About Maria

I am here to help you succeed and learn to like something about the subject that you may find challenging. I bring to the tutoring session numerous qualifications in order to help you receive outstanding results within your academic endeavors. I possess 10 years of English tutoring experience as an employed tutor at the college level. In addition to a bachelor's degree in English, I am also dual certified in English and Special Education - English (grades 7th-12th) and special education (grades 6th-12th). I was a special educator for 2 years and I worked with students who varied in learning abilities and needs. Right now, I am not only an English tutor but I am also an in-home autism instructor. I have been an in-home autism instructor for about 5 years and I enjoy working in the one-to-one learning environment which is much like the tutoring experience.

I like tutoring because it is uniquely tailored to the individual's needs. I enjoy the challenge of discovering what you need help in learning and then creating ways for you to practice it. It is enriching for me to spend time devising ways to help you understand the information based on your particular learning style. As a former special education teacher, it is very important for me to be able to help you learn at all costs, regardless of any particular challenges you may face while learning. I will assist you in conquering the material.

Awards: National English Merit Award (NEMA), College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) certifications 1 and 2

If you'd like to meet a tutor who is optimistic about your ability to succeed, then I'm the right tutor for you. I will make a great effort to assist you throughout your own learning style. I am extremely patient, kind, and thorough while tutoring a student.
