Introduction: I teach Russian, French, Spanish and ESL. I conduct group and private lessons for children and adults. I work on speaking, reading, writing and grammar. Summer group classes through Zoom: Beginning French 7/27-8/31 Mondays 6:00-7:00 $60 for 6 classes Intermediate French 7/27-8/31 Mondays 7:15-8:15 $60 for 6 classes French for children 7/28-8/27 Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:30-11:30 $100 for 10 classes Beginning Russian 7/23-8/27 Thursdays 5:45-6:45 6 classes $60 I am an experienced and a licensed teacher. . I believe that the target language should be used as much as possible in the classroom, the teacher should make the class fun and enjoyable for the students, and the students should be as involved as possible. I believe that the classroom instruction should focus on creating an environment as similar to immersion as possible. Teachers should make every effort to only use the target language and encourage students to realize that communication is the key. The use of the technology is making my class enjoyable for the students. In my class students are playing games, doing projects, watching movies and listening music. As I learn new methods, I constantly modify my teaching methods in a search of the most optimal way to help students acquire language.

French Lessons

Anna teaches my 8 & 11 year old children French weekly. She is flexible in working with our busy schedule and is responsive in communication. Always on time. With a teaching background, she can adapt the style of learning to each child's strengths. She brings plenty of materials and offers advice on supplemental ways to learn. We would highly recommend.

To Whom it may Concern, Anna has a very good experience. She was born in Russia and has a very good backing in the Russian language and the English language. In the 1990's she helped me through the translation of my work in Russian. Along the same lines, she helped translate the Russian documents that I retrieved from the KGB archives. I did all of the leg work of visiting the sites, archives, and locations in Russia (over 22 times) in which I visited locations that my relative was sent to in Russia in the 1920's. I had guides and interpreters in Russia to assist me. I have the desire to learn the language (Russian). It is a hard language. Anna has guided me through many lessons. I can read and translate a lot of the work in the lessons. I reviewed many document from the Archives in America, Russia, Finland. I met with additional people in Russia to uncover the story of my relative. I have met Anna's father and mother several times in Moscow. I met many other Russians and as they became familiar with my effort, they noted that I had been to more places in Russia then most Russians. Interesting, I was honored with a "Honorable Professor" certificate from the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences Section of Military History , culture and law for my work in 1999. they noted that I was the only American to receive the honor and only 47 Russians had received. I enjoyed talking with young children. They want to learn English, and I wanted to learn Russian. In one time, I was asked to talk to a class. Questions where directed to me and from me to the class. I did need an interpreter at the time. I could go on forever about my experiences. But, Anna would have me tell stories at the beginning of every class. I she would help me, correct me, and go on. Every class produced many new words. I had trouble remembering everything. But, little by little, I developed my Russian skills. I am still receiving lessons from Anna. I will admit that this is more about me then Anna. But, Anna is an excellent teacher of the Russian language (and French, Spanish, and Hebrew). She has been there In teaching me the language, the culture, and the many things about Russia. Sincerely, Edward M.

ESL (English as a Second Language) Lessons

I had just 1 hour / class with Anna. However, I felt free to speak with her. When she corrected my mistakes she was kindly. She arrived at my house some minutes later. Our professional relation was very pleasant.
