Journalist and Law student. I attended Boston University graduated with a B.A. in International Relations with a focus on environmental sustainability and development and Latin America. My other degree is a B.S. Journalism with a focus on trauma and print. I have also completed the IB Diploma, taking a higher-level history, literature, and art. I earned a complete score of 34.

Now I am in my first year of law school at South Texas College of Law.

I have been published on the front page of New York Times, POLITICO, Texas Monthly, Daily Free Press, DigBoston, and on the front page of the Cambridge Chronicle. Hence I have the grammar rules memorized and can help clean up your writing.
My tutoring experience includes help with writing college essays, essay editing, and historical studies. I am also a tutor for the International Baccalaureate subjects of English, Spanish, History, Art, and Environmental Science. I tutored here and there during my college years. Give me a shot! I am enthusiastic and ready to help you improve.

I am a Spanish-speaking native. I can break down the linguistics of the language in simplistic manners.

I enjoy reading in my free time, hence I have extensive knowledge of classics, if I have not read the book you are reading in class in no time I can read it and annotate it.

I have a degree in International Relations. I also have extensive knowledge of American History in the context of international relations, an example of this would be the Cold War and Watergate. In addition, my focus in International Relations in Latin America, hence I have expertise in that area as well.

If you would like to learn more about a specific subject just let me know and I'll research it. I am a journalist, hence researching is one of my hobbies!

Knowledgeable and flexible tutor

My son was taking a very difficult corse and finding a tutor comfortable to help in in this specific field was a daunting task. Maria jumped right in and was willing to help him and work with our schedule. She’s great and will go a love and beyond to help her students!!!

Tanya, 8 lessons with Maria

Knowledgeable and patient

I hired Maria to tutor my 6 year old niece in Spanish. Maria is an extremely capable spanish tutor that demonstrated high mastery of her language and masterfully effective pragmaticism in her lesson teaching. My 6 year old niece is an extremely bright young girl but is easily distracted. Maria was wonderfully patient with her and would always gently bring her back to the lesson if she got a little too distracted. I look forward to hiring her again as soon as we are able. If you're looking for an effective, high level spanish tutor look no further than Maria :)

Russel, 7 lessons with Maria

Excellent tutor

Maria was very thorough and walked my son through the assignment in such a way that it was clear what he needed to do. She was patient, very concise and has a gift with words. She was very reliable and committed to working within a very tight time frame. Very professional, highly recommend her.
