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 taught Spanish in the public school system for a couple of years and I also served a a freelance tutor during that time.

I will soon graduate with my Master's in English. My concentration is in literature and my Master's certificate is in Professional Communication. My expertise is helping high school, college, and adult students.

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.

Writing

I am finishing my Masters of Arts in English with East Carolina University, which includes Writing. I am also participating in an editing internship in helping with the publishing process of a series of books.

She breaks down every lesson so that you are not overwhelmed with so much information at once. She is so knowledgeable and makes sure you understand everything. I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with her!
