Ahmet is a good teacher who explains the materials very well. He explains it easily and if you need the Russian translations, it wouldn't be a problem for Ahmet.
My lessons are interesting because I practice Grammar, Speaking, Listening and Writing skills. Since the lessons are always different, I do not have the time to get bored or distracted. Our lessons go so fast that I wonder "Ноw come!? Did I waste my time in vain?"
My skills get better with each lesson, and I dont even notice how. But I know that nothing is better than having lessons with a native speaker. I had a lot of lessons with Ukrainian teachers, but nobody was able to give me as much pleasure while learning English as Ahmet.
You don`t need to worry about your level, because even if you are a beginner, Ahmet will be able to help you since he has a good command of Russian language to explain materials.

"Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher."
