Finding Maria has not only been a privilege, but the methodology of locating her must be eluded to in detail. On meeting Maria, her all-encompassing personality and vitality made an immediate positive impression. Her enthusiasm and energy made me want to set about achieving my goal.
She is inspiring not only from her wishing to proceed with the studies, but from also establishing the reasons for my need to start the tuition. She has a style of teaching that suits her personality; she does not change her personae from being herself and to being a tutor. Her focus was on my requirements and always responded immediately to any questions. She never displayed her knowledge to make an impression.
From the start, she set challenging targets and expectations. Her drive and commitment makes the whole experience interesting and ultimately successful. She encourages participation and goes beyond her duty to give clarity of content. Maria is extremely organized and structures her lessons in a manner, which I imagine is in accordance with each pupil’s potential and progress. Maria has contributed to making my endeavours everything I was hoping to achieve.
I am most satisfied and excited that I have achieved something I did not think was possible. Without Maria's patience, dedication and enthusiasm none of this would have been possible. During most lessons, Maria would not only cover content but also give some insight of the history of the Russian language and also give some background into the culture of the peoples of the previously C.I.S. countries.
In every lesson, she motivates a sense of eagerness to learn. Maria's ability to retain one's attention in this regard is admirable. Maria has the unique quality of utilizing her immense knowledge in her subject; yet simultaneously being able to impart some of this to people wishing to accomplish their objective.
I have enjoyed every minute of my Russian language experience. On each and every occasion I left my lesson with a feeling of achievement. These circumstances made me look forward and encouraged to complete my home study.
From my experience, I can do no more than to highly recommend Maria to any one or a group of students to attend either her personalized lessons or group lectures.
It has been an opportunity and privilege to have Maria as a tutor and now also a good friend.
