    Maria was ashamed of herself

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Maria was ashamed of herself for swearing at the man who kindly asked her if he could help her with her heavy shopping bags.

    It's grammatically correct but I would shorten the end to "who kindly offered to help her with ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
