Ian Parr – EFL teacher, Istra School, 2014-2016:
“I have had a fantastic two years working at Istra School. The classes are small with a nice variety of ages and levels. The classroom facilities and course books are both first rate. There is a spacious staff room with an extensive library of resources to supplement and create communicative lessons.
The school director and local teachers have always been wonderfully friendly and helpful to me. Istra itself is a small town, but it has everything you need to live happily with Moscow just a short one hour train journey away.
I would recommend Istra School to both new and experienced teachers.”
Jonathon Giel – EFL teacher, Istra School, 2015-2016:
“I came to Istra as kind of an experiment, after having taught English for many years, primarily in Spain and Italy. Having never even been to Russia on holiday before, this was a bit of a gamble. Fortunately, the gamble paid off. Everyone in the school is extremely welcoming, from the Director and staff to the students. Arriving in Istra with no Russian language skills whatsoever, I certainly appreciated the endless support I received from my colleagues and the owner herself when it came to everyday practicalities such as banking and visa support.
Although fairly small and quiet, Istra does have plenty of supermarkets and a reasonable selection of bars and restaurants. It is also just a very cheap, one-hour train ride from the centre of Moscow, for those seeking a little more action. The inclusive accommodation with all bills paid is a 20 minute walk from the school, so there are no transport costs to worry about. Just remember to pack a good pair of winter boots, a warm coat, hat and gloves and you’ll be fine. Buildings themselves are generally much warmer than in the UK in winter, so you will soon get used to it.
All in all, this is a safe introduction to teaching in Russia, suitable for new and experienced teachers alike.”
