About Maria

I am a tutor with more than 15 years of experience. I began tutoring children to help out with homework and started loving it. After a while, I also started tutoring young adults who needed to take the TOEFL and/or IELTS. Because I had such a great relationship with the parents and I had also worked as an ESL teacher, I began teaching English to adults.
What I love about tutoring is the relationship with the student. It is amazing to see their success and how we are able to positively influence someone's life. I am still friends with the first children I tutored. They are now in Med School and I am very proud to say that I was their tutor for 3 years.

I have tutored Prealgebra and Algebra 1 for years. These two subjects are the basis of Math. Students that I have tutored have gone from average D to average A/B after being tutored by me.

I have the Proficiency Certificate and I have tutored young adults for many years helping them study for the IELTS, the TOEFL, and English as a Second Language. All of the students who I tutored got the grade they needed to enroll in their university of choice in the United States and in Europe.

I am a Portuguese native speaker, and I love to teach. My first job was at Berlitz and I used to teach Portuguese to diplomats and business executives who had moved to Brazil for work. I worked at Berlitz for 3 years, and I was the most active Portuguese teacher at the time because the students were very satisfied with my ability to make them speak without being shy.

I am a people person. I love to be with people and to help them. My tutoring goes beyond the class itself. I also provide exercises that I can correct at a time other than class. I also help my students with their self esteem. It is very important to me that my students trust themselves and know that their success indicates that I am doing a good job.
