About Mary Beth


Bio

I am one of the fortunate ones; I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher. After 15 years of teaching, I spent three summers receiving specialized training to help students who struggle with reading, math, phonics, spelling and handwriting.
During my last seven years as a teacher, I taught in a program where we worked with students one-on-one in these areas. I have always preferred to work one-on-one which is why tutoring works so well for my students and for me.

Elementary (K-6th)

Although I mostly taught math and reading during my years as an upper elementary and middle school teacher, I also taught social studies for 12 years. In my undergraduate elementary school training, I enjoyed our class in teaching social studies in the elementary school. About five years later I taught my first social studies class.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

Math has always been my favorite subject to teach and to tutor. In my 26 years of teaching, elementary and middle school math was a major part of my teaching schedule. Although I taught in the classroom much of the time, my preferred way to work with students has always been one-on-one. It is the most effective way to work.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

I have three certificates from the National Institute for Learning Development. Part of the training was in teaching handwriting. For seven years I taught handwriting one-on-one.
Phonics,

Phonics

I have three certificates from the National Institute of Learning Development. Phonics is one of the major areas in which we received training, especially during our first training. I was already a licensed reading teacher, yet I found this phonics training very helpful. I spent seven years using this program one-on-one.
Reading

Reading

I have been a certified reading teacher since September 1996. Before then and since then, I have worked teaching reading in small groups and one-on-one. It is always a satisfying challenge to teach a student to read. It is a pleasure to see him/her gain or strengthen this necessary skill.

Helped me revolutionize my handwriting

My handwriting has always been hard to read even by me. After working with Mary Beth for a few sessions, my handwriting is so improved that I don't even recognize it anymore. It is really fun to have my handwriting look so good, and most importantly now anybody would be able to enjoy reading it.
