Anna! She is so patient!!
For me, How difficult to explain in Russian what I thought, what I experienced(-_-メ)
But, she patiently, kindly tried to understand me( ;∀;)
It's difficult, however, I became more and more love Russian!!!(^^)!

I was able to take a satisfying lesson again today!!
Before lesson, I wrote about some events during summer vacation in Russian.(about my niece so timid to unknown person, about baseball tournament by high school students) And in a lesson, i read it and Anna helped me to correct it. She also asked some question and i tried to answer it, of course i couldn't answer in Russian, so i used English also. Anna kindly gave suitable words for explaining what i wanted to explain.
I realized it is more effective to expand my vocabulary in the course of writing and/or talking (of course it takes me a lot of time and i feel much difficulty) than just memorize many words.
i recommend especially for the beginner to take a skype lesson and just talk, try to talk!!

It' my first lesson with Skype, so there is tiny happening about video. i didn't video on, actually I didn't know the existence of on-off button for video(-。-)y-゜゜゜ so she couldn't see my face at first. It upset me, however she kindly waited me until I put on video.
I can't speak Russian yet, so I'm scared to say even a Russian word.
I think many people feel the scary emotions when talking foreign language, I think she is good at make comfortable atmosphere to talk in unfamiliar language. For me, that kind of 'comfortable' is important.
Of course I can't make whole sentence by myself, however I felt she was good at helping student to spin a sentence.
After he lesson I decided, from now on, I think I should pay more attention to make a sentence without depending on the notion I can't cause I'm beginner.
And I also want to share that her lesson brought me an unexpected gift.
Actually I'm translator from English to Japanese as a second job (not so high level), however I don't practice English conversation for a long long time. So It also pleased me to talk English in a lesson. Her English is very good!! Maybe I thought her as a native speaker if I didn't know her nationality('_').

Lina is an amazing teacher! I just had her trial lesson, but it was far more than a trial!
After I sent a request, Lina frequently communicated with me, prior to the lesson, to find out my level and goals. She even sent me several textbooks to see if I'd be interested in any of them.
The Skype lesson took place on my weekend mid-day, that was late at night in Moscow. Lina was totally up and professional, very friendly and pleasant to talk to. She listened to my Russian and corrected all my mistakes, wrote down the words and expressions that I didn't know. Moreover, her trial lesson was nearly as long as a full lesson. I'd never seen such a generous teacher here before.
Everything was beyond my expectations. I'm scheduling more lessons with her. See you again soon, Lina!

It was so nice to see Alex again after a very long time. I wanted to practice speaking but couldn't think of any topic to talk about, so I asked her to ask me a bunch of questions. She sure did and our conversation flowed without pause. She's very helpful and very pleasant to talk to!

She is easy to talk to, and very understanding of your level. Even though I haven't spoken Russian for years, she made me feel comfortable and we were able to have a simple conversation. She also provides good material to study and reference. Highly recommended.

Taking lessons with Anna sensei is really fun. she teach me basic and simple Russian words in English, so I could learn both Russian and English. Also she gave me many practical informations and what i wanted to know. so now, I'm feeling more familiar to Russia. i'm so excited to be there soon! とっても親切で、遠い国だと感じていたロシアを身近に感じることができました。言葉だけでなく、文化についても教えてくれるので、とってもオススメの先生です。テキストやアフターフォローもしっかりしていて、簡単な英語がわかれば大丈夫だと思います。

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!

I like practicing my spoken Russian with Alex, because she's easy to talk to and explains anything and everything I'm curious about Russia in Russian. Her Russian is beautiful. The best part is her availability. She works from my early morning to midnight 6 days a week!

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.

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.
