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!
I've been taking online lessons from Alexandra for about four years on and off. I am interested in Russian literature and thus have watched video lectures on literature, written summaries of them, and read various literary texts with her. Alexandra is an excellent teacher and a truly intellectual person. She always clarifies my questions, explains to me the differences between similar expressions, and shares with me her accurate and logical interpretations of the videos/texts. This process greatly helps me gain new perspectives on the videos/texts and understand the world of Russian literature more deeply. I would also like to express my gratitude for Yulia, the director of the school, who is prompt, understands my needs very well, and introduced me to the wonderful teacher Alexandra.
Six months ago I had been studying Russian at University for 2 years. My level was already fairly good, but I had several shortcomings, especially with regard to speaking. Even if I knew I had a relatively good understanding of grammar and good pronunciation, until then I had had very few opportunities to speak Russian. I also have always had difficulty learning new words, and the fact of having very few opportunities to practice the language certainly did not help. Although the university had given me a good base, I realized that was not enough, so I turned to Russificate.
Six months ago I met my new Russificate teacher, Julia Sutuginiene . Since then, thanks to her, I have made tremendous progress. The first results were already visible after the first few lessons.
I do not know where to begin to list the qualities that I liked about Julia and her method. Probably my words will be few and won't do justice to the great experience I have had. Julia's lessons are never predictable or monotonous and all the time is exploited in full. Everything seems natural and sometimes even easy, yet it is clear that behind all this there is the teaching method, a thorough preparation of each part of the lesson, and last but not least, passion.
Julia uses films as part of her lectures: each lesson was built on a movie episode of 5-10 minutes. In my opinion, it is a revolutionary method because, in this way, the student has a point of reference that goes beyond simple notions of grammar and vocabulary found in books. This way, you have the chance to hear and practice the authentic, real language that Russians use in their everyday life.
Thanks to our work with the films and the continuous conversation practice I had with Julia - always and only in Russian - my active mastery of the language has improved a lot. I felt as if every week I did a "full immersion " into the Russian language and culture, and even if the lesson lasted only 90 minutes, I preserved my knowledge for another week until the next lesson.
Julia always tries to meet your needs in any possible way and you will not ever be disappointed . She is able to quickly understand what your limitations are and to organize her work in order to try to overcome them. With a difficult language like Russian the risk of being bored is very high, but in 6 months of lessons, I have never been bored! On the contrary, Julia has maintains her enthusiasm and now my passion for the Russian language and culture is more alive than ever.
Even though I still have much to learn, with Julia Sutuginiene I achieved the results that 6 months ago were unthinkable: no other teacher has ever managed to make me learn so much in so little time!
The best Russian teacher I've ever had.
