My teaching approach is communicative. Students are exposed to the four skills of language learning (Listening & Reading Comprehension, Speaking and Writing). The lessons are tailored to the specific needs of each student. Different topics are discussed to improve fluency.
I'm a Certified ESOL Instructor with over 35 years experience in the USA and abroad. I teach all levels from Beginners to Test Prep. I have experience teaching students from different countries -Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Venezuela, Brazil, etc.
Maria E. is one of the most committed and trustworthy ESL instructors I have ever worked with. In fact, I was her direct supervisor for quite a few a number of years, and she proved to be a very dedicated teacher who was able to make all her students succeed. In addition, she employs effective and fun techniques and methods that will completely assure your learning of spoken and written English.
I took many lessons in person with Maria and I can say that of all the teachers that I had, she is the one who challenged me the most. She knows how to be patient and strict at the same time, and most important, she can clarify any doubts about grammar/vocabulary, which is not that common, trust me. If you really want to, it’s impossible not to improve. My piece of advice is to let her follow her syllabus and talk to her as much as you can about whatever you like, learning will even be a pleasure
Maria has worked as an English teacher for more than 35 years. She is dedicated, responsible, and totally committed to her job. She has never had complaints from her students.She is a knowledgeable and passionate teacher.
I know Maria as a colleague. She's very organized. She's pleasant and her students really admire her extensive knowledge.
Not only does Maria have a handle on all the grammar, she knows what students need to do to help pass all the important tests, TOEFL, TOEIC, Cambridge, and more. She can help with the technical aspects of writing well in English as well as the conversational, casual, pieces of it. On top of all that, Maria has a huge heart and fantastic sense of humor. She is all in for her students, 100% professional, personal, and pragmatic.
I took lessons with Maria for the TOEFL. Thanks to her, I achieved a really high grade; but more importantly, her training has continued to help me over ten years later in both writing and speaking.
Maria E was my English teacher during my más level. She helped me to improve my writing, guiding me to think in English and organize my ideas. For me her clases were very valuable and I had fun at the same time. Completely recommend her.
I've studied English with Maria in 2017, she really helped me achieve a good result on my TOEFL exam! She is a very professional teacher (her lessons consist on writing, listening, speaking and reading, she also spends a lot of time in conversation with her students), but she is also an awesome person (you feel like you can talk to her about everything you want and if you have a problem she'll be there, ready to help you). I really enjoyed studying English with Maria and she helped me so much! What a beautiful experience, definitely recommended!
