I am a qualified, UK trained teacher and an experienced Russian / Dutch / English / Maths / 11+/ RAF entrance exam tutor with proven track record in results and ability to successfully personalise my students' learning, based on their individual circumstances and preferences, whether it is learning Russian or Dutch for business, leisure and travelling or helping children develop their English and Maths skills further.

I can provide all levels of support: private language lessons for adults, document translations to or from Russian and Dutch, language tutoring of bilingual children/teens and fast-track language introduction/beginners courses. In addition, I have a particularly wide knowledge of providing general Russian/Dutch teaching for adults travelling to Russia, including countries of former USSR, where Russian is still one of the official languages, Belgium or the Netherlands, for work or family reasons.

I have completed a BA (Hons) degree in education (graduated with First Class Honours), Postgraduate teacher training course (PGCE) and Masters in Education (MEd). I actively teach in British and International schools, thus this experience enables me to understand and apply current, most up-to date, teaching techniques and assists me in making the learning experience of my students engaging, productive and stimulating. I have successfully tutored students in preparation for their SATs, 11+, GCSEs, A-Levels and RAF entrance exams over the last 10 years and find working with students on raising their academic ability and general motivation levels an extremely rewarding experience.

I am extremely flexible and reliable and I appreciate the importance of meeting the requirements of each one of my students in a shortest time possible. Therefore, I usually meet my prospective students for a free and totally informal chat, prior to agreeing to a programme of study. This allows me to assess your individual needs and design the best bespoke tuition program.

UPD: I am fully booked from September 2019, however I will be happy to put you on my waiting list and will let you know if my tutoring commitments will change throughout the year. I also occasionally accept extra students for Russian language, who are happy to be flexible with their tutoring schedule.
