I am an experienced Russian teacher, passionate about teaching my mother tongue. I have been very successful in helping students of all age groups towards their goals.
I have Russian-language programmes ranging from primary school levels getting into the Cyrillic alphabet, on to the earlier stages of reading and writing, to older students who are approaching GCSE, or even aspiring towards an A-star result. For adult students I offer tuition at all levels, from beginners to people with some knowledge and advanced students who are achieving high results in Russian.

review(s) for Marina.
A brilliant teacher and a caring person takes serious interest in the needs of the student, adapts lessons to students needs and programmes lessons to achieve targets, aware of the needs of the GCSE Edexcel syllabus. Thanks for your help and support in making Russian so much more enjoyable and easier.
Marina was very helpful in prepping me for a presentation I had to conduct in Russian. You can tell she has a lot of experience teaching people. I would highly recommend Marina to anyone wanting to learn Russian or who wants to brush up on their Russian. I learnt a lot and felt more confident after our lessons.
An extremely passionate and enthusiastic tutor.
I would recommend anyone who wishes to learn about Russia as well as Russian to be taught by her.
Marina helped me with my Russian during the four years it took to get from absolute beginner to advanced speaker with a first-class degree. Throughout that time she was a wonderful teacher, always enthusiastic, friendly, supportive and thorough. She sourced a wide range of materials for our lessons in her own time, including grammar exercises, topical articles and relevant books, which meant that learning was always an engaging experience. She consulted me about my goals and what I wanted to achieve, and went beyond the call of duty to help me achieve them. When I came to her with a request for help with a complex academic writing and presentation task, she embraced the challenge and we worked together as a team with very successful results. Marina gave me the confidence to believe I really could succeed in Russian, and especially speak it fluently. I highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone looking to learn this beautiful language, whatever their current level of knowledge.
