About Mary

Last year I graduated from an American Studies program in Alabama, focusing on history, writing, and film studies. For the past year I've been subbing in Ann Arbor public schools.

The bulk of my subbing experience has been with kids who need extra attention with reading and math. I'm patient and thorough and a great interest in those kids who have a lot to offer but just need a little extra attention to get there.

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.

Film

My undergraduate degree was a broad exploration of various forms of film history and criticism, culminating in a scene by scene commentary of 'The Thin Man' accompanied by a presentation on the apparent difficulties in researching a film that is more than 70 years old.
As a graduate student, my research was focused on early 1930s American film, particularly the representation of women in pre-Code cinema. The subject of my Masters colloquium was the evolution of the modern woman as illustrated in the love triangles of Ernst Lubitsch. I also taught a class on pre-Code film.
Both degree pursuits and my own personal interest have made me familiar with film from the beginning to the present, as well as some of the outstanding figures of Western European cinema.
