I am a certified Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages and member of CATESOL. I have worked with students from all over the world and have experience tutoring adults and children. My teaching style is interactive and learner centered. I want to know what your goals are and to help you achieve them. My own goal is to motivate and encourage all my students to work towards their highest possible proficiency and to enjoy their learning.

I work with English Language Learners on Speaking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Pronunciation. I love getting to know my students, including their interests, hopes, talents and plans for the future. My work with adults includes assigning homework or practice periods after each session and periodic assessments to check in and re-focus goals. Our first meeting may include an assessment test so I can figure out your level, and your strengths and weaknesses.

My work with young children is play-based, so kids have fun while they practice and learn. Children (and adults!) need to be motivated and engaged to learn. I strive to make a personal connection with my students and value the effort they put into their studies.

My schedule is flexible but I am generally available M, W, F from 9-3 and T, Th from 11-4. My basic rate is $65/hr for in-person lessons and I can offer lesson packages at a discount - contact me for more details. I look forward to working with you!

Fantastic Tutor

Maxine is everything you want for someone helping your child learn -- punctual, thoughtful, on top of the details, keeps us informed with the right amount of info and requests for input and most importantly, keeps my very energetic 1st grade son very engaged for an entire hour of reading and writing.

Nice and Patient Tutor

She is patient and understands your goals. Proposes you exercises and also open to every new idea to organize the hour of class. She will also give you homework which is good.

Great English lesson

I worked with Maxine during last week: she was a very good teacher with a big patience to explain me the rules about the pronunciation and the phonetic ( I'm from Italy and I have a very strong Italian accent) and I practiced with her the third conditional. It was very useful for me studied English with her.

Great teacher for Brazilians

Maxine has been helping me with my pronunciation and grammar. We had a lot of interesting conversations, which has helped me improve my english and my vocabulary. She is very smart, and knows all off the interesting subjects. She is very friendly and calm. She is also polite and encouraging. I like working with her very much.
