About Marija

I have extensive knowledge in teaching methods, which although are written by experts in the field, always need fine tuning. Thus, I make sure that I create the language plan and program in accordance with my student's needs. I teach Bosnian, Serbian, Croatian, Latin, and German. I cover the following test preparation: NLE Latin, OPI, DLPT, and FSI test.

I obtained my BA in Serbia and the United States. I obtained my MA from Ruprecht-Karls University, Heidelberg, Germany. I have also obtained my Latin and German certificate from Heidelberg.

I am fully familiar with Latin curriculum in high schools and middle schools across the United States. I partner with many schools and parents to help their children gain confidence and knowledge necessary to pass Latin I, II, III, IV and/or Latin AP.

I work as a full-time linguist, hence my availability to tutor/teach is in the afternoon on week days or during the weekends.

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.

Flute

"The flute is the extension of the human voice", say the musicians.
I have played for 15 years and am professional. To learn to play the flute means to learn the fingering, notation, the way of producing the sound and proper breathing techniques. However, some of the most beautiful music has been written for flute.

Music History

I earned my masters in Musicology and Art History. Music history or Musicology is a science of historic and theoretic approach to development of the Western classical and non-classical music. That means that when one is listening to Bach or Haydn, one should be able not just to play and read the music, but also to establish the historic relevance of the composition to us today, and to its own period. I can help you develop and understand methodologies that relate to musicology.

Piano

Teaching piano should be administrated by someone who can not only play, but also teach notation and musicianship. My approach differs and depends on my student's needs. However, every student will learn notation, music and sight-reading and learn about performing classical music.

Study Skills

My vast academic career as a scholar and an educator allowed me to gain an immense insight into assessing organizational issues my students come across. I teach college, as well as children and young adults ages 5-14. 33% of my students are dealing with ADD or ADHD challenges as well, so I had to come up with several plans to help them understand the process of studying, receiving and processing information. My plan is different with each individual, as some struggle more and some less. Before starting the process, I conduct a consultation free of charge, which will help me to develop a plan for that specific individual.
