About Mary

I find that tying real-world applications into mathematical concepts is of lasting use to students. With six papers written and presented at international conferences, and two of them re-written for non-math audiences, I have an excellent grasp of how to give folks the connections between concept and application.

I have taught mostly adults, but did tutor at the high school level. I was chosen to help students pass the high school proficiency exam.

With needle arts I have over 40 years experience in knitting, sewing, quilting, weaving, beading, cross stitch and embroidery with original design and pattern making in all of the above.

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.

Sewing

I have been sewing for more than 30 years, and have made or mended everything except hot air balloons and spacesuits. My work has been published in professional journals. I have done prototyping, a design from drawing to finished product with written directions.
