I offer Russian language lessons of all levels and sorts to anyone who has a passion for learning the language using the ways and approaches that would be interesting for my students. Starting with basic Russian with an emphasis on grammar and survival vocabulary up to the advanced level.
The key to my way of teaching Russian is to make it engaging and interesting through using fruitful and at the same time unconventional approaches. I believe that the most important thing while learning a language is to dive into it by relating it to culture and one's everyday life. That also concerns grammar, which some people find dull to study -- I know how to make it fun.
I develop a program for every student individually and reshape it, if necessary, according her needs and wishes, but in the way that it will always remain consistent and structured well-enough to provide a progressive experience of learning Russian. There is no book or manual that would exhaust everything a person needs to know about the language, because everyone has her own priorities and goals. That is why a program will be our collective creation.

About the teacher
Hi! My name is Sasha and I came to Berlin to finish my studies (Sociology, Philosophy and Gender Studies) at Humboldt. I am passionate about people, coffee (after 18.00 the passion evolves into the one for wine), reading books and watching people doing the same. While living in St. Petersburg I was semi-professionally teaching Russian and English, both for groups and individual students, which I would like to continue doing here. My free time, which I have, to my surprise, in abundance I spend mostly writing, talking or drawing in any order. Anyway, to complete the image: I am very punctual and responsible when it comes to work.
