About Mary

Dear Future Students and Parents,

I am passionate about the arts and what it can do to impact young lives! I believe all students have the right to a quality education in which they are challenged to achieve their maximum potential. I believe each child must empower their lives by taking responsibility for their own learning. If they can invest in themselves, and believe that they can learn anything then their only limitation is their imagination. I am here to promote this process and reinforce their learning every step of the way.

I have worked with students in grades 6 through high school grade levels. My approach to tutoring is to structure each session in a way that keeps the student challenged and engaged in the creative process. During each session students will be working towards something he or she wants to learn. I assign extensions that apply to the developmental skills involved in order to proceed to the next session with each student. Student will receive a plan based on their individual skill and will be adapted as growth is achieved in different areas.

I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts from San Jose State University and am due to graduate with my Single Subject Credential in Secondary Art Education in June 2015. I have an extensive background working with traditional mediums such as oil and acrylic paints, watercolor, charcoal, pencil, and pastels. Some of the relevant course work that I have studied are Advanced Painting, Advanced Drawing, Figure Painting, Watercolor, Figure Drawing, and Expressive Drawing at the University level.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.

To ensure that students have comfortable working space in which to explore their creativity and skill, I prefer to arrange a meeting in the student's residence. I am happy to travel within 20 miles of the Mountain View area.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your art exploration.

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.
