About Mara

I have taught English language learners of all ages from 2nd grade to adult. I speak, read, and write in Spanish. I am a certified K-5 elementary teacher who has been teaching in the public schools for the past 11 years. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa and my Master's degree from the University of Illinois Springfield.

I really enjoy helping people learn the language. I like to focus on what will be most helpful for that individual. It can be reading, getting around town, common phrases, or passing a test. Learning becomes easier when it is something that is important to the individual.

I also have a lot of experience with reading and writing for native English speakers at the elementary school level. I have tutored many Spanish students as well.

Let me know what your needs are and I will tell you how I can help.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified k-5 elementary teacher who has been teaching in the public schools for the past 9 years. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa and my Master's degree from the University of Illinois Springfield. I utilize a variety of research based strategies in my instruction.

Study Skills

I have worked both in the public schools and for private companies in the area of helping students with study skills. Part of my goal when working with students on study skills is to think through ideas completely. This means using logic and reducing anxiety. When a student has the right tools and confidence to succeed, he or she will be more successful.
