A high caliber scholar turned into a successful entrepreneur and a teaching professional, truly passionate about bridging cultural and linguistic divides between English and Russian speakers in all areas – everyday life, academia, and business.

This passion rests on intimate familiarity with both Anglophone and Russian cultures and practices. Such familiarity is natural for a former Russian immigrant whose childhood was spent in Soviet Russia, while teenage years and early adulthood in the US and Canada. A truly global citizen with a Russian heart and a Western mindset, striving to enable Russians to cease global opportunities.

After meeting Gary for the first time, I was left with an impression that he is energetic, highly qualified teacher who is always willing to help you and explain things; a professional man of high principle. I came to the studio in order to improve my grammar and prepare for tests. Gary managed to train me for those tests in just a 3-month period, which would normally take 9 months. From my second grade in elementary school, I have encountered a huge amount of English teachers and now I can say with certainty that Gary is the best of all!

If you study with Gary, you will get even more than you expect from having lessons with a professional teacher of English. In reality, Gary is also a specialist in business. Thanks to that your English language course will be complimented with some elements from an MBA course.  You can discuss business-related topics with your English teacher and expect that he will bring a lot of useful subject-related information into your discussion.  I can recommend Gary to everyone who wants to put his efforts into studying English and especially business English.

My teacher is Gary. During this time he has become my best teacher. He is always friendly, considerate and certainly vindictive when you do not do homework :-) This man can easily make you remember everything he says in great detail. He always provides great studying recourses; not only is it interesting to work with Gary, he is also entertaining due to his perfect sense of humor! One more thing- Gary makes the best coffee in the Arbat Street!

Gary is a highly qualified professional who can adjust his approach to the particular student and explain the material in a way that he would understand. Beside English, you can talk to Gary about basically anything because he is a many-side person; he has travelled a lot… His proficiency in the Russian language is to be envied by Russian native speakers. Great man and experienced teacher.

Gary – is the Space! I have very high requirements, but this is a Teacher with a God-given talent! Interesting, open person and beside that a star teacher, who knows how to effectively teach his subject, how to captivate any student, how to motivate them to study, which is not an easy thing to do with adult students. Magically, he is able to even make me do my homework with pleasure! Gary – is my admiration! I recommend him to everyone!

I have had classes with Gary for only 6 months. The most unusual in his approach is that he teaches you to feel the language. Gary explains grammar together with describing some real life examples, situations and emotions that you want to express. After that, Grammar structures automatically murge into your speech and you just don't know how to say it differently. I have noticed that now I don't need time to think before I speak, I am not looking for a specific Grammar rule or clarifying-specifying words: I just know how to express what I mean through specific Grammar constrcutions.  Beside his professionalism, Gary is very well-educated, it is so interesting to discuss all kinds of topics with him.  I have never had such a teacher, with which time flies…

I feel comfortable having lessons with Gary because he is so attentive and considerate to his students. He helps to overcome barriers in communication and provides a deep understanding of the English language philosophy and spirit so you could start sensing it. For me it is one of the most important factors in teacher-student interactions

My teacher is a true professional, who provided me with exposure of English language world. The programme was professionally adapted to my specific goals, there was nothing that we studied that was only for the sake of appearance or because it was in the curriculum.

Also it was definitely interesting to have classes with Gary – his great career and an MBA allows him to do more for the students than just teach the English language.  I think this result is unachievable for other teachers in other language schools.

Gary is a great teacher, in his lessons you learn a lot of interesting things, you laugh, have good conversations in informal surrounding – and at the same time master your English. I am a person who is not easy to surprise but Gary's method did surprise me. The tasks are not boring or tedious, a lot of them require good imagination and other non-typical abilities. When doing these exercises you learn something you didn’t know before, they are very useful and you spend quality time doing them.

Gary has 3 diplomas  (Ph.D., MBA, MArt) from USA Universities. He uses standard course books, but his method of teaching is unique, adjusted for each student, very intellectual. Gary shows you how grammar structures work; he doesn’t make you learn all those numerous and often contradictory rules by heart. Gary constantly provides you with information about English culture, traditions and American and Canadian idioms, which help you to understand English and make it a mean of communication. It is really interesting to discuss the peculiarities of living abroad, as well as science and business topics. Gary has a talent for teaching, which is proved by his teaching practice as a professor in the USA University. Making a long story short – it is expensive but extremely effective. 

Improvement in my conversational English is quite noticeable, I can now take part in negotiations, practice my English.  Lately I have noticed that I get irritated when professional interpreters fail to convey some details, I have to correct them.  I routinely use slang and idioms and understand the way native English speakers think, I know their customs in the US, Canada or Britain, which helps me build a better rapport with them.  My pronunciation has improved greatly, so much so that sometimes they say my accent sounds a bit Canadian (compared to an incomprehensible Russo-Scottish one I had before). I enjoy watching news, films and cartoons in English

The Studio's Arbat office is very conveniently located, classically remodeled, looks more like an office of a private attorney.  The schedule is almost always flexible if I need to change something.  Any such changes are made on the first come first serve basis for permanent clients.  I do not recommend putting off lessons till fall.  Lessons are actively enriched by the use of multimedia for practically every aspect of language learning.

Gary is an open and many-sided person with a great sense of humor. He always shows understanding if I didn’t do my homework, but during the class he would always give me some tasks that would make up for it, and at the same time would offer me a cup of tee or coffee and keep smiling.
