About Mary

Hi, my name is Mary and I have taught for over 10 years at the elementary level. I recently received my MA through Lewis University in reading and literacy. My passion is reading!

As for being a tutor, a tutored students from pre-kindergarten to age 12 for 5+ years in reading, vocabulary, phonics, and writing at a local agency.

You may be asking, “What can she do for my child?” Since I am a reading specialist, I can determine your child’s independent and instructional reading levels. With that information, I will be able to design personalized reading and writing tutoring sessions for your child. Given that reading and writing skills develop simultaneously, we will focus on writing as well. In addition, I will incorporate various reading comprehensions strategies, such as text connections, questioning, visualizing, and determining importance, to help your child understand what he/she is reading and delve further into the text.

My hope is that your child will begin to enjoy reading and find that it can be fun, too.

Regards,
Mary

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th) because I taught grades K-6th for over 10+ years. In addition, I have been a substitute teacher for the last 2 years in grades K-6th in my children's school district. Also I obtained my BA in special education focusing on individual learning styles and disabilities, and received my MA in Reading and Literacy focusing on primary, intermediate, and middle grades. Prior to subbing, I tutored for three years at a private school working with students in K-6th on different subjects (English,reading comprehension, phonics, grammar, and math). Based on my experience and educational background, I am qualified to tutor Elementary subjects.

Reading

I am a Certified Reading Specialist, with experience at the primary level.
