About Maria

My name is Maria and I am bilingual in both English and Spanish. I like being a tutor because I get to help students advance in their studies. I understand that school work can be stressful especially if it is the subject that 's hard to comprehend. I am a dedicated and passionate person who believes that education is the key to success. I know that everyone learns differently and therefore I take the time to evaluate what works for the student for them to succeed. I received a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and I am currently pursuing a Psy.D degree in the same field. I am now working for an online tutoring for almost a year. I am available Monday through Friday and every other weekend either online or in person.
My Tutoring experience started in 2007 where I tutored and mentored at-risk youth. I was employed at a youth center where I had to develop lesson plans which involved reading and writing activities. I worked at the youth center for a couple of years. During the same time, I tutored at continuation school teaching high school students writing and reading skills. After gaining work experience, I transitioned and gained experience working with students that range from preschool to high school. I also have online tutoring experience in where I help students with their school assignments. I tutor online students throughout the United States in a variety of subjects. I enjoyed interacting in person and online with students.


I have experienced in proofreading, grammar, vocabulary, and reading skills. I have a psychology background degree, and I can tutor students in this subject. I am familiar with APA style and research method.

I feel comfortable tutoring English as a second language.

As a tutor, I guarantee I will give my best to help you succeed. I am responsible, dedicated, and professional. Feel free to contact me for more information.
