- I have always wanted to become a teacher. As a child, I used to put my dolls around the room on the chairs and show them different pictures in the books. Later on I was inspired by my English teacher at the secondary school – strict but friendly, beautiful and very intelligent.

- Palīdzēt citiem - tas ir prieks un aicinājums. Aicinām pie mums - apgūt jaunu, pilnveidoties, piedalīties sarunās un grupās. Uz tikšanos!


Tatiana Tarovika

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: BA, IHCYL, IHVYL

-  I believe that a foreign language should be acquired rather than learnt, almost in the same way as we pick up our first language. I am very happy that I can pursue this idea here, at IH Riga, and give my students an opportunity to study as naturally as possible. 

Inna Zaderijeva

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: IHCYL

- I feel like it is amazing to be a part of a different language world: to be able to speak with this world, to respond to it. And this is even more precious that you can help other people to enter this world and show them wider possibilities.

Marina Jelisejeva

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: MA, CELTA, IH CYLT

- One of the things I really want they feel after the course is the feeling of confidence. I like Walt Disney’s statement “First, think. Second, believe. Third, dream. And finally, dare.” I believe our  students dare.
