When I started my lessons with Sofiya, my goal was to revise and consolidate the basic knowledge and to improve my skills, so that at least I could watch TV shows and movies in the original. Sofiya turned out to be an absolutely suitable tutor for me.

For lessons, she has in her arsenal a vast variety of educational materials from old academic ones to modern resources such as magazines, TED videos, or educational sites. We touched all aspects of English not only through traditional learning grammar or vocabulary but also by playing games that made learning more interesting and fun. We talked about modern topics, and, importantly, about modern English with its variety of idioms, phrases, and nuances.

With complete confidence, I can say that my language skill has improved significantly over the year of our partnership. I feel confident when I'm talking about something or watching movies. Sofiya is also an amazing person with a good sense of humour, communication skills, and imagination. I would recommend Sofiya as a tutor for any goal, whether it's learning English from scratch or preparing to move abroad.

My initial goal was language proficiency improvement to communicate freely on general topics with English speakers.

We established the connection from the very beginning. I believe it is crucial for efficient and fulfilling learning. Sofiya can teach you real (not a bookish one) English, and you will not sound cringe:)

Studying with Sofiya is a goal-oriented and systematic process - two features that I appreciate in life and English learning in particular. Sofiya sticks to a flexible and individual approach to teaching. She identifies the most efficient teaching approach for every student that fits their needs and personal qualities. Sofiya is open to students' suggestions and implements them so that they fit the whole studying process. She chooses gripping and trending topics to discuss in the lessons.

Thanks to our lessons I achieved progress and have gained the level of language proficiency so I can almost freely discuss general and professional topics. I could significantly improve my grammar so that the gap in this aspect of language became smaller. I have also enlarged my vocabulary, and now I can understand native English speakers and express my thoughts clearly and accurately.

At the moment, I am satisfied with my progress in studying and have an intention to continue.

When I signed up for classes with Sofiya, I wanted to improve my understanding of natural English speech and polish my grammar.

I find Sofiya's teaching approach suitable for me. She designs classes in a way that we don't waste our time on all topics, but focus on those where I have gaps. Besides, It's convenient that she can change the lesson time from time to time. I like that Sofiya uses modern and relevant materials for study, for example, real videos from YouTube or up-to-date articles from popular news agencies.

Now my English speech sounds more natural.
I can recognize and understand more phrases from songs and films. I also improved my grammar and speech accuracy.

I guess Sofiya is a universal soldier :-) Each person can find their reasons and benefits. But for me, it was qualified support to continue learning English from the pre-intermediate to a more advanced level.

Since school, I've never thought about improving my English. I was one of the best students in university English classes: I could watch videos in English on YouTube, understand movies and series, read tech articles and write understandable comments to my code. My English seemed to be great until I decided to search for job opportunities in Europe.

I created a typical CV (I thought it was cool and everybody would want to hire me. I was so naive😊 and started to apply for jobs. With that first version of the CV, all companies I contacted didn't even invite me to the first stage of the interview. I was upset but didn't give up. I thought, "Am I doing something wrong?" And a while after, I found the cue in Sofiya's classes.

After several lessons, I realized that I actually CAN discuss not only weather in English, and my confidence about taking part in interviews was rocketing. Then Sofiya helped me polish my CV, so companies started inviting me to interviews. During our classes, I've also nailed some grammar topics I had difficulties with. And what about vocabulary? Sofiya created a lot of thematic sets for me, which we had been using in our classes.
Going to Sofiya's classes, be ready to work with super-structured materials, exciting videos (TedTalks included), articles and exercises that will help you improve your English and learn a lot of handy and interesting facts. And wait for a second! Sofiya will create a road map to any goal you can imagine!

If you work in IT, you are lucky to stumble upon Sofiya's lessons because you will be on the same page with your teacher. Sofiya gave me a lot of tips.

Three years ago I started studying Spanish. And after a couple of years, I realized that I was losing my English. I had little practice and every time I was trying to recollect some English words, the first ones that came into my mind were Spanish. And then I discovered that an old friend of mine was a cool English teacher and she worked online.

So that is how we started. And for now, we have been working with Sonia for nearly one year and I do really feel the result. I feel much more comfortable speaking English and I love our classes. Sonia is a genius in finding captivating topics for the classes, she is very educated and has a great sense of humour. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

My aim was to maintain the level of spoken language to avoid difficulties in understanding foreign colleagues. Throughout the lessons, there was an ease of communication, and the lessons materials were fascinating and relevant to my goal. I think that the main punch line is Sofiya's teaching methods which are always focused on a learner and interactive.

Now I can calmly communicate with colleagues not only at work. I can also maintain small talk on a wide range of topics:)
