I am married to a Russian man and we have a two year old daughter Anna together. I began taking Russian classes with Irina six months ago with the hope of eventually being able to talk to my husband and his family in Russian. When I started the classes I only knew a few words in Russian. I am now able to read, write and even have simple conversations. Irina’s classes introduced me to the Russian language in small mangable pieces, allowing me to make consistent progress without feeling overwhelmed. I feel like I have learned a lot in a short space of time and I already feel more confident communicating with my husband’s family.

Russian is a difficult language but it is an interesting and stimulating challenge. It makes it easier when you feel you’re making progress. Doing individual classes is certainly a help as Irina is a diligent and experienced teacher. I’ve also been getting an interesting insight into the culture and people of Russia which is great.
Irina would be top of my list for anyone or any business that would like their employees to have a second language. Irina is second to one. I could not rate her properly here as there is nobody to compare her against. Her achievements speak for themselves.

I found Irina to be a fantastic Russian teacher. She is a very clear communicator and the one – to – one classes are very valuable as she focused on any area I wished. I enjoyed attending the classes and I would strongly recommend her.

I need to say that Irina is one of the most thorough profesionals that I have ever worked with . I have been attending classes with her for nearly a year and I am always impressed with the level of effort and attention that she puts into every class . There is nothing such thing as a stupid question in her classes . If something is not understood she will go to extreme lengths to explain it in a way that you understand . If you need personal tution look no further . She will tailor the classes to suit your needs and level . She has to be one of the best Russian teachers around .
Irina taught me Russian for six months and I cannot praise her highly enough. She was superb in de-mystifying what for many is a strange and challenging language and made learning Russian as simple as possible. Had I not emigrated I would still be doing Russian with Irina. She gave me a solid base and I have continued learning Russian where I now live. I would not hesitate in recommending Irina to anybody who wishes to learn the Russian language.
