"Tanya has guided me superbly through the challenging complexities of the Russian language in a way that is structured, engaging, immersive and, most importantly, tailored to my needs and learning style. An excellent teacher, I cannot recommend highly enough." Chris Bee, Head of Business Development, STFC

"I have been studying with Tanya for 6 months now. This is the second attempt at learning Russian in my life - the last spanned 2 years, and I can honestly say I have learned more in the past 6 months than I ever did in those 2 years. Russian is a challenging language to take on at any age. As an adult learner, I have most appreciated Tanya’s patience, and the fact that her lessons feel natural and adapted to me. I do not feel as though I am being rushed through a textbook or a set method of learning; instead I feel as though I am learning a real, useful language that I can confidently use outside of the classroom." Jack Knight, Medical student

"Tanya's Russian lessons are the highlight of my week! Taxing, helpful and great fun'.' Sara Stowe, Classical performer of early and contemporary music

"Lessons with Tanya are great fun and the potentially overwhelming prospect of mastering a new alphabet and making new and unfamiliar sounds becomes more manageable...".   Susy Jepson, Senior Solicitor

"Tanya's lessons are exactly what I was hoping for: emphasis is on communication - using and understanding the language in real life and practical contexts. Lessons are personalised to my needs and are engaging. Tanya herself is friendly, confident, and has a great way of ensuring necessary grammar is tackled in digestible chunks. I know my Russian will improve greatly through her lessons." Jessica Smith, Teacher/ special needs school

"Our 10 years old son has done 3 lessons so far with Tanya, and loves it. He enjoys the lessons and finds her enthusiastic. She has been very reliable . Very pleased". John/Florence Simmonds, Parents.

"I have had Russian tutoring with Tanya for a year and a half. I have studied Russian before and I wanted to continue it by doing a Russian GCSE. I have recently taken the exam summer of June 2016 and have achieved an A*. We are both very pleased with this result! I would 100% recommend Tanya as she is particularly good with visual learning which I find helpful. It encouraged me to revise and understand the language in more depth. She also offers you plenty of exercise during the week to keep you on your toes !! If you are interested in Russian conversationally and possibly continuing it further to a qualification, this is a very supportive tutor who will help you achieve what you're after". Emma, Student at John Mason School, Abingdon

"Tanya is teaching my 7-year old son on Skype. It's going well. Tanya is always very professional and well prepared and keeps my son engaged the whole session. I was worried he wouldn't connect so well through Skype, but he loves it. Tanya uses presentations so can type things for my son as she is saying them, so just like in a face-to-face lesson. I have been very impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tanya". Charmaine Dean, Parent

 "Tetyana is an excellent tutor! Her lessons are well planned out, varied & so much fun. She uses a variety of techniques to help with comprehension, concentration & remembering what you’ve learned. I look forward to continuing my Russian lessons with her. Highly recommended tutor!" Yoanna, EFL student

"Tanya is a pleasure to work with. She is always thoroughly prepared and professional and gets straight down to work. My son has weekly Skype lessons with her and she makes the lessons interactive, through various programmes, and fun. She is technically savvy." Charmaine Dean, Personal administrative assistant

"Tanya is one of the very best language teachers I've ever had. If you want to learn Russian, look no further than Tanya." Astrid Nielsen-Schuurmans, Director, Wooden Shoes Translations Ltd
