Hi! My name is Maria. I adore books, interesting stories, and conversations that you think about later. Literature is my main area of interest (I have a book blog), but I'm also happy to discuss politics, movies, the environment, celebrity news, social media, psychology, science, or how you spent your weekend!
I also sincerely love to talk about everything related to Ukraine and Ukrainian culture.
Me as a Teacher
In February 2022, I started teaching speaking practice. All these 1.5 years I usually had at least 12 lessons a week. I taught both people with a high level of language proficiency and those who were taking their first steps. I can explain grammar as well as the etymology of words.
My lessons & teaching style
At the first lesson, we will get to know each other and you will tell me what your hobbies are and why you need the Ukrainian language, which will help me understand the best way to organize lessons for you.
If you are just starting to learn the language - we will start with simple colloquial phrases and basic grammar so that you can build sentences on your own. If you already know something - we will speak Ukrainian as much as possible and at the end of the lesson I will send you a list of new words that we discussed!

Maria is a wonderful teacher and one of the best I have had in any language. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Ukrainian. She have a very natural ability to understand your level, your needs, and your progress. She is empathetic to the challenges of the Ukrainian language and she takes you through them slowly and clearly. Her materials are really useful and her knowledge of the language's intricacies is second to none. Morever, she is always punctual, friendly, and so passionate about her students. Thank you Maria! I'm looking forward to learning so much more with you.

Another helpful lesson. I really appreciate the resources that Masha provides, like the vocabulary lists at the end of each class. It makes it easier to remember what we covered and where I need to practice. Thanks again!

The first lesson with Maria was very productive, more than I thought possible. She explains with great clarity and patience so the lesson has a very supportive mood to it. Her confidence in her teaching is probably because of her very natural appreciation for people. I'm sure was the most popular person in her classes in school.
