Our instructors

When was the last time that you thought about the credentials of your language instructors? This is a serious problem in Moscow, with many language providers using instructors who do not have so much as a baccalaureate degree, let alone a higher education. GSS takes care of that problem for you by employing as instructors only highly educated individuals whose background is in language and/or linguistics and who have experience in their fields. As a result, our instructors are not only dynamic, energetic, personable, self-assured, reliable, knowledgeable and patient, but they are also highly educated, experienced professionals who knows how best to share their knowledge with you. It is precisely these high qualifications that distinguish our teachers from those of other language schools. The Great Studying Studios understands that the success of language instruction depends to a large extent on the course instructor, and we are committed to providing our clients with the finest instructors and education available.
