Steady progress!

I have been learning beginning Russian with Irina has she has been patient and understanding. Learning a new language is difficult but I always look forward to my lessons as I see steady progress each time.

Jeff, 11 lessons with Irina

Very gifted and patient teacher

This was my first real session with Irina. I had tried to pound the Russian alphabet and sounds into my 65 year old brain. Irina knew just how much to push me forward and was very patient. At the end of the lesson I remember feeling like my brain had just awakened from a 45 year long nap. It feels really good to be learning again. I feel very lucky to have such a talented teacher.

Amazing! I passed my exam!

Not only was Irina super pleasant to work with and I felt like I was having thoughtful conversations with a good friend each time we met, but she helped me reach my goal. My goal was to pass a Russian language fluency certification (Interagency Language Roundtable or ILR) which is a US federal government fluency rating and exam system. Irina developed a curriculum for me specifically to prepare me for this test and even did a few 'practice test' conversations. With only a handful of lessons and a limited amount of time, thanks to Irina's help, I passed the test and got the Level 3 fluency rating, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks Irina!!! I recommend everyone to work with her :)!

Knowledgeable and kind!

Irina is very patient and kind, I'll be the first to admit that I have no idea what I'm doing (yet), but she makes me feel confident that I will after a few lessons :)
