This is how 4 referees rated Natalia:
Certified professional language teacher with more than 30 years of experience, MA in Linguistics and Teaching Languages as well as Cambridge CELTA Teaching Certificate. My priorities are my students' confidence and convenience while studying, and their satisfaction with the final results.
I love teaching, it has been my life's work. For me it's more than just a profession, it's a state of mind and soul, when you as a teacher and a person want to constantly grow and develop, open new doors and look into new cultures. It isn't just for self-development but also for sharing with students and carrying them with you. I'd like to share the knowledge of Russian with my students and open the door to the huge world of Russia.
I have mastered a wide range of teaching techniques which afford me to be very flexible in teaching and to make each lesson tailored, where the main principal is to simplify things, make them fun and easy to learn.
I've been teaching languages since I graduated from the university, starting with teaching at a secondary school, then as a senior teacher at Kazan State University, one of the oldest and biggest universities in Russia, blue chip companies among which is Johnson & Johnson (Spoken and Business Russian) as well as giving face -to-face and on-line private tuition, which all in all comprise the students’ age range 5 - 67…
My priorities are my students' confidence and convenience while studying, and their satisfaction with the final results.
That’s why I’m so very proud to say that my students have achieved many of their goals, whether it’s just a simple trip to Russia or passing their exams, living in bilingual families, helping their companies to strengthen relations with Russia and even working and living in Russia.I will help you to learn, step by step, at your own pace.
I provide my students with all the necessary materials as well as offer interactive games that they can play after lessons to increase their vocabulary.

I am learning for pleasure and want to be able to reach a conversational level. My son has a Russian partner and in September they are expecting their first child. So I am wishing to be able to talk with my grandchild who will grow up bilingual and my son can also now speak Russian.
Natalia understands my needs and I am really enjoying the process of learning this very different language. My memory is not the best however Natalia has an enormous repertoire of useful ways to help. She is very positive, encouraging, kind and understanding. She also has a sense of humour which make each lesson so enjoyable.
I look forward to every lesson and cannot recommend Natalia highly enough. She is a real gem of a find!! Jenny
Patient, professional and and well organised.
I am now seeing Natalie twice a week for fantastic one to one tutoring.
I recommend her.
