About Maria

I completed three intensive tutoring training workshops at Loyola University Maryland, 2011-2012, and have worked as a tutor both there and the University of Koblenz-Landau in Koblenz, Germany. I have over 200 hours experience teaching modern foreign languages in private tutoring lessons since 2012. While my main areas of expertise are German and English, I have also prepared teaching material and lesson plans for local courses in Irish Gaelic.

I graduated with a Writing minor from Loyola University Maryland in 2014, during which time I was well-trained in planning, editing and finalizing both creative and academic writings. I am additionally equipped to help students brainstorm ideas through peer-editing as well as analyze literature to develop the student’s command of style and rhetoric in their assignments. Apart from my Writing minor, I passed the CELTA at the British Council in Athens, Greece in June 2016. The CELTA is an internationally recognized teaching qualification that trained me to teach English as a foreign or second language.

I have been living between Germany and the US since 2010 and am in touch with German culture, cuisine, literature and media in my everyday life. In addition to having lived in and traveled throughout Germany, I have also experienced the richness of the German language in Austria and Switzerland. I received my B.A. in German from Loyola University Maryland in 2014, and have also studied abroad at both the Humboldt University of Berlin and the University of Koblenz-Landau for a summer semester and a year, respectively. In 2013 I passed the Goethe-Zertifikat C1 in Mainz, Germany and speak German fluently.

Be sure to contact me if you're interested in scheduling a lesson. My schedule is very flexible at the moment, and while I do have a number of pre-planned lessons, I am constantly altering my lesson plans and adding new materials to fit the needs of my students. Just let me know what you'd like to work on so we can get started!
