Born in the chilly wonders of Siberia (don't worry, no street-wandering bears here!), I've traded snowflakes for sunshine and now I call Sicily my home after many years of adventures across Latin America and Europe. I've got awesome YouTube channel all about Russian language and culture, and there're 77,000 subscribers! It's in Spanish, but if you're curious – just look up "Maestra Ksenia" on YouTube.

Я долго искала преподавателя и сначала пробовала именно с носителями испанского, но им было тяжело объяснить некоторые специфические моменты. С Ксенией все легко, я часто говорю, что у меня есть только 30 мин на сегодняшний урок, но потом замечаю, что уже 45 пролетели и мы даже пересидели) Она помнит все мои ошибки и ненавязчиво добавляет эти задания на новых уроках, чтобы я наверняка запомнила) Также имеет индивидуальный подход и старается добавить именно тот тип обучения, который меня бодрит) Вообщем мне нравится, я нашла своего учителя, никуда уже не уйду)

I have been having classes with Ksenia for plenty of time now, and I must say she is probably the best language teacher I ever had! It's true, I can say that I had teachers who were living dictionaries and knew ever word and translation you could ask without hesitating, but I have yet to meet one that can teach as Ksenia. She is able to make the "big and scary" Russian language become easy and intuitive. The way she structures her teaching course makes the language very comprehensible, as instead of being grammar heavy, she decides to teach you in a way that you'll be talking without thinking much. Through the lessons, you will talk a lot as well as read and train for daily conversations. You will also have the opportunity to practice your writing. If you're scared of how difficult learning Russian can be, I recommend you have some classes with Ksenia as surely it will become much easier and more fun. That applies to both English and Spanish speakers alike

Ksenia is the best language teacher I have had. She has been teaching me in two languages - thus, I have had the benefit of realising her talent is not just from her language skills, but her pedagogical passion too. I would highly recommend her as a teacher!

Excellent Lesson with Ksenia, she was patient with me while I learned new Spanish verbs and their meanings both in Russian and English. We reviewed how to tell the time and from the homework I learned about tourist destinations and culture in the Latin countries. Ksenia reviewed the reflexive verbs with me today and their usage in the Spanish language.

Today I felt some good progress with reading and also being able to speak more than in the prior lessons. I am happy with the results and of course it’s always nice to work with Ksenia. She is helpful, kind, and always asks if I have questions about any new topics and makes sure to explain all the information in an easy to understand way.
