About Mary

I am a certified teacher with 28 years of teaching experience. I began my career as a middle school science teacher,then taught Kindergarten for 16 years, and have taught second and third grades since then.

I have been tutoring one-on-one for five years. I love to connect with children, and tutoring is one of the most effective ways to accomplish that. I have successfully tutored students who were having difficulty with reading or math. I also have worked with students whose parents just want them to have an extra edge, or learn study skills. I use Common Core standards to plan grade-appropriate lessons, and I provide verbal feedback to the parents at the end of each session. I am willing to support what the child is working on in school, or work with parents to develop a plan for their student's lessons.

I am adept at establishing a rapport with elementary age children and assessing where they need help. I use a variety of learning techniques to engage students, while providing them the support they need to challenge themselves.

I look forward to meeting you to see if we can work together to improve your child's success in school. I meet with students once or twice a week, for an hour each session, at Lansing area libraries. I am available after school hours and during the summer break, but do not tutor on holidays.

Common Core

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Common Core

I am a certified teacher with 28 years of teaching experience. I always download the common core standards for any grade or subject I teach. I review the common core standards before teaching that grade and subject, and refer to them as I plan lessons. When possible, I will work with the student's classroom teacher to determine which common core standards are currently being taught, so as to coordinate our efforts for the benefit of the student.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a 28 year certified veteran elementary teacher, qualified to teach all subjects K-8. I also have been one-on-one tutoring for the past 5 years. I currently teach third grade, and have taught second grade and Kindergarten as well.

Elementary Math

I have taught all subjects, including math, in my own classrooms for 22 years. I use the Common Core for the student's grade level as a guideline, but will pre-test each student to determine where to begin and focus our efforts. I use hands-on methods when practical.

Reading

I have 23 years of experience teaching elementary school; all subjects; LIFT and MLPP training; 5 years tutoring in reading and math.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher with 28 years of teaching experience. In tutoring students for the past 5 years, I have often worked with students to teach them how to use study skills. In language arts, we usually work on an ongoing project, such as a research paper, which requires them to conduct and document research, evaluate the value of the information they are accessing, take notes, write paragraphs, edit, revise, and type a final copy. In math, we learn to create learning aids, such as flash cards, to help learn particular facts or skills. We also learn how to review in preparation for tests or quizzes, and go back over incorrect responses to understand why they were inaccurate,
