Information about Marina

I am a native EFL teacher with a wealth of experience behind me. I have a B.Ed Hons degree in English and Drama and CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults). I teach not only General English but prepare students for all levels of the Cambridge ESOL examinations, including FCE, CAE, CPE and IELTS. I am dependable, patient and dedicated to my work, ensuring that I fulfil the needs of each individual student. I have great enthusiasm for teaching and have an excellent rapport with all my students, both children and adults, motivating them to achieve what they strive for.

Availability: Weekdays, preferably from 3 pm onwards, but will take on morning lessons too. Weekends, preferably mornings

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: I worked as an EFL teacher at an English Language School in Athens, Greece, for 3 years, teaching General English and exam level classes. Following this I set up my own English Language Institute, which had a constant flow of approximately 180 students, whose ages ranged from 6-25. I ran this business for 23 years. I was responsible for the management of the school, recruitment of staff, and planning of courses. I also played an active role as an English teacher. As well as focusing on the development of general English language skills, we prepared students for TOEFL, the University of Michigan Exams - ECCE, ALCE, ECPE - all levels of the Cambridge ESOL examinations – Young Learners Tests (the institute was an examination centre for YLT), CEFR levels A2-C2, including IELTS.
I have worked as an examiner for ESB (English Speaking Board) and as an EFL teacher of General English and IELTS at Ulster University, QA Business School in London. I am also a tutor in English Key Stages 1-3. I have taught English for the last few years on a one-to-one basis. I help students/adults to acquire/improve general English language skills. I work with children of Primary School level and High School students, university undergraduates and post-graduates. I prepare learners for the Trinity College English Language Tests (all levels) and Cambridge ESOL examinations (CEFR levels YLT-C2), including IELTS. I proof-read dissertations written in English at Master’s level (for students who are non-native English speakers)

I am so impressed, she is one of the best tutor I have ever come across. She is very professional and even within few lessons, I learnt a lot and still learning. She designed lessons as per my requirements in advance so this saves a lot of tuition time and more I can learn. I am very happy and I would highly recommend if you looking to improve your English grammar, letter writing, Business language etc. Thanks SSR

Marina has been my tutor for over a year and in that time my English has improved leaps and bounds!
She assessed my ability level, advised me on books and materials to use, adapted the lessons to my schedule and is now supporting me to prepare for formal English exams. I wish I had found her earlier when I first arrived in this country! Marina is kind and patient but maintains a goal directed focus which has resulted in an improvement in my English.

I have had 2 classes with Marina so far and I hope to have many more in the future. Why ? She is punctual, professional and kind. Also she listens very carefully everytime I have doubts, which is a fundamental feature in a tutor.

Marina is a highly skilled tutor who is able to quickly build a rapport with her students (irrespective of age group) therefore transforming the entire learning process into an intuitive and enjoyable experience. She is currently tutoring my children (8 and 10 years old, general English) as well as myself (Business English) and all I can say is that every lesson is different and interesting, to a point where I am already seeing the improvement of my children as well as my own - and we`ve just had a few lessons!
