About Mary

I view each child as unique and capable. I have experience working with a wide range of students from the special education program through the gifted and talented. I am a strong believer in metacognition - helping students understand how they learn. When students think about how they learn, they become more motivated and confident learners. I have a double major in elementary education and communications and a law degree. More importantly, I have three boys of my own in grades 3, 6, and 11. Currently, I work as a substitute teacher for grades K - 12. I have experience working with students with ADD/ADHD and dyslexia.

No contracts. Flexible scheduling.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been a substitute teacher and a substitute paraprofessional in the Delano Public Schools for 2 years. I am familiar with the curriculum in the LD/DCD/EBD classrooms since I have subbed for every SPED teacher in the elementary school building.

I have a B.A. in Communications from the U of M, a law degree from Hamline University, and I am finishing a second B.A. in Elementary Education from Southwestern College.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a B.A. in communications and a law degree from Hamline University School of law. I have two courses left (taking this summer session) to fulfill requirements for a second bachelor's in elementary education. I have tutored Continental Math for accelerated math students and K-5 subjects for at-level and below level students.

Praxis

I passed the PRAXIS on my first attempt. The test is fresh in my mind since I just took the exam August 2014. I am able to teach strategies for prioritizing as well as provide tutoring for the basic skills and curriculum instruction assessment. I have completed my student teaching, I am a substitute teacher, and I am a basic skills tutor.
