Our Russian Tutors

As the Principal Tutor, I understand how important it is to get the right people for the job in order to run a successful teaching business.

So I spend a lot of time and effort sourcing the best Russian teachers in London. Over the years, Just Russian has created a team of highly professional and effective teachers who have been working with us for many years and have a vast amount of knowledge and experience in Russian teaching.

All our Russian teachers are:

  • Russian native speakers with University degrees and often PhDs in Linguistics and language teaching.
  • Bilingual in Russian and English, often with good command of other European languages.
  • Familiar with all the commercially published teaching materials (textbooks) and develop their own materials to supplement the textbooks.
  • Familiar with the requirements for the Russian language exams in the UK, such as GCSE or TRKI.
  • Serious professionals with years of language teaching experience in both Russia (university level) and the UK.
  • Dedicated to the teaching profession and passionate about teaching Russian and promoting Russian culture: they are freelancers, but teaching is their full-time job.
  • Personally selected and approved by me and work with my support.

The tutor selection process includes interviews and trial lessons with real students, in my presence, as well as close monitoring of all the classes and receiving constant feedback from the clients.

When a new course is set up, I will send you a profile/short CV of your tutor, and after the first lesson I will contact you to make sure you are happy to work with this particular tutor. I try, as much as I can, to match the right tutor to the right course, judging from people’s personal qualities and interests. This is especially important in 1:1 lessons, where a good working relationship between tutor and student is vital.

At the end of the course, I ask our clients to fill out an assessment form, which is designed, among other things, to assess the tutor’s performance.
