About this tutor

I teach conversation-based classes and adjust them to the needs of a student. I am a trained teacher and a researcher in how the brain accomodates languages. This combination allows for really efficient teaching that shows in a fast progress of my students.

I enjoy communication with people of different cultures. I love the challenge of finding the most efficient teaching strategy that would meet the needs of every individual student. I learn a lot from every student.

    Marina is an excellent English teacher and a true expert in linguistics! I am very thankful and glad that I found her! At the end of last year I was hopeless and did not know how to pass my final exam of my master's degree, which is held English. Luckily I met Marina and she helped me improve my English skills in a short time. Thanks to Marina's support I was able to complete all my important exams excellently. Marina's lessons are well organized, structured and always very interesting. I have not only found a very good English teacher but also a very nice and pleasant person! I am looking forward to future lessons with Marina and can only recommend her!

    Marina is the best English teacher in my practice. We started from the zero level and three years later with her help I managed to publish a scientific monograph in English.

    Marina has both a native and a scholar's knowledge of language, yet she is able to connect on an everyday level with her students. She is aspirational in her belief that anyone can become language proficient. She is quite encouraging and a cheerful presence to her students

  • Kate

    Marina is a very experienced teacher and she always adapt her lessons very well to the performance level of the student. Each lesson is planned individually and it’s simply a lot of fun.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I schedule a 20-minute trial session to show how I teach. Then, we talk. I ask and answer questions. We choose what type of classes will work better for the student. How much homework, if any at all, the student wants / will be able to fulfill. We discuss class frequency and schedule the next class.
