Premium tutoring for those who have tried everything.
I have been teaching for many years. My first English language class had eight people in it, aged between 25 (a secretary) and 75 (CEO). I was 20 at the time - and I was scared, like anyone setting off on a big adventure.

After that, I found myself working for big language centres on corporate projects and translations. As time went on, the demand for education overseas - in the UK, Europe and the USA - continued to increase. I moved on to preparing students for national and international tests - A-level, SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE and ЕГЭ. All those exams turned out to be much easier than I had expected. This is what I try to make clear to my students.

There might be a couple of scenarios which have brought you here today.

Scenario 1. You want to get a degree, probably overseas, but it's hard to know where to start. It's not like choosing between a cappuccino and a flat white; we are potentially talking about the most important decision in your life. Most importantly, you want to be sure that you are not missing any opportunities or wasting your time.

Scenario 2. You are already enrolled in the program of your dream. And then something goes wrong. Something is not entirely clear. Or you are just pushed for time.

I face situations like these all the time, both when I study myself and when I teach others. I will teach you to become a better version of yourself – to be more productive, overcome problems, and never stop learning. If you want that for yourself, of course.

Trusted feedback
Word of mouth is my best advertisement. I also work with tutoring marketplaces such as Upstudy and Profi, where students give me only 5 or 5* out of five for performance. These ratings are independently collected and are audited by the respective marketplace companies. For several years in a row I have ranked first in the list of teachers in St. Petersburg on Upstudy.
Pedagogical experience
I have been speaking English since I was 10, and I have been teaching for 12 years - on courses, at companies, and for my own projects. At university I majored in pedagogics, linguistics and physics.
Top textbooks
I use only the latest official guides, apps and textbooks from Cambridge, Oxford, ETS, Kaplan, Princeton etc. Together with my personal approach this creates a perfect marriage of mastering the subject and broadening your horizons.
A cozy office the heart of St. Petersburg, Russia, the city referred to as "Venice of the north". Fully equipped for lessons, lectures and seminars, the office delivers that utmost liberal, friendly and productive atmosphere which both children and adults adore. Our own private intellectual club.
Precise level placement
Normally I rely on a short interview, since asking the right questions and analyzing the answers properly allows me to see the bigger picture. Nevertheless, I have a big bad test for you if you prefer :)
Staying on top of things
Precise, regular training sessions are the core of my approach. Regular tests help me to measure your progress and make amendments to the program.
Technical approach
Holding a physics teacher diploma enables me to deliver better structured knowledge and prepare students for exams with quantitative/logical parts (GMAT, GRE) and mathematics/physics tests (A-level, SAT etc.)
The team
They do marketing research, create presentations, assist with term and graduation papers; they teach and consult. They hold diplomas in economics, history and literature from Cambridge or European business schools and have impeccable experience (e. g. at Big Four or international start-ups). They are my colleagues from Russia and the UK, the people I have been working with for years.
