Tulane University (Architecture)
Tulane University (Master's)
I am a recent graduate from Tulane University with my Master's in Architecture, and I love to learn and help others learn! My architectural education has given me a solid base in a wide range of subjects. I have a knack for numbers, and could help with anything from elementary up to junior high math. I am also a computer whiz, especially with Adobe Creative Suites (Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign) as well as general computer skills. I use several advanced computer programs in my work every day. I also have a creative side, and can offer assistance in reading and writing, literature, art, or design.
Overall, I am a passionate, lifetime learner, and love sharing my knowledge with others. While in school I became the go-to person for help with design issues and help with computer programs, and acted as a tutor for my friends and classmates. I have also worked in programs teaching children about architecture. I love seeing other people share the joy of learning and watching the light bulb come on when a concept finally clicks with them. I am patient and self-motivated, and will do everything I can to accomplish my goals. In this case, my goal is helping you or your child learn!

Mary is flexible, informative and friendly ! That is what most people are looking for in a tutor. She has helped me alot and I appreciate her patience. I look forward to working with Mary until I feel comfortable with Autocad.
Mary-Beth was very patient. My confidence level just increased. I found her instructional system, user friendly, clear and concise. I feel confident that I can use these instructions effectively going forward.
Mary-Beth is a patient, thorough tutor who puts you at easy while learning. Today was my third tutoring session with her and we got everything I wanted to cover done. She simplified my workbook by a 100! I highly recommend her! Another plus is her quick response time to emails.
Great tutor and nice to spend time with-I learned what I set out to achieve in 4 sessions with follow up as needed.
Mary-Beth has a very calming demeanor and is very patient. She listens carefully to what you are trying to achieve and will find shortcuts and options to use the tools effectively. She is very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that you understand clearly.
We discussed tools to help me use Rhino more easily and efficiently. I am confident in Mary-Beth's ability to guide me through the many avenues of the program.
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.
Part of my education in my Master's of Architecture program revolved around digital media and presentation. I have 5 years of experience with Adobe InDesign. I use this program to create presentation layouts as well as booklets, portfolios, slideshows, and more.
I have my Master's degree in architecture from Tulane University. I have taken around a hundred credit hours relating to architecture in courses covering all aspects of architecture. Areas studied included history, theory, philosophy, design, technical systems, building information modeling, digital media, digital fabrication, design-build, and more.
I have used AutoCAD for almost 6 years in an architectural setting. As an architect in training I use the software daily in the design of floor plans, sections, and elevations of buildings. I am highly proficient in the program and can help people learn to use it easily and efficiently.
