My teaching and tutoring style is interactive and as fun as the subject allows. I believe in hands-on teaching, in practicing to master skills, and in making the lesson as interesting as possible. From my own experience as both a student and an educator, if we do not enjoy what we are learning we may learn the subject but may not master it. According to the many parents I interact with, I am extremely patient. According to many students I work with, I am not like other librarians they have met. I think they mean I am full of energy, sometimes forget to whisper, usually have a smile when I see them, and find any excuse possible to sit on the floor.

My experience is completely in the education sector as a tutor, science teacher, or librarian. I am also trained in the Lindamood-Bell program and I am able to tutor reading and spelling. Due to my science background, math (elementary through Algebra) is also a strength.

Maria’s subjects

American History

I have a minor in Political Science that led me to studying some American History at the college level.

Biology

My B.A. is in Environmental Studies which required the extensive study of Biology.

Elementary (K-6th)

Most of my teaching experience is in the 6th grade. I have a B.A. in science which included a very strong math and science background. I also have a minor in political science, giving me a good foundation in social studies. Finally, I am trained in the Lindamood-Bell program for phonics and phonetics, and took children literature courses to complete my masters. I passed certification with WyzAnt in: elementary math and science, social studies, phonics, reading, writing, grammar, all of which are related to elementary education.

Elementary Math

My undergraduate degree is in the sciences which required many math courses at the college level.

Elementary Science

My B.A. is in Environmental Studies which required me to study a bit of all scientific disciplines.

ESL/ESOL

As a student that came to this country at the age of ten, I was in the ESOL program for a year. I have first hand experience of the difficulties of learning English as a Second Language but know these difficulties can be overcome.

GED

I have a strong foundation in all academic subjects, have completed a B.A. and M.A. both with very high GPAs, and am an excellent test taker. I have a strong foundation in English (including reading, writing, and grammar), math, social studies, and science, all GED subjects.

Grammar

Completing a masters degree meant an enormous amount of writing and PhDs correcting and perfecting my grammar.
