I'm Mary! I have an undergraduate degree in Secondary Science Education and a Master's degree in Literacy and Language Instruction. I am also state certified as a Reading Specialist. As a highly qualified and certified teacher I have tutored in many different settings, including Charter Schools, Homeschool Coops, and Tutoring companies. While at the Charter School I reading and writing in a Title I setting, and my students improved greatly. In the homeschool coops, I taught writing using the Institute for Excellence in Writing and all my parents were thrilled with how I helped their students become great writers. At the last tutoring company I worked for, I employed my knowledge of Orton-Gillingham to help students have a better grasp of the english language. What was most rewarding for me in all these experiences was watching the students gain confidence in reading and writing. They went from "reading is hard to reading is fun" and "I can't write to look at my writing." As a tutor I tailor my lessons to reach the goals that we set for your child. I believe that each child is unique and approach tutor with that in mind.

I have many years of experience working with students in K-6 as a teacher and literacy specialist in libraries.

I am state certified as a reading specialist and have had additional training to enhance my knowledge through Central Michigan University.

I am a former homeschool mom of three and have worked in several homeschool coops as a teacher/tutor. I understand the needs and concerns of homeschooling families.

I have been trained and have experience tutoring using Orton-Gillingham.

Parents, I encourage you to contact me to discuss further how I can help your child excel at reading and writing. After the first contact I will send in more information about my lesson plans and policies to ensure that you are completely comfortable with my methods.
