Anastasia is a really awesome teacher. Her English is superb, which is really helpful when learning Russian as an English speaker. She is very patient and extremely knowledgeable. What I like best about working with Anastasia is that I can be myself. I have specific Russian language objectives, and she works with these without complaint (some teachers have their OWN agenda ... teacher knows best). Also, I tend to "ramble" a bit during our lessons (hey, I'm in my 60s!) and Anastasia allows me to be myself in this way. Professionally, I am a teacher of English as a Second Language, and she follows my methodology with the Russian language. You can not find a better teacher of Russian!
