Maria (Tutor in Teddington)
Information about Maria
I am 28 years old, enhanced DBS checked through the Office of Standards of Education (OFSTED) and I offer French, Spanish, Latin and Ancient Greek lessons. I graduated from Roehampton University in 2014 with Honours in Classics and have since set up a private tutoring company based in Teddington.
Students I have tutored have been very satisfied with my approach and the success they have achieved through our lessons. I am ambitious yet realistic in the goals I set for my students and I am dedicated to helping them achieve outstanding results. My approach relies greatly on providing my students with a firm understanding of the basic rules of grammar, which I believe is essential in strengthening a learners esteem. I am organised, friendly and professional and I always ensure that lessons are fun, interactive and well prepared. I enjoy tutoring and my clients consider me to have a caring, professional and diligent approach. My aim is to make my lessons relaxed yet productive. I have tweaked students in the past to achieve much higher than their predicted grades.
Availability: Available daytime and evenings during the week. Weekends are also possible on Saturdays only. Please send me a message if you require more information about my availability.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have a total of 9 years experience of highly successful tutoring and I have gained a lot of experience teaching children of all ages through to adult learners.
I have a great deal of experience teaching the OCR, AQA and ISEB exam boards for Latin, Ancient Greek, French and Spanish, including experience teaching Key Stages 1 to 4, 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance and Scholarship Level, GCSE and A Level. I also have experience coaching students in preparation for highly demanding scholarship exams, such as the Westminster Challenge.
Feedback For Maria (15)
Maria is an amazing tutor and lovely person. We contacted her last minute for some fine tuning for my sons Scholarship Latin exams and within one lesson she had made a noticeable difference. He received an A for his exam as a result. I would definitely recommend Maria.
Maria was friendly, enthusiastic and full of cheer and love for her subject. This is of course contagious and exactly what we wanted! Cannot wait for the next session!
My daughter`s confidence in, and enjoyment of, Latin has increased hugely since she started lessons with Maria. Maria has a calm, organised and encouraging teaching style which has suited my daughter perfectly. I`m delighted.
Maria is well organised and provides excellent feedback. She is clearly a subject specialist who understands exactly what areas require improvement and how to effect this. Would highly recommend for GCSE Latin.
Maria is a super French tutor. She`s patient, thorough and wonderfully encouraging, and always makes her lessons interactive and engaging. I can`t recommend her highly enough!
My grand-daughter absolutely love Maria... from the outset Maria made her feel comfortable and was gentle and understanding. Maria recommended more resources to help with getting more practice of speaking French outside of the `classroom` environment and now the whole family are benefiting from it too. When we return back to the UK we will definitely call Maria again... She is amazing...
Excellent ! She has been an enormous help to my son since we have recently started the sessions and I am sure will improve his grade for French this summer.
Maria is very competent, calm, organised, and effective. My son was not doing very well in Latin - hence the need for a tutor- and now he is enjoying an A in Latin after a few weeks of tutoring. Not only did she teach him Latin, she also gave him pointers on how to study - using different coloured markers etc and how to approach questions. I would highly recommend Maria as a Latin teacher.
My boy was in London for a long weekend and Maria gave him a Latin lesson. My son enjoyed the class with her. Think she is very good.
She has been very helpful in setting up the sessions. She is punctual and polite, and has been good with providing information between sessions when requested. she has a calming manner about her.
Maria tutors my son in French and Latin. she is very professional and I am very pleased with her. My son is really happy as he is a bit shy but Maria makes him feel very comfortable and boosts his confidence.
A wonderful tutor who really inspires my son
