Hello! My name is Olia and I'm a native Russian speaker with five years of experience in teaching Russian for foreigners 🙂 I studied at the Faculty of Education (Charles University, Prague) for five years and my specializations were English and arts.

I’m here to help you achieve your Russian goals and enjoy the process at the same time!
