About Maria

I have been teaching elementary school for over 20 years. I currently teach first graders. I really enjoy teaching and love to see how my students grow and develop their reading and writing skills throughout the year. I use phonics, whole language, and the Orton Gillingham approach to teach my students how to be successful readers.

I received a Master's degree in reading from Madonna University and have frequently updated my certification by taking additional graduate classes in the area of reading and comprehension strategies. I believe anyone can be a successful reader with the right skills and foundation and currently all my students are reading at or above grade level. I would be honored to teach your child the right skills and strategies to be a confident reader!

I have previous experience and several years of teaching young children. I have a major in English/ Language Arts and have been teaching for over 20 years.

As a current teacher our school district requires our students to be taught with lessons aligned to the common core standards. My students take a common core test three times a year and our expected to show growth.

I have a Master's in Reading and have been teaching in a very rigorous setting for over 20 years. I graduated with honors and my school district only employs the top performing teachers.

As a first grade teacher with over 15 years of experience, I teach phonics everyday and make reading and learning fun!

I really look forward to meeting you and helping you to feel confident about learning !

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. 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.

ADHD

I have over 20 years of teaching in the public and private school setting. I currently teach first grade at Parke Lane Elementary School. This year I have two ADD/ADHD students in my classroom and have had many years of experience perfecting techniques such as chunking activities and providing movement and brain breaks to help my students to complete their daily 5 lessons without becoming over-stimulated or frustrated. I am currently reading a book about ADHD children and specifically a disorder relating to ADD called executive functioning disorder which outlines extremely helpful teaching tips that I will use with my students.
