Mary Kate has a wonderful connection with our son and has had a great impact with improving his writing skills. She is able teach him while keeping it fun and interesting. She also has a knack of being able to critique his work in a positive way that encourages him to improve rather than making him feel defensive or negative about his ideas. She has encouraged him to be creative while helping him format his writing in a more logical, understandable fashion. Probably the best part is that she has helped him realize that writing is a form of communication that is both important and fun.
Mary Kate is an exceptional tutor! She has helped our son with English 3 and has made a tremendous impact on his writing in the short time they have worked together. She was able to connect with him and keep him engaged - not an easy task with an active 16 year old. Our son enjoys working with Mary Kate and often refers to her as "Genius!" We will continue to work with Mary Kate and hope to include SAT/ACT prep. work in the near future. Very qualified and always on time. We are very fortunate to have found such a wonderful tutor.
Mary Kate helped my daughter complete her college essay in just 2 sessions. Mary Kate came prepared and ready to work. She possesses extensive knowledge of the college essay and application process. My daughter was struggling to get the essay just right, and with Mary Kate's expert guidance, she was able to quickly achieve her goals! I would encourage anyone whose child needs assistance with anything related to English and writing to hire Mary Kate. I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to all my friends!
Mary Kate was awesome. Really helped my daughter get a start on her college essay and gave her invaluable tools. Got her thinking in the right direction. The college admission essay is extremely important and we were stressing out about it. Mary Kate helped alleviate all the fears!

I get so upset when I try to write anything, but with Mary Kate's patient teaching style, she calmed me down and we got an essay out in 2 hours.
Thanks Mary Kate!
Mary Kate is a very patient and creative tutor. From the start, my son (who is a reluctant writer) felt comfortable and found her style of teaching relaxing and engaging. She is very encouraging and makes writing fun. He especially liked typing his assignments on her laptop. Mary Kate is extremely knowledgeable in the subject area, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help. If the need arises, we will definitely request her services again. Thanks for a great experience!
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.
I grew up as a younger sister to a brother with dyslexia, and I was able to see him find some success through tutoring. As a high school teacher, I worked one on one after school with many students from my special education class -- students that needed extra time, tailored to their particular learning disabilities. I am confident that I can help tailor a learning plan for students with dyslexia; I have worked with a college student most recently, and she's found much success in "writing verbally" or recording her work before putting it all together in a paper. It has been a great experience to see how different approaches to dyslexia can work for different students.
Since I was an 8th grader, I have been working with students who are in elementary school. Although I worked as a high school teacher in NYC, my first job was working with students in 5th through 8th grade, and I think elementary students are more open to learning and improving than any other group of students! I have a lot of experience with students at the elementary level, as I am an aunt to 8 nieces and nephews. Helping them has been a great joy for me. I hope I can help you too.
Homework and projects can be hard, but I can help you to accomplish work. In addition to that, I can work with students on reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, elementary math, and all the K through 6th subjects. Elementary students need special attention and specific instruction, and I can provide that for them.
When a student asks for help with a college admissions essay, I get excited for what will happen next. Writing that important essay is one of my most favorite things on which to work with students. Composing that essay is a unique, personal process for each student, and it's a specialty of mine to get an essay from an initial brainstorm to a final, fantastic product.
In addition to college essays, I have a background in journalism as well as in teaching writing from grades 5 through 8. I also worked as a writing center tutor at my university, and I can help on almost any writing project at any point in the process.
