About Maria

I have been a college-level art instructor for the past twenty-five years and have taught both in the U.S. and abroad. However, I am equally committed to the success of students of every age and within all disciplines. My most fulfilling moments have been through the success of my students.

My approach to learning is by illustrations, and connecting seemingly unrelated things. Learning is self-discovery. If it isn't fun, it isn't learning. My goal is for every one of my students to gain a greater appreciation for life, learning, themselves, others, and the world around them.

I have spent my adult life as an educator. Subjects that I am particularly passionate about are Art, Art History, Reading, Writing, and History. I also find Science and Math fascinating, and relevant to all things.

I am available throughout this summer M-F, from 11 am-5 pm. I will also consider other scheduled times on a student by student basis. I am very flexible in my approach to teaching and in tackling various subject matter.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a minister and scholar of the Bible for the past eighteen years. I have been conducting Bible studies with interested students on a weekly basis for the past fourteen years. Bible studies include understanding the order and relevance of Bible books, the theme of the Bible, history, prophecy, laws, principles, and application in one's personal life,

Career Development

I have twenty-five years experience as a college instructor, during which I have regularly advised both high school and college level students in a variety of disciples on their education, career, and life goals. I also devised and conducted a career readiness program for independent learners.

College Counseling

I have twenty-five years experience as a college instructor, during which I have regularly advised both high school and college level students in a variety of disciples on their education, career, and life goals. This included teaching several courses about the first year college experience and success at college. I also devised and conducted a career readiness program for independent learners, which included transition from high school to college. Applying for grants, scholarships and financing college is another area of knowledge.

Drawing

I have a MFA in Sculpture and have taught Drawing 1 for 5 years on the college level. I devised a step-by-step drawing program for beginners, which I have used to teach both college students and independent learners.

Homeschool

I co-founded and administered a homeschool organization for five years that supported students academically and socially, which included organizing monthly field trips. I regularly worked one-on-one with homeschool students and their parents to attain their academic and career goals. I also conducted extensive research on the homeschool movement in the U.S. and other countries.

Project Management

I have worked as an administrator for over five years specifically on project or program development and management at several colleges/universities. Areas include a visiting artists program, city-wide mural program, sculpture facility design, 4 yr. sculpture program, new faculty orientation program, staff development program, and filing system design.

Study Skills

I have been assisting college students with developing and improving their study skills for the past twenty-five years.
