About Me
italki teacher since Mar 1, 2022
Hello! My name is Sofia, I was born in the Far East of Russia, and I am a native Russian speaker. I live in St. Petersburg, but also often travel to Moscow. I received my Bachelor's Degree at the Higher School of Economics in Political Science. My program was thought in English, and during my studies at the university, I communicated with many foreigners helping them to learn Russian and to get a feel of Russian culture and everyday life. Personally, I am a big fan of learning and teaching foreign languages. I am also interested in history, literature and culture, so my lessons will never make you bored!

I just had my first Russian lesson with Sofy on Italki, and it was an amazing experience! 🎉 During the lesson, Sofy asked me questions to assess my current level and understand my learning goals. This made the lesson highly relevant and catered specifically to what I needed to learn. As a person, Sofy is incredibly friendly and made me feel comfortable right from the start. 😊 Therefore, I highly recommend Sofy to anyone looking to learn or improve their Russian. She is an exceptional teacher who genuinely cares about her students' progress and success !

Sofy is a great teacher because she explains words by putting them into complete sentences. She also gives idiomatic variations of the same sentence so that you can see different ways that real Russians will say something in real life. When she teaches a new word, she also provides several synonyms and explains the subtle differences between the synonyms. She also speaks perfect English. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Russian.

Amazing and kind teacher that helps you no matter your skill level! Sofy uses an interactive approach and genuinely wants to help her students. She is the type of teacher that uses up-to-date and modern language that would allow you to fit in with native speakers. Highly recommend! :)
