Kanykei is an excellent tutor. She is very punctual and organized. I appreciate that she is patient and adapts to her students' needs. She seems to be a genuinely caring person who is interested in helping you learn a language. She is very comfortable to work with and I do not feel awkward in making mistakes.

Kanykei is the best teacher for beginner. Thanks to her kind explanation and patient attitude, I've learned basic grammars and started to make sentences using them. Also she offers tailored lesson. She prepares the material just for your level of Russian, and she encourages me to speak even though it would be very basic, broken sentences. Before I met her, I had felt that I never communicate using Russian, but now I dream to chat in Russia someday. Big thanks to her!

Kanykei is a really great teacher! The time with her is flying fast - she's so fun to talk with. And she makes sure not only to teach me new words, but also to integrate them in my vocabulary. Learning Russian has never seemed to be as fun as with her!

I am only two lessons in with Kanykei but they have been great so far! I am excited to be learning Russian with her. The initial two lessons had a nice structure to them and we were able to spend a lot of time not only learning grammar but also practicing speaking and listening in repetition. Looking forward to more lessons!

Wow - tremendous lesson tonight! She’s VERY skilled at helping you get the pronunciation correct on difficult words. At times I was unsure of myself when it came to longer, multi-syllabic words - but she always patiently guides me through this process - and then she celebrates my small victories! I love that! :)

Such a talented instructor! She’s good at calmly explaining things so that you don’t feel like Russian is impossible:)
