Information about Mary

I have been teaching for over twenty years and I am particularly interested in teaching students for IELTS, FCE and CAE English, as well as Creative Writing either for assessment or personal interest. Over the years many adult learners have progressed to university as a result of the good bands they have obtained in IELTS as a result of taking lessons with me. I also specialise in tutoring for GCSE English Language and Literature for a range of examining boards. I am patient and helpful and communicate well with people online.

Regarding the online lessons, since 2006 I have regularly taught students living in France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Azerbaijan, Australia and Peru, as well as many living in the UK who understand the sense of not spending unnecessary time and money travelling.

Alongside my private tutoring I currently work for two well known distance learning college for Creative Writing and Creative Arts at degree level ( distance learning).

I write poetry and have had books of this published.

Availability: Mornings, afternoons or evenings (I don`t mind late evenings) on weekdays. Saturday, all day. I can teach you online, wherever you are.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Experience: I have around 25 years experience of teaching and have worked in both private and state run education. I have returned regularly to teach at a well known private language school during the summer seasons since 2002. I also work for two well known colleges, writing reports for Creative Writing and Creative Arts assignments, up to degree level. Most of my work these days is teaching one to one via the internet. I have also worked as an examiner for Creative Writing and Creative Arts at degree level.

An amazing tutor who tailors our lessons to fit around my personal Creative Writing goals. She sends extra source material after lessons and they are always an insightful bonus. I am using Mary every week via online sessions. Thank you Mary!

Mary is an excellent tutor. Thoughtful and constructive, she is working with me on the novel I have started writing. Her suggestions have been insightful and I`m really enjoying working with her. It`s lovely to have someone taking my writing seriously! If you`re interested in taking Creative Writing lessons and want a tutor who will personalise your learning and work online, I highly recommend Mary.

did not find it very helpful

Tutors Response :

One rushed lesson just before a test when you couldn`t tell me the format of the test wasn`t likely to be very successful. I tried to help though and you could have sent back the tasks I gave your daughter for additional feedback for which I would not have charged extra. Tutoring should be an ongoing process of development as the good results from my regular students prove.
