Over the past 10 years I have been working within a teaching environment at academic level with people of different nationalities from all walks of life who were studying Russian for a variety of reasons.
This gave me a better understanding of students' needs and difficulties they encounter while learning and provided invaluable experience.
My objective is not make you learn 5000 Russian words and grammar rules, but to enable you use them for effective communication taking into account cultural peculiarities and differences. As someone who has lived in the UK for the past ten years I am well aware how that aspect can hinder successful communication and I take it into account while planning my lessons.
A foreign language is a window to a whole new culture, let's open it together!
I started classes with Ina about a year ago when I decided to prepare for Russian Proficiency exams.
I had previously studied Russian on and off, but Ina added structure and consistency to my learning. Proficiency exams are notorious for their tricky questions and rather tough examiners . Ina definitely boosted my confidence, constantly motivating me to speak with stimulating activities and engaging questions.
She is a patient and confident tutor. I really appreciate her patience and approach to explaining multiple tricky moments of complicated Russian grammar.
Have been studying with Ina for over two years. Started as a complete beginner looking to learn Russian due to my frequent business trips to Moscow. I am now pretty confident speaking and can even write a more or less decent email when needed.
Ina has been very helpful and patient with me (I am not a born linguist!). We have made a great progress.
I have known Ina for over three years.
She is a very competent and patient tutor. I found her lessons effective - we would always address the areas I needed to work on specifically. I also liked the kind of study materials she provided me with-modern and entertaining, not the kind of dated Soviet textbooks I sometimes had to work with at Uni!
Ina helped me a great deal when I was preparing for my graduation exams in Russian and later on tutored me for Russian proficiency test which I passed with 88%!
I highly recommend Ina as a tutor.
