About Mary

This past year of 2014-2015, I have been working with adults with essay writing and reading comprehension at the graduate level. Customers have been very satisfied with the results. I charge $40 an hour for graduate-based work, due to the higher level of difficulty and expertise. I am willing to help you with this should you need it, for it is enjoyable work for me.

I have also been helping adults with conversational ESL.

Finally, I have worked with adults with special needs, such as with organization, job coaching, and Math for the GED.

I am certified to teach Math, English and EC. I am able to assist with graduate work due to having excelled in graduate school and by my latest track record of providing highly skilled assistance.

I am available to work with adults and children with various levels of learning in Math, English as a Second Language, Reading/Writing, and Special Needs (ADHD, High Functioning Autism, Learning Disabilities, Advanced Learners etc). I can meet at a library or come to your home (additional small fee for driving distances).

I am a quirky person, who enjoys learning, exploring the world, being creative, and working with people of different backgrounds and interests!

Masters Degree in Teaching (M.A.T.)

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 experience in working with students with ADD/ADHD. For the past 6 years, I have taught Resource classes at the high school level to students with ADD/ADHD as well as related disabilities, and have tailored instructional practices to best suit their needs. I have also provided assistance in an inclusion classroom. I manage a caseload of 30 students and provide feedback to classroom teachers and the community in how to best help their children. I also have tutored students with ADD/ADHD for many years. Prior to all of this, I have also helped at two charter schools that assist students with disabilities. I also a Masters degree and teaching license in Special Education.

Anthropology

I have a bachelors (double major) in Anthropology-Archeology and Film from the University of Southern California. I conducted extra research of the tel Megiddo in Israel, and both participated as a field hand and as a video documentarian over a summer.

Archaeology

I have a bachelors (double major) in Anthropology-Archeology and Film from the University of Southern California. I conducted extra research of the tel Megiddo in Israel, and both participated as a field hand and as a video documentarian over a summer.

Aspergers

I have a Masters in Special Education, with a focus on Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. There was focus on Asperger Syndrome. I trained at a summer intensive workshop in working with the Autism Spectrum. Finally, I myself have Aspergers syndrome, and am connected to the AU community in my local city.

Autism

I have been teaching young people with mild/moderate disabilities for over six years. I have a Master's in Special Education and focused especially on Autism. I have additional training through TEACCH as a practitioner/teacher of students on the Autism Spectrum. Finally, I myself have high-functioning Autism, and have learned a great deal additionally through a wealth of resources, sitting on my bookshelf.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching English as a Second Language in Taiwan for three years to adults learning Business English, conversation, and writing skills. I have also been teaching ESL to schools in the daytime for public schools, and evenings for cram schools.

Film

I am qualified to tutor in film because I majored in Film from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, which is one of the top schools for film in the world. I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I have taught Film Production as a College Instructor at Piedmont Community College for a few years, as well as have taught video production for a charter high school. I have worked as a videographer for weddings and commercial shoots, acted in films and plays, and have written various articles for film and television criticism. I am also a certified teacher.

Phonics

I have been teaching and co-teaching phonics to students in the high school setting for nine years. I have a Master's in Teaching, and in my program, I studied phonemic awareness so I could help special needs students. I teach English to non-native speakers, and have done so since 2001. I have taught Phonics to student on my EC caseload to help them make progress on their IEP goals.

Special Needs

I have a Master's in Teaching in Special Education, and have focused on Learning Disabilities in Math and Reading, ADHD, and Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. I am also licensed in Special Education. Finally, I have been teaching Special Needs students for over seven years.

Study Skills

I can work with people of all ages and learning abilities and target what they need to do to help them master and retain learning content. I can show and teach different ways to retain knowledge, including use of mnemonics, pictures, application, language, repetition, and tactics to decrease anxiety. I can also work with psychological blocks in maintaining content knowledge and/or in test-tasking strategies. I can teach ways to keep records of assignments, deadlines, goals, and personal files. I have been trained by many ways: graduate school in special education, on-the-job by working with students who struggle of all ages for over 10 years, and as a person myself who struggles with study skills - I found many creative ways to overcome and get straight A's in college and graduate school.

Video Production

I have a bachelors in film (as well as anthropology-archaeology) from the University of Southern California. I taught video production full time in the film/video school at Piedmont Community College, NC

Perfect Tutor

I found the perfect tutor for my grandson. He was diagnosed as ADHD and was struggling in math. Because of Mary's background she always knew when a break was needed and how to re-focus him when he'd tend to waiver. He came away from every session stimulated and I could see his gaining confidence in the knowledge of the subject. Her suggestion of having the sessions in a non-traditional setting se
