Would you like to take your English to the next level? Are you studying art and would you like to achieve better results? Are you interested in learning Russian? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you came to the right place. My name is Arina, and my mission is to help you achieve desirable results in these three subjects.

Learning languages is not only about practising grammar rules and speaking, it is also about cultural awareness. That’s why there is such a close interconnection between languages and art. My professional and educational background is in linguistics and art, and these two areas complement each other really well. During our lessons, you will be immersed into a world of languages and creativity by using multiple senses: auditory, kinaesthetic and visual. This will help you digest new information in a short period of time. You will also be provided with an individual lesson plan where all your learning needs will be thoroughly addressed.

I have extensive experience teaching both young learners (primary and secondary school) and adult learners. Each student will learn according to their individual pace. Moreover, with my large database of interactive activities, games, videos, presentations and textbooks, you will find something new and exciting to learn every time you come to my class.

For me, working with a student is about building a unique relationship that is filled with mutual understanding, support and reflective practice. Learning something new is a gradual process. With a positive attitude, an abundance of learning materials and a wealth of experience, I have the right tools to support any student in this endeavour.
