are 100% secure: we never see your bank account or credit card information.
