Hello, and salvete omnes! Nomen mihi est Maria. My name is Maria Cheriyan, and I’m based in Michigan. My tutoring experience is extensive: I worked as National Head Chapter Lead at tech education nonprofit AI4ALL, I’m a tutor for professional ESL learning at South Korean company Ringle, and I volunteered with my school’s peer tutoring program.

I am a nationally recognized scholar (both in Latin and college/academic achievement):
- I am a US Presidential Scholar Semifinalist, 2021 (650 out of over 1 million)
- I am a Coca Cola Scholar class of 2021 (150 out of 99,000 applicants)
- I am an Elks Most Valuable Student National Semifinalist and Burger King Scholar (2021)
- I have earned a National Latin Exam gold medal for 5 consecutive years (each year that I’ve taken the exam!), earning two national book awards — one which they had to invent for me!
- I was elected the State Michigan Junior Classical League president for 2 years
- Ask me more about other essay competitions/scholarships I’ve entered and won!

Additionally, I am more than willing to help with college applications and admissions essays. I have significant experience with preparing/training for standardized tests (ACT and SAT) In the 2020-21 college admissions cycle, the most selective one in Harvard school history, I was offered admission to Harvard, MIT, and the University of Michigan with the Shipman Scholarship — all universities I applied to. I am also happy to help students better adjust to virtual school/lessons.

I am also skilled at spoken Latin, winning 1st place in my state’s Latin oratorical competition every year I competed. I have taken 6 years of Latin (including AP Latin) and am very familiar with teaching Latin at a middle/high school level through my experience at MJCL, as well as understanding the process that many teachers use to assign homework and format tests.

I've won multiple national high school essay competitions (We the People, Daughters of the American Revolution, Letters about Literature) and been hon
