My name is Mary and I have been a writing consultant and private tutor for over two years. My many students have come from different backgrounds with different learning styles, but I make sure that each session is tailored to the student's needs. At the City College of New York, I served as a writing consultant, covering academic writing on various academic disciplines. Many of my students were international and had trouble understanding the material or expressing themselves correctly. We worked together to review grammar, practice English through conversation, and find readings that would be helpful in improving their language skills. I also led grammar workshops for students who were not doing well in their grammar class. We went over rules and usages of grammar and all my students improved their scores in the next exam. After working in City College, I became a private in-home tutor. One of my students has a learning disability and so I customize our sessions to introduce study methods that will engage the student and facilitate the learning process. I find myself to be a friendly and patient tutor with a passion for learning and helping others improve. I do not like to lecture at my students but keep them engaged through visual aids, fun exercises, and conversation. My professional goals are to help students develop critical skills that will enable them to pursue more opportunities in the future.
