About Mary

Growing up homeschooled, every activity I took part in – whether baking in the kitchen, fixing electronic devices, or helping in the garden – was turned into a learning moment. If I discovered an area of interest, I was allowed to dive deeper into it and learn more. This quality has grown with me and has led to my love of learning and teaching others.

I recently traveled to Tanzania-Africa, where I volunteered for several months teaching math and science. The classrooms I taught consisted of over fifty students who were 10-12 years old. During my time there I discovered that corporal punishment is an accepted part of their culture and is practiced in the schools. Despite being encouraged to continue this practice, I assumed a leadership position in developing innovative classroom management techniques to motivate students towards success without the treat of corporal punishment.

What I love most about tutoring is helping kids develop a love of learning which

As a Magna Cum Laude graduate in Biology, I am proficient in scientific topics. I specialize in tutoring subjects such as: Biology, Genetics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Anatomy. With experience tutoring highschool students, I have knowledge in creating lesson plans for individual pupils which differ according to their level of academic development.

I have experience as a Private piano instructor for over 5 years now. During this I am responsible for educating students to build the capacity and skills to play music. I teach the fundamental principles of music theory and performance to students and create and prepare lesson plans for individual pupils.

I am generally available for tutoring every day from 3:30pm-7:30pm, however I am flexible with working with your schedule.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

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.

Genetics

As a biology graduate, I have completed courses in genetics where I received an A. I also have experience working in a lab studying the emergence of epilepsy due to the over expression of the BDNF gene. Through research I gained hands on experience in performing PCR and genotyping.

Piano

I have experience as a private piano instructor for over 5 years. As a private instructor I am responsible for educating students to build the capacity and skills to play music. I teach the fundamental principles of music theory and performance to students.
