About my sessions

Sessions are very straightforward: 15-20' minutes of one of my powerpoint presentations on the topic in focus. Following this, we practise exercises on the topic, with breaks every 10 minutes to give feedback.


I always share my powerpoint presentations with pupils at the end of the class, and give homework for extra practise. You can also access my resources here: https://notesgen.app.link/D9GbuDJNtU. I give emphasis on reading and consulting real-life literary criticis...

Sessions are very straightforward: 15-20' minutes of one of my powerpoint presentations on the topic in focus. Following this, we practise exercises on the topic, with breaks every 10 minutes to give feedback.


I always share my powerpoint presentations with pupils at the end of the class, and give homework for extra practise. You can also access my resources here: https://notesgen.app.link/D9GbuDJNtU. I give emphasis on reading and consulting real-life literary criticism and literature, as a way to make you better reader and writer.


I can help with GCSE, A-level and IELTS exam preparation. Here's an example of a series for GCSE Literature:

 - Structuring your paragraph: the extension method

- Exam practise and questions

- Creating your PRP (Personalised Revision Presentations) of the text(s)

- Selecting key quotes

- Themes, symbols and motifs in the texts


So far, I am extremely proud to have achieved top grades with my previous pupils and to have received good feedback.

Before I had decided to take up tutorials for English, I had felt out of touch with the subject. My interest had faded, I started to read and write less and my grades were falling. I had completely neglected the subject. But as soon as I took a tutorial with Maria, I realised why I used to love the subject. Maria took my interests (for me it was painting) and related it to my writing and understanding of the various concepts. I have received so many important tips and methods that I had never even learned about before in school. What stood out the most to me is that she managed to spark an interest in me that I thought had gone away. I now feel like there is hope for me to pick my grades back up and do better. She is a brilliant tutor and I highly recommend!
