About Mary

I enjoy figuring out how students learn and seeing them empowered with new understanding. I am a lifelong learner myself, and I like to help children-and older- reach their full potential. In public schools I have taught classroom general music as well as small group special education classes of students with learning disabilities. I have also taught private lessons in many different settings including English as a second language, German, piano, and woodwind lessons. Yes, I have a lifetime habit of learning and I have always enjoyed teaching others new skills. All of my teaching shows my creative side-music, art, and writing- which I like to apply to my teaching.

Sometimes students need an individualized approach and a few special strategies outside of the classroom to pick up their academic skills. I am not sold on any one teaching method, but I constantly evaluate the student's skill level, special interests, and learning style while working with him or her. All students need to feel successful in school and love learning, so I strive to provide the extra help to inspire them to excellent work.

The two master's degrees which I have completed were writing and reading intensive at a demanding level. My MA in Biblical Studies from Denver Seminary required the writing of a 140 page thesis. I have two published books: "Bold Girls of the Bible" and "The New Perspective on Mary and Martha," both published by Wipf & Stock in Eugene, OR. (Cannot italicize the titles!) All of this writing was accomplished with the constant input of professors and editors from which I learned to write at a professional level.

Contact me for extra school help if you live in the Lowry or Hilltop area. I will first meet you at the Schlessman library or across Quebec in the coffee shop. Piano lessons would be at my house, or perhaps your house if it is close.

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your learning concerns.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a Master's in Biblical Studies New Testament from Denver Theological Seminary 2012. This includes six semesters of Koine Greek, the language of the NT. I would be glad to teach Biblical Greek through the intermediate level to anyone who wishes to understand the Bible more thoroughly.

German

I really enjoy teaching beginning and intermediate students German. I do not speak like a native, but I certainly know the obstacles from an English-speaking point of view. I have a BA in German and seven years of experience living in Germany.

Piano

I have played piano since childhood, taking lessons many years including at the college level as part of my Music Education degree from the University of Kansas. I have taught piano lessons from my home, usually starting beginners and taking them through to late intermediate level. I am glad to choose music according to their interests that is fun and keeps them practicing.
