About Maria

I am originally from the United States Virgin Islands. English and English Creole are my first languages and I grew up in a Spanish-speaking household. I graduated from UNC Carolina with a concentration in Spanish and a minor in Mandarin Chinese. I was a high school teacher, but I still have my teaching license. I have always held an interest in tutoring. I started tutoring in Spanish when I was in high school.

Apart from being a highly qualified teacher, I like teaching outside of the classroom as well. I hope to gain more experience tutoring in the community. I have volunteered with the New Arrivals Institute in Greensboro that works with immigrants who want to learn English. I really enjoyed working with them.

I have played the violin for fourteen years and still play. I am trained as a classical player.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chinese

I have been studying Chinese for almost six years. When I entered college, I skipped the first two levels of Chinese and went into the Intermediate level. I finished the minor with Business Chinese. I won first prize in a Chinese Essay contest.

English

I am a native English speaker. I have tutored non-native English speakers from South America. I believe I am qualified to tutor because of these reasons.

Spanish

I am a licensed teacher in the state of North Carolina. I teach Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 from grades 9-12. I have also tutored Spanish for several years and have served as a translator/interpreter.

Violin

I have been playing for twelve years. I have been accepted into various orchestras throughout middle school and high school. I still play violin, but mostly for my ministry. I am able to teach music theory as well. I prefer Essential Elements for violin.
