Maria - Central Lewisham - German

Methodology

I have a genuine passion for the subjects that I teach and I have worked with pupils of all ages and backgrounds. Therefore, I will therefore always be able to uncover the beauty in each subject while making it accessible, interesting, and friendly.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

French, German, Spanish, English as a second language, Romanian, and Drama.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2011 - MA Acting/ Drama - University Of Essex
2010 - BA Acting/ Drama - "Spiru Haret" University
2009 - BA Languages
2007 - Cambridge Certificate Of Proficiency In English

- How much do you charge?

My fee is £25/ hour for one-on-one lessons. Different charges apply to group tuition depending on the number of pupils, travel involved, etc.

- Where do you teach?

I usually travel to my pupils' home or to whatever place they prefer, although we can make different arrangements depending on their needs.

- When are you available?

I tutor Wednesdays to Saturdays and am flexible with time. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy whereby the client must pay half the cost of the lesson if they cancel with less than 24 hours' notice.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have experience working with children of all ages, as well as adult learners.

I teach all levels of English as a foreign language, and Romanian.

I can teach Drama up to University level, and can cover French, German, and Spanish up to A-level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

So far, I have mainly prepared students for GCSE and A-level exams, but have also tutored KS3 students and casual learners.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor online over Skype and require payment in advance for each session. I am very flexible in terms of schedule.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning a new language (be it a foreign language or the language of theatre) opens up the door into a new world. More than just a code of communication, a new language is the doorway into a new culture and can give you immense satisfaction once you acquire a level of fluency. I can help initiate you into this journey or help you along the way, and I guarantee if will be worth it.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Since leaving university, I have been working as a private tutor teaching mainly GCSE French and German, but also English as a foreign language, Spanish and Romanian. I have worked with children and adults not only in my capacity as tutor, but also as a workshop leader, both in the UK, and abroad.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, my DBS certificate is valid until October 2016.
