How many hours of tuition can I expect each day?


Students benefit from four hours of tuition per week, during these classes, students will practise all four language skills: listening, reading and writing and speaking - along with elements of culture and history.




Who will my teacher be?


Here at Znaniye we are passionate about ensuring students are taught by tutors that completely understand their needs, learning style, and level of Russian. In order to gauge this information and match students and teachers successfully, students are assessed on their trial/first day. After reviewing this, we will be able to start assigning students their teacher. Znaniye understands each individual’s needs and caters tuition and support around this.




What should students expect from their first class?


Students are integrated into the class from Day 1. Our teachers work to ensure that the students are able to participate, are encouraged to ask questions and get stuck in.




Are students grouped based on their level of knowledge?


Znaniye classes are grouped by both age, and ability. Most students will join the group matched to their age, but if they are at a higher or lower level than the group, will be moved accordingly.




What kind of workload should students expect?


Alongside classwork, teachers will set additional work for students to complete in order to reinforce grammar or vocabulary learning. The workload is dependent on the student’s age and class type; those enrolled on our GCSE or A-Level courses can expect a fairly intensive workload to ensure students have as much material as possible to achieve their very best.




Will my child be accessing outdoor spaces at Znaniye?


Yes! All of our locations have an outdoor space and we hold lessons outdoor each week, for each age group. There is also space for children to play, and they take a break outside at lunch.




Are there opportunities for my child to go on trips with Znaniye?


Yes! Our students over the age of 16 have the opportunity to be selected for the Privet Russia trip run annually - an exciting and culturally immersive trip to Moscow.




What is the child to teacher ratio?


Each group class is capped at 10 students, meaning each and every student has the opportunity to receive maximum support and attention from the teacher. Znaniye also offers 1-to-1 teaching, allowing each lesson to be completely tailored to the student’s needs and goals.




How long do terms last?


We have 40 weeks per year, with between 14-13 weeks per term. For more information, click here.




Are students taught by native Russian speakers?


All teachers at Znaniye are native Russian speakers or bilingual (English and Russian speakers), allowing students to develop a natural accent whilst giving them a unique insight into Russian culture.




How does online tutoring work?


Znaniye's online school has designed its own online portal in order to allow students to learn online with ease. In order to be placed with students at a similar level, applicants will be invited to a personal consultation before attending a trial lesson. Upon completion, students will be placed in small groups with a teacher best suited to their needs.




What does my child need to bring to class at Znaniye?


A lunch box, pencil case and the appropriate textbooks. More guidance on the necessary textbooks will be given when children are enrolled in their course.




Apart from academic tutoring, what other kinds of support do you offer?


Znaniye prides itself on offering not just academic support to students but also caring for their mental health and wellbeing. Our charity Znaniye Foundation is partnered with organisations such as Mind and Mosaic LGBT+ young persons’ trust, through these partnerships we have been able to provide emotional support to anyone facing any kind of struggle, from asylum seekers to young people seeking guidance or assurance. We thoroughly understand the necessity of available support and encourage all students to come forward and ask for help if they are in any kind of difficulty. Should a student find themselves in need of extra academic support, our teachers are more than happy to answer any questions - never be afraid to ask!
