About Maria

The successful teacher in today’s demanding academic environment requires a blend of dedication, enthusiasm and competence. The result is an educational process that is earmarked by both relevance and meaningful pupil involvement. If you seek a talented tutor who can accomplish the above objectives, then I am someone you should consider.
I have 20 years of classroom teaching experience involving mainstream, inclusion and remedial students, as well as students with special learning challenges. I have also taught English 9 Honors. In addition, I have taught ESL/ENL students for twelve years in a district that is over seventy percent Hispanic.
My twenty years’ experience, my M.S. Degree and my ninety credits above my Master’s Degree do not tell the entire story. My experience and my educational background are only part of what I have to offer. As someone who has raised four children and once earned a living in a non-academic setting, I bring with me a wisdom and maturity that cannot be found in an individual just commencing a career. The enclosed resume highlights further examples of the contribution I can offer.

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.

College Counseling

I have had 20 years teaching and many of them have been with junior and seniors. My curriculum mandates us to teach the students the college process, including SAT and essays.

English

I am certified in English 5- 12 and have been teaching for 20 years.

Regents

I have had 20 years teaching and many of them have been with junior and seniors. My curriculum mandates us to teach the students strategies to get through the English Regents. I have been very successful with Special Ed students, ESL students and my regular Ed students.
