Conversational Russian Course/Russian Grammar Course.

I have recently completed the intensive conversational and grammar group courses provided by Akademik. Although I have previously taken one-on-one lessons, these group courses gave me the opportunity to practice conversational Russian with other students at a similar level to myself. It provided me with a lot of confidence, and I would be very happy to undertake similar group courses in the future!

Thank you very much Ben! I look forward to future courses and one-on-one lessons.

Outstanding teaching!

Mrs Maria is one of the best teachers who has ever taught me. I studied with her under the A - levels program, and Maria found an individual teaching approach based on my progress. She managed to diversify the lessons in every possible way, got in touch outside the lessons if necessary, was very patient, understanding and kind to me, had an excellent knowledge of the subject and the content of the exam, which is important to me, I think, like many students. I loved her lessons and for the first time someone’s teaching and lessons brought me such pleasure. I wrote my Summer 2023 exam with confidence and no difficulties - thanks to Maria’s lessons. I highly recommend Maria as a tutor for any Russian level!

Flexible and Thorough Russian Tutor

Flexible and thorough tutor! I asked to be "thrown into the deep end" since I learn best that way, and Maria was able to curate a program that was challenging but thorough. I really enjoy our productive lessons and hope to continue on a more consistent schedule.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience of learning Russian with an experienced and patient tutor.

As a student, I’ve found Maria very helpful over the course she’s been teaching me, as I slowly understand Russian at my own pace, which has been beneficial as I have not felt rushed or stressed during my lessons. Maria is always there to help when I’m struggling with words that I find difficult to pronounce or understand the meaning of. Maria’s teaching method includes having fun, such as tongue twisters, because before when learning a language, I often used to struggle with pronunciation and found it difficult. I feel like I have made a lot of progress and look forward to see my progress in the next year.

My daughter has had lessons with Maria by Skype to prepare for a Russian GCSE. She said that Maria was very helpful and supportive through the process, and has helped her score a grade 9 in her exams.

Maria conducted our A level and GCSE Russian oral examinations with great efficiency and professionalism. She put the pupils at ease and managed to get the most out of them in the examinations. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Maria has been working for us as a translator of English into Russian for over two years. She has translated in excess of 25,000 words into Russian during her time working for Lingua (UK). She is prompt in her delivery and remains an important member of our translator panel.

Maria is an excellent teacher. She is meticulous and pays attention to all aspects of learning Russian. As well as helping with the intricacies of grammar, Maria is equally attentive to the need to practice everyday language used in Russia. And not only does Maria help teach the language, but she also teaches her students about Russian culture and literature, which really brings the Russian language to life.

Maria's approach to language teaching is excellent, striking a perfect balance between practical conversation and grammatical instruction. Whatever your level of ability, she opens up the Russian language to make it accessible and understandable.

I have used Maria for some voice recording work, which she did effectively and professionally and to a very high standard.
