Bio

I began tutoring when I was in high school. I was a member of the math honor society, Mu Alpha Theta, and found that helping other students with math was a very rewarding experience. Later, when I was in college at Columbia University, I began to share my knowledge of physics. I have since taught physics and astronomy at the college level and tutored in basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and SAT prep. In addition, I have earned a master's...

I began tutoring when I was in high school. I was a member of the math honor society, Mu Alpha Theta, and found that helping other students with math was a very rewarding experience. Later, when I was in college at Columbia University, I began to share my knowledge of physics. I have since taught physics and astronomy at the college level and tutored in basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and SAT prep. In addition, I have earned a master's degree in educational psychology, as well as a graduate certificate in educational technology, from Rutgers University. This training has taught me how to most effectively teach students so that they develop not only a deep understanding of a particular subject, but also a stronger set of self-directed learning skills.

While I enjoy the classroom, I find that working with students one-on-one is the most effective way to help them learn. One of the greatest feelings is when I am able to help a student to experience one of those "light bulb" moments, when they finally, really get it. And then to watch them take it and run... It is one of my favorite things.

Patient & Understanding

I am a special case, and Maria was patient and understanding. I will need a tutor as I move forward, and I will be using Maria when the time comes. I didn't get a chance to fully utilize Maria and this silly review form is demanding I lay down at least 160 characters; if I didn't have such a good feeling about Maria and I didn't want to leave her a glowing review, I would have closed this form the first time it asked I type more than wnted to say. Use Maria, she rocks! .

Always available.

Maria was a great tutor, she was always available whenever I needed help. Very reliable. She definitely helped me pass my calculus class.

Awesome tutor.

Maria was an awesome tutor, helping my daughter in both AP Chemistry and AP Calculus. She was easy to reach and made her schedule fit ours. My daughters grades greatly improved in both classes.
