Information about Maria
I am a friendly and dedicated tutor with a real passion for languages. I enjoy working methodically and thoroughly and at the same time making subjects approachable and understandable. To be honest, I`ve always been a bit of a grammar nerd, which seems to help.
Coming from a family with a long tradition of teaching, I have a natural gift at breaking down information and making it accessible. I also love traveling and meeting new people, which is another reason why I find tutoring very exciting.
Some additional client reviews:
"Maria is a remarkable tutor with a broad range of teaching skills and a lot of
patience and adaptability to her student`s needs! We have contacted her for my
boyfriend`s mother who could barely speak English and is also struggling with
attention and focussing issues and we can say she has done an excellent job!
We could see the improvement from the very first months and she really progressed
since they started working together. Teaching a second language to adults who only
speak their native tongue is quite a difficult task and we can`t recommend her enough
for the job, she`s a pro!"
"Maria came across as a very friendly and accurate teacher in my first
lesson. I could not have asked for more."
"Maria is a fantastic tutor. She really is expert in her field and explains
everything clearly. Maria is extremely reliable, friendly and professional.
She is very well organised tutor. I would highly recommend Maria to anybody."
"Maria is a great teacher! She`s patient and prepared for the class.
I highly recommend her as a language teacher and I`m looking forward
to taking more classes with her!"
"Maria`s knowledge of English language and the use of it is excellent.
She uses lots of examples and notices every mistake, even the minimum
ones and gives you tips and tools to improve."
"Maria is teaching German to me and my 7-year old daughter both had
no previous knowledge and I can suggest her as fast progressing
learning teacher. She is strict and well prepared. It`s been a
pleasure working with her."
"Very patient with lots of energy! Really good with my 6 and 7 year
old girls learning German."

Feedback For Maria (22)
Im so glad to have found Maria. Shes absolutely lovely and my daughter thoroughly enjoys her French lessons. Maria is giving her the confidence to want to succeed.
Maria, thanks for the work you are doing with Michelle . Her home are now being done at a very good paste. She enjoy the lesson and building confidence is the subject. Evonne
Maria is an excellent tutor. She is incredibly encouraging and patient, yet pushes you towards the best of your abilities. I always look forward to my lessons with Maria.
Maria has been great at helping us gain confidence in our limited French and push us hard to demonstrate our learning. It was amazing how much I retained from my old school days in terms or vocabulary and Maria is helping to bring that all together. The lessons are fun and intuitive and I would recommend Maria to others looking to learn. I am just in the process of renewing my lessons for the new term ahead and very much looking forward to seeing the improvements I can make under her tutorage.

First lesson was brilliant. What an outstanding teacher. She has innate teaching talent. I am really looking forward to more teaching.
I`ve been doing Romanian with Maria for a few months now, initially face to face and now via Skype. I enjoy my lessons a great. Maria has excellent teaching skills, prepares well for the class, and provides me with good feedback. Aside from that, the lessons are fun and I look forward to them. Would definitely recommend.
Only had 3 lessons but I`m loving the way Maria breaks everything down and explains it. She fills me with confidence by focusing on the positive from the lessons. Thank you for everything so far :)

Absolute great tutor, who was professional, personable and patient! Highly recommended.
Just adding this feedback because tutorhunt spams my mailbox. But, I never got around to actually taking lessons from Maria. But, she was prompt in her communication when I had made initial inquiries.
