I am Katya. I grew up in Yekaterinburg, one of the largest cities in Russia, which is situated right on the border between Europe and Asia. I am a professional and certified Russian teacher and have taught Russian to students of all levels for over 9 years both in classrooms and online.
Moreover, I am passionate about meeting new people and learning more about their cultures. Students tell me they like that I am always happy, patient, supportive, and motivated to help them reach their language goals.
As a person who also learns foreign languages, I know the struggles that a student has when learning a language. Therefore, I am happy to guide you on your language journey!
