Hi, My name is Maria. I am a mom to three wonderful kiddos.  My family and I live in Phoenix, Arizona.  We love the beauty of the desert southwest.

I am a former bilingual primary teacher and elementary mathematics coach.  I worked in schools in Houston,  Boston, and Phoenix.  While working for Boston Public Schools, I completed a M.Ed. in Learning and Teaching at Harvard Graduate School of Education.

In 2018, I finished a M.Ed. in Gifted Education at Arizona State University.  For the last 10 years I have focused on encouraging and supporting my children’s interests and passions.  We have a creative learning space in our home where we spend time together making messes and exploring materials.

I founded Guided Learning LLC to meet the learning needs and interests of students in my community. I offer thoughtful and personalized tutoring sessions for each my clients. I have experience working with learners who have vision- and language-based learning difficulties, twice-exceptional students, and students who need acceleration and challenge.
