About MARIA

As a teacher, I have three important priorities: to help students to improve their English or Spanish communication and comprehension skills, to build their self-confidence in speaking, reading and writing, and to enjoy learning. I care deeply about my students' interests and goals, and that guides what and how we study.

I think that learning should be both interesting and fun. I want my students to love learning as much as I love teaching. I graduated at Universidad Metropolitana, Caracas, Venezuela in 1980 with a grade point average of 4.50/5, and graduated with honors in Child Development and Bilingual Studies at Santa Monica College, California, USA.

As a professionally trained ESL teacher, I can teach students all aspects of the English language including speaking, conversation and presentation, reading and listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, writing, for Preschool and Elementary students.

I have more than 30 years of teaching experience with children and youth. I am patient, friendly, responsible and dedicated to my students' educational progress and enjoyment of learning.

Hablo español y tengo experiencia y especialidad en la enseñanza de inglés a los hablantes nativos de español y castellano. Por favor, escríbeme en español si prefieres.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son has really struggled this school year with 2nd year Spanish due to several factors including poor teaching. Maria has done a great job explaining concepts such that my son is feeling more confident and excited about Spanish.
