About Mary

I have been a teacher all my life—whether in a classroom, informally, or as a volunteer. My favorite part has been one-on-one learning. I love helping students find their way to grasping and applying seemingly difficult concepts and especially improving their use of vocabulary, language and communication skills. I believe that a student’s dedication and persistence together with a teacher’s feedback and guidance can lead to a deeper understanding and permanent mastery of new material, which is most necessary for advancing to higher levels of learning.

My academic background in languages, literature and writing has helped me to work with students wanting to improve their skills in English, German, and French, various subjects in the humanities, as well as in researching, writing, and editing essays, reports and term papers.
In addition to English, my diverse language training (German, French, and Russian) has made me sensitive to the frequent need to present familiar material in a new way or to identify and work around obstacles to proper usage caused by the unique grammar of one’s first language.

My time is somewhat flexible, but I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Make-up classes can be re-scheduled.

I generally meet students at my home, but we can select another location if it is free from distractions and within a reasonable travel radius.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the achievement of your educational goals.
