       “Ekaterina helped me and my wife to understand the basics of Russian language, enough to improve our quality of life and socialize during our stay as expats in Moscow. She pushed us starting from zero, and  in the end she succeded”

       “Ekaterina nos ayudo a adquirir conceptos practicos y basicos del idioma  ruso que nos ayudaron mucho en la vida cotidiana y social. Su persistencia y metodologia nos llevo a aprender mas de lo que nuestra dedicacion y voluntad sola nos hubiese llevado. gracias”

       “Ekaterina is an excellent teacher who makes learning Russian, which is a difficult language, much easier. Her fluent grasp over both English and Russian makes her an ideal teacher for Foreigners seeking to learn the language. I am quite happy with my progress over the past three months, in no small view due to Ekaterina’s patient, intuitive teaching style”.

“If it weren’t for Ekaterina’s instruction, I still wouldn’t be able to order food, ask for directions, or navigate Russian culture. Thanks to her, I am not starving, lost, and confused – I highly recommend her tutoring.”

“After 30 classes with Ekaterina really happy and proud as my knowledge of Russian came on level where can easy communicate in everyday situations and even in daily business routines. Of course it is not 100% correct in terms of grammar but therefore Ekaterina during our classes pay special attention on areas for improvement and explain it on simple way through examples and link with previously learned.

Classes itself are very interesting and mix of communication, reading practices and grammar so each class is fully rounded and structured, filled with mixture of mentioned elements.

Especially interesting note gives start with “warm up” of previously learned and practicing through games which force fast and correct thinking.

Would like to take opportunity and recommend Ekaterina as great person for all foreign people who’d like to learn Russian and be more effective in business as the same can feel myself too.”

As someone with wide experience in language learning, both as a teacher and as a student, I particularly appreciate Ekaterina’s thorough and systematic approach to teaching Russian. She is patient and methodical at all times, providing opportunities for free conversation practice but more importantly, regularly drilling and consolidating the core concepts and rules of Russian grammar. She has the knowledge and experience to be able to explain and demonstrate everything with a rare degree of clarity and understanding.

Moreover, Ekaterina will not let you forget what she has taught you. Lessons are challenging, informative and useful, but your skills will be tested. This isn’t just someone you can practice your Russian with; this is a real teacher – one that comes highly recommended.

My name is Patrizia Giaccone and I have lived approximately one year in Moscow: my husband has worked in the Russian capital for an international chemical group (AkzoNobel).

During my stay in Moscow I had classes of Russian language with Ekaterina, and from the beginning she showed her excellent qualities as a teacher. She is very competent and has pushed me to learn the language with her practical and effective methodology. I started from zero level as I was not even familiar with the Cyrillic alphabet, and thanks to her I managed to understand and make myself understood in Russian at a sufficient level for my daily life. I studied other languages in my life as I had to follow my husband abroad in various European countries and I can definitely say that Ekaterina has been the best teacher I met. I wish to advise everybody Ekaterina as a teacher, as she has got an excellent curriculum also thanks to the several years as a teacher at the university. She is also very reliable and punctual in the appointments and she is flexible when there is a need to change time in case of problems. Having learned the basis of the Russian language, I could appreciate more my time in Moscow.

 

Mi chiamo Patrizia Giaccone e ho vissuto a Mosca circa un anno perché mio marito ha lavorato nella capitale russa per un’industria chimica internazionale (AkzoNobel).

Durante la mia permanenza a Mosca ho preso lezioni di russo con Ekaterina, che si è da subito rivelata un’ottima insegnante. È molto competente e mi ha spronato a studiare la lingua con il suo metodo di insegnamento pratico ed efficace. Io sono partita da zero, non conoscevo neppure l’alfabeto cirillico e grazie a lei sono riuscita a comprendere e a farmi capire in russo ad un livello utile per la mia vita quotidiana. Ho studiato altre lingue nella mia vita perché ho seguito mio marito all’estero per varie nazioni europee e posso dire con certezza che Ekaterina è stata la migliore professoressa che ho incontrato. La consiglio vivamente a tutti, ha un ottimo curriculum che deriva dagli innumerevoli anni di insegnamento all’università. Inoltre è molto puntuale e affidabile negli appuntamenti e flessibile nel cambiamento di orari se sorgono problemi. Ho apprezzato di più il mio soggiorno a Mosca avendo appreso le basi della lingua russa.

My name is Andrew Strickland and I’ve been learning Russian with Ekaterina for 2 years and I enjoy her systematic approach towards teaching the language.
I was starting from zero so it was good that she commenced with the grammar and then built in the practical usage, working with the Survival Russian textbook (recommended).
I find Ekaterina has the right level of patience with me and I always feel like I am getting better over time. On areas where I struggle she’s always been willing to find resources to help me improve outside of the lessons we have. Also, importantly she won’t let me cut corners, ensuring I am properly tested during the lessons and also with homework.
Finally, Ekaterina has been very flexible around the actual scheduling of the lessons themselves as I struggle to be available outside of the weekend.
All in all highly recommended

Thanks a lot to Ekaterina for the effective teaching of Russian as a foreign language during my one-week-holiday in Moscow. Solid and reliable private tutors are rare, even in a big city like Moscow. I have to say that I have been looking for a teacher for a very long time before my trip to Moscow. And I’m glad, that I found Ekaterina. She was always very well prepared and lessons took place in a relaxed atmosphere, although we worked very concentrated. As an absolute beginner I have learned a lot in the short time. And the most important thing: thanks to Ekaterina, I dare to use the Russian language in everyday life. I got the courage to speak, even though my Russian is far from perfect. Soon I would like to continue teaching with Ekaterina on Skype.

Ekaterina, vielen Dank für den effektiven Crashkurs in Moskau! Ich habe in der kurzen Zeit viel gelernt und Sie haben mich noch mehr für die russische Sprache begeistert. 

Ekaterina war immer perfekt vorbereitet, die entspannte Atmosphäre war sehr hilfreich für konzentriertes Arbeiten, so dass tatsächlich viel „hängen blieb“ und ich nun endlich auch mal den Mut aufbringe, mein Anfängerrussisch auch anzuwenden. Ich freue mich sehr auf die Fortsetzung unseres Unterrichts auf Skype, denn meine nächste Russland-Reise kommt bestimmt!

I had lessons with Ekaterina for almost one year in Moscow and she helped me learn a lot in a short time. Someone recommended her to me and it was worth it, I got more than I was expecting. I highly recommend. Thank you Ekaterina!
