About Mary

I strive to make learning fun and productive. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring math and science, especially elementary and middle school students. I have many hands-on math activities, worksheets and math games to help students learn concepts and then improve their speed. I can provide many hands-on activities to understand physical science concepts, then teach students how to accomplish the accompanying math problems.
I have developed a large math website that is free to users. It has thousands of problems for students to practice hundreds of topics in elementary and middle school math, algebra and into geometry.

I am certified to teach both math and science in 7th - 12th grades. The sciences I have taught include earth science, physical science, chemistry and physics. The math classes I have taught include all middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra and geometry. I have coached for the Science Olympiad, Science Fair and the middle school math competition, MathCounts, and have had several students qualify for state level. I have also had the enjoyment of providing math tutoring and math enrichment at a local elementary school for several years.

I look forward to helping students in expanding their understanding of math and/or science.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

I am certified to teach math and science in grades 7 through 12 and have several years of teaching experience. I have provided tutoring and have coached for math and science competitions.

Elementary Math

I have volunteered at a local elementary school for 12 years. I have provided tutoring, been a guest speaker and after-school enrichment classes for kindergarten through fifth grade.

GED

I have over 20 years of teaching and tutoring math and science. I also developed a volunteer math tutoring program at an elementary school, then coordinated it and was a tutor for the school for 4 years. I have coached for math and science competitions as well as for computerized trivia contests for several years. I was employed as a tutor by D11, for 4 years, for students who were homebound due to a medical issue or because they were suspended for the remainder of the semester. As a tutor for the homebound I tutored their math, science, English and history. I consider myself very capable to tutor for the GED test.
