Natalia is a terrific teacher who has helped me a lot to improve my Russian. I studied Russian many years ago and have used it only passively -- reading and translating, but speaking very little and writing almost not at all. That means that my recollection of grammar and retention of vocabulary leave a lot to be desired. Natalia is very good at figuring out what I am trying to say, even when many of the words I use are wrong! She is patient, but also concentrates very well on steering our discussions in a focused way, so that I do not lose sight of the grammatical point we are working on. It has been very helpful to me to have the discipline of a weekly one-hour class, to force myself to work hard and do the homework.

The course of my teacher, Julia Sutuginiene, is intense, but very enriching and enjoyable. The fact of using interesting texts for reading, a variety of tasks for writing, engrossing listening and discussing a lot of actual topics during speaking in Russian is very motivating for the students. Julia is very clear in her explanations of grammar and any difficult moments of Russian language. And what I like the most - she use a lot of video during our study, so making homework is a big pleasure! I think - this approach of using Russian video is very interesting and dynamic in progress of speaking and understanding Russian people. I want to thank my teacher for her professional, friendly and patient demeanor throughout the course. It was a great experience, which will stay in my mind forever!

I have been working with Elena as a teacher of Russian as a foreign language for about 9 months now and I am fully satisfied with her professional skills and teaching style. Elena applies both a flexible style of teaching to accomodate the students individual goals as well ensures that relevant language competencies such as grammar, reading, writing, listening and pronunciation are developed holistically.

Elena creates an atmosphere in her lessons which is friendly and supportive but at the same time motivating for the student such that the goals in language learning are reached at a high pace.

I can fully recommend Elena as a teacher.
