My name is Irina and I am a free-lance teacher from Switzerland. My family is of Czech and Russian origine, but I grew up in the French speaking Geneva region, studied in Bern and Prague and finally graduated from Lausanne university. I currently live and teach in Prague, Czech Republic. I love languages and I apart from those I teach I also speak Finnish, Portuguese, Arabic and a bit of Chinese. I also love nature, hiking, arts and classical music, and I play harpsichord.

Deuxième cours avec Mme Irina Simon, et j'ai adoré! Elle a de belles anecdotes, histoires et informations sur la Russie. En plus nous travaillons avec un support que j'aime et nous pratiquons le vocabulaire, la grammaire et les prononciations.

I've booked many teachers on italki for various languages. Irina is one of only two that I regret booking. She's not terrible, but she's not worth the high cost. There's some excellent teachers that undercharge. She is the reverse. She did provide some materials, which is something that many teachers don't do, but unfortunately, it's a textbook that I already had, so there was no gain there.

Had my very first Trial Lesson with Irina and she helped me so much and was very patient. I will take more lessons with her in the future!

I had my first lesson with Irina and it was also my first italki lesson! Irina is great. She was very patient with me and was a good conversationalist which pushed me to speak more which is exactly what I was looking for :)
