About Mary

I've been a public school teacher for more than 20 years. I have a passion for helping people of all ages learn and feel confident about their skills, and I really enjoy the personalized aspect of tutoring. Seeing someone make progress quickly, and enjoy learning, is one of the greatest things about being a teacher/tutor.

I have experience with students of all skill and knowledge levels, as well as a deep knowledge of the educational research related to my subject areas.

I have a California ESL credential, and I've spent most of my career working with language learners.

I have a valid California Spanish credential. I believe in the communicative approach to language learning, and focus on using language for real purposes. Grammar has it's place, but it's not my main focus. I think when students have fun with the language, they learn more quickly and retain what they learn. I have raised my son to be bilingual, and we still speak Spanish at home.

History has always been my absolute favorite subject! What happened in the past influences our modern world, and I enjoy helping students see those connections.

If you are struggling, I'd love to help you. I'm available after about 4pm, and on weekends. Please contact me so we can get started!

Approved subjects
