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!

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!

I am very happy to recommend Olga Bondareva as a Russian teacher. Olga has been my Russian teacher for the past three years [or longer?] and in that time has assisted me enormously with the study of the Russian language. Olga is punctual and always well prepared. Her classes include a combination of grammar, conversation and vocabulary, are always varied and never repetitive. Olga’s bright and cheery manner also make learning Russian with her a real pleasure. For any student of the Russian language who is determined to improve his or her Russian language capabilities, Olga is the ideal teacher.
