About Maria


Bio

Hi! I'm a recent math Ph.D. graduate and awarded teacher who is passionate about helping students succeed. I spent the last five years teaching Algebra, Precalculus, Geometry, and Calculus at Western Michigan University and I have enjoyed tutoring for over ten years! I recently moved to Largo and I'm excited to start helping new students achieve their goals. I tutor most math subjects in person or online.

I believe that anyone can learn math with the right attitude, effort, and assistance....

Hi! I'm a recent math Ph.D. graduate and awarded teacher who is passionate about helping students succeed. I spent the last five years teaching Algebra, Precalculus, Geometry, and Calculus at Western Michigan University and I have enjoyed tutoring for over ten years! I recently moved to Largo and I'm excited to start helping new students achieve their goals. I tutor most math subjects in person or online.

I believe that anyone can learn math with the right attitude, effort, and assistance. My tutoring practices are based on the latest research on how students learn best. That is, I get to know each student as a learner and a person so that I can create a customized plan for success and make our sessions engaging and memorable. I have attended bi-weekly training for the last five years on how teach math to maximize retention. I even earned several awards such as the Charles Butler Award of Teaching Excellence, HHMI Stipend, and WMU Signature Teaching and Student Success.

I absolutely love what I do and care about making student aspirations into reality. One of my specialties is working with gifted students. I taught gifted middle schoolers a few years ago and I have been tutoring gifted students since I was in high school. However, I enjoy working with students of all ages and skill levels! Students describe me as caring, patient, encouraging, and down to earth.

I have independently worked with students to improve their study habits and skills in the past. I usually discuss and observe students' tactics while offering more effective and quicker methods. I currently volunteer as a tutor to inner-city children, most of whom do not need help with their work itself, but rather with management and motivation. Thus I feel that my tutoring experiences, as well as my experience being a student, have made me qualified to tutor in Study Skills.

Pre-Calculus

Maria saved the day by being able to tutor my son the same day I contacted her. My son was able to complete his on-line math lessons with confidence. She will continue to tutor him through the year.

Holly, 6 lessons with Maria

My son was delighted with his tutor session

She was easy to contact and worked with our schedule. My son really enjoyed working with her. We will use her again until he fully catches on to geometry.
