My BA is in Interdisciplinary Studies and my MA is in Curriculum and Instruction as a Reading Specialist from the University of Texas. I have spent many years tutoring students in reading and math. I have worked as a Reading Specialist. In Texas I worked as a Title 1 Reading Specialist teaching Dyslexic students using Orton-Gillingham. I moved to Florida and taught in a private boarding school teaching reading to students with learning problems. I have been trained in Linda-Mood Bell programs (LIPS and Verbalizing and Visualizing) and also Spell Read another program for students with reading difficulties. I am certified in Texas and Florida in Elementary Education and K-12 Reading. I am also certified in ESE.

I am retired now but have found that I miss the student/teacher interaction and would absolutely love to teach again on a part-time basis. There is nothing more satisfying than to be able to teach one-on-one and watch when your student begins to see his or her potential and realize, "I can do this!"

I would be thrilled to be able to help you or your child.

ESL/ESOL

I am a retired teacher with a Master's Degree in Reading. Throughout my career I have taught and taken many classes in ESOL. Last year I taught reading to students from Puerto Rico, so I understand the strategies needed to teach these students and the problems they encounter when trying to learn English.

Phonics,

Phonics

I have a Masters degree as a Reading Specialist. I have also had training in many programs which are multi-sensory approaches to teaching phonics. I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham, Linda Mood Bell, and Spell Read Pat. I have taught these on a one-to-one basis and in small groups. Students who have trouble with reading, writing, and spelling learn in different ways. Students who have these problems need to learn the sound/symbol relationship in a very structured way. They need repetition but also need to learn using all their senses.

Spelling and reading go hand in hand. In order to be a good speller, you must be able to know the sounds that are associated with each letter. I have been a Reading teacher for the past 20 years and will be able to teach your child many strategies to be able to become a good speller

Algebra 1

Although my degree is in Reading, I have always loved Algebra. I am especially excited to teach Algebra because, as opposed to reading, there is always a right answer. I feel that Algebra problems are a puzzle that need to be solved, and I'd like my students to feel the same way. I have taught 5th grade math for 5 years and have tutored students in Algebra.

Excellent tutor

So happy to find my son such a patient tutor for his summer reading help. Very knowledgeable with alternative way to help him accomplish his goals. I can't say enough good things about her A+++

Erin, 19 lessons with Mary

Mary is great with my son! She is kind and patient.

Mary is teaching me some techniques to help my son myself (in between her sessions) I really appreciate that. I like how Mary takes her time going through a lesson and realizes when he needs a break.
