About Maressa

Teaching is a way to continue learning! I love teaching and learning, knowing that both take patience and hard work.

My native language is Portuguese. I was born and lived in Brazil for the first half of my life. Later on, some time after moving to the United States, I became an exchange student in Germany for a year, which grew my interest in all things German! Majoring in German at Gettysburg College gave me the opportunity to improve my German speaking, reading, and writing skills. During this time, I studied in Germany for a second year and deepened my knowledge of German history and literature. As a teacher's assistant, I developed lesson plans and led small group discussions, aimed at helping students converse in both languages, understand complicated grammar, and expand vocabulary. I have since followed up my bachelor's degree with a certification in German to English Translation from New York University.

I have been tutoring college students and adults in Portuguese and German for nearly 5 years. I tailor lessons to each student's level of ability, so that his or her full potential may be reached.

Please contact me with questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

German

I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in German from Gettysburg College. While there I developed lesson plans and tutored various students, helping them to grow in their conversation skills, expand vocabulary, etc.

Music Theory

I began playing piano when I was 6 years old and through the years have continued playing for pleasure. As I excelled in playing I also grew in my understanding of music theory. I have 4 years of music theory experience, which I would love to share those who would like to learn.

Piano

I began playing piano at age 6 and have continued working to develop my skills. Growing up, I received scholarships to attend a music conservatory. This experience shaped the way I play and teach piano to others. For the last couple of years I've taught beginners. I enjoy putting together a method for teaching piano, combining music theory and playing, which can be adapted to each student.

Portuguese

I was born in Brazil and lived there until I was ten. After moving to the United States, we continued to use Portuguese in our home, including reading and writing. I have tutored many students in Portuguese, helping them to improve their conversational and writing skills. I have also worked on various translation projects.
