I’m a teacher of Russian and EFL who has a real passion for teaching. I’m originally from Moscow, Russia. I’ve been teaching Russian as a foreign language for the last 9 years in the south west of England. I have wide experience working with people of different ages, abilities and backgrounds.
In my lessons I put an emphasis on conversation and spoken Russian. I use games, videos, audios and different resources to make my lessons varied and interesting for my students. I know that many people consider Russian as one of the most difficult languages to learn. I try to show my students that learning Russian should be an enjoyable and fun experience and it isn’t as hard as people think.

My lessons aren’t just about the language. We also learn Russian culture, traditions and customs. I want my students to achieve their best at the end of each course and I’m always there to help and move them in the right direction.

Originally from Russia, I have lived for most of my life abroad: in the Maldives, Thailand, Dubai and now the UK. I studied multiple disciplines in Russia and Canada and worked with people of over 120 nationalities. I have a pedagogic degree in teaching languages and extensive professional teaching experience. As my family, relatives, and friends live in Russia, I spend a lot of time in my home country and maintain close ties with its culture and heritage, which I like to incorporate into my classes. I will share with you the insights into the truly Russian way of life, its authentic traditions, art, theatre, and literature. I believe that the learning process should be fun, engaging, and enjoyable, and I will use lots of interesting materials to make you captivated by the fascinating world of Russian language and culture.
