About Mary

I have tutored all of my children (5) throughout their school years, plus some of their friends. I have also tutored my best friend in her college courses for pre-algebra, algebra, and accounting. Math is a very favorite subject of mine. I also love reading, spelling, phonics.

I love to work with children and teach them to learn; it is wonderful to see the "light-bulb" go on when they finally understand a subject they have been struggling with. Education is the most important part of children's lives; it makes life so much easier if they know how to read and comprehend what they are reading. Also math is a skill that is need throughout their lives - so they really need to master the skills of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, at least, so that other areas of math aren't as hard to learn and comprehend.

I have assisted 7 people to reach college level and do it with great grade averages. I was a foster parent for 8 years, and then I adopted my two foster daughters. I decided to go into my husband's construction business. Our last child is in 6th grade and she is an A+ student in every subject. Study habits are very important; that is what I teach my children.

Thank you Debbie. I hope I help you understand the subject. I love math and hope in some way I can help you to like it just a little bit. Also hope to alleviate some of the anxiety for you about test taking. If you know what you are doing then it does build confidence in the subject.

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.

Swimming

I have taught all 6 of my children and 4 of my grandchildren to swim. I have also taught 4 of my nieces and nephews to swim. I know basic swimming strokes as well as how to teach floating techniques.
