I am 26 years old, enhanced CRB checked through the Office of Standards of Education (Ofsted) and I offer French, Latin and Classical Greek from primary up to GCSE level. I graduated from the University of Roehampton 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 and I am dedicated to helping my students achieve the best results. My approach relies greatly on providing my students with a firm understanding of the basic rules of grammar, which I believe is essential towards strengthening a learners esteem. I am an organised, friendly and professional tutor and I always ensure that lessons are fun, interactive and fully 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.

Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have a total of 7 years experience of highly successful tutoring and I have gained a lot of experience teaching children of all ages to adult learners.

I also have experience coaching students in preparation for highly demanding scholarship exams, such as the Westminster Challenge and the Kings Scholarship (Eton).

review(s) for Maria.
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
