For the last 16 years, I have lived in Moscow, Russia teaching English to Russians. In that time I have become very adept at teaching and very knowledgeable about language(especially English and Russian).
My strong backgound in language with 4 years of Latin, 3 years of French and 16 years of teaching English as a foreign language in Moscow Russia, meeting IH-London standards with annual observations for continual improvement in my teaching enable me to give you high quality English lesson...
George is a great tutor! He is not only knowledgeable about the Russian language and Russian culture, but is great at explaining things in a way that really helps his students to understand the language not just memorize the language. He is a stickler for correct pronunciation, which is a good thing. Also, we thought it was important to have a tutor like George who learned Russian extremely proficiently but not as a first language so he would know how to teach the language better than a native speaker. We would, without hesitation, recommend George as a tutor! He is awesome!

Per usual, the lesson made me feel I was moving forward. I'm looking forward to when these endless grammatic endings do finally end, but I'm confident things will begin making sense intuitively just as I speak English. George is a good teacher.
- Alek Y. from Selbyville, DE
I am someone who speaks decent Russian (and has friend to speak with) but has trouble with grammar and wanted a native English speaker to teach me grammar. George know grammar so well and can break it down different ways for an audio learner like me. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had in Russian. I highly recommend him and his intuitive teaching style

I am a beginner learning Russian and this was my first lesson with George. I was looking for some structure in my learning process and I think I've found it! I have scheduled another lesson and can't wait!
- Allie T. from Brooklyn, NY
I like that George learned Russian as an adult, gives me hope that I can too! He is very knowledgeable about the Russian language and is trying his best to teach my old mind!

Great to work with and really strives to get you where you want to be. George and I will be on our 3rd tutoring lesson today. I must say, I am thrilled with where I am in the learning process, even after 2 full sessions. He's extremely competent and, personally, I feel that he will get me to what level of Russian I want to attain as swiftly as possible. GREAT GUY!
- Katie M. from Colorado Springs, CO
He is highly intelligent and very patient. I am already studying Russian and he adapted to my curriculum and determined areas of focus that will be most beneficial for me. With his extensive knowledge of multiple languages, he helped me to understand the vocabulary from multiple view points, helping me to learn a few words at a time, instead of just one.

George is a knowledgeable and friendly tutor. He is very flexible in terms of location and schedule. We look forward to more sessions with him and would recommend him without hesitation.
- Alexandre S. from Cary, NC
George helped me with new verbs, pronunciation, conjugation, colloquialisms, and Russian culture. I gained a lot of Knowledge from this first lesson and look forward to learning more next time.

George is an experienced teacher--strong in language. For my lessons, i needed help in specific areas such as answering interview questions and help making my resume persuasive for potential employers. George worked with me on both of these areas and helped me improve well. During the lessons he also taught me a lot of useful grammar, especially verb tenses in a way that books and general lessons don't cover. He also taught me verb forms such as gerunds and participles, and also punctuation. With his ability for language and 15 years of experience teaching English he quickly understands where i dont understand correctly and knows what i need clarified to correct the problem and my way of thinking. I take in-person lessons with George and can tell you, you won't be disappointed studying with him!
- Olga L. from Apex, NC
I would highly recommend George as a tutor. He is very intelligent and easy to communicate with which is a big deal to me when learning a new language. Any subject or language skill that I brought up George new exactly what I was talking about. Mr. M is well versed in Latin which is a great help because he can break down words and show you the root and how they are similar to your native language. George lived in Russia for many years and speaks Russian as well as a native speaker. Look no further, you have found what you are looking for!
