Bio

Hello! I graduated from Stanford University in June of 2014, and have been tutoring ever since. I especially love working with students on English and humanities. It's incredibly rewarding to help a student put ideas on paper in a clear and compelling way!

Hello! I graduated from Stanford University in June of 2014, and have been tutoring ever since. I especially love working with students on English and humanities. It's incredibly rewarding to help a student put ideas on paper in a clear and compelling way!

I'm no stranger to college applications, and also enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests. I'm always available to edit essays and chat about your college process.

I truly believe that if you make concrete goals and commit to a study plan, you can achieve academic success. I look forward to meeting you and pinpointing your needs so you can achieve your goals!

I have tutored the SAT math section several times, and know the tips and tricks for success. As a self-confessed "humanities person," I've found that I actually have a knack for explaining math concepts in a simple, clear way.

I have my BA in Anthropology from Stanford, and I love the social sciences. I have also tutored the ACT Science section.

English is my tutoring wheelhouse. I love talking with students about literature, ideas, writing, grammar, and language. I've learned what methods work really well to help kids not just improve their papers, but become better writers and readers in the long term.

I have tutored for several major standardized tests before and know tips and tricks for success. It is important to relax, trust your strategies (that we will work on together), and approach the test as a welcome challenge, not a daunting task.

I have tutored several elementary school age children, and enjoy working with that age on schoolwork. It is a very important time in academic development, and I'm excited to be there to help students master educational building blocks.

Please feel free to contact me any time if you'd like to learn more and schedule lessons. I will do my best to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours.

Very good tutor!

We had a conversational class based on TOEFL questions. Maia is very patient and she gave me some advices that will help me achieve a good score on the TOEFL test. She also wrote my mistakes during my speaking, which will help me to not make the same mistakes again.

Excellent!

Maia is so patient, kind, and guided my son through poetry and math. She explains things clearly and my son is looking forward to future visits! She's proactive and did research on her own regarding his math curriculum before she arrived!
