About me

In my lessons, I will provide you with all the materials you need, which I will adapt to suit your aims, interests, and preferred learning style. I will set challenging tasks and gladly answer any questions you may have. As you progress, I will continuously develop the course to help you achieve your immediate and long-term language goals.

As a learner of Russian, much of my most effective language learning has taken place outside of my Russian lessons. This is why, as your English teacher, I will also be happy for you to communicate with me and ask questions between lessons. If you take an interest in your studies, I am always ready to reward you for this.

I believe that fluency in a language can only be achieved through familiarity with the cultural context in which it is used. For this reason, I will encourage you to immerse yourself in British culture, and I will provide a variety of personalised recommendations to help you achieve this.

I look forward to meeting you online!

I’ve learnt a lot from Adam S., including presentation skills, small talk skills, grammar, idioms and so on. He is an excellent teacher who is always patient in teaching and talking to me. We often discuss diverse topics and news during our lessons, such as habits and how UK people reacted to the change of the throne. Therefore, if anyone wants to learn English, I will recommend Adam to them. Also, Adam, thank you as always!

As Adam is an intelligent and careful teacher, learning the language has become a very interesting and exciting process for me. I still have to work hard on improving my grammar and increasing my vocabulary, but I can boldly move forward and I am very grateful to my tutor for that.

I learned English before, but it always happened in big groups and there was no opportunity for me there to focus on my personal mistakes. So it's been ​my first experience of working with a language teacher one on one online. I'm very glad that I've found Adam. He is a very patient and supportive teacher. I'm very grateful to him for helping me with improving my grammar and pronunciation. My fear of conversation is almost gone.
