Information about Maria
I am currently a secondary school English teacher, with a degree in English Language and a PGCE degree in teaching English. I also attain a CELTA certificate, from Cambridge University, in teaching English as a foreign language.
I have experience teaching students of many different abilities and ages. This experience has been very enriching and I feel very passionate in teaching and English, in particular.
I currently teach all years from 7 to 11 and run an intervention group aimed at year 11 students with specific concerns within the English exams. This, along with mock exam marking, has meant that I have gained an extensive knowledge of the GCSE exam criteria and ways in which to meet it.
I am currently based in Portslade and am happy to travel for home tutoring or for students to come to my house.
In my spare time, I enjoy socialising, swimming, travelling and reading around my subject.

Maria quickly made my daughter feel comfortable.Maria has been responsive,polite, friendly and flexible. Maria has excellent subject knowledge of English. I have noticed my daughters confidence levels in reading and writing growing since Maria has started working with her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maria.
Thank you Maria for a superb year tutoring my daughter in GCSE RE. I would like to recommend your enthusiasm, knowledge, organisational skill and reliability. You were particularly sensitive to the health needs of my daughter and have helped her reach her goal of attending sixth form college to study `A` levels.
