Maria Barrett

I have been teaching for over twelve years and have taught on the BA and MA degree courses at Bath and Brunel University. I am a qualified teacher, (consistently graded OFSTED outstanding) and my last post was deputy head of English at Salesian School, Chertsey, rated one of the top three state schools in Surrey for English results.

I am a writer and I have published 10 bestselling novels which have sold worldwide and been translated into 13 different languages. I am committed to raising literacy standards at secondary level and run a website – Wordebite.com – that delivers free reading for pleasure on line in daily bite size episodes to encourage reading in teens.

My results for tutoring have been excellent, with 100% A-A* for iGCSE English language, 97% A-A* for GCSE language & literature and 100% B-A* for A-level, both language & literature.
