I have an extensive background in education and tutoring students. I have been a tutor and supervisor for several Sylvan Learning Centers and have tutored students from grade school through college. I also specialize with children who have Special Needs. I use a variety of tutoring methods to individualize the learning experience as many students learn in a variety of ways. I am outgoing, get along well with children of all ages, am very thorough in making sure that my students understand not only the subjects they are learning but what the teacher is looking for in assignments, and will do everything possible to make your child succeed.
I have worked with ABA programs throughout NYC Department of Education, privately run ABA programs in Massachusetts. My training includes writing and implementing ABA, assessing student progress during the program, and writing up all material needed. I have worked with Autistic students since 1997.
I have worked with all levels of Autistic Spectrum Disorder during my 17 years with the NYC Department of Education. I worked on everything from ABA, writing and implementing Functional Behavior Programs, to helping Autistic students learn to read body language and how to communicate with others.
As a licensed counselor, I have worked with students who are deciding career choices. I also guest lectured for Career Counseling Courses in several New York Colleges using the book and material from What Color is Your Parachute.
As a licensed counselor, I have spent many years helping my juniors and seniors with making college choices, applying to colleges, and writing and editing their essays.

Excellent Tutor — Mary was wonderful! She is kind, patient, caring and knowledgeable. My daughter really enjoyed working with her as she prepared for the English/Reading portions of the SAT/ACT.
