About Maria O'Sullivan

Whether you need to improve your communication skills to improve your career prospects or you know someone that wants to brush up their English language speaking skills, working with a professional tutor can be a life-changing experience. As a professional English teacher, my goal is to help my students to progress in life by confidently communicating well in English. I teach people of different ages and have a first-class honours degree in English language and TEFL as well as a CELTA qualification. I have been teaching English in primary schools to children whose first language is not English as well as online to children in China. I have experience teaching ESOL, Functional Skills, GCSE, CAE, IELTS, conversation and fluency practice. Also, I have significant experience in teaching adults privately and in language schools and colleges. I truly enjoy teaching and finding innovative ways so my students stay focused and deepen their understanding. My lessons are based on each individual’s needs and I endeavour to prepare lessons that maximise students' talk time while also sustaining their interest. I teach in a relaxed manner and try to make my lessons fun and enjoyable – learning never has to be boring! I place an emphasis on practice and believe that constant and consistent practice builds better communication skills. Having a good rapport with my students is essential and this is an element that I am proud to say is very commonplace with my students of all ages and all walks of life. I’m invested in guiding my students to reach their goals and care about their progress. I’m patient, encouraging, and pace my lessons well to suit your abilities as well as challenge you. I send regular homework and helpful hints to expand their skills and keep them engaged. I am happy to hold my sessions from my home, students' homes, online and quiet public spaces such as cafes or areas in galleries. If you decide to learn from my home, I’m based in Acton, W3, and the nearest tube station is Acton Town – please make sure you can travel to me before you hire me! I teach one-on-one classes as well as group classes. If you wish to learn with friends, I am happy to teach groups of up to six online thus making the classes more affordable. My charges vary with the location and online classes are the most cost-effective. On a personal level, I love living in London and I make the most of vibrant cultural life though I also enjoy getting out of London and going hiking. Oh, and I'm learning Spanish - so I know what it's like to be a language student! Whether you or your child are keen to improve your English skills, it would be my pleasure to design lessons that will enable you to achieve your goals. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the next steps and I do look forward to hearing from you! Speak, understand, be understood.

Majid A.'s review on Aug 12, 2019

Maria was exactly what I searched for as I needed an English language teacher with experience in teaching the language to foreign students. She has vast experience in that regard and in teaching the language in general. Very patient and friendly with kids and successfully convey the information or accomplish the required practice with them.

Natalija N.'s review on Sep 10, 2018

I was very lucky to be Maria’s student as she made her lessons very enjoyable and easy to follow. Even at times I didn’t understand the subject, she always offered additional help and provided extra material. Each lesson we would do writing exercises which she would mark instantly and give feedback on areas which needed improvement. If you’re her student- you’re in great hands!

Team B.'s review on Sep 10, 2018

(This review was taken via email through Bidvine) Maria has been teaching my wife (from Ecuador) English grammar and conversational skills for eight months now and my wife has improved greatly in her accent, understanding of English and fluency in general. My wife enjoys the lessons and is a lot more confident and independent as a result. Maria prepares lessons that are relatable to my wife’s needs. As my wife progresses, Maria, I hope will assist my wife in preparing for her IELTS exam. Maria is punctual, friendly, well prepared and professional. My wife and I are very happy to recommend Maria as a teacher. Alex

Team B.'s review on Sep 10, 2018

(This review was taken via email through Bidvine) My name is Alexia. I came to London from Italy in 2015. Maria became my teacher and I learnt lots of English from her. She helped me a lot in grammar but most of all in speaking and conversation. She was a great teacher and very friendly. Lessons were always active and full. My fluency came fast and I am now happy to talk to strangers and have found work more easily. Maria also came to my house to help me with my son's English and he had homework from school, she helped him do this and my son's English is now very good and he does not need help at school these days. I think Maria is a really good teacher who cares about her students and makes them learn English very well. She's very good! With regards Alexia

Team B.'s review on Sep 10, 2018

(This review was taken via email through Bidvine) When I first started English classes I was very limited in what I could say in English and I couldn't spell most words, I could only recognize a very small amount of the English language. Now, after only 1 year of English classes with Maria, I am able to understand a vast majority of the words I see and can pronounce even more of them. Along with teaching us, She has become a good friend. I can console in her at any time. You will be lucky to have her teaching you!Muna
