I am very happy to recommend Olga Bondareva as a Russian teacher. Olga has been my Russian teacher for the past three years [or longer?] and in that time has assisted me enormously with the study of the Russian language. Olga is punctual and always well prepared. Her classes include a combination of grammar, conversation and vocabulary, are always varied and never repetitive. Olga’s bright and cheery manner also make learning Russian with her a real pleasure. For any student of the Russian language who is determined to improve his or her Russian language capabilities, Olga is the ideal teacher.
I find Evgenia’s lessons interesting. We approach grammar rules that are new to us in conjunction with new lexical topics and using different materials and angles each time. This way, the lessons stay original and do not become monotonous. The homework helps one to remember the rules and vocabulary seen in the previous lesson, while helping to embark on the next lesson’s topic.
Mikhail Yurievich is one of the best tutors of Russian as a second language that I have met during the time of my studying it.
He is well and honestly prepared for the lessons, bringing own (author’s) materials to every lesson for reading and discussing, grammar exercises, lexical exercises (including the typical cliché phrases from the speaking language and slang) and dialogues for the development of speech. Among the materials there are also practice and visualisation of the correct pronunciation, which is absent in the typical textbooks of Russian as a second language, although it is especially important for the foreigners.
With this combination of the different didactic methods, Mikhail Yurievich, systematically develops all 4 language competencies in all types of students. He is an experienced tutor, who actively and constructively uses own knowledge of the language problems, connected with the interference of the students’ mother tongue.
Mikhail Yurievich’s lessons are always led in a good mood and in a pleasant atmosphere. With his natural charm and a good sense of humour, he finds common ground and understanding with every student, and also ways to motivate students in discussions of any topic. During the discussion, the student forgets that he is speaking a foreign language; in this way eventually eliminating the language barriers and fear of mistakes. On the other hand, thanks to his wide range of interests he is prepared to lead the lesson on any topic that interests the student; and to answer any questions connected with the history and the culture of Russia.
Work with Mikhail Yurievich is always interesting and helpful!
