Experienced Language Tutor

I am a native Spanish Speaker. I teach EFL (English as a Foreign Language), Spanish and French and Dutch. I am passionate about learning and teaching languages. As someone who has lived in many cities around the world and has achieved fluency in multiple languages, I understand the challenges faced by my students and also how to overcome these. It gives me great satisfaction to see my students make progress. I enjoy every aspect of language learning and teaching. I have been teaching English as a Second Language and Spanish for the last 15 years to children and adults in school, at home, one to one and in group settings. I tutor individuals looking to travel, study, work or live abroad. I am currently teaching 13 students at different levels.

Maria is honestly the kindest and most amazing Spanish tutor that I could have asked for. I have 1 hour sessions with her twice a week and I find them the most productive and useful. She helps me to fully understand the tenses, learn new vocabulary and how to complete GCSE exam papers for Spanish. She goes through work that I do at home and explains to me my mistakes, which is super helpful. Hopefully with her help, I can boost my GCSE grade this year. :)

Maria has been such an amazing teacher over the past 3/4 years. I started off knowing no Spanish at all, and because of her I was able to study Spanish at university. I look forward to my lesson with her every week, she is so patient and when I don't understand something she is thorough and always goes back to help work on my weaknesses. She is encouraging and has never put me down or made me feel incapable. I would definitely recommend Maria whether you are a beginner or doing your GCSES or A-levels.

For most of the last year, my 9 year old has been having one-to-one French lessons with Maria. He started as a beginner and has come along in leaps and bounds. He thoroughly enjoys his lessons and always looks forward to them. I really rate Maria's strategy of mixing formal lessons with song and online games for keeping my son's interest. He can count, name body parts, conjugate his verb and hold basic conversations in French. I am impressed! Maria herself has a warm and kind personality and is thoroughly professional. We recommend her as a French tutor.

Maria helped me a lot today. When I didn't understand something, she gave me time to think and answer again. She also explained everything very clearly. A great tutor.
