What does an online Russian teacher teach?
Studying with an online Russian tutor is a great way to improve your Russian language speaking and comprehension skills. It is also one of the most efficient ways to study a foreign language.
On italki, you will find more than 1000 online teachers and Russian tutors at affordable rates. Each teacher has their teaching style, routine, or materials they use. But one of the main advantages of hiring a private Russian teacher is that they will completely adapt their teaching plan and lessons to you. This means that instead of studying a pre-defined curriculum and spending your time repeating vocabulary and grammar that you already know, you'll focus exactly on the language points you need to improve and you'll start improving from your first private lesson! No more doing redundant exercises or repeating after the class: studying Russian with a private tutor is much more practical and time-effective.
However, keep in mind that some of our teachers specialize in certain fields of Russian language studies. For example, Russian teachers who are doing exam preparation will teach you how to prepare and pass the TORFL. Their goal is to cover all the grammar points and vocabulary required to pass the test. They are more experienced with preparing students for the exam than the teachers who teach general language lessons. On italki, you will also find hundreds of business Russian teachers. They usually teach business vocabulary and they work with business language study materials and textbooks. They are more experienced with training students for job interviews, business meetings, and preparing presentations in Russian. An online business Russian teacher can either teach using business textbooks or using situational language training, where you will practice conversational vocabulary and grammar used in real-life situations and business meetings.
On the other hand, online Russian teachers and tutors who teach general lessons follow a different curriculum than their colleagues teaching exam preparation and business language. The general lessons are aimed at developing an initial competence of the language or at improving language command in all communicative contexts. On italki, you will find experienced Russian tutors who can teach all levels: from A1 to C2.
Russian teachers in A1 and A2 levels, teach students how to satisfy their elementary communicative needs in a limited number of everyday situations. In B1 and B2 levels, teachers focus on building up students’ vocabulary and grammar to use in everyday, cultural, educational, and professional spheres. Russian teachers who teach C1 levels use grammar and vocabulary that are genuinely more complex. They also need to provide opportunities for their students to review content and grammar points from old lessons and to make sure that their students have mastered all the material from levels B1 and B2.

Are there any online tutors for the Russian language?
Nowadays it's easy to find experienced Russian tutors online. For example, on italki, you can choose from more than 1,000 Russian language trainers! Some of our Russian teachers have extensive experience and professional teaching diplomas. Others strive as community tutors and teach conversational Russian for all levels.
Regardless of your current language level, you will find that there are plenty of advantages in studying with an online Russian teacher compared to enrolling in a traditional language course. First of all, your private tutor will design a tailor-made lesson plan adapted to your needs and learning goals. No matter if you want to satisfy your main communicative needs in everyday life, or you seek to learn business Russian or even achieve a language competence close to a native Russian speaker; your online teacher will teach exactly what you need. They can focus on your language drawbacks and help you work upon them. Moreover, working with a private teacher will raise your morale and motivation, as your teacher will always follow your progress and encourage you along the way!

Is it possible to find a Russian teacher online?
Nowadays, it's really easy to find a Russian teacher online. But this big choice of online Russian tutors makes the decision-making process difficult. There are many factors that you must keep in mind while looking for the best online Russian teacher for you. First, ask for their experience in teaching Russian as a foreign language. Being a native Russian speaker is not a guarantee of being a good teacher. You should study with an online Russian teacher who has teaching skills and experience. Experienced teachers are usually more effective in increasing achievement and helping their students improve than less experienced teachers. Second, do not underestimate the personal element when you study online. You may take online lessons and not meet your teacher personally, but their interpersonal skills and communication are as important for your learning process as if you were taking in-person lessons. You should like your online Russian teacher and get along well with them. And finally, take into consideration the teacher's fees per lesson. You will discover that there may be big differences in lesson prices from one teacher to another. Sometimes this depends on the website you use to connect with the online teacher, but in most cases, it simply depends on each teacher. Online Russian lessons' fees vary a lot depending on the teacher's background and on the lesson types. General and conversational Russian lessons are usually cheaper than business and TORFL preparation lessons. Also, native Russian teachers tend to charge more than non-native teachers. Choosing between a native or a non-native teacher is an important choice, but don't forget that being a native speaker doesn't always rhyme with being a good teacher. Always consider their teaching experience first.
