I am a patient, dedicated, and experienced teacher. My main goal and great pride is the success of my students. My educational background is Master's in Engineering from Russia, Certificate of proficiency in languages from Higher Courses of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation, and Certificate of Teaching Knowledge from Cambridge University. My professional experience includes: teaching Mathematics, Russian and ESL for about 20 years in Russia and since 2011 in the USA. In 2007 I...
I have only had one lesson with Victoria (as well as an introduction session), but I already like her very much. The way she teaches Russian so far has been easy to understand and fun as well.

Victoria is teaching my 5-year-old son reading and writing in Russian. Great progress just in a few weeks. Super approachable for the kid and very nice. She knows exactly what she's doing. Fantastic teaching method and patient guidance. Would highly recommend.
- Olga A. from Carmel, CA
In less than a month, Victoria greatly improved my knowledge of the Russian language. She was extremely knowledgeable with Russian culture and even researched topics specific to my interests. Now I feel confident and ready for my trip to a Russia to attend the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, all thanks to her!

I?m a beginner. Victoria is very responsive to my skill level and switches her instruction seamlessly to keep me engaged. She never lets me get overwhelmed and discouraged. Excellent at reading and responding to her students.

Victoria worked with farm animals and colors with the kids. We really enjoy that she uses educational games to teach the kids lessons. She is very patient and does a good job of keeping the kids engaged the entire lesson. My kids look forward to lessons with Victoria every week!

I have been taking lessons from Victoria since last year. I've never had any type of online class like this before. You are in a virtual classroom filled with lesson plans that she has prepared and, in addition, the classroom is very user-friendly. In the past, I used to go to a language school (learning to speak Russian) for several months before starting with Victoria but I was never exposed to much of the culture, music, etc. This particular language school company only taught me how to converse in Russian with a little bit of the culture involved (not really explaining why certain phrases are said in certain situations, which became frustrating because I was just told to memorize it without a full explanation on the "why"). However, in my opinion, learning about the culture goes hand in hand with learning the language because there are many nuances in each language that can't be translated straight to English or to another "tongue" -- understanding the people, the culture, etc. help achieve this. That is why I love having Victoria as my teacher because she teaches me how to speak Russian correctly with the bonus of teaching about the Russian way of life. You basically get the "whole package". So, Victoria, thank you very much! I am very happy that you are my teacher. Thanks to you, I have learned so much about the Russian language and culture (and I hope to learn even more). I really want to travel to Russia and I promise you that I will travel around the country in the future. I look forward to our lessons every week!

I really appreciate how Victoria understands how I think and process information. This is a unique and highly underrated skill.
- Sarah A. from Monterey, CA
Victoria is very knowledgeable in math, explains concepts very well, and is patient with her students. She is also very flexible on days/times to meet... something we value with our busy schedules!
- Dana M. from Pacific Grove, CA
Victoria is always very willing to work with the pupil to fit the most desirable times. For example, when my son could not meet w/her at one time, she was very willing to meet with us at a more desirable time for us. That is a good thing.

Victoria is a new-to-us tutor. On her second official session with my child, I asked if she would also tutor my older child, who had a math test the next day. My older child was in a panic as she did not understand the math lessons, and neither did I. Long story short, in a matter of minutes Victoria went from expecting to tutor one child, to three children. She was gracious, skilled, and highly effective! We are grateful she was able to squeeze in our daughter and her friend. We highly recommend Victoria, the kids all did great on their math test, and most importantly, they had confidence walking into that test. Victoria will be tutoring all three kids from now on!
- Jennifer V. from Carmel, CA
She is so sweet and patient. Uses technological aids. She was preparing my daughter for a test. I hope the hard work pays off.
- Giovanna R. from Monterey, CA
I really recommend Victoria tutor for math. We love you Victoria :) Victoria taught my daughter math. We like her teaching and preparation for each and every session we have. Victoria helps us accomplish understanding of math. Thank you Victoria.

My 8 year old daughter is learning Russian with Victoria. I love that Victoria individualizes teaching strategy taking into account the interests of my daughter. The classes are very productive because my child gets to talk a lot of spontaneous Russian and learns language concepts.
- Tatiana R. from Watertown, NY
Victoria is a very engaging and knowledgeable tutor. She has an amazing on-line classroom system that works very well and has a great task-reward ratio. Since my son is only 7, Victoria doesn't keep him working on each task for too long to keep him engaged. I've never seen my son being so focused and happy while learning so many new things! Victoria has a way with children that not very many teachers have. It's so special! I am so happy we found Victoria! She is the best!

Victoria Carter has been teaching Russian to my 6 year old daughter for 3 months. My daughter is a native speaker of both Russian and English and recently we relocated to the USA but wanted to actively continue developing her Russian language skills, in particular reading, writing and grammar. Victoria is kind and encouraging and after the first lesson our daughter was excited to continue Russian lessons with Victoria. Her lessons include highly interactive activities such as riddles, cursive writing practice and cartoons that are used as an instrument to analyze and summarize situations in discussion form. I highly recommend Victoria to anyone who wants their child to be excited about learning Russian.
- Sasha I. from Seaside, CA
I have never met such a patient, kind and giving tutor. Other than math, Victoria is educated in so many different subjects. I am learning so much from her. She explains the problems thoroughly and very concisely. I highly recommend her!!
- Laney F. from Seaside, CA
I?m really grateful to have such a tutor for my son. I can say he?s very selective with people, and Victoria was able to find a way to become friends with him. Both her way of teaching and the virtual classroom were perfect for my son. His reading skills obviously improved after the first few classes. I can see he?s glad to have two classes a week now instead of one. Victoria is very well-prepared for the class, and regularly provides productive post-session work. At the same time she is a very delicate, knowledgeable, and patient person. I can definitely recommend Victoria for those parents who wants their children to learn Russian with interest and fun.
- Olesya U. from Novato, CA
Victoria is a wonderful tutor who comes up with a lot of fun ways to teach Russian. My 17 year old daughter is quite interested in Russian culture and decided she would like to learn the language, as well. She has worked with Victoria for a year on Skype and it's worked so well. It's very convenient and they still have the face to face dialogue that is so essential to learning. Our daughter always looks forward to working with Victoria.
- Marcia L. from San Francisco, CA
Victoria is patient and thorough in her explanations and provides a lot of support and study materials outside of class. She has been good to work with, and has a good system for tutoring anywhere through Skype and a shared online "classroom" workspace, which let me continue getting help from her even after arriving in Russia.
- Siri D. from San Francisco, CA
I've been learning Russian with Victoria for a while now and she is a really great tutor. She is very patient and understanding, and always does a good job at thoroughly explaining the material. The virtual classroom she uses is not the traditional way of learning a language, but it is a lot better in my opinion. It allows a lot more freedom to do various types of activities and provides a more fun learning environment. Exercises are much easier with this method and Victoria always comes up with different ways to keep it interesting and exciting. With Victoria, learning is much more pleasant because she uses a variety of different games and tasks to make the learning process much less boring and tedious than the more traditional methods of learning a foreign language. It is great having a teacher who is not only passionate about the language, but passionate about teaching as well. She makes learning Russian very enjoyable and as accessible as possible. Though the language is a little difficult to learn, her positive personality and great composure make me feel very relaxed and encouraged to want to keep learning more. I would definitely recommend her to anyone because I have learned so much since beginning my journey of learning another language with her!
