One-to-One courses

For busy people with tight schedules and for people with specific requirements we offer the option of One-to-One lessons. Our lesson programme is flexible and can be adjusted to suit your timetable. You can choose any number of hours and any day of the week, including evenings and weekends.

At the Russian Language Centre we have been working with clients on a One-to-One basis since the year 2000. We have extensive experience in this field and have taught many hundreds of students in this way.

One-to-One courses are available at all levels from Complete Beginners to Advanced. You may choose to combine your private lessons with one of our Group Courses.

We have a fabulous team of teachers who have all been hand-picked by our experienced teacher trainer. All our tutors have been personally interviewed and observed. We don't simply have a bank of teachers whose teaching standards we can't guarantee. All our tutors are fully-qualified and have many years of experience. They will make sure you both progress as quickly as possible and have  an enjoyable experience.

One-to-One tuition most commonly is held at the tutor's home. Tutors have a dedicated space for lesson provision. We can also arrange a space for lessons at a location suitable for you. We deliver lessons on-line via Skype. Tutors can travel to your office and deliver lessons to one or more students. For more information see In-Company Tuition. On rare occasions we provide One-to-One lessons at students' home. This is done only on exceptional circumstances e.g. an illness, temporary inability to go out for lessons. Please contact us to check out this option.

FREE Trial Lesson

You don't have to commit to the whole course straight away. You can book a trial lesson to see how you like it. The trial lesson is 30 min long and FREE.

The trial lesson doesn't oblige you to take up the course. Once you've had your trial lesson, you can pay for any number of hours from 5 upwards. 

Lesson length

When it comes to one-to-one lessons, it's important to choose the right length of lessons to suit your learning style. You have an option to choose either a 1.5 hours or a 2 hours session. We do not provide 1 hour lessons as this has proven to be too short for adult learning. We do, however, make an exception for kids under 16. Please, contact us for more information.


Once you sign up for a One-to-One course of lessons, we ask you to pay a deposit that is equal one full lesson’s fee. The deposit is refundable i.e. it will be returned to you at the end of the course, or you will be able to use it to pay for your last lesson.

Cancellation Policy

We have a Cancellation Policy for all of our One-to-One students. Please, see PDF document on the right hand side of the page. You will be asked to sign it prior to starting the course. 


We can also arrange tuition in pairs or groups of three. If you wish to share your lesson with a friend or a colleague, you will be charged +£10.00 per additional participant.

If you have further questions about any of our courses or activities, please, do not hesitate to contact us or request a call back. We will be happy to assist you.
