Russian Teachers

Tamara Beretić

I am a language enthusiast, a professional linguist fluent in four languages: Serbian, Russian, English, and German. My teaching career started four years ago when I finished my Master’s studies in Linguistics. Over the four years, I gained an international experience both teaching at a university in Austria and by private tuition. Languages are my passion and the possibility to share it with others is extremely rewarding and fulfilling.

Elena Walsh

I am native Russian. I studied languages at the university in Grozny and taught Russian in school in Riga. I taught Russian to adults involved in Chernobyl’s child welfare project in Ireland. I am very passionate about teaching and introducing my students to the Russian language and culture.
Let’s have an enjoyable experience of discovering Russian!
