    Teaching Approach

    - Each student has an individual education level, personal or business goals, schedules and timeframes. Accordingly, each tutoring program is unique and has to be developed on an individual basis. With a native speaker as your Russian tutor you will have the "first-hand" language experience. The focus is on everyday conversation and real-life topics instead of time-consumin g grammar exercises.
    - English as Second Language for those Russians which recently arrived in the U.S. or wish to improve his or her English skills. TOEFL tests preparation. Everyday dialogues and topics. Immersion approach.

    Program Description

    Russian language lessons for various levels and ages. Vast experience in teaching and tutoring American high-school students and adults. Practical goals instead of time-consumin g grammar exercises. Everyday conversation, real-life topics.

    "O utstanding Tutorial Skills - Bella will meet or exceed your highest expectations as a professional linguist and tutor of the Russian language. Her tutoring style and teaching skills are exemplary and have been a tremendous help to me in such a short amount of time. Her patience and perception of the individual student's needs is a key in the successful learning atmosphere. Bella sees the big picture and uses several different teaching methods that help and stimulate the learning process. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to learn or improve on their use of the Russian language for personal or business purposes. I have never had a more pleasing experience during one-on-one tutoring lessons."

    "My long term aim is to learn to read Russian literature. Bella (Ms Goubnitskaia) has started me off with children's classics which are just delightful. These Russian lessons are a total change of scene, and refreshing like painting a picture, or sailing on a lake. Bella is full of anecdotes which breathe life into the difficult parts. She is a pleasure to work with."
