About Mary

If you look at my picture, you will see some of my students and myself having a very good time. This is because I love teaching and I do my best to make learning easy and fun. I have been teaching in almost every situation: at schools as a teacher, a substitute teacher, a special education teacher, an art teacher, a one to one and even a summer camp leader. These different experiences gave me the knowledge which allowed me to find myself as a teacher.

My education includes, undergrad at the University of Illinois - Chicago and my Master's and Certification were received from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Both of these schools are excellent. I received my Special Education classes from National Louis University which allowed me to receive an endorsement. My experience in teaching has led from both public and private Day Schools, CPS and where I teach now at Evanston Skokie District 65. As a teacher my certificates include K-9 and 6-12th grades licenses.

Please contact me because I will do my best to give you the knowledge that you need and we will have fun doing it. I am able to come to your house, meet you at a Library and any place that works for you. Of course you are also welcome to come here and driving to your house is never an issue. My teaching background includes small groups and several years of working with individual students, in the areas of Math, Language Arts, and Reading and Grammar. I have taught a broad range of students with and without Learning Disabilities and my experience also includes Asperger's Syndrome. Currently, I am teaching Language Arts/History in an Evanston middle school to 6th graders and enjoying every minute of it.
