About Maya

Education is very important to me. I have made it my life and am passionate as an educator on many different levels. I have taught and tutored for over 25 years in many parts of the world including Africa, Asia, Europe, Scandinavia and South America. By immersing myself in various backgrounds and age groups, I have a deep respect for all culture and embrace diversity by implementing methodologies to support it.

For as long as I have been teaching I have also been learning. My knowledge has only grown from keeping an open mind. I understand the excitement of student success and with each challenge there is an incredible achievement to admire. I truly enjoy ever single student and am always happy to bring my knowledge to life.

I take my certifications very seriously and make sure that each one I have earned reflects my teaching abilities. My certifications include:
ESL - English as a Second Language
ESOL - English for Speakers of Other Languages
ESP - English for Specific Purposes
TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language

Aside from traveling as much as possible to understand the culture and learning styles of my students, I am a linguist and grasp new languages quickly. I can speak a few other native languages myself including Russian and Hebrew. Even further, I am able to teach over five other languages including Polish and Spanish.

Please contact me anytime if you have any questions regarding my tutoring sessions and the variety of lesson plans I provide. I look forward to working and sharing with you!

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.

English

I have been teaching, managing and applying various methodologies that fit different learners for more than 25 years not only in English but also in ESL (English as a Second Language) as well as other languages with much success. I have also tutored young students and adults from different ethnic backgrounds and abilities and helped with their Reading, Speaking, Writing, and Listening skills.

I truly believe that every student is capable of achieving his/her goals with good guidance,
simple and practical tools, right assessment, understanding of the student's needs, and filling in what's missing.

It takes both, the learner and the giver to celebrate progress, which will come with patience and confidence on both sides.

ESL/ESOL

My name is Dr. Maya. I have a vast experience in ESL in all the required skills to promote knowledge in Reading & Comprehension, Listening & Speaking as well as Writing.

After 25+ years of experience in the field, I believe that every person who wants to learn is capable of achieving his/her goal with good guidance and patience.

Hebrew

I have been an instructor in Israel for several years. My students have ranged from ages K-12, graduate students and adults. I have also been a Hebrew tutor for various schools and synagogues in the past.

Russian

I have taught and tutored Russian in the United States for more than 6 years. My clients included corporate executives for sales purposes as well as students in private homes. My classes incorporated reading, writing, listening and public speaking skills.

TOEFL

As an educator and a linguist, I had an opportunity to travel, work and live in Asia, Africa and other continents to teach and train teachers and students in IELTS and TOEFL.
I will not deny; it can be overwhelming at times but putting it in perspective and explaining how it all works, the students follow the process and excel.
I am a strong believer in hard work, patience and guidance; it can do wonders on both sides- the giver (teacher) and receiver (students).

Exceptional tutor

Maya has had a profound impact on my son's Hebrew literacy and has dramatically advanced his knowledge and ability in reading, writing and speaking Hebrew. We are very proud of all that our son has accomplished under Maya's tutelage and are very grateful that we have such an amazing linguist teaching our son.
