About Mary

The desire to help others achieve is what led me to become a teacher. I have worked with students of many ages, and my specialty (certification area) is English.

Do you need help with reading? Grammar? Literature? With more than 10 years teaching experience, I am patient, compassionate and dedicated to student success.

I am also able to tutor elementary and middle school math, as well as social studies and other behavioral sciences.

I look forward to helping you achieve your educational goals!

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.

English

I am a certified English teacher and I've taught English and Speech to grades 7-12. My strengths are grammar and editing. In addition to teaching, I have also worked as a professional journalist and a college advisor.
