My name is Sam and I live in the USA. I have been taking lessons from Kateryna Syomyk for several months now and it has really helped. She is a very good teacher and is very personable. She actually lived in the USA for some time and I really think that was a benefit when it comes to her teaching. She understands the grammer needed to teach and she has an excellent way of catching you when you mispronounce words, so watch out because she WILL catch you! :) Anyway, I think she is great at what she does and I have enjoyed every lesson we have had. I highly recommend her if you want to learn to speak Russian.
