About Maria

Hello!

I'm Maria, a soon to be graduating journalism major. I've never tutored before, but I have taught and led classes related to the school newspaper, of which I was Editor in Chief of for two quarters. In that capacity (and before that in my role as editor and assistant editor of the Arts and Entertainment section) I spent a lot of time teaching experienced and first time journalists the intricacies of AP style writing, the importance of word choice, how to write to catch the interest of your audience, how to self-edit and more general lessons on proper grammar and spelling.

I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others- I find it one of the most enjoyable reasons to gain knowledge in the first place.

I'm a voracious reader, and have been since I first learned to read. As many writers will tell you, reading is one of the best ways to improve upon your own writing. Through reading, study and years of practice I've become a capable writer and editor. My articles have been published in multiple award winning college newspapers and my editing eye has had a hand in those same newspapers.

When I was young my family hosted international students. Usually the students had a solid enough grasp on English to communicate, but the students came to learn and I helped teach them where I could. With patience and kindness I've been able to help many other non-native speakers since then.

If you'd like help with things like book reports, understanding complicated literary themes, comprehensive reading techniques, basic journalism and AP style, or learning grammar, vocabulary and spelling, contact me.

Together we'll find the best way for you to learn.
