About Maria

I'm a ESL Tutor who specializes in Special Education and Conversational Courses for Adults. I also specialize in Elementary level subjects, ranging from Language Arts, to Math, Science, Social Studies, and History. I also tutor in foreign languages: Spanish and Portuguese.

I have a degree in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language), and another degree in Linguistics. I have worked with the Montessori Curriculum in both English and Spanish. I've applied this Curriculum to Elementary level students.

During the tutoring sessions, I adapt the material to the needs of the student. I believe that everyone learns differently, therefore they ought to be taught differently as well. I also believe that the learning method should be fun and exciting for the student, but always having structure. Thus is the key to successful teaching.
