About Maria


Bio

I'm a public school teacher living in Brooklyn, New York. I have taught primary grades for 17 years and most recently 7th and 8th grade English language arts for 5 years. I love the written word and helping others find their voice through writing. I also love reading and hope to encourage and inspire others to feel the same.
I am certified in several areas of teaching including gifted education pre k - 12 , general education pre-K -6 and secondary education 7-12 in the field of English...

I'm a public school teacher living in Brooklyn, New York. I have taught primary grades for 17 years and most recently 7th and 8th grade English language arts for 5 years. I love the written word and helping others find their voice through writing. I also love reading and hope to encourage and inspire others to feel the same.
I am certified in several areas of teaching including gifted education pre k - 12 , general education pre-K -6 and secondary education 7-12 in the field of English language arts.
I can help you with homework, understanding content better, and improving any skills you would like to progress in.
Teaching has been a deeply fulfilling experience and I have loved my work. I'm easygoing, professional and have experience with general education, ESL, gifted education and English Language Arts students. I am currently only looking to teach online. I can help students in groups as well upon which rates will change.
From my experience, different levels may not work well in a group online, that being said I am willing to assess the students and make recommendations on how to proceed with a group larger than 2. I tend to teach through units of study rather than isolated lessons i.e novels, essay study, but am willing to be open to the students or parents ideas.
Although reading and writing are my greatest strength, I am also available to teach mathematics in primary grade children.
Wyzant has also made it possible to teach adults and help them in revising and editing their own writing pieces and I welcome the opportunity to continue to do so.
