"Hi, my name is Irina!

If you need to study German or Russian to help with your career growth, to study/work abroad, for language tests, or just for your personal satisfaction….then it would be my pleasure to embark on that journey with you. For me, each new student’s enthusiasm is a source of inspiration that propels me to new heights.

I am a native Russian speaker, and graduated from Pyatigorsk Linguistics University, one of Russia’s top-notch linguistics universities and research centers. My specialty is teaching German and English as a second language, and I also received a second M.A. in teaching Russia as a foreign language from the Pushkin Russian Language Institute in Moscow.

Over my more than 20 years in teaching, I have trained people of all stripes for all kinds of career and personal goals: for communication with foreign partners, to improve their grades at school, or to pass university entrance exams. I work as a language instructor at a Washington language institute, where I gained a lot of experience teaching Russian, German, and cross-cultural awareness to U.S. government employees.

While teaching, I rely on not only my extensive experience, but also try to keep up to date with the latest textbooks, methodologies, multi-media programs, and other tools for teaching foreign languages.

My teaching approach is comprehensive, and includes all the components of language: phonetics (working on correct pronunciation), grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension, reading, and speaking fluently. However, regardless of a student’s age, I also make every effort to organize lessons in different formats so that they are not monotonous.

I would be happy to hear from you!" less...
