Frequently Asked Questions about Online Russian Tutoring
Can I work with the same tutor for all my lessons?
Yes! We believe learning a new language requires trust and understanding between the tutor and the student, so we make every effort to match you with a tutor who suits your needs. We encourage you to work with the same tutor across all your lessons so he or she can track your progress and design a consistent lesson plan.
How will I meet with my tutor?
Our tutors are experts in teaching Russian online through programs such as Skype and WhatsApp. You can speak directly with your tutor via webcam and audio or via audio only, whichever is most comfortable for you.
I already know a bit of Russian. Can you teach me more than the basics?
Absolutely. Our tutors can accommodate learners of all levels, from complete beginners to those who have been learning Russian for years. If you need to learn Russian for a specific reason, such as for business or travel, we can even match you with a tutor who will base your custom lesson plan around those needs.
Can I learn to speak Russian without learning to read Cyrillic?
Absolutely. Our tutors will design your lessons, including any written exercises, according to your ability level and your language learning goals. If you want to learn to speak Russian, with no written component, we can definitely accommodate you.
Can you provide lessons for my time zone?
We want to accommodate your schedule. We can provide lessons on weekdays or weekends at whatever time works best for you, day or night, anywhere in the world.
Are lessons customized for me?
Yes! We understand no two students are alike. During your first lesson, your tutor will take the time to learn about your needs and do some basic exercises to assess your skill level, after which he or she will build a customized lesson plan to help you reach your language learning goals.
Why do you offer a 100% money-back guarantee?
Simply put, we know everyone learns differently. After your first lesson, if you feel our online Russian tutoring may not be the right fit for you, just let us know within 10 days and before taking a second lesson, and we'll refund the cost completely. No risk!
Do you offer discounts if I purchase more than one lesson?
Of course. Because we understand that learning a language inside out takes time, our lessons get cheaper the more you purchase. Check out our rates for packages of five or ten lessons—and remember, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
