Thank you very much for the lesson! I don't really have much opportunity to meet the Russian. Sasha is very nice and kind, even for a beginner like me. Good teacher!

This is my first lesson after the trial lesson. Sasha is both friendly and well-prepared for the class. We practiced the basic pronunciation. As a total beginner, I once thought that Russian pronunciation is hard, but now I feel more comfortable than I was because of the practices and encouragement. I am looking forward to the next classes!

Such a wonderful lesson! Sasha and I introduced each other and then asked me questions to know what I like and to evaluate my level, she was very friendly and typed in the Skype chat sentences and words I didn't know so now I can revise them. Then we didn't an extremely useful exercises: there were subjects, verbs and nouns and I had to link the words to create sentences using verb conjugations and cases. It was very useful to create sentences patters and realize on what I need to work on. I'll definitely book more lessons with her!

Having this lesson was Sasha was like doing several weeks of Russian class at once. She helped me a lot with pronunciation, which I was specifically concerned about. She also had a lot of interesting material that she showed through her screen. Her explanations on some grammar questions I had were very clear, and I understand those points much better now.

This lesson was challenging because vocabulary was somewhat different from daily conversational Russian. Moreover, everything covered in this lesson was quite a cultural shock to me. For example, what you never write in resume in the U.S. is what you must write in Russia! I learned so many peculiarities and differences in the business practices in Russia. Sasha is always well-prepared and planned ahead, the best tutor for those who want to learn regularly and consistently.

Sasha and I had an excellent lesson, she had very good materials and was very prepared. We went through pronunciation of key words and phrases that would be useful when visiting Russia. We even practised writing words in Russian!
She is a very enthusiastic and fun teacher, which made the lesson very enjoyable, I would definitely recommend her!

Sasha was well-prepared for what she was going to do in the lesson. She started out by asking me questions about what I like to do in my spare time and why I'm so passionate about learning Russian and so on. It was like a warm-up exercise for my brain and tongue to think and speak in Russian. Then she taught me 6 idioms in a quiz format and explained the meanings. After that, she gave me word puzzles and explained how this game would improve my vocabulary. She was very good at listening to what I said, corrected my grammar mistakes, suggested the most appropriate words or expressions when I got stuck. At the end, she summarized the areas I need to work on and advised how. She also sent me links to some learning materials after the lesson.
I really liked this tutor and lesson. I'll definitely come back.
