About Mary Ann

Hello!

Thank you for clicking my profile!

It sounds like you are in need of some tutoring. Well, you've come to the right spot. I am a community college and 6-12 state of Michigan (WI, FL and OR) high school English teacher with 12 years experience. My students have been special needs kids, mainstream kids, AP and dual-enrolled students. I have also taught in both urban and suburban schools and parochial and public schools. Do you fall into any of those categories? If not, no worries. I have also tutored students for the GED. What I'm trying to say is that I am interested in tutoring all students - whatever walk of life you come from.

My personality is very vibrant and easy-going. I do tend to get excited when I see a student make progress. I will push you, but it will be with encouragement and guidance. I welcome questions! Please, please, give me questions! To me, that means you are digesting the material and making sense of it.

Looking forward to hearing from you and moving along with some great progress!

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.

English

I have been an English teacher for 12 years. I have a Bachelor's degree from Ferris State University, a Master's degree from Michigan State University. and a Master's in English from University of Michigan-Flint. I have taught in urban, suburban, and rural colleges and high school. I am interested in helping students succeed by giving them skills to be confident in the use of our English language.

Study Skills

As a 7th - 12th grade English teacher for the past 12 years I have developed many study skills techniques for students to practice in order to succeed. Manipulating the information - either by rewriting, verbalizing, teaching, discussing, creating mnemonic devices, or by finding additional mediums by which to learn information are all great study skills that help students succeed. Being able to model, teach and practice these techniques with students allows me to be a successful study skills tutor.
