General & Exam English, main focus on speaking and vocabulary

Hi! My name is Irin and I am here to help you make your English even better.

My Cambridge qualifications, experience and an extended and varied library of material and resources are all here to improve your English and help you reach a new level of understanding and using this tricky language.

Together, we won't just learn to speak and write - we will learn to express our thoughts and emotions in a way that suits your personality. We won't just read and listen - we will learn more about the world around us and the topics that you find exciting.

Speaking of topics, I love textbooks and exercises, but sometimes they can be just so irrelevant. What I will do for you is find and create a unique combination of tasks to help you progress in areas that you need or want the most.

I specialize in teaching speaking and vocabulary, so you will get plenty of those; and together we will decide on the texts you would want to read, write and listen to. Don't worry - I haven't forgotten about grammar, and, hopefully, I will show you a new, different approach to understanding it. You won't spend hours upon hours doing exercises or memorizing the rules, but what you will do is put new grammar in practice right away, notice it around you and use it to help you say what you want to say in the best possible way.

So, now that you know quite a bit about me - I can't wait to learn more about you!
I hope to see you soon,
