"Very patient and relates well to kids!"
Jennifer from Rancho Santa Fe, CA on 8/6/13
Mary Ann helped my 9th grade daughter with Advanced Geometry. Mary Ann is knowledgeable, organized, flexible and relates well to teenagers. My daughter was successful in mastering the concepts, and we credit this to Mary Ann's guidance. I highly recommend Mary Ann to anyone looking for an experienced, dependable and organized math tutor.

Mary Ann has been very attentive and uses her extra time for giving us information about financial side of the college application process we had not known that much besides the guidance for the college application itself. My son is very happy with her and she has been keeping him on track in order to make deadlines for early actions too. I can count on her in every aspect of college application process.
"Really helped my daughter with math"
Patty from Poway, CA on 9/10/13
We highly recommend Mary Ann. She was very patient and explained math concepts so that my daughter understood and as a result she was able to improve her math grade. Mary Ann was flexible and always prompt. We would definitely call her again if we needed help!
"Mary Ann is Wonderful!"
Claudia from Solana Beach, CA on 6/6/13
My daughter really enjoys working with Mary Ann! The manner in which Mary Ann presents the material allows for a greater understanding of the concepts of Geometry. She is patient and well-prepared! Her guidance really helped my daughter on her tests and homework. Thank you Mary Ann, we are looking forward to the next session!
"Best Tutor Ever!"
Kara from San Diego, CA on 5/1/13
I highly recommend Mary Ann to any parent seeking math assistance for their child(ren). What I especially like about Mary Ann is that she is able to explain concepts for my kids in a way that they "get it" and that she is able to reduce or eliminate their math stress. She is a complete professional - always prompt and thorough. Mary Ann has helped my son prep for all his exams and she usually knows what the kids will be working on so they can get a head start. I care that my children understand the concepts /expectations and with Mary Ann's help this is evident in their good performance. Mary Ann has helped us out a couple of times where we were in a pinch with our scheduling too! She is a very nice lady and I can't say enough good things about her. Thank you Mary Ann!
Katie from Poway, CA on 4/26/13
We are SO GLAD we found Mary Ann and that she has been able to fit us in her schedule! With two boys of her own and her math background she is a great fit with our son. Time will tell for his grades at this point but he now seems more relaxed with his math and is happy to get his book out and get ready for Mary Ann's arrival- this is progress for us. She's super patient and seems to really love what she does. A great professional to have in your home!
Thank you WyzAnt!
"Great tutor and very flexible!"
Marilou from Carlsbad, CA on 4/17/13
Mary Ann is great with my son, and he likes working with her so that's a definite plus! She's been great with working with us about time and place. Thank you so much, Mary Ann!
Retta from Encinitas, CA on 12/20/12
We are so thankful for Mary Ann!! She has been able to really help Alexis in areas that she was struggling with in Geometry. Thank you, Mary Ann!!
Sherry from San Diego, CA on 10/3/12
Mary Ann is very patient and incredibly resourceful. My son absolutely loves working with her. She helps him with biology and has made a tremendous impact on his study skills. She recently helped him study for a biology test.
Her method of teaching helped so well that he received a 89.5% on his test! He now has an "A-" in biology. I cannot express enough the improvement we have seen due to her help. Last year in science his average grade resulted in a "C". She has helped him realize that with the right tools he can easily achieve these high grades.
She encourages using several resources to capture the full essence of the topic. She makes it fun and finds several ways to break down the subject. She has taught our son to be an active learning by using other sources then the ones used in class. Ensuring he really understands the subject completely. And, he actually does it!
We are thrilled to work with her!
"Connected immediately "
Evan from Solana Beach, CA on 6/27/12
Mary Ann was prompt and thoughtful in responding, prepared and engaging during our first session. She immediately established rapport with my son and brought him into the process. I look forward to their next session.
Susan from Poway, CA on 5/23/12
Mary Ann was recommended to me by a friend, a friend who's daughter's math improvement was remarkable. Mary Ann explains math in a manner that is easily understood and remembered. My daughter gets ready for the lesson and looks forward to Mary Ann's arrival each week. Now, my daughter is looking forward to working with her during the summer break. All this excitement is from a 6th-grade girl who had previously despised two-year's worth of school math instruction and is repeating her year of pre-algebra. Thankfully, we found Mary Ann a couple of months before the end of school, so my daughter felt much better about her end of year testing! I am so pleased to see my daughter actually understand (and maybe even like!) her math problems and receive better grades. Prior to Mary Ann, I would never have believed anyone who said their child was looking forward to doing math during their summer break, but now it's true. As a parent, I could not ask for more! The bottom-line is that Mary Ann will teach your child math, at whatever level they are, and their grades will improve. You will not be disappointed.
"A tutor who teaches confidence"
Jocelyn from Poway, CA on 1/16/12
MaryAnn has provided our daughter with incredible confidence in math. She is very patient and encouraging. Each session ends with a lot accomplished and we have watched our daughter's grades improve. If you are looking for a gifted tutor, MaryAnn is it.
Rob from Poway, CA on 11/8/11
Mary Ann is knowledgeable and patient. My daughter struggled with geometry but Mary Ann's tutoring has turned her into an A student. My daughter also likes and trusts her. We could not ask for anything more.
Ken & Jean from Escondido, CA on 10/11/11
Our son needed help in Geometry and finding Mary Ann has made all the difference in the world. She immediately got through to him and made everything "click". Her approach and patience has been so successful with our son he even asked for an additional session in preparation for a test - that really says something! We'd recommend Mary Ann to anyone.
"Excellent, well organized, flexible tutor"
Megan from Del Mar, CA on 9/12/11
Mary Ann F. has been extremely helpful in all areas of school for my son. She is proactive in researching the material that he needs help with and helping him stay organized and prepared for his upcoming assignments and tests. I recommend her highly.
"Awesome Tutor... Very Patient"
Jeanne from Poway, CA on 8/3/11
Our son was struggling in 5th grade math. He would "shut down" and give up before he even started. Mary Ann was able to get him through his work and built his confidence with math games. He wasn't always outwardly responsive during the sessions and she was very patient with him and gave him breaks when he needed it. By the end of 5th grade he went from all 2's in math to 3's and a 4 in Geometry! He couldn't have done it without Mary Ann's help.
April from San Diego, CA on 7/19/11
Mary Ann always has a positive attitude toward me that encourages me to take the challenge even when I feel difficult. She is very kind yet strict at the same time so that I feel pressure to learn but never feel nervous with her. She is also very patient and teaches in an organized fashion. I am able to learn a lot in the one and a half hours when Mary Ann comes over to my house. She is an excellent teacher and I strongly recommend her to you.
Glenna from San Diego, CA on 5/25/11
Thank you so much Mary Ann! All the work you have done with the kids has really paid off! Both kids really enjoy their tutoring time with you. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done with them!
"Wonderful tutor! Very accessable by phone/text/e-mail! Very accommodating!"
Kristin from Lakeside, CA on 5/25/11
When we first came to Mary Ann for help, my son was struggling in Geometry. With Mary Ann’s dedication, he is finishing off this semester with a 94! Mary Ann is an organized, patient and understanding tutor, who gives her all to help her students. She comes to our sessions on time, prepared, and encourages her students to do their best. Her dedication goes way beyond the call of duty, as she will help answer questions even on days that we don’t meet. She is cheerful and always has a smile her face even when she’s had a long day. I credit my son’s success to Mary Ann’s hard work, and I am grateful to have had her on our team this year.
