About Mary

I have a very long teaching career and have tutored many, many children (from grade 1 to high school). Math remediation is my specialty. I like to incorporate as many visual aids and manipulatives into my lessons as possible. I am a very patient and caring teacher, who has the ability to diagnosis where in the process or skill the student is breaking down. Both student and parent are happy with their math performance and the tutoring services I provide.

I have a Masters Degree in Special Education and have taught for 30 years. I am retired now and have time to devote to the profession I truly love... teaching, tutoring and children. References are available upon request. I'm a certified teacher with DMV and fingerprint check in the state of Colorado.

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.

Algebra 1

I have had success in getting students to pass their algebra coursework. I specialize in teaching pre-skills needed to be successful on their tests and quizzes. A master's degree is one of my accomplishments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher with more than 30 years' experience. My Master's Degrees are in Mathematics and Special Education. I am currently substitute teaching in the many various schools in Grand Junction, which I enjoy very much. I am very patient with my students and can pinpoint where the students are having difficulty in their subjects. I have many resources to share and teach my students to ensure they will do well in their subjects. Obviously, math is my favorite subject. I can almost promise positive results and improved grades. I have tutored hundreds of student from grade 1 to college during my career.

My experience and expertise also includes over 10 years in summer school programs in the Deer Park School District. My Bachelors Degree was awarded from Utah State University in 1973 in Special Education. I achieved my Master's Degree in Special Education and Mathematics from Hofstra University, New York in 1981. My private tutoring business in New York expanded for over 15 years. References available upon request.
