I am a recently retired engineer. I spent last summer working in a City of Detroit grade school as a tutor. About ten years ago I taught Environmental Science classes at Wayne State as an adjunct faculty. This is the only official experience I have had teaching/tutoring; however during my academic career I frequently explained course material to fellow students and to study partners. During the 30 years I worked as a Chemist and as an Engineer I was frequently asked to explain technical information to a lay audience since I seemed to have a knack for doing just that. I would classify my tutoring style as "old school." Ladies and gentlemen, the best way to learn a problem-based subject such as math or chemistry is to solve problems; there are no short cuts.
I am also a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Michigan. I am a recently retired engineer. I spent last summer working in a City of Detroit grade school as a tutor. About ten years ago I taught Environmental Science classes at Wayne State as an adjunct faculty. This is the only
I love working with Maria! I enjoy her sense of humor! I find chemistry mostly boring, yet she keeps me laughing throughout the session and her texts! She is very knowledgeable and explains things in a way that I can understand them. I usually need things explained things 2-3 times to me in a few different ways before I grasp a concept. She NEVER seems irritated or makes me feel bad. Maria is very kind and patient and I left our session feeling smarter than when I came!
From my experience Maria is and excellent tutor. My daughter found her easy to talk with and explain things so she'll understand. Maria also points out things that will help my daughter through out the school year. Thanks Maria
Very patient and easy to follow. I am catching on well. She is very down to the point and explains well what I need to learn.
Very patient and helpful! She really helped me with understanding each and every problem, extremely helpful! I look forward to working with her again.
Maria made me feel very comfortable during the lesson. She also managed to make macroeconomics NOT so boring! A very good listener and a teacher.
I am 100% satisfied with Maria's tutoring service. Maria has great patience also very knowledgeable of her Biology/chemistry teaching. I highly recommend Maria to anyone who is looking for a tutor!
Maria is very patient and willing to go the extra mile if you aren't understanding the material! Overall a really good tutor.
Maria is not only the best tutor I ever had in the past, but I also enjoy her humor. I feel so at ease with her that I simply learn more with her than my instructors at my college. I would gladly give her 6 stars if I could.
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.
