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.

Carolinne

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.
