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!

Katya has been my Russian tutor for about 5 months and has done an excellent job at teaching me the basics of Russian. She follows a logical and clear structure to her lessons and ensures my understanding. I have appreciated the pace she sets for my progression through the lessons so that I am challenged but also have enough time for review and comprehension. Katya has great balance of asking consistent questions each lesson to help me gain confidence in my speaking skills. I also appreciate her use of varied mediums including recorded dialogues, written texts and review of homework to help me learn Russian in many contexts.

I have been told by my colleagues at work that when I speak in Russian, I do not have an accent. This shows how much care Katya has put into my speaking skills!

I warmly recommend the Russian courses set up on Skype by Yulia. After starting group classes in the evening at a training centre in Paris, I was looking for a particular additional course that would allow me to further and deepen my lessons at the same time.
I also had to find a formula that does not consume my time with travel around Paris. I am a manager and I have a very busy schedule, so I needed to find an effective method by which I could optimize the time I can devote to the study of Russian.

My teacher is Alyona Belikhina who works at the Pushkin Institute in Moscow. She knows English very well .

This method of learning by Skype is very useful and relevant:

  • I can set the course schedule in the gaps that suit me and I can take lessons from home without moving anywhere;
  • With Alyona I review the content I learn in group in the training center in Paris, she has the same textbook as in the Centre;
  • I revise the points that I have not quite grasped, and the teacher sends me exercises or explanations by Skype or by email;
  • I'm working at my Russian vocabulary applied in practical situations;
  • When I do not understand a subject in Russian , I speak English with the teacher and she explains it to me ,
  • I also continue to work on Skype during periods of leave from the Language Centre
  • The payment of Skype lessons is simple and without fees.

Alyona follows my progress and can adapt her classes to my time constraints and my level. She identifies weak points I have to work on. She also provides time during the lessons to discuss the topics of everyday life or the news, which, in addition to the lesson exercises and grammar points, allows me to speak in Russian and correct my mistakes to gradually carry on a conversation in Russian.

I am very satisfied with this method of learning Russian through Skype developed by Yulia with the assistance of these highly experienced Russian tutors. Yulia adapts to the needs of her students and I am grateful to her for that.

If you want to learn the beautiful Russian language, I invite you to take the first free lesson, you can check yourself if all of the above-mentioned is true.
