About Mary Ann


Bio

My entire career has been dedicated to helping others be successful. There is no better feeling than seeing someone achieve a goal, and know that I have been a part of it!

I bring a background in corporate and educational settings. I am also skilled in teaching and coaching online. I taught, trained and coached in English grammar, punctuation, writing essays, as well as broad business communications skills such as presentations, writing emails, listening, speaking on the telephone,...

My entire career has been dedicated to helping others be successful. There is no better feeling than seeing someone achieve a goal, and know that I have been a part of it!

I bring a background in corporate and educational settings. I am also skilled in teaching and coaching online. I taught, trained and coached in English grammar, punctuation, writing essays, as well as broad business communications skills such as presentations, writing emails, listening, speaking on the telephone, writing for different audiences and purposes. While I enjoy the classroom setting, I believe I help a student or client most by working with them one on one to improve their communication or writing. My writing classes were always conducted as workshops so that I could help students individually.

I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in English with a focus on language. My expertise in English ranges from the finer points of punctuation, grammar, syntax to writing sentences, paragraphs, topic sentences, thesis statements and essays. I assist with writer's block, brainstorming and organizing thoughts. In my most recent corporate job, my company employed both Spanish-speaking and Japanese-speaking individuals. Because of my background, I conducted conversation classes to help these non-native speakers improve their abilities to communicate within our manufacturing setting. I am currently pursuing my certificate in teaching English as a foreign language.

I spent several years working for a career transition company where I personally coached over 500 clients in the career transition and development process. As part of the process, I helped the client identify their strengths, and what type of job they wanted. We also wrote long-term career goals so that they had a plan to achieve not just the next step but the one after that. I coached them on how to write resumes that highlighted their strengths and how to write cover letters. I also prepared them for the interview process, conducted practice interviews and

I teach career management skills that you did not learn in business school and your mentor does not know. I have coached over 1000 clients in these skills which include branding yourself, executive functioning, developing a network of contacts to support you career goals, and when necessary, conducting a successful job campaign. I will teach you how to write an accomplishment-based resume that quantifies your experience and that uses keywords to align with ATS. I will teach you how to prepare for an interview, conduct mock behavioral interviews using the STAR method, and I will help you write your two minute commercial as well as your LinkedIn profile and personal brand website. Have you gotten stuck in your career or are you ready for the next step? I will guide you in developing a career plan and coach you through the process of getting unstuck, changing jobs or career direction, transitioning to self-employment or into retirement.

With over 20 years in corporate speaking experience, I developed my speaking abilities by conducting hundreds of workshops in leadership, communication, business English, and customer service. I have spoken at a symposium on the use of technology in business communication, at a purchasing association on managing change, and have been a judge in a public speaking competition at a local campus of Indiana University. I am a certified facilitator through Achieve Global. Recently, I have been tutoring teens in developing their conversation skills.

Very knowledgeable, Patient, Fun, Caring, Step by Step instruction!

Mary Ann, helped my son with study techniques when writing essays. When the tutoring session was completed Mary Ann followed up with me, and my son was for the first time without stress. He'd obtained new study strategies to help with work assignments. I would recommend Mary Ann. In fact, I will be contacting her again if the need arises. Thank you, Mary Ann!
