Hello, My name is Mary. I am a retired teacher., I have a B.S.Ed. and an M.A. in Education for young children. I also have 12 credits in Teaching English as a Second Language from the American University in Cairo, Egypt. I have taught Kindergarten and Nursery School in New York, England, and Morocco. I have also taught English as a Second Language at the American University and for Montgomery County Public Schools.

I owned a book business which specialized in materials for teaching and learning foreign languages. At the same time, I ran my own tutoring business for English as a Foreign Language.

I worked in daycare centers for 16 years, but now I am interested in getting back into doing private tutoring because I think there is so much that can be accomplished with individuals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.S. and an M.A. in Education for young children. I taught Kindergarten and Nursery School in New York, England, and Morocco. I have also taught English as a Second Language to students of all ages and Nationalities.

English

Although my main subject is English as a Second Language, I am well versed in English vocabulary, grammar, reading, and spelling at all levels. I have also had experience preparing students for tests.

ESL/ESOL

I am very much interested in teaching English as a Second Language because I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and nationalities.

I was trained at the American University in Cairo, Egypt where I got 12 credits in TESOL. I also taught there.

I also taught ESL in Montgomery County Public Schools Adult Education and American University, Washington, DC.

Grammar

I am a teacher of English as a Second Language. In this capacity, I have had to teach a lot of grammar.English grammar is especially difficult for people who speak other languages because they often have to unlearn grammar rules from their own language. I can say that I am very experienced at teaching English grammar. If the student is in school, I will try to work with his English teacher in order to achieve the best result.

Hard Of Hearing

Hello, I am hard of hearing myself. I do not know American Sign Language, but I speak very clearly, and I have a lot of patience.

I am interested in working with people who are hard of hearing.

Reading

I am very interested in reading, especially reading comprehension. I have taught English as a Second Language, but much of my work has included helping children with reading especially reading comprehension. Many children read without understanding, and this is what I work on.

SAT Reading

Hello, I am experienced in tutoring students of all ages and nationalities in test preparation, especially reading. I try to find materials which are interesting for them and ask them questions about the subjects. I believe that reading comprehension is very important. Thank you

Special Needs

For almost 10 years I did volunteer work with a special needs young woman. She was physically handicapped and mentally challenged. I took her on day trips. We also went to events such as the circus, cultural events, and movies.
Working with her required a great deal of patience and understanding. I was also employed to work with her for 1 1/2 years.

I believe that I am well suited to work with special needs people.

TOEFL

My specialty is English as a Second Language and I am well versed in all areas needed for taking the TOEFL test. I once taught a course for students who were preparing for that test.

Vocabulary

I have extensive experience with vocabulary. I do a lot of reading and I have an M.A. in Education. I also play vocabulary games on the computer.

Writing

I am a teacher of English as a Second Language. I am also experienced in essay writing and grammar and I am interested in teaching these subjects. Thank you.
