(16 student reviews)


My name is Arina and I started teaching in 2005.

I like incorporating creative techniques into my teaching methodology; it makes lessons fun and information easy to digest. I use audio-visual aids and have an extensive data base of audios, videos, movies and presentations to help you succeed.

It is preferable to meet for a lesson every week for steady progress. The main goal is to achieve strong and long lasting results. I lived in the UK, travelled to the US, Canada, China, Indonesia, Italy, Lithuania, Norway and New Zealand. I believe that learning is a journey and exploration; the more you learn, the more chances you have to become successful.

I look forward to meeting you.
