Bio

I enjoy teaching and working with students of all ages. I feel that my tutoring sessions should provide more than support with subject material.
Students will build confidence in their learning as well as a greater desire to excel when working with me.

I enjoy teaching and working with students of all ages. I feel that my tutoring sessions should provide more than support with subject material.
Students will build confidence in their learning as well as a greater desire to excel when working with me. I have many years of experience teaching in public and private schools as well as working with students individually. I enjoy students of all backgrounds and nationalities. While living in Ohio I encouraged many students who were learning English as a second language. I found that experience to be very rewarding. I am a teacher who enjoys learning from her students as well.
My sessions are interactive and not the traditional focus on learning from a textbook or worksheets. My love of learning and teaching has benefited many students.

I have been assisting students in grades 4-7 in both public and private schools in the area. Many students find that writing and being able to express themselves both creatively, as well as using correct grammar, is truly a challenge. I have developed some principles and lessons which can be individualized, which I implement in their Common Core Curriculum. Common Core standards are innovative, however the initiative has not allowed for continuity in instruction. As a professional, I feel that students learn best while practicing reading, writing, and comprehension skills. Teaching is Learning, and I discover that many of my students benefit from my creative, meaningful, and fun learning sessions. A guided learning experience with Common Core Standards as the "bar", can be a fulfilling experience!!!!

Vincent, 1 lesson with Mary Lee

Awesome!

Hi there! I just wanted to share our awesome experience with our tutor Mary Lee with you. She is so sweet & professional. This is our first time having a tutor for our son & he has really benefited from the session he has had with Mary Lee. She is dedicated, on time, and flexible with her schedule and ours.

Kelly, 1 lesson with Mary Lee

Very experienced and patient!

Mary Lee has been tutoring my son on SAT reading/writing for 2 months. We are very pleased with the progress. Mary Lee first made a plan with my son based on the SAT test time and my son's school/activity schedule. My son does practice before and during the tutoring sessions. Mary Lee gives helpful guides and tips. His scores in both areas are significantly increased. Mary Lee is very flexible in accommodating my son's busy schedule, and is great in motivating him to do a lot of practice! I highly recommend Mary Lee.
