Hi there! My name is Maria and I absolutely LOVE being an English teacher!
I have been an Arizona native my whole life. I live with my husband and two kids and our numerous animals. I have two dogs, a cat and five back yard chickens whom I adore.
I have over eight years experience teaching ESL to beginners and two years experience teaching in an online platform.
Teaching has become my passion in life and I am dedicated to giving my students the very best tutoring experience I can offer.
I am very comfortable making corrections, engaging shy students and making lessons interactive and fun!
I have earned my TEFL certification and I am a big believer in ongoing education so I'm always looking for new techniques to help my students be the best English speakers they can be!
I hope to teach you soon.

About Maria T.

Hello friends!
My name is Mary and I can't wait to be your English tutor.

I have been teaching English as a second language to beginning learners for over eight years. Two of those magnificent years have been on an online platform.

My specialty is teaching young learners, ages 4 - 12 but I welcome all ages to take a class with me!

I am a married mom of two boys who LOVES nature, hiking, animals, music, movies, food and of course teaching!

I am very comfortable teaching beginners and my style is fun, silly and enthusiastic but I also do many corrections and have a strong need to help you or your beginning learner succeed.

I am a HUGE believer in ongoing education. We can never have enough knowledge, so I'm consistently learning new ways to help my students be the very best English speakers that they can be.

I can't wait to teach you English and have a great time in the process!

Teacher Mary
