Maria is a wonderful teacher with a wealth of experience and expertise of teaching English to students from all over the world. I took private lessons for three months as I needed overall 6.5 of IELTS for my master course. When I talked with her about it, she immediately understood my strengths and weaknesses and made the study plan, clearly showing the way that I should have taken. Therefore, I could make good use of time to achieve my goal.
Maria is also very thoughtful and caring. When I struggled with speaking test, she suggested using skype for intensive lessons so I decided to take skype lessons twice a week for last one month. I was amazed that she always made her time to fit my schedule even after work late at night. So I could talk to her in the lesson just before the night that I had a test, which was helpful and made me very much confident. In fact, there was a marked improvement in speaking score from 5.5 to 7.0 in the test.
I have learnt many things from her and they were not only certain technics for test. What I was the most impressed in the lessons was her words that “falling love with English” was more than important in order to improve all my English skills. I really appreciate to have opportunities to read such beautiful sentences from literatures and films that she cited for me – which expand my world. I always kept them with me and repeated to read them when I had time. Moreover, I tried to read books and watch movies that she recommended to me. I actually fallen love with English rather than merely studied English. As a result, I could gain overall 6.5 of IELTS and start my master course.
I am sure that Maria has been and will be the best English teacher in my life. Therefore, I highly recommend her as a tutor and would like many students to meet her.
