This is how 2 referees rated Mary:
I am a qualified teacher of Modern Languages and I have 20 years' experience of teaching French and German up to and including GCSE and 'A' level with a proven track record of helping to improve pupils' grades. I also teach Business and recreational French and German to adults, as well as providing in house training courses for companies. Prior to becoming a qualified teacher I was a Bilingual Secretary in industry, providing translating and interpreting services.
My teaching experience has included teaching French and German classes of all abilities and levels within the 11 - 18 year age group at secondary schools. As well as offering one-to-one tuition for GCSE and 'A' level, my pupils include adults wishing to learn French/German for business or personal interest. I have also taught adult evening classes to GCSE level and beginners French at primary schools in after school clubs.
My lessons focus on all four language skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. The aim is to make lessons as interactive, interesting and relevant as possible and to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. Whilst using a wide selection of resources and learning aids, lessons are tailored to meet the needs of the individual.

Many thanks to Mary for the time and effort she put in to the classes.
Mrs L Hall
Having very little prior-experience in learning a new language, my initial apprehension towards learning a foreign language (I am 45 yrs old) was quickly replaced with optimism. Mary’s patient approach and friendly nature has allowed me the time to build greater confidence in myself. I am still at the infancy of learning a new language, but know that making mistakes (I make a lot!) is part of the process. Mary has broken my fear of 're-learning'.
She has a very relaxing teaching style and utilises both visual and written examples well.
We are very pleased with Mary's tuition. She has helped our daughter gain more confidence with the French language. I'm glad we used First Tutors. I would recommend Mary to anyone who needs help with their french.
I look forward to one day becoming fluent, that is my ultimate goal. I thoroughly recommend as a German tutor and hope others find this feedback helpful.
She was well prepared for our session and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Have rebooked for a block of six weeks.
