Russian and Finnish small group tuition

​The group classes are held at our comfortable facilities at Jätkäsaari, Helsinki. There are 3 to 6 people in a group which allows a student more qualitative time during a lesson compared to studying in larger groups. The students' current proficiency level, personal interests and study goals are first priority in achieving ultimate objectives.

Tatiana Batanina

I am an experienced language instructor with a clear focus on teaching adults.

Besides working in Finland I have worked as a language educator in Russia and Hungary. I am the board member of Russian Teachers Association in Finland and I have also co-authored Ponjatno! textbook series for Finnish high schools.

I speak Russian as my first language and I am also fluent in English, Finnish and Swedish.



“Tatiana is an excellent Russian tutor. Having learned languages for years Tatiana's approach to encouraging her students to listen to, speak and write in Russian from day one is second-to-none! Tatiana quickly grasped my Russian level and built on it using vocabulary I was familiar with, strengthening what I'd learnt in the process. A very strong recommendation!.”
