Bio

I am a certified Illinois Math teacher who taught Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II in a Chicago High School. I also taught Computer Applications and Computer Science including AP Computer Science. I left teaching to become a corporate trainer at several of Chicago's largest law firms. My greatest strength is translating the subject matter into understandable terms. While working with attorneys, I was constantly complimented on my ability to teach without intimidation. ...

I am a certified Illinois Math teacher who taught Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II in a Chicago High School. I also taught Computer Applications and Computer Science including AP Computer Science. I left teaching to become a corporate trainer at several of Chicago's largest law firms. My greatest strength is translating the subject matter into understandable terms. While working with attorneys, I was constantly complimented on my ability to teach without intimidation. Several of the attorneys requested that I tutor their parents in using their computers. I enjoyed working with seniors as much as I had enjoyed working with younger students.

As a tutor, I have tutored College Algebra and Trig as well as all levels of math including 7th and 8th graders through college students. I have prepared students in the math portion of the ACT test. I have worked with students who were failing math very late in the year and helped them attain a final grade of B or C.

However, my greatest thrill is seeing the change in a student's confidence in themselves as they go from failure to success.

I am Microsoft certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist in Word and Excel.

Wonderful tutor!

In one session Mary K. gave my daughter confidence in math and explained it to her in a way that she could understand. Thank you Mary K.! We will definitely be using you again.

Antonio, 1 lesson with Mary

Very Knowledgeable and patient math tutor!

Mary has helped my son with his Junior year of Algebra 2. She has restored his confidence. Within three weeks he had moved from a grade of D- and is now at a C-. We will continue to use Mary as we head into final semester exams. She is a keeper!

Great knowledge, follow-up and comfort level

Mary immediately got back to me based on my initial request, broke down her experience, her background and was very precise regarding her lesson plans and logistics. My daughter loved meeting with her and working with her. I highly recommend Mary.

Awesome math tutor review

Mary is awesome. She even ordered a copy of the review book to have a better understanding of what was going to be on the test and how to best prepare. She has put together a plan and can explain the material well. Highly recommend.

Very Knowledgeable!

My experience with Wyzant has been very positive. I was very comfortable with their website and how you go about finding a tutor. Everything is done very professional. I chose Mary as my tutor and I am very happy that I did! Mary is very knowledgeable in word and Excel and that's what I needed. Mary is very accommodating with scheduling the lessons and I am feeling more confident each time we meet. I will be able to do Excel spreadsheets without stressing!!

Kathy, 2 lessons with Mary

Very patient and understanding!

Mary is an excellent tutor. Without her help and encouragement I would never have been able to get through my first interview. I know I need more help in a few areas but I have a great tutor to help me through each step. Thank you for Mary!
