About Maureen

Having been a Spanish and ESL teacher as well as a department chair, I know and understand students especially high school students as well as children having raised 2 of my own. I am near native proficiency in Spanish having spoken Spanish since age 9 and having taught all levels of high school Spanish specializing in AP Spanish. In addition, I currently teach ESL to adults in the northwest suburbs. My enthusiasm and knowledge is quite apparent as I enjoy working with students of any age.

I specialize in teaching English and Spanish as well as organizational and study skills. My English and language background qualify me to instruct reading and writing at any age or level working to engage my students and tailor my lessons to meet their needs as well as challenge them. With younger students, I make sure parents have a clear understanding of their child's needs and what they need to accomplish. I welcome feedback! I have tutored individual students throughout my long teaching career.

Having taught ESL to high school and adults, I use different learning strategies that work with different age levels. I am current on professional information having retired from teaching recently as well as being required to complete coursework and in service in order in order to maintain my certification. Most importantly, I enjoy working with all students and figuring out what strategies work best for them.

I continue to use my Spanish skills on a daily basis by speaking, reading and writing. I communicate with native Spanish speaking students in a variety of platforms to maintain my skill, and substitute teach on a regular basis in Spanish classes in the local high schools. Traveling to Spanish speaking countries at least once per year also helps to maintain and improve my skills.

Please contact me to schedule a learning session with me and with any other questions you may have. I am very flexible, but want to make sure our session takes place in a secure and quiet learning environment. I look forward to hearing from you to help you move forward and achieve greater academic success!
