Bio

Tutoring and helping others is so fulfilling for me, that I make every effort to offer a comfortable learning environment for my learners. As a professor at a local state college for the past ten years, I have taught English as a Second Language and tutored both adults and children in many subjects. (Many of my students asked me to tutor their children.) I now have my state clearances for the state of Florida and tutor elementary children for the school district.

Tutoring and helping others is so fulfilling for me, that I make every effort to offer a comfortable learning environment for my learners. As a professor at a local state college for the past ten years, I have taught English as a Second Language and tutored both adults and children in many subjects. (Many of my students asked me to tutor their children.) I now have my state clearances for the state of Florida and tutor elementary children for the school district.

Having lived in Mexico for a year, I am bilingual in Spanish. In addition to teaching English and Spanish via grammar, reading, writing, pronunciation, and accent-reduction, I have also tutored in math, science projects and for standardized tests, such as the CASAS, TABE, GED, SAT and TOEFL. Besides teaching, I facilitated students in their career development and counseled them in résumé preparation.

With an MBA and ten year's experience in corporate accounting, I can also tutor in business courses such as accounting and management, in addition to math and Microsoft Professional Office 2007 (MS-Certified). Public speaking is another area of my expertise having presented at several conferences.

For a dynamic, patient tutor who motivates her learners and considers their learning styles, call me for your tutoring needs.

MS-Certified: Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft Excel 2007, Microsoft PowerPoint 2007, Microsoft Outlook 2007; ESOL, Spanish, public speaking, career development, standardized tests, math, grammar, reading, writing, pronunciation, accent-reduction

Because I have taught adult education classes at a state college for over seven years, I feel very comfortable in public speaking.

As an adjunct professor at a state college, I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) for over ten years. I have also tutored second-language learners from many countries, including Japan, Colombia, and Peru in English. I learned a second language, myself, so I can better understand the difficulties many of my students experience in learning English. In addition to teaching English grammar, reading, writing, pronunciation, and accent-reduction, I have also tutored learners to present standardized tests, such as the CASAS, TABE, GED, TESOL and others.

I have a lot of experience in reading - especially as one of my favorite hobbies.

Great tutor!

So far, so good. Mary is fun and understands my needs, and is also very knowledgeable and fluent in the Spanish language.

Muffie, 6 lessons with Mary

Working under pressure

Mary has been working several times per week to help my daughter to prepare for her IB Spanish oral exam, sort of at the last minute, and my daughter feels it has really helped her. She feels much better prepared and her anxiety is lower. My daughter had a change in teachers a few weeks prior to the exam and the expectations were higher and she was not prepared, so Mary has really helped her catch up.

Elizabeth, 11 lessons with Mary

Great job

Mary did a great job helping my daughter with her algebra. Her grades are improving and she has more confidence doing her work. She was on time and very nice. You can tell Mary loves helping students. She was great!
