About my sessions

The lesson structure consists of:

>> 15' of a powerpoint presentation on the topic in focus. I have separate presentations on each topic and question of the exam paper.

>> Exercises we practise together: I give you 10' to write a response, followed by feedback.

>> A lesson summary at the end of the class.


For my pupils, I also offer the following:

For my pupils, I also offer the following:

-> Free resources: After each class I send you the powerpoint presentations for you to keep as a reference.

-> No extra charge for marking homework: This is free. I do not ask pupils to book a Written Work Review.

-> Progression report: To help you organise your studies and to show you how far we progress.

-> Vocabulary quizzes: To get you to improve on your use of academic phraseology.

-> Real life literary criticism: (For literature pupils) We go through examples of real life criticism written to boost your analytical skills faster.


Yet, all the above are most effective when personalised to the needs of each pupil. Hence, I encourage you to let me know of your strengths and weaknesses, what you find most interesting and most challenging, and how I could best help through booking a free meeting with me first.


I look forward to meeting you, and wish you the best for this academic year!:)

Maria is an excellent tutor with expert subject knowledge. She helped me target weaknesses in French and even suggested things to take a look at beyond the curriculum (such as French music). I have really enjoyed my lessons with her as I felt like I've been challenged which has allowed me to progress and achieve a grade 8 in my GCSE mocks. I now enjoy learning French much more and I wish to continue it in the future. I would definitely recommend Maria!
