« Maria is a great teacher - I am an adult learner who likes to be pushed, and Maria recognised this quickly and always finds new and challenging lessons for me to stretch my abilities. I am sure she tailors her approach to each of her students to ensure that their lessons are just right for them. She is very reliable and personable and fun to learn with. »

Maria - SW8 Wandsworth Road, London - Cello & Languages (English, Spanish) Tuition

Methodology

I love music, languages and helping people. Therefore I find teaching a very gratifying experience. It makes my day when I see my students with a big smile on their faces.

Cello, Spanish and English as a Foreign Language.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

In 2006 I completed my MA in English Studies and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (QTS) as well as a BMus (cello). When I moved to London in 2008 I also obtained the Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).

Cello lessons - £40/hour (pro rata)
Language lessons - £40/hour (pro rata)
Additional travel expenses if necessary (normally £5-8)

- Where do you teach?

I teach at mine and also at students' homes in London. I am currently based in Wandsworth Road (SW8) and I'm happy to travel max. 30 minutes on public transport from there.

- When are you available?

Being a freelance musician and self-employed I can be quite flexible when it comes to arrange lessons. Please contact me directly to make an enquiry.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I do teach any levels and ages (7+) for both music and languages.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I adapt myself to their individual needs.

Background

I've been teaching cello, Spanish and English both groups and 1-to-1 since 2006.

Maria is a great teacher - I am an adult learner who likes to be pushed, and Maria recognised this quickly and always finds new and challenging lessons for me to stretch my abilities. I am sure she tailors her approach to each of her students to ensure that their lessons are just right for them. She is very reliable and personable and fun to learn with.

Maria is a fantastic cello teacher. Her friendly and fun attitude makes each lesson fly by, and I learn so much without it ever feeling like a chore. I am so glad Maria was recommended to me. Her beautiful playing inspires me too!

Dear Maria,

We just wanted to say thanks again for teaching Evie to play the cello for the last year.

She has really enjoyed learning with you. She found you very clear in your teaching, as well as encouraging. She also appreciated your efforts to make the lessons fun for her too.

From my point of view you were extremely reliable, always arriving on time, and easy to communicate with.

We would be happy to give you a reference any time you need one.

Thanks again and very best wishes
