About Mayra

Hola, I look forward to assisting you in your learning needs. When you work with me, your learning experience will be fun and meaningful. My purpose is to facilitate the learning process and provide you with lifelong, easy to learn tools. Whether you want to learn Spanish, improve your language skills or you would like assistance with your studies, I am the person who can assist you with your academic goals.

I am a credentialed Spanish teacher and counselor. Spanish is my native language. In addition, I studied in Spain and have traveled to Mexico several times, including once with a group of my students. My goal is not just to meet but exceed your goals of learning Spanish, English or general subjects. I consistently implement targeted immediate and useful strategies and methodologies in order to effectively work with individual styles of learning.

In the course of my varied careers, I have gained practical knowledge and understanding, helping me foster meaningful relationships with my students, their families, as well with the professionals who serve them. One of my strong points is forming authentic regard with my students as this allows me to easily engage and connect meaningfully with them.

I look forward to meeting you.

Thank you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

We will focus on the student's most immediate needs in ESL, be it pronunciation, vocabulary, sentence structure and syntax, conversational every day language, writing and reading comprehension. I tailor each session to my student's most critical needs. In addition, I also provide study guides and handy notes to easily hone newly acquired skills.

Spanish

Spanish for Everyone! Each hour session will be tailored specifically to your needs.

Are you in college and want to earn the best grades? Are you interested in learning Spanish just because you like it, need it for traveling or a job? Do you want to be bilingual? Are you a native speaker needing help with grammar, reading comprehension or writing?

I am the person who can help you achieve your goals! Sessions can be held in the comfort of your home, the public library or a quiet cafe.

We will practice all needed review of grammatical concepts including conjugations of all verbs: present, present progressive, present, preterit, future, conditional, subjunctive; por/para; saber/conocer; accents and syntax; reading, writing, and speaking, and culture.

I have a California Spanish teaching and counseling valid credential and more than 25 years of experience in education.

Study Skills

Study skills knowledge is essential in order to maximize students' natural gifts and succeed not only in school but throughout our life. As a school counselor and teacher, I regularly share study skills tips with my students at every opportunity. Understanding the student's strengths and weaknesses is an essential part, bearing in mind that we are all unique and we don't learn with traditional approaches. After our first session, I will be able to share tailor-made lessons highlighting the importance of practicing study skills which will be practical to you in particular or your child. We will practice and understand the importance of several skills such as time management , maintaining strong organizational skills that are comfortable to the student and practicing a variety of test taking strategies, including flash cards, mnemonics, music, Cornell note taking methods, among others. These skills will prove not only valuable now but for a life time, as we use these skills consistently throughout our lives in our daily lives, at the job, and with many of our endeavors.

I look forward to working with you and showing you how you can tackle seemingly tough areas like never before.

Empower yourself with practicing these practical skills.
