About Mary

Having trouble with math? Need help writing your college application essay? Whether you're a parent of a younger student or a student yourself, I can help you! I love science, math, history, writing, pretty much all of it. From kindergarten to high school, and even into some college subjects, I will help you through the tough academic times.

I am a college graduate with two degrees in biology from Humboldt State University (zoology- the study of animals- and microbiology- the study of microbes, like bacteria). I have been tutoring for about 10 years now, since I was a freshman in high school. I have tutored students of a wide range of ages- kindergarten to high school being my strongest suit.

My method:

-Find a quiet space for us to focus.
-Recognize your strengths and weaknesses.
-Work on those weakness, while utilizing your strengths.

I'm a tough love kind of tutor. I'm putting in the effort to help you, so I hope you'll put in the effort to learn. I promise to make the learning exciting and different. There are lots of different ways to learn, and I know not everyone is the same. I promise lots of laughter and maybe even a 2-minute dance party break to reduce stress and to clear the mind.

Learning should be fun. It's my job to help you realize that.

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.

General Music

My mother is a music teacher, and I have been studying music for the majority of my life. I am an upright bassist and a percussionist. I read both treble and bass clef. I have taken part in many ensembles, and I have successfully completed many collegiate music courses.

Zoology

I have a Bachelor's degree in Zoology. I have successfully completed courses in introductory zoology, comparative vertebrate anatomy, invertebrate zoology, mammalogy, and animal physiology. I have also completed many biology courses.
