Here is some feedback from students of mine:
Celia, 39, absolute beginner, September 2020:
The last time I rode a bike, I was 11 years old. Of course, I was very afraid to start riding again and decided to look for help. I found Maja over the internet and it caught my attention because of her method: she believes in patience and in learning step by step. And so it was, all along the course, Maja was patient, very professional and focused on helping you to create the confidence you need when learning a new skill. I am very grateful for Maja's help. And I can now ride a bike! She is 100% recommendable.

I just wanted to let you know that thanks to you I went on two rounds around tempelhofer feld today. Thank you! I fell down while trying to “signal” but otherwise it was quite nice!! All thanks to your amazing teaching and patience. And thank you so much, Maja, for making my cycling dreams come true!
Alexandra, 32, June 2020, after two lessons of Level II and III:
I am absolutely and 100% convinced that Maja is the best bike teacher ever! Thanks to her me and a friend of mine got over our fear of cycling. She taught us from the beginning techniques which made everything on the bike much easier and understandable. We did together exercises, which we later on practiced by ourselves and the improvement was really there.
Maja took us to the streets and explained to us very detailed all different obstacles on the streets, signs, regulations etc. She made us feel very safe and confident.
Thank you very much for your great help, Maja!

I have bought a bicycle and I have been riding a bit. I feel confident about doing it. I think that practise is in the moment what I need.
I want to thank you for your patience, you definitely changed my life. I will recommend your services to anyone that wants to learn how to ride a bicycle fast and save. I am really happy that I contacted you, I couldn’t have find someone better to teach me and I will be always grateful for everything.

I came to Maja as a complete beginner in riding a bicycle as I have not learned as a child. I was very anxious to fall and injure myself. To my surprise, this did not happen at all, which shows what a great teacher Maja is. Moreover, the lessons were fun as Maja is a very patient and encouraging teacher. I managed to balance myself on a kick bike from the first lesson and was riding a bike by the third lesson. All in all, it took me only five 90 minutes lessons with Maja to be able to ride a bicycle with confidence. It was a very rewarding experience and I could not recommend Maja more."

Maja was exactly the type of instructor I needed to learn how to ride a bicycle. Since I haven't touched a bicycle since I was a child and never successfully rode without training wheels, I was very nervous about riding. My first lesson with Maja was with a kick-bike, she helped me practice various exercises on the kick-bike so I could learn how to balance. She was kind and patient and showed me how to perform each action so that I could copy it right.
Once I felt comfortable balancing more, Maja started teaching me how to ride an actual bicycle. Again, she was very knowledgeable in showing me the right steps to get more comfortable with the bicycle. By my third lesson with Maja, I was able to ride the bicycle around the parking lot with ease.
I would recommend Maja to beginners of all kinds, because she can help you get over your fear of riding, or help you become a safer cyclist. She is a very nice woman who cares about cycling and her students. She even provided me tips on bicycle ergonomics and advice on where to purchase a bicycle for me.
Thank you so much Maja!
