About Mary

I teach computers and I love to teach beginners. Teaching is all about helping the student become confident in their own ability. My favorite moment is watching a student's face when it suddenly clicks. Learning computers is not about smarts, it is not about being able to program, it is about familiarity. If a student is willing to trust themselves, I can help them discover how to do it.

I teach college courses part time at a two year college, because I so enjoy adult learners who bring their life experiences to the classroom. I really enjoy them, but because there is only part time work available for me, I've decided I wanted to teach more and that tutoring would offer me that opportunity to do more.

My college degree is in elementary education, but I really prefer teaching adults, especially beginners. I had one student who started the semester by bragging how he took a baseball bat to his computer. He ended the semester with an A that he totally earned.

Read my resume for the details of my education and certifications, but ask for me if you want help. We'll figure it out together.

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.

General Computer

I am certified in the Microsoft Windows operating system and in Microsoft Office. I have also taught courses at a two year college in Brainerd MN both in general computers, operating systems and advanced operating systems. In addition, I have worked as a trainer in a steel company - not the most computer saavy bunch to start - and have helped them understand how to save files, print documents, find documents, create emails and add attachments to them, filter emails, and use other business software. I have patience with beginners and for those with more skill can help you be more confident and look more professional.

Patient! — Mary is Great! Very, very patient and intuitive. It is obvious that Mary takes her students seriously and wants to give them the best training she can, so she finds a way to personalize and communicate in a way they understand. I have had a major wall towards the use of the computer and Mary is gently helping me break through that wall! I will be seeing a lot of her. ...
