About Mary

Greetings!

My name is Mary Ellen and I'm an Arizona certified teacher. I currently have 7 years of teaching experience with various ages and abilities. I am currently teaching 2nd grade and have previously taught 4th and 6th grade. I am a graduate of Arizona State University where I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary education with an emphasis on ESL. I also am a graduate of Texas A&M were I completed my Masters degree in reading.

I believe all children are capable of success but as a teacher we have to find the avenues in which to guide a student.

As a struggling math student in school and through becoming a teacher, I can see both views. Due to my struggles I believe I have a better understanding of how to approach math in creative ways in which all learners can understand. Hands on and interactive is a motto I use in math. One must be engaged in the learning to fully understand math and students must be provided with multiple avenues to a solution and not just a one way approach.

I obtained my masters degree in reading and my varied teaching background has helped me to see how aa reader navigates from learning to read to reading to learn. As a reader students purpose for reading changes based on their agar and abilities. I believe we have to keeps motivated and up to date on current research in reading and implement that into instruction. Students need to be able to read but also understand their reading. My approach is both, we have to provide the reader what they need based on their needs.

If you want a tutor who thinks out side the box, can relate to the learner and will pose lessons in creative ways contact me to schedule a tutoring session.
