About Maria

I am a retired elementary school teacher of 25 years, teaching in grades Kinder – 9th. Likewise, I have extensive experience working with students in their homes as a private tutor. Mentoring youth and empowering them to succeed is my passion. Seeing my students take responsibility for their own learning is my greatest thrill and ultimate goal. I am creative, energetic and strive to use any means to secure the success of my students. Having high expectations for my students and giving them the tools to achieve them is an integral part of my teaching strategies.
As well as being a classroom teacher I have also been a master teacher mentoring other teachers in effective teaching strategies to implement the state’s common core standards. Helping to make our educational system a viable part of a student’s life continues to be my focus as I now move from the classroom into your student’s home. Helping parents to find ways to assist in the educational process of their children is also a commitment I make to my clients.


I am a native Spanish speaker and have been an elementary bilingual teacher for 25 years in grades 1-8. Besides tutoring high school students in Spanish, I also tutor professional adults in Spanish to help them better serve their Spanish--speaking clients.

Besides being a published writer, I have 25 years teaching Language Arts in an elementary school setting. As a tutor, I have 15 years teaching writing skills, reading comprehension and response to literature to high school and college students.

I am a retired K-6 elementary school teacher. As a resource teacher, I have also assisted other elementary school teachers in following the state's common core standards in their curriculum.

So often all it takes is a one on one relationship with a tutor to make a difference in transforming a learning different student into a successful student. I want to be that empowering force. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 25 years experience teaching in grades K-8. I have been tutoring students mainly in elementary math, reading, writing and social studies. I also provide homework assistance. My teaching style is eclectic, high energy and I use whatever I can find to motivate my students to excel.
