If you want your letters and documents to be translated accurately, with the correct meaning conveyed, you should not rely on translation software. My services are provided quickly, professionally, are kept strictly confidential, and are very affordable.

My native languages are Ukrainian and Russian, so if you are planning a trip, I am ready to help you. I met a Kiwi while I was living in Ukraine, moved to NZ and got married, so I can offer first hand advice for anyone travelling to Russia, Ukraine, or coming to NZ. If you are dating someone from one of these countries, a mix of language and cultural advice will be invaluable!

Standard lesson price is $55 per hour.

I have been learning English with Tamara for 5 months. When we started our lessons I already had knowledge about grammar, but I had no idea how to use it. My speech was not fluent. I had so many difficulties speaking English. Tamara has helped me to find my own way to learn English. She found gaps in my knowledge and helped me to fill them in. She could identify my level through conversations and quickly realise what I need to improve my English skills. As a result I have fluent speech now.

What a difference experience makes!.....had many teachers, both in NZ and in Kiev, none of them compare to you Tamara, you never cancel a lesson, you're meticulously prepared, have an utter and complete command of the English language which is wonderful when explaining Russian grammar to me. Most valuable aspect of your tuition style is you know what to teach and when to introduce it!, ....you're really very good at what you do and have me believing I will one day speak good Russian, Thank you!

She's quite professional and makes an effort to make her plans for the lesson(chooses the topic to discuss etc.) rather than only following a book. Always gives a good energy for me to follow the lesson and make it as interesting as possible. I highly recommend anyone.

Tamara been an excellent Tutor, and a great person too. With her help, I rapidly improved my Russian over a 3-4 week period. She was very diligent and interested during the lessons, and was very prepared and gave useful homework to do also. Seeking her as a tutor was a very good decision!

Tamara: Thanks, Peter. It was an absolute pleasure to teach you.Have a great time in St. Petersburg!
My daughter has been learning Russian with Tamara for about a year now, and I am very happy with the progress my daughter's made so far. We had a couple of teachers before Tamara but there was no improvement. Tamara's lessons are very intellectual, enjoyable and fun. I definitely reccommend Tamara's lessons to anyone wanting to learn Russian. Thank you Tamara very much!!

Great tutor ! I wanted to learn Russian to have daily chats in russian. Tamara knew exactly what I would need and she gave me the work and lessons which suited me perfectly ! In less than 10 lessons, I was able to speak with her in Russian, having short conversations and being able to use the declinaisons. She is really nice and professionnal and it was a pleasure to work with her. She pushed me hard during the courses, and it paid off ! Thanks again ! I definitely recommend her.

Tamara is such a great help, I had been using self teach cds previously and had been struggling. But once I started with Tamara it was all so much clearer and structured. I have enjoyed my lessons very much and would definitely recommend her tuition to anyone. Thanks so much for your help.

I have been studying with Tamara for 1 1/2 years now and am overjoyed with the progress I have made. She is an incredibly gifted teacher and a wonderful person who makes learning fun. On my last trip to Russia, I was constantly asked how I learned to speak the language so well! I honestly look forward to each and every lesson.

My mum is 53 and she has been living in NZ for about 16 months now. With zero knowledge of English language, I first enrolled her into community education English courses for beginners, but mum would come back upset and frustrated over not being able to understand what the teacher were asking her to do/say or even read!!! !!! Then Tamara was recommended to us and neither I nor mum could be happier – it has only been 4 months and I see HUGE improvement in mum’s English. To be continued..

Just want to say a very big `thank you` to Tamara for the excellent English tuition my Ukranian wife is receiving. Tamara has put my wife at ease and she is making great progress. I have no hesitation in recommending Tamara for anyone wanting to learn or improve their English.

Tamara: Thanks, Bob! It is always nice to be appreciated :-). You are one of my MOST diligent students. I hope your trip will be very fruitful and your hard work will pay dividends :-).
It has now been six months that I have been taking lessons. I am incredibly pleased with the progress I have made and the enjoyment I get from my lessons. I am convinced that there is no better Russian tutor in all of New Zealand.
