« Maria Mam is one the best IELTS tutor. She has a lot of practical tips to score atleast a band higher than your capability. If observed carefully one can learn a lot of vocabulary from just communicating with her. Also, she makes students comfortable and has a pleasant personality and aura. I would recommend her if you plan on taking IELTS or want to learn English in General and you will never be disappointed »

I am great ful to Maria for giving me tips on how I can be an effective communicator and better professional. I should say she is very systematic in her approach and challenges the students so as to improvise. Her endeavor has always been to make her students confident in every subject of business english. Would highly recommend Maria for Business English. Thanks Kalpana.
