Maria

Clapham Tutor

I am a self-employed Spanish/cello teacher and freelance musician (cellist) – with relevant experience in orchestras, chamber groups, bands, musical theatre and recordings - willing to help people learn & improve their cello, Spanish or English skills.

Tutoring Experience

I have combined both music and language teaching for over ten years, 1-1 and group lessons.

Tutoring Approach

Bearing in mind that every single person is different, I always adapt myself to the students’ interests and needs in order to establish the aims for the lessons. Creating a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere is crucial to get the best out of the students. It is important to get to know the students’ weaknesses and strengths so that we can work on those that require detailed attention and praise every little achievement to keep their motivation at a high level.
