This course consists of three blocks.
Included in the first block is a study of history, art, and religion in the ancient world and antiquity. We will be talking about the emergence and the particular characteristics of the first civilizations. Mesopotamia, Egypt, Phoenicia, the Creto-Mycenaean civilization, ancient Greece and ancient Israel, Persia, and ancient Rome. We will be talking about what our ancient ancestors looked like, what they believed, what they created and what remains of them and their legacy.
The second block spans approximately a thousand years from the fall of the Roman Empire to the discovery of the Americas. Europe and Asia, Knights and Samurai, Scandinavian sagas and eastern tales, pre-Columbian America and the birth of Islam, the legends of the Knights of the Round Table, Beowulf and The Poem of the Sid, Romantic and Gothic architecture, the Mongol conquests, Kievan Rus’ and its neighbours...This is far from the complete list into which we will delve. We will examine, analyze, and describe art and everyday life.
The third block consists of the study of the modern era, from c.1500 to c.1800. We will start with the Renaissance and its remarkable paintings and architecture, and we will talk about the Age of Discovery. Great artists and navigators, pirates and scholars, conquistadors and colonizers, the Inquisition and the Reformation, revolution in Europe and the Time of Troubles in Russia. We will be endeavouring to examine all these events cumulatively, grasp how what was occurring in the New World affected the Old World, and understand what was happening at the same time in the east from the perspective of history and art. Your teacher will use a large number of visually illustrative material on architecture, sculpture, and painting as well as objects of material culture from various cultures and eras.

I have been very impressed with Dana and can fully recommend her as a tutor. She takes the time to carefully tailor each class to my needs, even producing her own home tasks based on what we cover in each class. Dana takes the time to find relevant articles based on my interests and has the patience and knowledge to explain why things work the way they do. Dana is perfect if you really want to understand grammar, in particular why and how Russian works the way it does. She combines an academic, professional approach with a warm and friendly delivery making each class a pleasure to take part in.
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.
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!
