About me

Hey guys! My name is Vasily and I’m the founder of RuClasses.com. Here is some basic information about me:

Cracow, 2014

I’m originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia and I’m a certificated Russian language teacher. In 2013, I successfully completed a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Philology, while simultaneously specializing in a ‘Russian as a foreign language’ program at the Russian State Pedagogical University. In 2012-2013, I completed an internship at a multilingual primary school in Saint Petersburg, through which I taught Russian language to the children of immigrants in Russia. In 2013-2014 I participated in a project by the AIESEC University which was based in Poznan and Cracow, Poland where I taught Russian language to the local university students. Starting from 2013 I have been working as a language tutor online, organizing Russian language lessons online.

I'm delighted with Vasily's classes. He knows how to transmit his knowledge in a clear, fast and logical way. It adapts to my working hours, so I can combine it perfectly with my work. I can say he is one of my best teachers that I have had during my years of Russian language study. 100% recommendable!

I have been studying Russian with Vas since last year. Vas is a kind fun and patient teacher. I had zero ground to study Russian as my mother tounge is Thai. He has a material and text book for me to study online and after class he always gave me homework and checked me up in our next online session. He also taught me the logic behind of Russian grammar which let me feel Russian is not that hard anymore and very easy to remember after I know his technique.

Vasily is a very kind, understanding and fun teacher, with whom classes and learning new language seem to be an easy thing! He always tries to get to know his students individually first to find out what approach and strategy would be best for their studies and also brightens up lectures with his great sense of humor! I can only recommend, you will not regret it! 🙂

Vasily is an excellent teacher, who quickly understands what method is the most appropriate for you and who adapts tirelessly to your needs and requests. It was a great relief when I found him, as I previously had many disappointing experiences. Learning with him comes naturally, and I am very proud of all the improvements that he helped me work through over the last two years.
