Information about Irina
I give individual and group lessons according to the requirements of my students. The duration may vary from 1 to 3 hours, where I combine conversational practice with grammar, I usually include all aspects of language learning such as listening, speaking, reading and writing. My principal aim is to achieve effective communication in the language I teach. I`m an enthusiastic and open to new challenges teacher, optimistic, positive, easy-going and happy. I search to make teaching an enjoyable activity opening new horizons for anyone who has decided to study foreign languages as it happened in my life. Speaking languages is a great opportunity to get to know the world around you and the world within yourself.

Experience: I received my higher education in the Russian State Pedagogical University named after Alexander Herzen at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, one of the best linguistic faculties of the country. I studied at the department of Spanish language and continued my studies of English as a second language. I started my teaching career in 2002 giving individual lessons. It helped me to receive experience in lesson planning, providing didactic materials, developing communicative skills of students and attending to their interests and requirements.
I am a Learning Support Assistant at Fareham College since September 2020.

Tutors Response :
Thank you so much Oliver, I really enjoy our conversations in Spanish and hope to be as helpful as I can. I am sure the issues are only temporary on your way to mastering the language.
We engaged Irina about a month ago to teach Spanish to a group of mature students after studying together for the last 2 years. Our experience of tutors has not ben particularly good to be frank but we have found Irina to be excellent in every respect. She teaches us against a set course programme but punctuating it with humour, lots of tips about current `street` terms and expressions and understanding.
We would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Tutors Response :
