About Mary Ellen

I am a registered nurse who stopped working last year to care for my dad who has since passed away. I don't really want to go back to nursing after 38 years of full time duty. My children are grown and on their own and I have three granddaughters. I went back to college in the late 90s and graduated with a double degree in history and classics(greek and latin) and a masters degree in history in 2003.

I homeschooled my three daughters for three years in the 1990s for personal reasons. These years included grades 3-9 and they all went back to public school, did very well and have since all graduated from college and are out on their own. Other than that I have no experience other than mentoring young nurses and corpsmen in the Navy. I have taught classes for adults but love children and always thought I would teach as a second career. Due to family obligations, that was not feasible and at this time I do not wish to work full time.

An undergraduate degree in Latin and Greek necessitates a thorough understanding of english grammar as a foundation. I am an avid reader and have been so my entire life. I enjoy almost any type of literature and believe that reading ability and comprehension are essential for success in life.

I hold a Bachelors and a Masters degree in History, completed in 2003. I have continued to pursue these studies since returning to Maine. I love history and believe it is fundamental to education. Areas of special study include ancient history, WWII, medical history and 18th and 19th century American history. I have an extensive personal library and have no problem with expanding it, if need be, to cover any topic needed.

I am a lifelong learner and believe you are never too old or too young to learn. I have reliable transportation and currently very few demands on my time which makes my schedule very flexible. I love kids and love to teach.

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.

Classics

I studied classical languages Greek and Latin as well as the history of the ancient world and earned the A.B. degree in Classical studies from the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC in 2001. I have continued to study both of these languages on my own in order to maintain my fluency. Both of these languages are considered dead languages, not spoken, but used in historical and archaeological studies and research. The history of the ancient world is the forerunner of modern western civilization and provides a solid foundation for later history, literature and art.
