Maura is a patient teacher who teaches me English speaking. She helps me to speak more accurately but is not too direct or strict in her approach, which helps me to feel comfortable and confident in the lessons. l appreciate it.
I come from Beijing and practice oral English with Maura for quite a while. She is warm, patient, always willing to help, we have been learning and chatting as well as sharing lots of feelings,and opinions towards various issues. I do enjoy a lot.
I highly recommend Maura as an English teacher! I have had the pleasure and luck of having online classes with her in the past. That was the best decision and she supported me a lot with my current proficiency. Besides, her enormous ability to connect with her students and the skills at teaching are unquestionable and make her unique. She is not only talented but also passionate about it. Friends of mine in Brazil have also learned with her and the feedback was very positive.
Maura is a very good English teacher, her method is easy to learn and understand the English language. I improved my English a lot during the 6 years that I've been studying with her.
I have been learning and practicing English with Maura for a year. She is a very nice, patient and experienced teacher, and corrects my wrong pronunciation and teaches me new English words, and my English level has been improved very much. Maura also taught some of my classmates.
