I have been very impressed with the teaching of Tatiana Martin during our Skype lessons over the past 6 months. The lessons are easy to arrange, with a lot of flexibility with times and dates, and this has meant lessons can easily fit my schedule. More importantly, the lessons have been interesting and useful, with a range of engaging materials and topics and lots of suggestions for follow up individual study. This has really maximised my study time and enabled me to improve my overall fluency in a short period. Tatiana is a really competent teacher with a great understanding of pedagogic issues, which really instils a lot of confidence in the student, but on top of that she is also a really open and friendly person. Highly recommended.

All in all, the lessons were easy to organise and the school very professional. Paying for the lessons in blocs was no trouble with Yulia and the school's administration giving prompt replies to all my emails. It was really straightforward.

Yulia is a diligent, interested and accomplished teacher. Working as a translator and teacher myself, it´s easy to see just how prepared, bighearted, and engaged she is. She very intently contributes to her students´ growth. There is a great assortment of interesting resources she kindly makes available on Russificate, as well as constant posts on language and culture and new exercises. By the replies on her page, I know I´m not the only student advancing. She is, indeed, very considerate and devoted to this project. Having family roots in Russia, I´m very glad Yulia is helping me better understand part of my cultural heritage. She´s been teaching me for about six months, and I think of her as a friend already. I find her truly inspiring.

Katya has been my Russian tutor for about 5 months and has done an excellent job at teaching me the basics of Russian. She follows a logical and clear structure to her lessons and ensures my understanding. I have appreciated the pace she sets for my progression through the lessons so that I am challenged but also have enough time for review and comprehension. Katya has great balance of asking consistent questions each lesson to help me gain confidence in my speaking skills. I also appreciate her use of varied mediums including recorded dialogues, written texts and review of homework to help me learn Russian in many contexts.

I have been told by my colleagues at work that when I speak in Russian, I do not have an accent. This shows how much care Katya has put into my speaking skills!
