About Mariah

About me:
I am now in my 5th year of tutoring! Every year has been completely different, and I'm still looking forward to what comes next. I began tutoring out of a need to do work that I am passionate about, and that interests me. Accessible and fair education will always be extremely important to me. This year has been different because I made the crazy decision to go back to school. I am studying geology and math, and I really enjoy being back in school.

K-8th Get Ahead Programs:
Individualized programs that I design to give advanced students a challenge outside of school. Students can expect to stay on top of what they are learning in class, and learn material one or two grade levels higher.

Algebra:
I love math and it's always great for me when I get math to "click" for students who could not understand the concepts from any other source. I wasn't always good at math, and struggled with it when I was in high school. Because of that, I understand why others don't understand certain concepts. Being able to relate to my students difficulties is what helps me to be a good tutor.

Writing: My main focus is formal and academic writing. I help students with academic essays, personal statements for college applications, cover letters, professional essays, etc. In addition to writing content, I also do editing work.

***Before tutoring can begin (or phone numbers can be exchanged), WyzAnt requires that students have a valid credit card or Paypal account on file. No charges will occur until after the lesson takes place and I enter the hours to be billed and the student confirms the lesson details.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I look forward to working with you,
Mariah

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. 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

In my years in elementary school, I was in the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program. I excelled in all subjects and even got an early start as a tutor being a reading buddy for kindergarteners! I have passed the certification tests for Elementary Math, Spelling, Vocabulary, Reading, Grammar, Writing, and Algebra 1.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with many ESL students since I first began my college education. The students that I worked with have all been Spanish speakers, and of all different ages. My biggest strategy for helping students to improve their English skills involves having them speak, read, and write in English whenever possible. The less you speak in the language you already know, the better and quicker you will be at learning a foreign one. I do use current textbooks and learning worksheets with my students. I don't emphasize speaking over reading, writing, and listening as they are all equally important in language learning. I work with students who begin not being able to speak any English at all as well as students who already have some English skills.
