One to one tutoring will provide the best learning experience.


Marina Fountain is an extraordinary and extremely dedicated teacher. I have studied Russian Language with her for two years, every lesson has been packed full of fun and intense learning. Despite Russian being a very different and difficult language Marina has put an immense amount of effort into thoroughly making sure i understood every topic that we were learning, whether it be language, grammar or culture. Furthermore she was amazing in making me feel so confident and prepared for both my written and oral exams in Russian. I have been fortunate to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg and have felt confidant enough to navigate both cities using the language skills she had taught me.

Marina genuinely goes above and beyond for her students and it is because of this dedication that I have passed Russian A-level with a Grade A and am now off to study Russian Language at Queen Mary university of London. I cannot speak highly enough of her teaching abilities!


Marina Fountain.

I am a native Russian speaker and tutor with over 25 years of experience in Russian teaching in England, Latvia and Russia. Currently based in Bromley, and equipped to provide both online and in-person 1:1 assistance, I offer a flexible, passionate and individualised service designed to ensure every student achieves their maximum potential.

I have an outstanding track record across GCSE and A-level curriculums, with every one of my students achieving A* or A grades in the past year and all 8 of my GCSE students achieving an A* grade in 2018. I am equally well-equipped to offer both primary and degree-level support, with past students including children as young as 7 years old alongside a Russian Language student at Cambridge University, whom I helped to achieve a First-Class Honours degree. Beyond academic support, I have also taught hobbyist Russsian learners, given private lessons at the prestigious Clifford Chance law firm and worked alongside the Mayor of London to run a course in Russian Cultural Awareness.

Regardless of age and ability, I provide every student with tailored support through interest-led teaching alongside detailed progress and goal monitoring. I take great care to cultivate independent learning skills in order to build individuals’ confidence, whilst also ensuring that students feel thoroughly supported at every step along the way.

There are those essential words that every person needs when travelling overseas, like ‘hello’ or ‘how much’ or the first-hand question phrases. Moreover, students usually underestimate the importance of knowing the numbers, thus the way prices or time sounds.
