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.

I met Alexandra three years ago. At that time I was a post-graduate student at the Catholic University of Milan and I was conducting research for my doctoral dissertation in Moscow. I approached a Russian language school because I wanted to improve my spoken Russian, and I registered for individual classes with Alexandra. She is an extremely competent teacher – friendly, with an excellent command of her subject. Perhaps most of all I appreciated the fact that she was interested in linguistics, and we could discuss some of the topics that I was examining as part of my research. I still have the book by M. Kronhouse that she gave me!

As an «иностранка» in Moscow, learning Russian is vitally necessary for me in order to survive, both in office and on the streets. As a result of studying with Elnura, even only in the weekends for a few hours, I made a significant progress just in one year.
I’d highly recommend courses of Elnura as she is

  • Very patient: never fed up with reminding when I couldn’t repeat anything after last lesson
  • Always well prepared: prepares tests, vocabulary lists, etc. before the lessons specific to me
  • Flexible: arranges lessons’ content according to my mood and demands, not tied up with her schedule only
  • Versatile: not sticking to one method, also enriches lesson with interactive plays, listenings and videos
  • Friendly: I haven’t felt shy even in the first lessons thanks to her social skills and good manner
  • Multilingual: In order to explain complex phrases, she even makes her research in my native language Turkish in addition to English

I believe that Elnura will be very helpful to anyone who wants to learn Russian no matter in which level he/she is already.

Wish you joyful lessons with Elnura!
