About Maria

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.

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.

I love working with Maria

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
