About my sessions

I can assist pupils preparing for their GCSEs, A-levels (AQA, CIE or Edexcel exam boards) and IELTS examinations.


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, then followed by feedback, then again 10' to make changes, then again feedback.

>> Exercises we practise together! I give you 10' to write a response, then followed by feedback, then again 10' to make changes, then again feedback.

>> A summary of what we've covered at the end of the class.

>> Option to download our class notes at the end of the tutorial.

>> After the tutorial I also send you the powerpoint presentations for you to keep, for your own reference and use for revision purposes.


I also send you a checklist to help you organise your studies and to show you how far we progress. As well as vocabulary quizzes and examples of real life literary criticism that helps 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. Feel free to send me a message to let me know, or chat with me by booking a free meet-the-tutor meeting.


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

Maria has been an excellent teacher and I am very thankful to her for supporting my son in English GCSE re-sit. He managed to improve his grade from C to A*. My son found her very helpful and she taught him good exam techniques .

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!
