Teaching languages is not only my passion, but also a constant subject of my curiosity. I learn about Russian language every day with my students; we help each other understand its cultural and historical background.

My other passion is Fine Arts and it blends together with languages very well! I like incorporating creative techniques into my teaching methodology; it makes lessons fun and information easy to digest. I use audio-visual aids and have an extensive database of audios, videos, movies and presentations to help you understand Russian language from all its aspects.

I have flexible working hours, but prefer a responsible learner who arranges lessons in advance. It is preferable to meet for a lesson every week, as it enables a steady progress. Our main goal is to achieve strong and long lasting results in a minimal period of time. All lessons are tailored to your needs and homework is provided.

I have travelled to and worked in the UK, US, Canada, China, Indonesia, Italy, Lithuania, Norway and New Zealand and have a sound understanding of different cultures. With this cultural sensitivity in mind, I can explain a unique mentality of Russians.
