About Maria

I have an innate passion for tutoring students of diverse ages and academic backgrounds. I am a native Spanish speaker with over 5 years of tutoring experience in the Spanish language. I have been a Private Spanish Tutor for students from beginning Spanish all the way to AP/Honors Spanish. My students have passed from a letter "B" grade to a letter "A" grade. They have become proficient in all the areas of the Spanish language which includes: Grammar, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Writing, Spelling, Listening, Vocabulary, Idiomatic Expressions, and Speaking. I tackle all of these areas with several learning methods and interactive exercises. In addition to this, I was the Spanish Teacher for A Plus Spanish Academy in San Ramon. I taught in the after school program with various Elementary and Middle schools located in the area (Coyote Creek and Live Oak Elementary are a few examples). I am a Spanish Tutor for High School students, as well as for Elementary and Middle School students. I can also be a helpful hand for adults who want to learn conversational Spanish for business or traveling purposes, or who simply want to master a new language.

In addition to the above, I offer my Tutoring services in English and Science for Elementary and Middle School students. I have been a tutor for these Subjects since the past 5 years as well, and my students have the best reviews on my work quality and ethic.

I have also experience teaching students with Special Needs. I have tutored a child with Down Syndrome and I am currently Tutoring several children with ADHD. I can say that my success with this specific population is my patience, dedication, desire to see my students succeed,and my teaching method.

I have my Bachelors of Science (B.S.) Degree in General Psychology. I managed to obtain an overall GPA OF 3.5, which translates to perfect "A" grades in classes such as Neuropsychology, Psychobiology, Theories of Personality, Seminar in Psychology, African American Psychology, among others.

I currently hold 2 jobs, I am an after school tutor and I work as a Substitute Teacher with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. The advantages of working with me is that you will be tutored by a teacher with more than 8 years of experience in the field!!

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.

Great Tutor!

Maria is an excellent tutor. She helped my son improve his test scores significantly. Prior to every lesson she would ask what topics needed to be covered so she would have her lesson plan ready. She is also very responsive, reliable and highly professional. I strongly recommend her as a Spanish tutor.
