About Mara

A love of knowledge and learning keeps me excited to teach. After completing two Bachelor's of Arts degrees in political science and fine art I've learned the importance of discipline and attention to detail. I love that tutoring allows me to pass along information I've been fortunate enough to learn after years of wonderful schooling.

I specialize in tutoring English, writing, and proofreading for all grade levels, as well as both analog and digital photography. After I meet with a student I am able to assess the level of the student and ascertain the best lesson plan. I will also normally assign homework when fitting, and of course, evaluate all assignments I give. I am normally available for tutoring Monday - Thursday from 3pm - 8pm. I charge $45/hour for online sessions and $60/hour for in-person sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

One of the most important things in life is the ability to communicate ideas eloquently and succinctly. A deep appreciation of the English language makes me a great English, proofreading, and writing tutor. I have experience helping students improve their writing levels for various subject matters including writing for the arts as well as social sciences. The majority of my experience has been with high school and college level students; however, I have years of experience in leadership positions with young children (I was a gymnastics coach for 6 years) and am confident of my ability to help students of all ages.

I have a degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in photography and have also worked for the past 3 years as a professional photographer. I've developed a comprehensive knowledge of traditional photography as well as the contemporary commercial application of the art that I am excited to share with you. I will help you understand the variety of ways in which you can use both film and digital cameras manually. I will also help you develop your own visual ideas as well as provide references for other photographers work which I think may be inspiring to you.

Please feel free to contact me for any questions you have. I look forward to helping you learn!
