The course of my teacher, Julia Sutuginiene, is intense, but very enriching and enjoyable. The fact of using interesting texts for reading, a variety of tasks for writing, engrossing listening and discussing a lot of actual topics during speaking in Russian is very motivating for the students. Julia is very clear in her explanations of grammar and any difficult moments of Russian language. And what I like the most - she use a lot of video during our study, so making homework is a big pleasure! I think - this approach of using Russian video is very interesting and dynamic in progress of speaking and understanding Russian people. I want to thank my teacher for her professional, friendly and patient demeanor throughout the course. It was a great experience, which will stay in my mind forever!

In summer 2012, I took private Russian lessons from Vika. I was impressed with her method of teaching and the quality of the materials she provided. I studied with the book she wrote, which is comprehensive and modern. I strongly recommend her as a teacher of Russian.

I was struggling to learn Russian on my own when I discovered Yulia's Russian lessons on Skype. As a Russian beginner I highly recommend her lessons. She keeps a good balance between theory and practice, she uses several different materials yet she keeps the teaching focused to your personal progress. She can adapt the lessons to your particular level and needs. She not only is a very qualified and experienced teacher, she has a talent for it!
