About Maria

I have taught and tutored French in US for over 15 semesters, and I am well familiar with the best practices to teach the French language, both spoken and written, to students who are not native French speakers. My students have ranged from middle school to undergraduate students.

I am flexible on meeting times and tutoring schedule, equally happy to work with students looking for intense sessions a week before a major exam, and with those who prefer to have regular sessions throughout the school year.

I am fluent French speaker with over 20 years of professional practice, graduate education in French literature and cinema, and teaching certification. I am a native Bulgarian speaker practicing daily. I started studying Russian at age 10 and had formal education in it for over 10 years, including a year of undergraduate studies in St. Petersburg, Russia.

I have passion about the art of film, backed by substantial graduate course work, seminars, discussions, and intimate knowledge of the classical and modern French, American, English, Russian, and Bulgarian film. Having seen with professional scrutiny over 20 thousand hours of film, I can easily draw parallels between different productions, provide in-depth overview of the entire filmography for many directors and actors from the cinema schools mentioned above.

I am very open to the needs of my students and always striving to deliver the help and knowledge most appropriate for their goals. I readily adjust to students age, language level, and learning speed to make the tutoring process maximally useful and pleasant. Currently, I teach at a university in Maryland with a moderate load. My schedule is flexible I will be happy to work out with you convenient time for online or in-person tutoring sessions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
