« Me and Maria studied together and also lived for two years in the same house. Apart from the fact that she proved to be a trustworthy person she is easy to work with and has a great sense of humor. Maria has a lot of patience, she is emphatic and her pedagogical skills are well developed and updated, in relation with the needs of the students. I strongly recommend her as a tutor. »

Experienced tutor specialised in Latin languages offering competitive prices for online tuition

Methodology

I split my lessons between grammar and vocabulary practice using various media. I teach thoroughly and aim to leave nothing unclarified as well as to adapt my method to the individual needs of each pupil. My aim is to find a perfect balance between theory and its application in a creative and stimulating way.

Experience

I have a degree in translating/interpreting and have been working as a private language tutor for almost ten years. I have tutored students of various ages and backgrounds with excellent exam results and successful outcomes in terms of language fluency.

Maria is the fun, witty, knowledgeable and devoted teacher you would choose, for sure! She also has a fascinating personality, which will always make you look forward to your next class.

J
Johny

I have known Maria for a few years now, as we are both actors, and can recommend her wholeheartedly. She is highly intelligent, conscientious, creative, able to achieve complicated objectives, think outside the box but able to keep her feet on the ground. An enthusiastic, proactive, self-motivated individual and a real people person.
Yours sincerely

Maria is most dedicated to her work, having wonderful results with young and old students, starting from beginner or advanced level. The unique thing about her is that she adapts her methods depending on the student's interests, capacity and knowledge.

G
Gianina

Maria is an amazing person and a wonderful friend. I will always remember how many times we discussed the empowerment aspect of learning and how important it is to make it practical and natural in the same time. Maria is very passionate about teaching and translates the abstract information into very coherent guidance. I highly recommend her.
