Maggie is a qualified teacher and experienced tutor. Her approach to tutoring is thorough, resourceful and supportive.
"Maggie, has been a remarkable teacher to work with. She is extremely well organised, encouraging and sets the bar high. She is immensely patient and constantly supporting the students to improve their German skills. It was impressive to see how well prepared she was prior to each lesson. She has managed to instil a love of the subject in our son."Mother of German Student
"My daughter is thoroughly enjoying her lessons with Alex. She thinks he is so funny and makes the lessons and German so enjoyable. He is also on the ball with the curriculum and what is needed for the MLAT exam. We both really didn’t think the online lesson would work so well - it’s brilliant"Mother of Year 12 Student
