Russian Language is very beutiful and rich. A huge amount of literature geniuses wrote their masterpices in Russian that is why the worshipers of Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, Mayakovsy, Tolstoy, Chekhov and many others usually start to learn Russian to ba able to read their works in original.
Russian is not the easiest language in the world but it is logical so if you follow the rules you know how to use it.
I always thought there aren`t bad students but there are bad teachers. If the student can`t understand a rule you just explain it not good enough! I can assure you I`m good at explaining! I`ve been teaching Russian since 2013 and I have a lot of positive feedbacks from my ex and current students from all over the world. And before Russian I was teaching English so I know how to do it right!
On my lessons I always try to make the student speak because knowing grammar is not all. The most important thing is to break a barrier and to start speaking. I think all the tools are good when you are learning the language so I use Russian films, music, cartoons, etc. on my lessons to make my student dive deep into Russian!
I became very good friends with plernty of my students and we still keep and touch and visit each others!
If you have decided to learn Russian I will definately help you!
