About this tutor

I am an ESL teacher at an adult school, and I have been tutoring students in ESL for the past 20+ years. I have taught and tutored students from all over the world. My students have gone on to study at universities and to successful careers. 

I hold a master's degree in political science, a TESL certificate, and a California designated subjects teaching degree in ESL.

I hope to hear from you and to find out whether we can potentially work together!

Everything. I love seeing my students succeed, and knowing that I had a hand in making it happen.

    Maria is very professional and knows how to focus on areas which need to be improved. The lessons I took significantly improved my English level.

    Maria is an amazing person and tutor. She was teaching me in a very structured and organized way. After recognizing my difficulties, she created a specific plan for me that fitted the short time that I had. In addition, she reviewed a final paper for me and it was very helpful. Maria is highly recommended.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Before meeting with a student for the first time, I ask the student to send me a writing sample for analysis. Then I meet the student for a free consultation. At that point I have a conversation with the student, and we decide whether we wish to proceed with lessons. If the student does wish to proceed, I create a personalized study plan for the student. I generally like to meet for one hour once per week, as I give the student a lot of independent work. I view my role as that of someone who needs to teach the student how to learn and be independent. Upon completion of my lessons, I fully expect my students to be far more ready to take on the English language by themselves!
