I was struggling to learn Russian on my own when I discovered Yulia's Russian lessons on Skype. As a Russian beginner I highly recommend her lessons. She keeps a good balance between theory and practice, she uses several different materials yet she keeps the teaching focused to your personal progress. She can adapt the lessons to your particular level and needs. She not only is a very qualified and experienced teacher, she has a talent for it!

My name is Maia, I’m Slovenian and I’m a teacher of Russian and Spanish.

After I finished my studies in philology in Slovenia I enrolled in a two-year course (July/August 2007-July 2008) at the Russian language school in Moscow studied with Alexandra as my teacher.

I was taking an advanced-level group class with her, as well as individual classes. Her lessons were always very useful and interesting, and we discussed every possible topic, chatting about current events and reading magazine and newspaper articles. Alexandra always brought with her to class audio and video recordings, so that we could watch a film or cartoon, and then she prepare additional material based on what we had seen.

Alexandra knew how to include every student in the class even considering that some students required additional motivation. We worked hard during our lessons, but the atmosphere in Alexandra’s classes was always relaxed. She assigns a variety of tasks for homework, which I like, because I had come to Moscow to study and her lessons were always a lot of work.

Alexandra is an excellent specialist of the Russian language and she always explained everything very clearly. Her personality is also well-suited to her work, as she is a pleasant, warm, and patient person.

As both a student and a teacher, I would strongly recommend Alexandra as a teacher for any student.

Maria Stoyanova is an excellent teacher. My first steps in the Russian language were very difficult because I had to start from scratch in a group of students who had been studying Russian for at least three years in their native countries. Maria proved to be a true professional from the beginning, as she showed excellent teaching skills, total commitment to her students, and a wonderful personality. This is an excellent combination to motivate even the most backward students. I would recommend Maria as many times as necessary. Maria Stoyanova, thanks for everything!
