About Maria

I hold degrees from Wellesley College in English (B.A.), Harvard University (M.P.A.), and USC (M.S. in gerontology). I love to teach, especially young adults and non-traditional students, and have extensive teaching experience.

I have taught adult immigrants ESL, U.S. history, U.S. government, and consumer economics and also taught at USC, both at the Language Academy (public policy research skills and business writing) and the School of Gerontology (psychological, political, and social impacts of aging on women). Currently, I teach older adults at UCLA Extension's Osher Institute.

I also have a writing consultant business, where I work with academics and professionals writing manuscripts for publication.

I love helping students learn and love learning from them! And I also enjoy reading, writing, and swimming!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL at an adult school in Los Angeles (Evans) and at USC's Language Academy to graduate students.
