About Mary

I am an elementary school teacher and I love helping children learn. I have worked as a tutor after school during the year as well as during the summers. Though I teach 1st grade, I have tutored students in grades K-8.

When students are struggling, one on one assistance can make a world of difference. We all learn at different rates and use a variety of methods. I will work with each student to find out the best way for them to learn and then provide the appropriate activities. The joy of tutoring is seeing a student master a concept and watch their confidence grow.

The teaching of reading is a process. It calls for practice, practice and more practice. The more you do it, the better you became at it. I help students build their fluency by oral reading, decode unknown words, learn vocabulary words from the story and comprehend what they are reading through a variety of activities.

Learning at the elementary level is developmental. It is necessary to provide the kind of activities that will allow a student to succeed. Once their confidence grows, then they are ready to take on more challenging activities.

I use the Workshop Way program in my classroom. It provides repetition exercises for learning sounds. It also encourages students to take a risk and understand that it is okay to make a mistake. I use this philosophy in all subject areas as well.

Learning is a life long process. If you are looking to feel better about yourself and school, contact me to set up a time to meet. I would love to be your tutor and help you to become more successful in school.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher. I have been teaching for 20+ years in a classroom. I teach all subject areas including study skills. I also have experience tutoring students one on one and in small groups. I like to treat each student individually and provided activities that will help them learn best.

Phonics

I use the Workshop Way to teach phonics in my classroom. This program covers sounds of letters and how to analyze words. It also encourages students to take a risk in a safe learning environment. They are not made to feel bad about making a mistake because we all learn at different times.

Study Skills

In my teaching experience, I have helped students prepare for standardized testing. In this process, I have helped them develop study skills for taking all tests. Some of these skills include reading for detail, learning vocabulary words, identifying key words in a question or passage and how to read graphs.
