Hi there! I'm Maria. I have over twenty years of experience teaching high school and college level English and Humanities and strive to help my students learn how to learn as well as master specific subject matter. I look forward to helping you strengthen your critical thinking, reading, and/or writing abilities (and making the process enjoyable)!

I earned my BA with Honors in English from UC Berkeley (minor in Spanish) and went on to earn a PhD in English Language and Literature. Whether you need help with an essay, reading comprehension, research and editing, or test prep, I would be happy to assist you. My teaching experience is supplemented by my professional experience writing and editing academic books and articles.

Finding the right teacher makes all the difference; I am flexible and adapt my teaching style to meet the needs of my students.

I have extensive experience teaching one-on-one as well as in group environments and am committed to helping my students achieve their goals.

Simply Great!

Simply Great! Marie helped me a lot with revising my 4 essays within a short period of time. Looking forward to working with you on other essays.

Very experienced tutor with beautiful writing

Maria helped me revise my application essay. The essay was a rough version but her editing improved it a lot. She has a lot of experiences both helping students prepare their materials for grad school and assessing the materials of applicants. She made my essay more engaging and improved the quality of language. She noted areas to improve In capital letters in the essay, which I found very effective. She also wrote down detailed suggestions for how to rewrite.
