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.

Tatiana Ryndak has been my personal Russian tutor since July 2011.
I know her as a teacher with an extremely good command of the Russian language. She is also a dedicated teacher and a very good educator. She individually adapts her lessons according to the specific needs of the different students.
To cater to my unique requirements as a journalist, she has used a book specially designed for people in my field. In addition, she is always careful to monitor students' weaknesses, focusing on them until they are fully resolved.
I strongly recommend her.
