Hello and welcome! My name is Maria and I have 6 years of K-5 homeschool teaching experience and am also a certified 120-Hour TEFL Instructor. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing, Advertising and Graphic Design and have been active in tutoring since 2001. My background also includes having served as a United States Marine, having several FEMA certifications and have volunteered extensively with local schools, food-banks or youth sports since 1985. I prefer working with children through grade 5, but am open to working with all age groups. I am an American-born, native English speaking adult.

In addition to working with large corporations and offering personalized instruction, I have worked with many foreign families from China, Japan, Italy, France and Germany. I enjoy developing a course curriculum that focuses on the students needs and will do whatever it takes to help the student master those subjects. I am organized, professional and personable and enjoy meeting new people and welcome a challenge. My tutoring background has involved instruction in Art, painting, drawing, English, grammar, proper speech in dialogue and conversations and writing assistance. I have worked with clients one-on-one and also in groups up to 5 at a time. When tutoring, it is my recommendation to minimize the audience where I am able to focus completely on the student and the student is not distracted by outside influences. Privacy and comfort for both is key to a successful tutoring session.

I am personable and friendly, yet firm and unbiased with my approach and style of teaching. My training, certification and experience enables my students to feel confident in my ability as an instructor, knowing that I truly care about their success. I provide cognitive reasoning and mastery learning techniques while integrating engaging subject material with personalized instruction.

My teaching style focuses on personalized educational tutoring, classroom management, language awareness, phonology, lesson observation and planning and course materials analysis. All of these are offered on a personal level that makes the student feel comfortable and more open to learning. I am very easy to talk to and never make the student feel beneath me. Every student has their own individual style of learning. I master what works best for each student and work tirelessly to enhance that edge, enabling the student to reach their fullest potential, which increases self-esteem.
