Custom-built language programs for beginner, intermediate and advanced learners. In my teaching I favour a mix of communicative and structural approaches with the focus on reading, listening and speaking. I focus on helping my students achieve their language goals.

My experience has been very positive! I learned so much practical knowledge and greatly enjoyed the learning experience. It is easy to schedule lessons and each lesson has a purpose. All my questions were able to be answered and we would build each week on the previous weeks material. I highly recommend this tutor.
I was very satisfied with my Russian lessons. Inna was always well prepared and offered a good mix of grammar and practice speaking. I would highly recommend her.
Inna was very professional and a pleasure to learn Russian with! Would highly recommend!
Inna is a good teacher and tutor.. She's flexible to your schedule, your needs (goals), and very intuitive for where you are, and adapts to you for your learning style.. Reccomended? Yes.
Having obtained tickets to the 2018 soccer world cup in Russia, I sought Inna's help so I could get by in Russia as a tourist. Her thorough and well-planned approach prepared me well for the everyday scenarios I would encounter, such as buying food or boarding trains. I strongly recommend Inna for anyone looking to better communicate in Russian.
I had my Russian lessons with Inna for few months. She's very dedicated to her teaching and is always professionally on top of the required material for each class and goes through things in logical order that would make the most sense in terms of learning and making progress. I really enjoyed having her as a teacher and managed to improve my skills, however, to achieve the perfect result for any class, obviously, practice plays a significant role!
