Information about Maroulla

I have extensive experience teaching English and English Literature to GCSE level. I have a reputation for outstanding teaching and consequently a high pass rate for my students.
I enjoy working with students and find tutoring rewarding.

‘I just want to thank you again for tutoring me this past year because without you support and guidance, I would never have been able to do as well as I did. So a massive THANK YOU once again.’
M.L Y11 student June 2016

‘I would just like to thank you for your time with****. You have improved his confidence and your encouragement to him has been invaluable. Your teaching method has enabled him to question and challenge himself on the questions and I am hopeful that he can overcome his fears to gain that much needed pass mark.’
Parent June 2016

"Thanks to Maroulla my 18 year old son has finally passed his GCSE English November(2015) retake. We could not have done this without her and feel privileged to have met her. Anyone would be lucky to have her as tutor and we would give her more than five stars if it were available. Thanks again Maroulla you get an A********** from us."

`Maroulla`s detailed knowledge of the set books for GCSE have been invaluable in helping my daughter gain a greater understanding of the texts and her calm,reassuring manner has really helped increase confidence. Reliability, professionalism and trustworthiness cannot be questioned.` Testimonial from A.D., Herts.

`I have known Maroulla for five years. She is one of the most inspiring teachers I have come across in my thirty five years of teaching...`
Monica, Head teacher.

`Maroulla tutored me for GCSE English Language and Literature.She was an excellent tutor with a very friendly personality. The things that we covered really helped me and came up in my exams. She made the session interesting and I would recommend her.`
Testimonial from Pa-Reis, student.

`Maroulla worked with my son helping him direct his studies and fill in the gaps of his knowledge. She discussed concepts to give him a more well rounded understanding of the subject and helped him structure his answers for a GCSE exam. Maroulla is a very dedicated and supportive tutor and I would highly recommend her.` Tracy

`Maroulla is currently tutoring my 9 year old son for KS2 English. She is a very experienced and knowledgeable tutor who takes up my boy`s opinion on what to work on, not just her own. She frequently checks if he is following her explanations so he always learns something new every lesson! Ever since Maroulla has started tutoring him, the changes have been significant.` L.L parent

Maroulla is an excellent tutor. She has an encouraging and supportive approach that puts our son at ease. This technique is increasing our son`s confidence and is bringing the best out in him for this subject. Maroulla is well prepared, highly experienced and knowledgeable.

My daughter had a number of sessions with Maroulla to help with her GCSE preparation in English language and literature in the lead up to her exams. Maroulla was extremely helpful, very organised and proactive and really helped my daughter to focus on what was needed. I would strongly recommend her to others.

My sons working grade at school before having Maroulla was a grade 3. In his recent mock exam he achieved a grade 6 with Maroullas help. My son was very pleased with himself , this has given him confidence again and an understanding of what is expected in an exam paper.

Vivienne (Mrs)

We can not express how pleased we are, with the great positive difference, Maroulla has made to our daughter, since her first lesson this June 2017. We were extremely concerned with our daughter`s performance in English. We were even more concerned when we went online to look for private tuition, as all tutors promised excellence, hence it was even harder trying to find the right tutor for our daughter. In the end, we decided to go for Maroulla because of the outstanding reviews on her profile, and we have never regretted our choice! Maroulla has been great, she is a very professional tutor, extremely knowledgeable, has an excellent attitude, insightful, thoughtful and very supportive. She is punctual, well prepared and well planned for lessons, well informed, patient and has this great gentle approach to teaching while being effective. Our daughter is now enthusiastic about English, which she USED to find extremely difficult, thanks to Maroulla. She states the way Maroulla explains is easy to understand, interesting and she looks forward to the lessons. Our daughter`s confidence is also improving, as previously she would be extremely hesitant to say her views/ answer questions just in case it would be the wrong answer but with Maroulla`s prompting and encouragement she appears to be coming out of that "none confidence shell" which is so pleasing and reassuring to see. Maroulla knows how worried I was when we started because of our daughter`s low English grades then and the thought of her GCSE results next year 2018, worried us even more. However, we are now so hopeful, thanks to Maroulla`s support. We appreciate Maroulla`s outstanding teaching and being passionate about ensuring her students always achieve the very highest grade possible. Would highly recommend Maroulla to anyone, we can not thank her enough.

Tutors Response :

Dear Vivienne,
Thank you so much for this feedback. It is such a pleasure to see your daughter beginning to understand and enjoy literature. She is hard-working and wants to do well and I, too, enjoy our lessons.

Joe (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Really pleased with the tutoring that my son received from Maroulla which was for his last year of English Language and Literature GCSE. The sessions were well planned and went at a pace that suited my son. His confidence in the subjects greatly improved. He started off as a grade 3 or 4 but ended up getting level 6 GCSE in both. In fact one paper is to be remarked as he is 1 mark off a level 7. This exceeded our expectations. We can`t thank Maroulla enough.

Tutors Response :

I want to thank you for the feedback and say how delighted I was with Joe`s results. I wish him every success in the 6th Form.

Tim (Mr)

We hired Maroulla to help my step-son with his English given it`s not his native tongue and the GCSE work is getting harder now with poetry and Shakespeare. Over the last 6 months Maroulla has helped Antonio improve his written and spoken English significantly which resulted in a 2-notch upgrade in his summer term exam results. Maroulla is always punctual and pleasant and we look forward to her helping him again this year.

I cannot express how pleased I am with the difference Maroulla has made to my Son in just a few weeks. His confidence has grown so much and this was clearly evident in a recent exam he took going from a U grade in October to a C very close to obtaining a B in January. Thank you very much Maroulla from us both.

Dear Mandy,

A big thank-you Maroulla - my daughter was predicted two grade D`s in her English GCSE`s and after 1 year of tutoring with Maroulla I can proudly say she passed both with an A* and a B. My daughter is over the moon with these two grades and we would highly recommend anyone considering Maroulla as a tutor - she`s brilliant...! Thanks again, worth every penny.

My son has just completed his GCSEs and under the guidance of the wonderful teacher, Maroulla, was able to obtain 2 A*s in his two English GCSEs. This couldn`t have been done with out Maroulla`s help and support. I would personally like to thank you again for all that you have done for my son. Highly recommended tutor!!! :)

Maria (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

We were originally looking for a tutor to support our daughter who was struggling in reading and spelling. She hadn`t done too well on her English SATS and although her primary school was doing their best, we felt she needed one to one sessions. We choose Maroulla because of her extensive experience and the great feedback and she has not disappointed. From day one Maroulla was a big hit with our daughter who continues to be excited every week to see her. Maroulla has worked wonders and as such our daughter has gone up a read level after only 4 weeks with her. Her confidence has also increased and this has been evident in her increased achievement and positive feedback from school. Maroulla has a lovely way about her and uses techniques which really work.
We would highly recommend Maroulla for anyone looking for a tutor for their child. You will not be disappointed.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much Maria for the lovely feedback. I also look forward to working with your daughter every week. She is charming and wonderful to chat with. I am, of course, delighted she is making such good progress.

My Son instantly got on with Maroulla and felt at ease. Although it has only been a short time I feel my Son has already gained more confidence in himself. Maroulla is well organised and is very accommodating. Further Maroulla always responds quickly to emails and messages sent.

Tutors Response :

Dear Sarah,
Thank you so much for the feedback. Jack is a pleasure to work with. He is responsive to suggestions about how to improve his work and he is much more capable than he thinks.

Maroulla is currently helping my 18 year old son retake his English GCSE. Considering he is quite shy and awkward Maroulla has managed to connect very well with him and keeps him interested and focused throughout his lesson. She has helped him gain confidence and I could not recommend her highly enough.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for the feedback. I do appreciate it. I, too, enjoy working with Harry. I think we have the same sense of humour!!
