Hi!

My name is Mary and I’m excited to share with you my teaching experience for over 20 years. I have been teaching English as a second language and Spanish language and culture to adults and at the university level for more than 15 years. I have solid credentials: a Master in North American Studies, a Master in Education and a Doctorate in Spanish and Foreign Language Teaching.

I have been mastering both languages since childhood and I continue teaching all year round at college and in the private sector. I customize each lesson to the student needs and take my job very professionally and full of enthusiasm.

I am very passionate when teaching, and my students tell me that reflects on their progress. I have prepared students to learn English and get a better job or just to enjoy travelling.

Focusing on communication is key and a core component of my teaching style. You will start speaking since the first class. I also have extensive experience teaching writing, reading, ...

Doctor Mary is a great instructor. Thanks to her I passed Spanish III at college last semester with an A. I had a C and in just 2 months she made me boost my grade and what is even better.....my understanding on how the language works. I am now doing an online course with her to improve my speaking skills so that I can socialize and travel.
Thank you so much Mary!!! You made one of my dreams come true!
Helen C.
I am impressed with the results I got with Doctor Maria. She is amazing. I took Spanish at high school and college but never learned to speak. I actually was not even able to conjugate verbs correctly.
I contacted doctor Maria and she gave me a brief free lesson to meet and show me how I could improve with her method. She is very patient, personable, knowledgeable and fun. She has made me feel confident in Spanish. I enjoy learning and speaking with her in Spanish every week. I look forward to our next lesson in April.
Thank you so much for making my dream come true, Doctor Maria.
Jaime
Mary is a stellar tutor for TOEFL. I was in need of a plan for tutoring, with a professional of the language and Mary, who holds a doctoral Degree was the perfect option! She has the hands on experience and highest qualifications to teach it. I love the 'interview' or first free class she had with me to help me identify a path and a weekly plan!

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

Great teacher.
Mary Beth Y.
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

"Anna Novikova is one of the most affable and interesting instructors I have ever had, making Russian, which is normally a difficult and intimidating subject, something to look forward to every week. Personally, I would recomend tutoring sessions for the conversations alone, but she also is a very intelligent woman and competent instructor, and your understanding of Russian is sure to improve with her."

"Yongju is the best teacher I've had in language. I originally tried to teach myself Korean but learning to conjugate on my own was very difficult. I told Yongju I wanted to focus on conversational Korean and she has been amazing. She's incredibly accommodating when it comes to lesson times and last minute rescheduling and she records all my lessons so I can review and study in my own time. Going on 4 months of lessons and I feel like I can be close to fluent by the time the year ends! Thank you Yongju!"
