Greetings! I am an English and French-speaking tutor of the Russian language, with an academic background. I am a medical doctor with a PhD in Internal Medicine, as well as a Master's degree in Financial Management. My lessons are tailored for ADULT learners and aim to build fluency through speaking, listening, writing, and reading, while also reinforcing grammar and building vocabulary specific to your needs. Whether your goal is to reach a level of proficiency from A1 to C2, or to attain a native-level mastery of the language, I can help you reach your objectives.
Me as a Teacher
As a native Russian speaker, my language skills are rich, refined, and articulate with a neutral accent. I am a patient and flexible teacher, and I take great care to accommodate the specific needs of each of my students. My background includes academic experience in medicine, research, and teaching, as well as a linguistic qualification in academic and professional communication in the medical field. My research has been published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
I offer lessons in:
- Conversational, Intensive, and General Russian;
- Academic, Business, Medical, and Scientific Russian.
My lessons & teaching style
To engage both English- and French-speaking learners of Russian, I incorporate a variety of exercises based on the most effective teaching materials designed by experts.
Kindly send me a message before booking a lesson. I'm also open to accommodating requests for slots OUTSIDE of my current schedule. Let's get started - I have a passion for languages and am eager to support you in your journey to fluency in Russian!

Alexander est un enseignant compétent, il est agréable de parler avec lui. Dans la première leçon, nous avons étudié la phonétique. Le sujet n'est pas facile, mais le professeur m'a trouvé un bon manuel et un bon audio.
