I really enjoyed my lessons with Lily at Top Way Language School! Both, the school and the teacher were very accomodating and flexible and supported me not only on a professional but also on a personal level!

I have learnt a lot in a short time and hope to continue in the future.

Thank you very much for all involved!

My name is Andrey. I’m a cardiologist and heart surgeon. Nowadays, it’s not possible to work in the field of modern medicine without knowing English. I learnt French at school and at university, and not knowing English thus became an issue. I’ve learnt English with Olga Bobkova with my spouse since 2012. I want to underline that until then I had tried to study in various schools, with different teachers and this never worked out even though, at that time, we’d spend more time studying English. With Olga, we started from scratch using a personalized approach and, today, reached the level “Upper Intermediate”. Did that take too long? I don’t consider so because of my business trips, vacations and my frequent cancellations due to work. We discussed this from the very first lesson, and we learn not to get a diploma but for the knowledge itself. The professionalism of Olga is hard to convey in just a word, so we’ll stick with “professional” in her work. Olga makes it very simple to learn, speak and understand the language and this is the most important quality a teacher can have. Thank you, Olga, for your efforts.

I would like to express my gratitude to Bobkova Olga who provided me with excellent background for passing the IELTS exam. My English teacher was never late for classes, always ready to answer all my questions and correct my mistakes. I am convinced that without rewriting essays for several times after Olga’s corrections my overall band score wouldn’t have been 7.0. To conclude, I am sure that if someone wants to succeed in studying a foreign language, he or she should contact “Top Way” immediately, as from my own experience I can state that the team of this language center is a team of professionals who care about their students’ results.

I wanted to pass TOEFL in order to be admitted to International Master of Business Administration Program in International Institute of Business (Ukraine) – University of New Brunswick (Canada). My first attempt to pass the TOEFL exam was not successful as my result was 71 grades (the requirement grade for an MBA program was 92). So I started to prepare for the TOEFL exam with Olga Bobkova and I got 92 grades(exactly what I needed!) in February 2014. Obviously, Olga’s contribution to my studying was incredible! Firstly, Olga has a strong winning attitude to students. She can make them do something, what they, otherwise, would not do. For instance, she encouraged me to be always prepared for classes. Secondly, Olga is very experienced in TOEFL and IELTS tests preparation. We had a lot of practice which helped me feel confident in the exam. Consequently, I strongly recommend Olga to everybody, who wants to pass the TOEFL exam.

Generally, the Test of English as a foreign language (TOEFL) is a very important step for anyone, who decides to continue his studying abroad, e.g. universities of the US or Europe. On my way to my application to the University of South Carolina (USA) I had to take the ToEFL(iBT) test and the GRE test (Graduate Record Examination). I came to realization that my English skills were insufficient to perform well on these tests, also given a poor coverage of foreign languages in the university classes in Kyiv. Thus, I decided that my best option was to find an experienced English tutor, who would be able to train me specifically for the language tests of the graduate level. Luckily, Olga from the language center “Top Way” was recommended to me by a friend. During our first classes I noted her outstanding knowledge of English grammar, her approachability and kindness that overall highlighted her professionalism as a teacher. Olga quickly determined my language weaknesses and we immediately started working on improving my skills. It took me nearly 3 months to grasp the writing and speaking sections of the TOEFL test. As a result, I passed the test with a score of 100 (R27-L21-S25-W27) and successfully applied to the University of South Carolina.
