Russian Tuition and Courses

Vlada Koroleva is Principal Tutor of Just Russian. Vlada and her tutors offer Russian lessons for students of all levels – from beginners to very advanced. Courses can vary from general colloquial Russian to Russian for special purposes (business, finance, banking, law, etc).

Rates for 1:1 lessons start at £35 per hour.

Why Choose Just Russian

By choosing Just Russian you’ll get the advantage of working with experienced professionals who have been running Russian courses in London for many years and who therefore understand your learning priorities and needs and have practical answers to your questions. You can meet the Principal Tutor before starting the course and get answers to all your questions. You can then rely on Vlada's help and support during your course, making sure that it is running smoothly and effectively. In case your tutor takes time off, Vlada will make sure you have a replacement tutor for the required period of time.

Benefits of a 1:1 Russian Course

The benefits of lessons on a one-to-one basis with an experienced tutor are obvious: your course will be tailor-made, you will be moving at your own pace, your progress will be closely monitored, and any problems you encounter in learning the language can be addressed specifically. Another popular option is lessons in a small group (2-3 people), if you want to concentrate on interactive conversational skills or simply learn with other people who are interested in the same subject.

Getting Started With Your Russian Course

Contact Vlada, by phone or email, to have a chat about your learning needs. This is your chance to get some friendly, free advice and information from somebody who knows all about Russian language teaching and learning!

Vlada will carefully assess your learning needs and time-schedule. We will not start a course with you unless we are sure that your objectives are realistic. Also, we will not require payment for blocks of hours upfront: you can pay as you go and stop the lessons at any time if for some reason you cannot carry on.

If you decide to go ahead with lessons, we will design a course suitable for you, and provide you with a training plan, an initial assessment report, a course description and a list of the most suitable course materials.

Our History

Just Russian is the British counterpart of a project that has been successfully running at Moscow State University since 1996. The Moscow project “Just English” is an English language teaching system that specialises in legal English for Russian lawyers. The system comprises course-work in several text books, which have proved extremely popular in Russia and other Russian speaking countries (where more than 250,000 copies have been sold). The authors of the Just English series were awarded a prestigious Shuvalov Prize (2002) for young authors at Moscow University. Just Russian has grown out of this success. It offers not only Russian courses but also useful materials, links and support for anyone interested in learning the Russian language and getting familiar with Russian culture.
