I guarantee that your Russian will improve dramatically! My Russian was acceptable but I reached a point that I was not seeing any progress. After trying with different teachers without results I met Yulia and my Russian improved dramatically. Probably, the best Russian teacher I ever had.

Julia Sutuginiene was preparing me for passing TORFL-3 examination. At the beginning of our studies my knowledge of Russian language was about TORFL-2 level.

As I took Russian lessons from different teachers I am confident to say that Julia Sutuginiene is one of the best teachers. I can state that I have a considerable progress in Russian and I have made a great step on the way of improving this language.

To my mind the main factor of this progress is because Julia is a very gifted teacher and she uses special methods of teaching. She is strict and she doesn’t give an opportunity for the pupils to waste their time in vain, every minute of her lesson is clearly planned and prepared beforehand, the plan of each lesson is thoroughly done and thought out.

My program was constantly corrected according to my demands and also taking into consideration the level of my understanding of the material. This fact confirms the high level of the teacher’s qualification. Julia never forgets what was done during the lessons, what is the planning for the next lesson, and she constantly checks up my homework, always uses various kinds of modern literature, a lot of audio materials, interesting video courses as well as her own working ups, and many other techniques.

I highly appreciate Julia’s professional qualities, qualification and pedagogical abilities and I will be glad to confirm my estimation and to give you additional data of her professional qualities in case you need them.

I wanted to reach out to thank Viktoria deeply for the Russian classes that we had together. Whilst at this time my schedule is not enabling me to continue with the classes, to my deep disappointment, the classes we had together were very useful and I do hope to restart again.
As a student at the very earliest level of learning Russian, Viktoria's methodology and approach was highly effective to my needs. I found her approach to be very effective and feel that she prepares a student to learn in a very holistic way, ensuring that the basis of the language learning is covered and providing strong foundations to really learn Russian in a professional manner. I also found her approach to be highly motivating and encouraging to me. Even though the classes were conducted remotely, I did not feel the 'distance' in my learning, due to her motivational approach and personal attitude towards teaching.
I hope that soon I will be able to continue with my classes, but in the meantime, I thank her for the knowledge shared with me and wish her all the best in bringing language skills to others!
Best regards,
