About Me

Hi!
I'm a native Russian speaker, but most importantly, I'm a linguist. I have a diploma from St.-Petersburg State University where I was specifically taught to teach languages. This means that I can explain complicated stuff so that it doesn't look so complicated anymore. Sounds about right, doesn't it?

I'm also a very relaxed, open-minded and easy-going person, which means I like to have a no-stress classroom. I work at my students' pace, I don't rush them and keep the positive vibe throughout the course. Russian is not the easiest language, but who said overcoming challenges can't be fun?

But I'm also a professional, so my lessons are structured and each of them achieves a specific purpose (usually, several, in fact). This means that you will see your progress. You'll remember more words, you'll start building more complex sentences, you'll be able to understand native speakers better. In short, you will learn Russian!

The auxiliary language of my lessons is English and I also speak French and German, but our main focus is Russian (right?), so don't worry if you don't have a high level in those languages. We'll manage!

Looking forward to meeting you!
