About Mary

Hello. I specialize in helping students with their reading comprehension, writing skills, grammar, and verbal communication skills. I am an experienced and enthusiastic English and English as a Second Language teacher. The skills and information I gain from students helps me teach to their preferred learning styles. I listen to students, pinpoint their areas of concern, and guide them to a better understanding of why they are having difficulties. I give them strategies to help them become confident students, and then help them work towards improving their communication and/or grades.
I also place a great deal of importance on trying new strategies to help students succeed. I taught overseas in Australia and the United Kingdom during my early teaching career and have been teaching students in the a high school in the United States for twelve years.

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 hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree (Linguistics and Education) and a Master of Arts Teaching ESL.
My subject qualifications include: Writing, Grammar, Vocabulary, Spelling, ESL, and Reading.

ESL/ESOL

I am qualified to teach ESL/ESOL because I hold MTEL licenses in ESL and English. Also, I have a Master's of Teaching in ESL. Additionally, I have been teaching ESL at a high school in Massachusetts for 13 years. Previous to that, I taught ESL to adults, and high school-aged and middle school-aged students in Australia and England.

Writing

I have excellent grammar skills and create the layout and content of 95% of the worksheets that I give my students. I hold a Master's Degree in ESL, I completed an Advanced Creative Writing course in August, 2014, and am a member of a writers' club that was established by the professor who taught that class. I am a voracious reader, write in different genres, and two of my research papers are published online.
