About Maria

Hola! Bonjour!
My name is Marie and I am looking forward to working with you! Lets get started! Whatever your educational needs or interests are, I can design lessons for you!

I provide the highest quality learning experiences for all children who struggle with reading. Reasons may range from dyslexia, a learning disability or inadequate instruction in the early school years. I teach students of all ages and abilities to help develop and improve decoding skills, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. I administer, score, and interpret diagnostic tests in order to target each student’s specific areas of weakness in reading. I have worked successfully with hundreds of students of all reading levels and abilities (including those identified with learning and attention difficulties), from preschoolers to adult.

You will be able to see great growth in your son’s or daughter’s reading and writing skills with one-on-one reading instruction. Each child learns differently, so receiving individualized instruction will give your child the best opportunity to reach his or her potential. We work together as part of a team to meet your child’s needs and increase their opportunities for academic success.

I have a Masters in Spanish and a Masters of English from Middlebury College in Vermont . I also earned an Education Specialist Degree from Northern Michigan University as well as an Alaskan Teaching Certificate with endorsements in Reading, Spanish, Art and Special Education. I offer individualized instruction in reading and writing; Spanish, French and Art lessons; as well as yoga.

Sign up today! I am excited about teaching and getting to know new students!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have a degree in special education with expertise in all areas of disabilities. I have worked as a reading specialist for five years and have been trained in strategies for working with children with ADHD. I employ myriad hands-on strategies to keep children with ADHD engaged in the learning activities. I structure learning environments to support children with ADHD, allowing them to take breaks when needed, refocus and support them in developing organizational structures.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold an Alaska Teaching certificate in K-12 education. I am highly qualified in Elementary Content knowledge through the Praxis test. I am also a reading specialist and hold a teaching certificate in Special Education. I have been teaching children for over 12 years and I love teaching!
