I am a Linguist. I studied Linguistics in Russia, intricacies of British English in England and ESL teaching in Canada. I have been teaching English since 2001. I taught in Russia for 7 years, tutored students for IELTS exam, worked as translator and interpreter for different businesses and organizations, including 3 years as a TED translator.

Currently, I have been teaching LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) in Winnipeg, Manitoba – Canadian prairie province. I teach adults from all over the world; among my students were people from Israel, South Korea, India, Russia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ukraine, Nicaragua, China, Argentina, etc.

I enjoy teaching students individually one-on-one, enhancing the students’ language confidence by giving them practical help with grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, and providing feedback during each lesson.

I can promise you that Irina will not only put out 100% as a teacher, but will also motivate you to move forward in your language journey and make real progress with a unique, enthusiastic and contagious style..”
