About Maia

Experienced Russian Teacher - Russian native speaker

I am an enthusiastic and personable tutor specialising in languages and writing skills. I’ve been teaching for more than 12 years.
I have taught Russian language in the areas of Politics, Current Affairs and Culture, Media and Communications and Business Russian to corporate clients, on a one-to-one basis to students, to candidates for GCSE and A Level, to candidates for DPSI, to university students. I have designed a number of course programs and tailored learning materials for students. I assist students with literature essays, the reviewing and proofreading of academic essays and course-work papers.
I have developed my own teaching skills and believe both in my own effectiveness and in a student's potential to learn, and act to foster the learning they expect.
My approach to tutoring is focused on achieving the stated goals for the student.
I make goals high but attainable.
I'm a firm believer in getting the best out of all my students and believe that all my students are capable of achieving the highest grades.
I have over 15 years of extensive experience in interpreting and translation from English into Russian to corporate clients in the UK. My main areas of expertise in translation are: Legal, Economics, Finance, Engineering and Medical. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and a member of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting.
I am based in Richmond, Surrey.

Reliable and dedicated

Written by Brian L
I have been associated with Maia for a number of years and can strongly recommend her expertise and teaching methods. She is particularly good with students who have little knowledge of grammar or sentence construction. She has infinite patience. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and am a retired Russian teacher.
Excellent results.

Reference for Maia

Written by Joakim F
I studied Russian with Maia for two years and I was extremely pleased with my progress, which is down to her impressive diligence and patience.
She used a variety of methods which makes grammar, vocabulary and conversation an interesting learning experience. The lessons were tailored very carefully to match my abilities and requirements – an excellent blend of business and conversational Russian. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maia as a Russian teacher to anyone wishing to learn Russian.
