About Maureen


Bio

I have been a French and Spanish teacher for 25 years. I especially like to fire my students up to want to learn. One of my favorite activities is travel. It is so much more fun when you can speak the language!

I have also taught English and SAT and have had success with ESOL students. My college minor was Creative Writing.

I look forward to working with you.

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

Each ESL/ESOL student has different needs depending on the country of origin and the skills already obtained. For a beginner adult, we would start with basic life skills vocabulary. For example, we would learn vocabulary and role play going to the grocery, visiting the gym or answering the phone. For a child, the focus would be on learning English through play. There would be an emphasis on vocabulary needed for functioning at school and among friends.
French,

For 25 years I have taught French at all levels including Advanced Placement and International Bac. I studied in Paris for a year and have taken students to France several times. For little children I focus on the fun of learning a language. If they have the motivation, they will later pick it up more easily. For high school students I will evaluate the need and zero in on that. I am also available for conversation groups.

Good Teacher

She is a complete GRE tutor. Review grammar. She taught me to make a essay (both) Vocabulary Quizzes And all other things about GRE verbal part

Carolyn , 28 lessons with Maureen

Maureen brought the results we were looking for!

My son's SAT score for writing was much lower than his verbal or math score. Maureen was flexible about finding times to work around his after-school activities and worked with him for three sessions, focusing specifically on writing strategies. He took the test a second time and his writing score increased by 80 points! We're grateful that she was available to target one specific area in a short period of time, and help him make a significant improvement in his writing score.

Tutor responded:

I was so happy that his score went up 80 points! Wow! He worked really hard and it paid off.

Great tutor, very patient and uses creative ways to teach

My niece is in tutoring with Maureen for high school Spanish II, a subject she attempted to drop prior to tutoring. Maureen is a good tutor she seems committed to helping my niece learn Spanish by taking her time and breaking concepts down. She also uses a variety of tools to teach and help my niece learn. My niece now has more enthusiasm about learning Spanish and she looks forward to her tutoring sessions with Maureen.
