All of Mara’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Mara’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT English

The English section of the ACT was my highest score when I took the exam in high school. I am also an English major in college and have scored 5s in both the Language and Composition AP English exams.

Adobe InDesign

I have used InDesign for the production of my high school newspaper as well at a literary magazine. Both publications were award-winning publications in the NSPA. I am well versed in the various tools that one can use in it and have experience tutoring others to utilize it (I taught my reporters and other staff members).

Adobe Photoshop

I worked in high school newspapers and literary magazines for four years, which entailed a lot of Photoshop use. I have also taught others, such as my reporters and other staff members, how to utilize the program (even facilitated a summer day camp dedicated to the use of Photoshop and InDesign). Though my training for Photoshop has been more for journalistic purposes, I am familiar with the more creative and 'fun' uses of the program as well.

American History

I was a 2010 Illinois State History Fair finalist for my project about the American Playground Movement as well as an honors US History student. I have taken many years of American history classes outside of that and have even taken related courses in college such as American Literature (with a heavy American history component).

Anatomy

As a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, I have taken many college courses that involve anatomy such as Speech Science, Neuroscience, Hearing Science, and much more. While I am familiar with most of the muscles, bones, and nerves in the body, my expertise would be anatomy that involves speech production, cognition (the brain), and vestibulocochlear functions.

Anthropology

I have taken two college courses on anthropology, one based on cultural anthropology and the other based on a more biological study, and helped my peers through the subject. I have also taken other related courses including sociology and psychology.

Aspergers

I am a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, so I have studied much about the various Autism spectrum/Autism-related syndromes. I also have a brother who has Aspergers, so I am very experienced in working with children and young adults who have it.

Bible Studies

I took Catholic religion classes in a Catholic school for 14 years, on of which included a year of Theology. I am also well-versed in the views of the Bible not just from a Catholic standpoint or even a Christian one, but as well as from other religious denominations. I have helped to facilitate religious discussions among peers as well.

European History

I was an AP European History student in high school and received a 5 on my AP Euro exam. I am an English major with a focus on British/Euro-centric literature and that involves analysis of pieces, including the context of the time period that it was written.

Special Needs

I am a Communication Sciences and Disorders major, so much of my coursework involves children with special needs, especially those with language, speech, or hearing disabilities. I am well versed with the natures of many disorders as well as the assessments and interventions for them. In addition to that, I have experience in my own family with children with special needs as my brother has an ASD.
