About Mary

I am a recent graduate of the University of Mobile. I have spent four years studying English and Sociology. Education, specifically writing, is one of the most important parts of a persons life. I was a tutor at the University of Mobile for a full-academic year. I assisted students in editing their papers, generating ideas, and correcting grammar. I also helped ESL students transitioning into a new language and culture. The position of a tutor is one of the most rewarding jobs a person can hold. Not only do I get to take part in one of my favorite disciplines, but I also get to help people understand it. This is why I am passionate about tutoring English and strive to become better at it through every experience.

Tutoring is one of my passions. I am a very driven student myself and my mission is to help others see how enjoyable learning and producing good work can be. I have experience in tutoring, and my experience as a camp counselor has helped me become a good motivator, especially to younger students and students who are my age.

I am excited to hear from you and would love to talk more with you about how I would be a good candidate for the position you have available.

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.

Grammar

As a tutor for my University, I spent every day editing students papers, primarily checking for and explaining grammar mistakes. Currently, I work as an ESL instructor, a job which demands an expert-level understanding of the English language. In addition to my professional experience, I have also studied grammar for pleasure and for school for my entire educational career.

Literature

After nurturing a passion for the subject my entire life, I decided to pursue this degree in order to refine my skills and understanding of this vital artform. While at University, I was a part of the Honors Program as a member of the Honor's Council, and continually helped my fellow classmates understand the texts we were working with. I was also president of my Universities branch Sigma Tau Delta, the national English Honor's society. I put my literature skills to good use in my University's Learning and Writing Center where I helped students with a number of subjects, one of which was the analysis of Literature.
