Florencia Valente

- There is nothing more rewarding than seeing students make progress throughout the year. You get to celebrate big and small accomplishments as they become more confident and competent communicators.


Jordan Yeardsley-Jones

English Language Teacher

- Hi! My name is Jordan and I'm from Liverpool, England. I'm an energetic person and football obsessed! I taught English in both the UK and Italy before coming to Latvia, where I plan to bring my passion for teaching into your classroom.

Helen Davis

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: BA, CELTA

- I enjoy having the opportunity to help students improve their confidence in communication through language. Teaching English has allowed me to visit many places and gain new experiences and perspectives; it is rewarding to be able to help students develop their own English language skills in ways that will support them in their future goals.


Nadežda Stankeviča

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: CELTA

- I found the CELTA course to be extremely valuable in that it provided me with the knowledge, confidence, and practical experience needed to begin developing my own skills as an English teacher. The course is focused on promoting communication among students.

Melanie Lindsey

Qualifications: BA, Trinity Cert TESOL

- I've wanted to teach English since I was 13 years old and I made the right decision! I love interacting with students and helping people to achieve their language goals (I also really like chanterelle mushrooms).

Tian Tian Wedgwood Young

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: BA, CELTA

- My aim in the classroom is to create a learning environment where my students feel supported and encouraged. I have recently moved to Riga from Shanghai, China. In my spare time I like to read, learn new languages and I’ve recently taken up learning the guitar.

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.


Margarita Ulitska

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: IHCC

- Working at IH Riga-Satva is big responsibility and pleasure for me. I am the happiest professional: I love my job and my students and, I hope, my students love me too.

Viktorija Chesnovicka

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: BA, MA, CELTA

- 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 secondary school. She was strict but friendly, beautiful and very intelligent. Since then I have decided to become an English teacher too.


Irina Piskorska

English Language Teacher

Qualifications: IHCC

- "Inspired students" learn much faster, that is why I do my best to create the most enjoyable learning atmosphere for students.

Linda Bidiņa

Latviešu valodas pasniedzēja

- 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.
