My name is Maria. I cherish education. I believe that education is the key to success. As I succeeded myself in school, I like to help others to succeed as well. It will be my pleasure helping students out to accomplish their dreams.

EARNED 21 CREDITS FROM UCONN IN THE MASTERS DEGREE OF EDUCATION AND CERTIFICATION IN ENGLISH.

ExperienceI HAVE BEEN TUTORING FOR fourteen YEARS NOW. I HAVE TUTORED MIDDLE, HIGH SCHOOL, AND COLLEGE STUDENTS IN VARIOUS SUBJECTS: MATH, CHEMISTRY(including organic), Biology, General Science, Earth science, ENGLISH, SAT, PRAXIS MATH EXAM.
I HAD EARNED A TOTAL OF more than 300 CREDITS BETWEEN ART, ENGLISH, DRAMA, AND OTHER CLASSES.
I do believe that I am a very good turor, not only because of my thorough knowledge and great experience; I am also a caring and compassionate person. I tutor my students with great passion and commitment. I am very considerate and understanding to their situations. I tutor each student with the necessary and good skills according to his or her need. I do not treat my students as one size fits all. I try my ultimate best to accommodate all my students according to their individual needs. I have succeeded as a tutor for the past 14 years, and I continue to improve myself on a daily basis to develop more skills, which would guarantee the success of all my students.
HobbiesIn addition to ENGLISH,I am also fluent in French.I HAVE A MULTICULTURAL EDUCATION, WHICH ENABLES ME TO CONNECT WITH STUDENTS FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES AND BACKGROUNDS. I HAVE VERY STRONG TEACHING SKILLS. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ESTABLISH A VERY STRONG FOUNDATION IN MY MATH AND CHEMISTRY SKILLS. I HAVE THE ABILITY TO MAKE THE TEACHING MATERIAL MORE CLEAR TO STUDENTS AND MORE UNDERSTANDABLE. I AM VERY COMMITTED TO SEE STUDENTS SUCCEED. I HAD A STUDENT WHO COULD NOT GET CERTIFIED TO TEACH, BECAUSE SHE KEPT FAILING HER MATH PRAXIS TEST. BEFORE SHE contacted me , SHE HAD TAKEn HER MATH TEST FIVE TIMES, AND SHE FAILED IT EVERY TIME. I UNDERSTOOD THE AGONY SHE WENT THROUGH, SO I SET MY MIND TO GET THIS STUDENT TO PASS HER TEST. I SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME WITH HER, I DID NOT CARE WHETHER I EXCEEDED THE ONE HOUR AND DID NOT CHARGE HER FOR THE EXTRA TIME. I WAS DETERMINED TO HAVE THIS STUDENT PASS. SHE FINALLY PASSED HER TEST. SHE CALLED ME ON THE PHONE CRYING AND TELLING ME THAT SHE CANNOT THANK ME ENOUGH. BECAUSE OF MY DEDICATION AND DILIGENCE, SHE IS NOW A CERTIFIED TEACHER.
Moreover, I have helped students improve their SAT scores by 370 points.I was able to help a student raise her SAT from 900 to 1270 within 6 weeks. She got accepted at Central and she called me to thank me, so did her parents. I am very happy to be able to make a difference in someone's life.

Maria was prompt in responding to my request. She is professional and master in her field. Most impressively,she relates very well to her students. She makes the material interesting and simple.
We made three appointments with this tutor--she said she would Mapquest directions to our house, which many people have done successfully. She did not use Mapquest, and called for directions after she had left her home. She wrote them down, she said. She called again from a landmark three blocks away and got more directions, but was disoriented. She never made it to the house and did not call to say that she was giving up.
