I moved to the Charlotte area from Arizona at the end of 2013 and have been helping students with my skills, knowledge and experience. My love and appreciation for working with children of all ages began with studying for my master's degree in Early Childhood Development from Ohio State University. My work experience includes over twelve years of experience working with children having developmental disabilities and autism. I was responsible for developing sequentially-based teaching modules for activities of daily living which included math, writing, communication and social skills.
In 1994, I began taking graduate courses in counseling, and found a full-time internship working at a community mental health center in Mesa, AZ. Most of my clients were children who had been diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, ADD, Bipolar Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disabilities (Autism and Asperger's Syndrome), and Reactive Attachment Disorder. Through the therapeutic process, I worked with students on their study and learning skills, as well as helping them improve their social and communication skills. We also worked on ways to reduce test anxiety and stress.
I specialize in tutoring English, Grammar, Spelling, Reading, Proofreading, English, Writing, Literature, and public speaking. I love working with children in preschool and kindergarten, helping them get ready for the next year. Because each child is unique, I work at the child's level, using his or her interests and strengths to work on learning tasks. I follow the Common Core standards for each grade for North and South Carolina. Each student's learning style tells me which tutoring tools to use to help with studying: auditory, visual and kinesthetic.
I believe it's the responsibility of an educator to find the best way to help children learn, making it fun for them. Consequently, I may use music, movement and play to help teach and improve students' focus and attention spans.
I am results-oriented, so I ask for feedback and do not bill for a lesson if the student or parent is not satisfied with my services.
I have some flexibility with my time, and a 24 hour cancellation policy.
I bring my services to your home to help your student learn to improve his or her skills within the familiar home environment. It's always a joy to watch students improve, building up their confidences and skills.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss ways in which we can work together for a WIN-WIN experience.
Knowledgeable, Efficient tutor that makes it fun for the kids!
MaryLynne is working with both my son and daughter and is wonderful with them. She is patient, keeps them engaged and gives us an update on their progress each week. She was very good at assessing where they are and coming up with a plan to get them where they need to be. She is also very punctual and comes to our home, which is awesome. We love MaryLynne!Stevie, 96 lessons with Mary Lynne
I appreciate the tips and study strategies recommended. Studying skills and test taking strategy is a universal transferable area whether it’s the ACT or CFA level 1. I also appreciative an accountability model.Kevin, 2 lessons with Mary Lynne

Excellent Public Speaking Instructor!
My daughter and son have been working with Ms. MaryLynne to improve their public speaking skills before entering middle school. We selected the perfect instructor! Ms. MaryLynne is highly experienced with children. She provides concise and constructive feedback in a manner that is very well received by the child. I have seen their progress from class to class. My children are already more confident speakers. If you are looking for a professional, experienced, results-driven, honest, reliable, and punctual instructor then I recommend Ms. MaryLynne.Elisa, 20 lessons with Mary Lynne
She is the greatest English teacher I’ve ever met!
She is the greatest English teacher I’ve ever met. I could not find a better teacher who pointed out my mistakes naturally so that I can learn my mistakes with ease. She would not hesitate pointing out my critical mistakes too, which makes me aware of my bad habits. I feel like my English is improving fast by fixing them. She gives good leading questions for me to talk a lot. She is patient, graceful with warm personality and rich in teaching knowledge and skills. I am looking forward to her lessons every week.Yumi, 24 lessons with Mary Lynne
Mrs. Marylynne has had 20 tutoring sessions with my son thus far. I'm pleased with her tenacity as she is able to keep my son engaged in his lessons. She is patient, neutral and can communicate effectively. I'm impressed with the changes that I have seen within my son since he started tutoring, he's more confident and his level of focus has increased. I look forward to incorporating my daughter with Marylynne's tutoring as she is doing an amazing job with my son.Vilma, 44 lessons with Mary Lynne
MaryLynne W. a wonderful teacher
MaryLynne provides outstanding services in person or on-line. I rely on her ability to review reports in a very short time frame. She is always accurate, professional, on time and very detail oriented. I enjoy all the interactions I have with her remotely and in person. I continue to benefit from her teaching impact as I move forward. Than you for a great experience and excellent customer support.Wagner, 19 lessons with Mary Lynne
Best English Teacher
Mary was very conscientious with the time spent for learning. She was very kind, patient and communicated clearly. She taught valuable strategies on how to read and write. She is very flexible and tailors each lesson to the needs of the student. For my daughter Mary starts each lesson of second grade with guided reading, vocabulary and grammar, followed by some writing traits. My daughter highly appreciates the time spent with Mary. I hope that after working with Mary for a few months, my kids are becoming more confident and effective speaker and writers with Mary’s lesson.Helen, 137 lessons with Mary Lynne
MaryLynne, Did a great job reviewing a story that I wrote for my son. She went the extra step to explain to me grammar rules that I have forgotten over the years, and was very insightful on how to improve going forward. I would strongly recommend anyone to send her a writing sample and she will improve your writing capability.Doug, 2 lessons with Mary Lynne
