I deliver Magic Link sessions from my home in St Albans on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm (flexible start times available) and on Saturday mornings 9-11am.
I also offer intensive courses during some school holidays. All necessary COVID precautions are taken. Please ring to discuss.
For any enquiries please fill in my contact form and attach a sample of handwriting.
“Our 6 year old daughter has recently completed the Magic Link handwriting course with Maria, and her handwriting has been transformed. Not only does she now have some of the best hand writing in her class (and have received positive feedback on the improvement in her recent school report) but her confidence has been boosted immeasurably. We now have a child who wants to write and doesn’t hesitate to pick up a pencil and write and attempt to spell words that she wouldn’t have done before these lessons. Maria has been a brilliant teacher-engaging and encouraging and has a knack of getting the best out of a 6 year old. We can’t recommend the programme or Maria enough!” Mrs C Davis.

Review from Mossbourne Community Academy, February 2022
“The training Maria delivered was informative and enabled both me and the team involved in the delivery of the programme to gain an in depth understanding of various steps needed to support student success and improve handwriting. Maria delivered steps 1-4 to a small group of Year 8 students who thoroughly enjoyed the session and made improvements to letter formations during this first session. Observing Maria delivering steps 1-4 was an invaluable experience. Maria has also offered support and detailed feedback throughout the process of setting up the programme.”
