*Reading skills
*Understanding connected speech in Russian
*Writing

I provide a variety of course work material to ensure the lessons are most effective and not monotonous.

Group rates and block booking discount

Reduced rate for morning time lessons

Translation services & Essays/Assignments corrections also offered.

Feel free to contact for further info or if you would like to arrange a trial lesson, and we can take it from there.

Experience

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!

Perfect! Ina is an excellent Russian Tutor! She is teaching me Russian in a very pleasant and fun way. I really enjoy our class and the way she teaches and explains things. I am impressively improving my Russian skills. I sincerely recommend Ina as Russian tutor.

Perfect! Ina is a very brilliant teacher! If you want to learn Russian, and you're serious about it, then learn with Ina.

S
Steven

Excellent! I can heartily recommend Ina as a Russian language teacher. She is knowledgeable, insightful, highlights shortcuts such as similarities between words and very importantly for a teacher she is patient and adjusted to my learning pace.

T
Talia

Perfect! From the outset, Ina's patience gave me the confidence to go at my own pace and she understood my way of learning to such a depth it felt as though every lesson was tailored for me. I surprised myself with how far my Russian came so quickly, in all aspects: writing, reading, speaking, listening and conversational. Ina is thorough, taking each step carefully, comfortably and being sure I understood everything before moving on, smiling the whole way. I was also given endless useful materials to read and watch outside of our lessons which took me leaps and bounds further when applied. I will continue our lessons when I'm back in the UK.

I studied with Ina for around six months while with my former company. The lessons helped my Russian improve for the first time in the several years since living in the country. This was both in terms of my spoken fluency and comprehension which I was able to put to use in my job, as well as my understanding of the more nuanced and idiomatic aspects of the language. Ina was easy to talk to, with a good rapport and atmosphere in the lessons. She was also particularly responsive to student requests and thoughtful when it came to finding work that targeted areas of the language in need of development. I would definitely recommend her and the school to anyone looking to get better at Russian!

Ina taught me business Russian on a weekly basis for almost a year. Ina was able to adapt her lessons both to the different levels required, and to the complex needs of our work. She created interesting, personalised lessons that were fun and engaging, and that focused on my needs. I enjoyed working with Ina enormously, and hope to do so in the near future

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.
Highly recommend!

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.

Highly recommended!

Taya

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.
