My teaching method is based on educational psychology and adapting each session to the student involved. I love practice tests and creating practice problems for sciences as research shows it is the best way to develop active recall. For languages I focus on communication ability to hone grammatical skills and increase fluency in both speaking and writing. Furthermore, for any literature oriented subject (ie psychology and philosophy) I integrate essay preparation and in depth analysis on each text (yes, i read them with you!) while learning how to read analysis and research studies by adapting the student’s frame of reference to each field of study.
I am a biology pre-med student at Texas A&M University (Whoop!)/ swimmer/ gym rat/ part time philosophy and psychology geek with an affinity for spanish and english literature (thanks Dr. B)
Mariana is insanely intelligent. I could throw any topic her way and within moments she will have a full explanation of why a certain concept goes the way it does or how to simplify complex thoughts. She cares for others and puts forth her best efforts to make sure they feel included and therefore would make sure those she teaches fully understand anything they struggle with.
We know each other through the premed organization AMSA.
Mariana is a very trustworthy person and I have been able to confide in her on numerous occasions.
She has a very bubbly and upbeat personality and anyone would be lucky to call her a friend and coworker.
Mariana strives to achieve her best knowledge and understanding with a variety of topics from schooling to swimming. Not only does her passion for learning gleam brightly but also her motivation to educate others to the best of her ability. I recommend Mariana for those who not only want to learn but for those who want to enjoy learning.
She is probably one of the most intelligent people I've ever met. She taught me the basics in all of the subjects I struggled in and was super caring and understanding.
I have been close friends with Mariana for many years. She is easily one of the most talented, hard-working, and intelligent people I have ever met, but, more importantly, she cares very much about those around her. I know for certain that any student she instructs will be treated like one of her close friends. I have no doubt that she will not only always come over-prepared for instruction but also provide an attention to detail that will help her students shine above the rest.
Mariana has an endless supply of patience and kindness when helping students gain their potential. She has a natural talent in connecting with struggling students.
Mariana is friendly and outgoing. She was always patient with me when I couldn't understand something and brought a wide range of information to the table to help me make connections I wouldn't have otherwise made.
Mariana is super easy to talk to. She's able to explain concepts in different ways and it's easy to learn from her!
Mariana has helped me understand that not everyone learns the same way. By using various teaching and memorization methods, I have done substantially better as a student overall.
