In my classes, I will give you:
- an understanding of sentence construction in the Russian language;
- a thorough understanding of Russian grammar logics;
- a vocabulary that you will need in everyday life in Russia and Russian speaking countries;
- word formation strategies;
- an acquaintance with Russian culture (literature, history of Russian arts and cinema).
For classes, I use study books and other resources that are used in major English speaking universities where the Russian language is taught and studied as well as study books written in Russia. I always look for the material that will fit your needs better!
I care a lot about making the rules clear and easy to remember. An accurate grounding in the language’s grammar is important, but equally the lessons are moderately informal.
If you are interested in learning Russian from me in some non traditional way, for example, reading Russian classics in original, or reading film literature together (film scripts, important theoretical works by Soviet avant gardists) please feel free to reach out to me!
You can see examples of my communicative exercises in my blog:
I am native speaker of Russian, and a fluent English speaker. I have a background in Film Studies (that's my MA) and Computer Science (my BA).
I have more than 7 years of teaching experience. I will be happy to teach you my native language and share the love I feel for it.
I plan the lessons so that they fit your needs. I also make sure that you not only learn, but enjoy the experience. Relaxed and enjoyable learning is what makes studying most effective.

Ira is a fantastic tutor. She is friendly, hard working, and her lessons are always well prepared, thorough, and enjoyable. I’d highly recommend her as a tutor for any level of Russian student.
Irina has been my tutor for more than 2 years now, and I am really happy with her method, and flexibility. She knows how to explain Russian grammar that was so confusing for me. She has a great sense of humour, and also can tell a lot about Russian literature and cinema. Totally recommended!
