Patient and effective

Maria is a great tutor, my son likes her so much because she is very creative, devoted and has a lots of positive energy! She has been tutoring my son in English (reading, writing, grammar) since Nov and I can't say nothing but what a great visible improvement my son made in school !!!!!!!!! He raised his grades not only in English but other subjects as well which only confirms that Maria's work is excellent! She truly cares about her students. I am so glad I hired her and if anyone wonders - don't because Maria is a dream tutor to have.
