My boyfriend is Spanish and his family don't speak English so I've wanted to improve my Spanish for a long time. After struggling to learn by myself and from my boyfriend and getting nowhere, I signed up for lessons with Maria.
The lessons are tailored to my needs and learning style, and are always interesting and enjoyable. I've made various attempts in the past to learn languages with other teachers and learning centres and I haven't learnt as well as I have with Maria. Doing lessons online is very convenient as it means I can do my lessons anywhere I have an internet connection and so when I'm travelling for work I won't miss any lessons.
I would definitely recommend Maria, she has been very professional, friendly and flexible, and above all a very good language teacher.
We looked for a tutor after returning to the UK after several years abroad and wanted to keep our children’s language skills up. Maria taught French to my daughter and Spanish to my son over a 5 year period. They looked forward to their sessions with Maria and enjoyed the variety of learning styles. Maria was always well prepared, enthusiastic and encouraging. My son achieved a grade A in his National 5 exam and grade A in Higher Spanish. He is currently studying at Advanced Higher level. My daughter has been top of her French class since the beginning of High School. She will be sitting her National 5 French exam this year and is expected to perform very well. Maria’s tutoring definitely gave my children an edge in their language skills as well as greater confidence in speaking. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a language tutor.
Maria is a fantastic tutor who has been teaching languages for many years in various countries. She always builds a great rapport with her students and they receive excellent results every time!
