Knowing any language makes you unique - you will have a chance to connect with people using their native language, a chance to understand their history, culture, books and movies - little, however some of the most important things in life. By learning Russian, you will get a true insight into a culture that otherwise would have been tucked far away - away from your reach.
There is only one conclusion - learn it - earn it - go for it. The choice is yours...
- What kind of experience do you have?
Being a student myself for many years, I know what to expect when one studies a foreign language.
I love teaching, and love watching my students progress.
- I taught Russian at the City of Bath College and at the Languages United in Bath.

Alla has been teaching my daughter for a year, she’s making great progress and is looking forward to another year of fun and content packed lessons. Alla’s very professional, helpful and encouraging, couldn’t wish for a better teacher!
Alla is an excellent tutor. If you want to learn Russian then Alla is the tutor for you.
Alla provides lots of excellent resources and is very helpful and enthusiastic. You can’t get a more dedicated tutor!
She's an excellent teacher and a great human being. I can't recommend her enough.
â€œI have been having lessons with Alla since April 2012. The lessons are excellent and Alla has taken me from complete beginner to preparing me for and successfully passing my TRKI Elementary exam.
Every lesson is well thought out and Alla covers topics from across a wide range of subjects as well as integrating cultural and social references. I really enjoy my lessons with Alla and look forward to completing more exams with Alla's tuition in the future.
â€œI always look forward to my Russian lessons with Alla. Alla's teaching technique is thorough yet relaxed. She uses lots of different learning exercises to ensure a really comprehensive study of the Russian language. Alla recognizes your strengths and implements targeted exercises for areas of weakness.
All lessons are well prepared and greatly integrated within one another, allowing one lesson to flow from the next smoothly. Alla also explains the customs and traditions of Russian culture which gives you a real insight in Russia. Most importantly, Alla is warm, friendly and approachable and one can see its obvious how passionate she is towards teaching Russian”.
Just wanted to thank you for Saturday's lesson. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it and it was brilliant to come away with a little speech to use at the wedding.
Alla's teaching, support and guidance is excellent!
When first I started perusing Russian in her lessons, I already knew some odd words and phrases but I lacked a deeper understanding and how to use the language in day to day terms. Since that time, having Alla as my teacher, I have learned many new words, principles and more. I have also gained confidence in my ability because Alla always encourages me to do more, to sees the areas I need to focus on improving, and to have fun whilst learning!
I have been a student of Alla for 18 months and would never consider stopping now. Her endless patience and enthusiasm compliment an easy but effective teaching style. What she has taught me has been a great help in my business as well as being interesting and a lot of fun.
Before I began my lessons with Alla, I was really struggling with my Russian course at university; however, with Alla's help, I soon improved a great deal. Alla's lessons were always varied and interesting and she allowed me to focus on the areas where I felt I needed to improve. She was extremely supportive and understanding and my confidence in using the language grew immensely.
