Brain Pumping by Tolstoy & Dostoevsky

Reading Tolstoy in the original with no knowledge in Russian, using a linguistic matrix and your intuition - with the professor of the Russian philology. 

I do

few things:

Solution For Your Business


For those who don't want to deal with agencies, bigger than their own company:
All you need for your business can be done right in your office or in nearby coffeeshop, so you could see the progress, ask questions, and make changes on the go while doing your daily routine. In this case, all discussions and feedbacks become so productive that in one or two days we can finish the project.  
You pay for the day whatever project we are working on: web design, promotional graphic, branding, social media, content writing, photographing, or making movies.

For those who want to get basic literacy and take control:
I can educate you enough for your competence so you don't overpay agencies or at least stop looking for "free" website builders.

For DIY:
I'll teach you basic maintenance.

For too busy:
I actually need just 30 min of you in total.

My Clients & Students 

Lena is among the best 

I have studied with many language teachers over the years in learning French, Italian and Spanish. Lena is among the best that I have ever had. I feel that I have made tremendous progress in the past year because of the depth of her knowledge of how to teach Russian and her method of teaching it. She is excellent in every way.

Lena is phenomenal

Lena was phenomenal. I can't stop raving about how patient she was. Her instruction was so clear and hands-on that by allowing me to fall and allowing me to try to get up on my own, she helped me overcome my fear that day. She's awesome, give her a raise or something, she deserves it, the whole group was exponentially better by the end of the beginner lesson!
