This is how 2 referees rated Tanya:
I am a native Russian speaker. I originate from the St. Petersburg region which is considered to be the cradle of the classical Russian language. I speak standard Russian.
I am a teacher by profession with degrees in Chemistry, Biology and English and more than 20 years of teaching experience. I am a positive, friendly, hardworking and reflective teacher.
I moved to the UK in 2006 and since enjoy tutoring my native language and science.
My hobbies are healthy living, interior design, reading and writing in English, making and publishing my own educational resources.
• Russian - all levels and all ages.
I have more than 15 years of experience of private tuition to students of different nationalities, abilities, levels and needs including primary, secondary school, GCSE and university students. I have also taught business Russian, Russian for tourists and just for pleasure.
• Chemistry and Biology – up to GCSE.
I have 9 years of teaching Chemistry and Biology in secondary schools. I obtained a large variety of practical skills while working in a Science Laboratory and hence know all the practical aspects of Chemistry and Biology experiments from scratch.
• English – English as a foreign language.
I have more than 10 years of experience of teaching English in schools and privately.
I was a lecturer of Business English in Kyiv Economic Management Institute.
I work one-to-one, via Skype or Zoom.
As a tutor firstly I identify the student’s specific needs and preferences and then I tailor learning material for each student. Each student will get support in a timely and targeted way; I stretch and challenge them if they require. I also keep a track record for every student in order to monitor their success closely.
I tend to give to a student regular homework which then should be sent back to me for marking and feedback. My feedback will help a student to be clear in where they were wrong and where they need to focus. This provides support which helps them progress.
Finally, I have plenty of up-to-date learning materials and resources. There is no need for extra expenses as a student will be sent all the necessary learning materials electronically. They include study books, student’s workbooks, worksheets, tests, audio/video files, home reading books, etc. All the resources are up-to-date and engaging.
From my Russian lessons a student will learn how to read from the first lesson and will be involved in dialogues and speaking in every lesson. I will be gradually improving student’s pronunciation and brushing up on their phonetics and grammar. A student will be practicing their conversational skills in a variety of life situations e.g. in the street, in the bank or in shops, etc. I will also help them to learn and understand Russian culture and traditions.
With every lesson a student’s knowledge and confidence will grow and I do my best to make that learning journey quick, easy and enjoyable.

Her lessons are logical, well taught and well worth the money.
My daughter has written: Tanya is really good at engaging with questions about day-to-day life to help improve conversation skills and also helps build up new and interesting vocabulary. She goes over everything multiple times to help consolidate new information which I find really helpful, and always asks if I have any questions. Generally a super supportive and informative teacher :)
I am pleased that you are satisfied with my tutoring, it is always easier for me and more rewarding to have such attentive students.
Thank you for your comments,
She approaches her teaching with consideration and care.
Would definitely recommend
Tania has a caring, compassionate, fun and direct teaching style, making our daughter pay attention and be fully engaged in the lessons. She uses a combination of visual aids, books, a laptop and physical games to keep our daughter entertained and educated simultaneously allowing her to learn whist having fun.
We highly recommend Tania as a tutor and will be remaining with her as long as she is able to teach.
I must say that it is easy teaching Victoria because she is such an intelligent and pleasant girl.
Thank you for kind comments. I hope I can continue to satisfy your needs and enjoy working with you.
That is very kind of you to say these things. But a good teacher is always made to look better with a good student.
You are a very capable, hardworking and grateful student and I am enjoying preparing my lessons for you.
It is a pleasure for me to teach you Russian language and culture.
My reason for learning Russian is that my other half is Russian and her family speak next to no English. After every lesson I feel more confident with the language, I have had many lengthy conversions with my girlfriend's Family with little to no problems.
Tanya has a very reasonable lesson price, she is resourceful with materials and adjusts teaching styles to match the individuals needs, furthermore in the lesson she provides a brief insight into the Russian culture and History.
I would recommend Tanya as a Teach of the Russian Language, she is worth every penny.
Your inquisitive mind and hard work have brought you from the basics to the high level you are at the moment. You have been on a remarkable journey in your learning and it was my pleasure just to accompany you in it.
Now you are at the gates of the whole world of Russian language and it is open for you to continue your deserved path.
Thank you Tanya!
