Hello to my potential students:)
I can have online Russian lessons by Skype or in person with you. My name is Oxana. I am a native speaker of Russian, currently living in Manchester (in the UK), university educated with years of teaching experience of Russian and English as a foreign language. I can help you to choose an appropriate individual educational program, and the quantity of hours per week. As for duration, I would recommend one hour and a half lesson twice a week. As for the way of teaching, I use the communicative method. The main focus is on using the language. You start speaking Russian from the very first lesson. Russian grammar will be introduced to you in a clear structured format - you will see that there is an understandable logic. You will not be overloaded with grammar tasks and will learn only as much grammar as you need in order to speak and understand Russian. We could meet up in Skype and have the initial interview just to discuss all the questions that you may have. We can do it today or any other day that is suitable to you. The study material will be provided for free via Dropbox. The lessons are very engaging ( there will be lots of interesting and interactive games and activities such as guessing games, miming games, dice games, role plays, case studies, tongue twisters and etc) I am looking forward to hearing from you. If you have other questions, feel free to ask me.
I am passionate about teaching. I hold 7 years of experience General and Business Russian, Russian for kids, primary, secondary, GCSE, A level and adult learning.
Here are just a few references by my students:

Oxana is the best !
I was struggling in my GCSE Russian so I looked for a tutor. Luckily I found Oxana who was very helpful and has greatly improved my ability to speak and understand Russian. In my mock oral I received a scores of 24/50. I then took lessons with Oxana and my score improved to 48/50 which is double ! I would definitely recommend!
My results vastly improved from a 24/50 in my mocks to 48/50 in my real GCSEs

Receive tutoring to help master the Russian language
I am a college student, struggling through my Russian language major. I discovered Oxana online, through language sites. I emailed her right away. She was flexible with her time, even with our 7 hour time difference. She interviewed me over skype, to see my level of knowledge. Then, she created lessons that challenged me but also were to the level of my knowledge. From there, my knowledge of Russian language began to improve.
I have improved in my Russian.

I have been learning Russian with Oxana for the last 18 months having no prior knowledge of the language. I can now read and write using the Cyrillic alphabet and have a good understanding of grammar and vocabulary which pays tribute to Oxana's patience and ability to explain things clearly. Oxana is well organised, capable and extremely professional with her approach to teaching. Oxana provides varied and creative methods of teaching which helps the student to be more relaxed, attentive and above all, enjoy the lesson.
Although I consider myself to be a beginner/intermediate, it is obvious to me that Oxana's ability to teach the Russian language will extend to any level.
Read, write and converse in Russian language.

Fantastic Russian Language Teacher
Oxana is a fluent native speaker and has high level qualifications in teaching Russian language. Lessons are highly engaging, informative and conducive to learning, pitched at correct level to progress. She puts a lot of effort into her lessons and her teaching methodology is very efficient at getting you practicing and using what you're learning, while you're learning it.
Dedicated and fun Russian teacher
Written by Irene Van Der Byl K
Oxana has been a patient and dedicated Russian teacher to me. She tailors our lessons to my interests and the topics that I need to work on, such as business Russian. She is always well prepared for our lessons, with a varied range of tasks from different text books and sources, even music. The lessons are a good balance of grammar, conversation and reading. Oxana chooses fun topics for lessons too – often with focus on interesting Russian traditions. She has many suggestions on films and ways to work on Russian outside our classes. Finally Oxana is very committed – helping out with work-related Russian language queries outside class time if. Thank you Oxana!
Increased confidence in spoken Russian (to go to Russia on business) and vocab in new areas. Confusion with some grammar topics cleared up.

Oxana has taught my daughters for the past year and their progression has been remarkable. Every lesson has been tailored to meet their requirements and delivered in a fun, interesting and structured way. Oxana’s approach has kept my children engaged and focused whilst making their lessons very enjoyable.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Oxana as a tutor
Reference for Oxana Novikova
Written by Artemiy B
I am happy to write a reference for Oxana Novikova, the tutor for Russian language.
Oxana was tutoring my son for Russian GCSE for 2 years by skype and he got grade 9 this year (2019). My son recently commented that without training with Oxana he would not achieve this result and he is very happy for that. During these two years of tutoring he always was happy with the lessons, he enjoyed them. As a parent I can say that I was very happy with Oxana’s tutoring. She organised the lessons in an interesting and demanding way and found the methods to communicate with my teenage son so that he was always responsible for his studies. Oxana prepared a lot of homework and reading material for the lessons and all the homework should be done and send back to Oxana prior the next lesson to discuss - and that was my son's responsibility. As a result, my son not only passed his GCSE well, but also improved his vocabulary and use the language more correct.
Oxana is flexible (when we need to go somewhere, we never had a problem in rescheduling a lesson or change the lesson duration), friendly person and experienced teacher. I definitely recommend her.
GCSE grade 9
Fantastic tutor - highly recommend
Written by Steven A
Over one year Iv had oksana has my tutor. Prior to my visit I had no knowledge of the Russian alphabet or system behind the Russian language.. But oksana was a fantastic teacher , very calm and made me feel at ease . She always helped if I needed help during home tasks responding to my messages instantly. She seemed more happier than me when I was progressing which showed her dedication to seeing her students succeed. I’m happy with my progress and it was an interesting journey during my tuition. She always mixed up lessons to make it fun and enjoyable and when needed she could make it more serious. If you decided to choose oksana you won’t be disappointed.
Excellent, Reading , speaking and listening the language is a lot more clear. Obviously I’m not fluent but I’ve built a foundation.
