We love Arina! My kids are 11 & 12 years old and they look forward to their weekly Russian tutoring session. They have learned so much from Arina in the past 2 years. She is a dynamic and always well prepared tutor. She develops a wide variety of ways for the kids to learn. We hope to continue with Arina until the kids go into college. I highly recommend Arina for children or adults!
