Hi! My name is Maria and I’m a native Russian speaker. I’m a student, tutor and person who LOVES languages and different cultures! By the way, Russian is my main field of study at the university + I also study Spanish and Polish.
I played in the theater and taught the kids Russian. I’m in love with my work —> when you love something, that’s your strongest motivation!
I enjoy spending time with my friends, watching movies, dancing and SUP surfing!!! I’m a cheerful and sincere person with a positive attitude!
We will definitely find a common language :)
Me as a Teacher
I’m a really patient, talkative and creative teacher. I’m ready to support you during our language journey!
My lessons = comfort + efficiency
I’m open to any questions and ideas, heyyy don't be shy :) I’m very flexible, so your language-goals are a priority for me.
“We need to understand how this machine works”. During our lessons, I don’t give you fragmentary knowledge, I try to build or complete the language functioning system in your mind.
You can always write to me and ask what interests you. By the way, are you ready to get funny pictures in our chat? :D
My lessons & teaching style
I offer two types of lesson: SPEAKING PRACTICE and GRAMMAR (detailed information in the lesson description***). I like to visualize texts, so I often use graphics tablet or whiteboard and markers in my lessons. It definitely won't be boring!
Usually we discuss the lesson plan, but if you just want to talk, we can have an improvisation-lesson. You know, your emotions and attitude are really important, so if you feel something is wrong, please let me know.
Thank you for your trust. I can't wait to see you!
Maria is an excellent teacher! The biggest asset you can have as a student of another language is having a teacher that what’s you to do well but more than that is patient! She’s not afraid to take the time needed to do multiple exercises on the same subject so her student gets it. I’ve had a lot of Russian teachers and she is by far the best!

Fantastic Lesson, we reviewed gramatical concepts and she very kindly helped me understand the difference between some concepts which where a bit confusing, and very skillfully explained them!
