Map for Mara (Mrs)


Personal Description:

I am a mother of three. I was brought up in London and have reached Brixham via Belgrade, Lancaster, Greece, Angola and Hampshire. I spent years running my own language school in Greece, I have also worked as a translator. I am generally interested in the world around me, people, music, some politics and travel. During my spare time, I am involved in scouting.

Tutoring Experience:

As a student, I earnt pocket money, coaching school children in maths and French. I then spent 12 years in Greece teaching English as a foreign language,having undergone British Council training, both privately and in language schools; for nine years, I ran and taught at my own. I have since taught EFL in England and Angola quite frequently. I trained as a secondary MFL teacher. I have worked as a supply teacher, doing general cover in primary, secondary and special schools. I have hosted and taught foreign students in my own home. Since moving to Brixham, I have coached several children for the 11+ exam.

Tutoring Approach:

When I take on a student, I find out what their goal is and assess their needs. I then tailor my teaching to those needs, drawing on resources gathered over the years and ever growing.
