What is Russian Maths?

Parents often ask me what “Russian Maths” is and how is it different from maths taught in England, after all, the numbers are the same. Yes, the numbers are the same, but the methods of teaching mathematics are very different.

What People Say about Oksana's tutoring

May 13, 2015

“Dear Dr Kiseleva

Nicolas performed very well in our entry criteria, particularly in his Maths tests both on his assessment day and his entrance exam. It would appear to me that the work you have done with him has had a very large impact. You will have noticed from our Part B Arithmetic that we aim to draw boys into more open-ended problems where they must pursue a concept through a series of steps. Nicolas was extremely good at that and scored within the top 20% of the year group on that paper. It must also be said that the paper was harder than usual, so his achievement is even greater. His work with triangular numbers on the assessment day was similarly pleasing.

I am afraid to say that we don’t give actual scores out to parents, but I enjoyed his company when I met him in November and again in January. He had a lovely sensitivity to others, led by example and mixed well.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Best Wishes
Michael Strother, Director of Admissions

    Many thanks for your invaluable help with Maths for the past 12 months which has help Marcos not only to progress to the level he should be in, but to understand and enjoy what he is doing. This is how Maths should be taught in schools. I cannot recommend you enough!
    Regards, Natalia

    Thank you Oksana, Megan is coming on leaps and bounds in maths, starting from basics she has developed an in depth understanding, a solid foundation on which to build. Long may it continue!
    Regards Sue.


    My ten years old daughter attends a state primary school and excelled at maths but was not being stretched beyond the curriculum. Hence we decided to send her to Oksana who has worked with her over 3 months to show her new ways at looking at maths problems, as well as introducing her to more advanced maths including algebra. She has equipped her with new methods in problem solving and challenged her beyond what her primary school could offer. As a result her maths skills are now excellent. Her one hour a week tutoring also prepared my daughter for passing the Entrance exam for Withington Girls School. Our decision to try her for WGS came late in the day – just 3 weeks before the exam but Oksana’s tuition certainly gave our daughter a head start in handling the challenging papers. Whether your child is struggling with maths or accomplished I recommend Oksana as a tutor -and especially if you are considering tuition for entrance exams and 11 plus. Since accepting her place at WGS, our daughter continues to see Oksana on a weekly basis as she enjoys her lessons so much and loves improving her maths skills. Thanks Oksana!

    We wanted to thank you for your amazing work with our daughter – the numbers are finally beginning to make sense to her and the work you are doing together is having a really tangible impact in terms of her wellbeing and confidence.

    My son was struggling in maths at school and so we decided to ask Oksana for an assessment and tutoring. He has been going for to Oksana for a year now and has really advanced. He is confident and enjoys maths which is so lovely to see.
    Thank you Oksana

  • Helen

    My son attended a local primary school school and had always coped well with maths but was not particularly challenged, Oksanas methods provided a new way of approaching maths and it’s concepts,focusing on methods of problem solving, he really enjoyed the lessons. We visited weekly for three months before he sat entrance exams for several independent schools and is looking forward to starting at The Manchester Grammar School in September. We continued to see Oksana over the following months to build on what he had learnt and prepare him for secondary school. I cannot thank or recommend Oksana highly enough. Thank you
