Russian Language Classes (online/offline) for adults, students, kids - easier than you think!

Russian may seem difficult at the first sight, but I will do my best to prove it is not so hard as it seems!

The class is suitable for all people (kids, students, adults) who would like to study Russian for various reasons. I always create a personal program for every student in order to satisfy different levels of Russian and adapt towards specific needs.

The focus is, of course, put on studying vocabulary, grammar and most importantly speaking. The student can already say some basics starting from the first class. As soon as some basics are learned, communication will be practiced in a creative ad customized way. I will show various videos, texts and exercises to do together and provide written homework for further practice.

The lesson is structured as following (depending on personal needs, goals and knowledge):
- Homework overview and check up
- New material shown and explained
- Examples given for grammar, texts, vocabulary
- Discussion of the topic and Q&A session
- Extra additional information shared
- Conversational practice
- New homework given

About Me

Hi! My nationality is Russian. I finished high school in Finland, graduated as a Bachelor in Business Management in Belgium, had exchange studies in Italy and remote work from Montenegro. Currently I am based in Vienna and work in business development.

I have wide international background (lived in 8 countries). I love learning and teaching languages, as well as travelling, meeting new people, sharing experiences and cultures.

As for my personality, I am an easy-going, friendly person, inspiring and motivating others. I've been teaching languages for 5 years now, feel free to contact me if you need help.

Education

Gymnasium N1, Russian Federation (2007-2014)
Russian Language & Literature (grades: 5 out of 5)

International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), Finland (2014-2018)
Russian Linguistics and Literature (grades: 6 out of 7), Psychology

Bachelor in Business Management (BBM), Belgium (2018-2021)

Bachelor in Marketing and Public Relations (Erasmus), Italy (2019-2020)

Russian language is my native and I've been learning it since my childhood. As for English language, I've been living abroad for 8 years now, always communicating in English and developed it up to a fluent level. I continue learning Italian language now for two years and currently have B2 (I teach only basic Italian).

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching Russian to several Finnish students few years several times a week as well as three Belgian people on a weekly and monthly basis. As for English, I gave classes to Russian people mostly and one international friend of mine. I only taught one person Italian language this summer.

It was an awesome experience for me and for them with a fast language progress, therefore I would like to continue doing it. I really enjoyed the process of teaching languages, so I would really like to help others to learn them here on Apprentus.

I take preparation for the class very seriously, do research to facilitate easier information processing and make lessons more entertaining/interesting for the kids/adults, adapt content and the way of teaching towards different personalities of students and their knowledge levels of the language, generate topics to keep discussion with the students ongoing and search/improve student's weak areas in the language.

Skilled at teaching, communication, time-management, planning, creativity and organization. I easily connect with different students and communicate effectively.

I'm so happy I found Mariia to help me learn Russian. She is extremely professional and friendly, she manages to make it fun and easy to understand - the hours are passing so quickly! After only a couple a lessons my understanding of the Russian language has already improved a lot. You can see Mariia works hard to prepare the lessons and adapt to the level of the student! Definitely recommend you learn with her!
Very skilled, patient and friendly teacher. Maria takes her time and has different ways to explain things. She is a great teacher and I would recommend her to everyone who would like to learn Russian.
Nice and dynamic teacher, providing precise examples to improve student’s russian skills. Flexible on schedule and answering fast. Very pleased with her service.
Are you interested in Italian culture and language? Are you planning to move to Italy for work, study, travel, volunteering? Then this class is for you! Italy is one of the countries where not that many citizens speak English language, therefore it might be difficult to adapt to locals without knowing Italian, at least basic one. By this class I would like to immerse you into Basic Italian language and culture. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of Italian grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and Italian is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.
Did you always dream to learn English language and haven't done it yet? I am here to help you out! It is one of the most popular languages on the planet, therefore it is very important to know it. This class is aimed at individuals (either kids, students or adults) who wish to learn it. You can already know basics and would like to continue learning more further on or you are starting from scratch and have a long way in front to pursue. By this class I would like to immerse you into English language environment. For the teaching purposes, throughout the classes, I will use different highly-rated textbooks of local editions, effective YouTube channels, interesting articles. I will cover main functional areas of English grammar and vocabulary within different areas and will make sure that you start speaking since the first class already, since Practice Makes Perfect and English is not so difficult as it may seem at first! The goals, needs, expectations will be discussed in person with every student and adapted towards personality. The program and classes content will also depend on the prior mentioned factors. Feel free to contact me for questions and classes.

Ilia
Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература
Hi All, thank you for checking out my course. This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most defining aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. You will get the benefit of a vast bank of techniques, methods and learning materials that I have developed and accumulated over the past year will be used in class to pique and maintain your interest. And since I was once a language student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!

Vitalii
Russian language for foreign students, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading, listening
I am glad to welcome you to my apprentus page. My name is Vitaly, a Russian language teacher and pianist, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory. We, musicians, communicate not only with people from our country, but also abroad, as there are many foreign students studying music in Russia. They started contacting me, and I started teaching them this. I thought, why would I do this professionally and since the 18th year I have been giving Russian lessons to students from different countries. I am burning with this, because, firstly, I adore all peoples, and I consider it a happiness to communicate with everyone, and secondly, I love and appreciate the Russian language, in which there is not a probable number of epithets, sayings, and, of course, an irreplaceable swear words! I'm really waiting for everyone!!!

Gulnare

Iakov
Russian for beginners / Russian for beginners / Russian pour débutant
Russian literature, music and theater. One of the biggest advantages of learning Russian is the access you get to the rich cultural offer. Literature, theater performances and music are just the beginning! I can also give Russian lessons in English in case this is needed.

I know that learning Russian might be challenging but I always pay a lot of attention to my students` interests, profession and purposes. That`s why my lessons are always interesting and no one is bored. I do my best teaching process will not be boring but interesting. I am sure that just interesting things can be catchy!

Egor
Russian Language - From Basics to Developed Skills
Currently I teach English, German and Korean in my region as a tutor and have the teaching experience I would consider to be sufficient for helping a foreign student to become a good Russian speaker. Besides grammar, phonology and vocabulary I also set on background information that would make the language learning easier and more interesting.

Aziza
I propose particular courses of Russian in Paris at home or at home (all levels)
Having Russian as my mother tongue, I offer Russian lessons for all levels (beginner -> advanced). I graduated (Bac + 5) from the French university and have 2 years of experience as a home language teacher. I speak 7 languages: French, Russian, English, German, Spanish, Arabic, Kazakh. Languages are really my passion! In addition to the Russian language, I will introduce you to Russian culture and literature. I am certified as having an excellent level of Russian (grammar, phonetics, syntax) and I would like to pass my knowledge on to someone ready to take up this challenge :)

Morgan
Russian lessons - All Levels - By a native graduate - remotely or at home, schedules to be specified and prices negotiable!!
My classes take place online or face-to-face via the Google Meet platform. Ideally, we will work individually, but if you wish, it is possible to organize lessons in small groups of maximum 5 people. Depending on your age and level, the method followed will vary, but we will work on all the aspects necessary for learning a language. There will therefore be content centered on the written as well as the oral, and on expression as well as on understanding. I am a patient and pedagogical person, and I will make sure to go at a pace that suits you. If a student is particularly interested in Russian culture in general, supplements on the great authors of Russian literature or Soviet cinematography can be added. Lessons on the vocabulary of specific fields such as legal Russian or medical Russian can also be organized, according to the specific needs of the students. The first session will be devoted to defining your objectives, your current level, as well as your difficulties. In the case of children or adolescents attending school, we will come back to what has been seen in class and help with homework can be provided. (Prices negotiable)

Elena

Luba
Certificate Russian tutor with 6+ years of experience
I have 5 years of experience as a tutor. My students are of different ages, both children and adults, who are learning Russian for their professional activities. The smallest student is 5 years old. I have individual material for each student. I can teach lessons in 3 languages Russian, English and Italian. I conduct lessons as comfortably as possible for students. Someone likes to study the language in an official format, like at a university, and someone with a cup of coffee. The main thing is always the excellent result that my students get!

Kuralay
- English, Russian and Turkish language lessons for children, students and adults
Learning a new language involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, sometimes even a new alphabet and writing format. Besides having more chances of landing a good job or advancing in your career, learning a second language can also give you an insight into other cultures. You will be more prepared and confident to travel the world and explore other people's ways of living. You will learn how to make sentences, make a dialog and speak with native speakers.
