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! 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.
