About Mary

I am an experienced tutor. I have tutored others since I was in High School where I was the head of the tutoring club. I home schooled my son through High School and he received a composite of 30 on his ACT tests. I have tutored for the SAT with a charity in Sanford. I love helping students succeed! A good Act or SAT score will help you get into the college you desire. I am also an experienced proofreader and helped my mentor get A's on her Masters and Doctoral papers. I have business experience as well. I had a desktop publishing business and helped write several award winning newsletters. Some of my clients were The Christian Writer's Association, Charisma Media, a Moose lodge and The Florida Polygraph Association. Currently, I own a Christian Bookstore and Library.

Other teaching experience is in the church setting. I have taught every age group. While I am not a certified public school teacher, I am a Certified Instructor for Streams Ministries. Additionally, I am a certified TESOL teacher. My favorite subject is English, but I can help with other subjects like History, Science and Math. I have a high IQ and love a challenge. I guess that is why I enjoyed homeschooling my son so much! I created many of the lessons and we had a lot of fun learning. I would love to help you learn as well. My teaching approach is to first learn my student's learning style, then to create a custom lesson plan that best suits that style of learning.

An outstanding tutor is qualified, experienced, has a great personality and loves teaching. I am qualified with diplomas in several different areas including TESOL. My first degree was in Computer Operations with an emphasis on Business English. I am also a Reverend Doctor through World Christianship Ministries. I have experience through many years of tutoring and teaching as well as in the business world. I have a great personality as evidenced through my success in entrepreneurship. Most importantly, I love teaching. My favorite subjects to teach are the Bible and English.

I would love to help you in your studies. Any topic that is Bible related or within the area of English, I would love to hear from you right away. My schedule is flexible, so contact me and let's get started today!

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Reverend with an Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree. I have taught in churches since High School and
currently teach classes in my home. I am a Certified Instructor with Streams Ministries for the Art of Hearing God Course. This course is a college level course written by John Paul Jackson.

Elementary (K-6th)

During my school years, I was in the gifted program and graduated from High School in the top 40 of a class of 500+ students. During my school career, I tutored other students and was a leader in many areas, including the tutoring club. I was a teacher's assistant beginning in 2nd grade and continued working with teachers through High School. Additionally, I home schooled my own son through 12th grade. He completed core subjects through 8th grade level by the end of 6th grade. His SAT scores were 99 across the board. When he graduated High School, he had a composite score of 30 on his ACT tests. I am well educated in several subjects through Vocational training, college courses and home study as well as online educational courses. These Diplomas and Certifications include Computers, Business, English, Counseling, Accounting and a Doctor of Divinity. My educational background as well as my experience in teaching my own son successfully, shows that you can trust me to tutor your child in elementary subjects. Additionally, I have worked with younger children over 30 years. I know that every child is different and will endeavor to understand each student as the individual that they are. I will develop lessons and teaching methods to fit with each child's personality, interests and learning style. I think learning should be fun and would love to help your child develop a love of learning, too. Contact me today to schedule your child's first lesson and let's see how much fun we can have learning.

ESL/ESOL

I am a Certified TESOL Teacher. I obtained my certification from Global Leadership College in 2013. I have found that picture association helps with memory retention as well as understanding; therefore, my teaching style will include Laubach teaching methods in conjunction with grammar and vocabulary. Additionally, I will determine your learning style and personality and create lessons and activities to match your specific needs. This will make learning fun and easy for you! If you agree, contact me today to schedule your first lesson.

Handwriting

Any good English teacher should be able to teach someone how to write. I am qualified to teach English subjects. English and all related subjects are my passion. I have helped neighborhood kids and Sunday school students with their writing skills. I would love to help your child learn to write as well.

Phonics

I grew up when Phonics was a big method of teaching people how to read through the Hooked On Phonics program. I used this method to teach my own son how to read. Phonics uses the sounds that letters and letter combinations make. Once someone understands how letters and letter combinations sound, they can use this knowledge to read. I was also certified as a Laubach teacher in the early 1990's and helped adults learn to read. Laubach uses pictures to associate letter sounds and incorporates elements of Phonics. I would be happy to help you or your loved one to read using these methods.

Study Skills

Good study skills are building blocks of success. I obtain A's in most graded subjects I study. Without good study skills, it is difficult to do well in school. I graduated with High Honors from High School and have received several Diplomas and Certifications, including a Doctor of Divinity degree. This shows that I have good study skills. I have taught my son good study habits which he employed to get good grades in High School. I have also taught my church students (of all ages) study skills to help them get more out of their Bible Studies. One good study habit I teach is to take a large assignment and break it up into small, easily obtainable daily goals. As each small goal is focused on and completed, the whole assignment is soon finished. My motto is: Take care of things one step at a time and the journey will take care of itself. If one doesn't intuitively have these skills, then finding someone who can teach them good study habits is imperative for success. Once I have determined the exact goal of a student, together we will create a working study plan that fits their personality and time schedule to help them reach that intended goal successfully.
