About Maria

I have been tutoring for nine years in a private learning center. At the learning center I have had the unique opportunity to work with students of various age groups and diverse background. My responsibilities involved providing instruction for students k-12. I engaged in challenging them with reading and writing strategies, while making their learning multi-dimensional. The areas of instruction included writing and revision, vocabulary, test prep in NjASK and SAT Reading and writing sections.

I enjoyed working one on one with students as well as in small classroom settings. My favorite part of tutoring is observing student growth and confidence development. I particularly enjoyed teaching how to analyze readings and revising written drafts. My students comprised those who spoke English as second language and I taught them how to challenge themselves to read critically , while building their vocabulary, structure, pronunciation, and applying it within writing. I am ESL certified, TOEFL proctor, SAT Writing , Writing. I look forward to hearing from you and would be happy to schedule a lesson to meet your academic needs.
