About Mary

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and a teaching license in Special Education. I have over 10 years experience working with special need students from birth to adulthood. My professional history includes work experience in a mental health agency, non profit group homes and a wilderness treatment facility, as well as 3 teaching positions-all in Special Education with middle school to high school students, both in the general curriculum and separate setting. However, I can work with the elementary population based upon my own children who are 5 and 6 respectively and both have ADHD as well.

I have a love of helping teach children, adolescents and young adults to skills necessary to succeed in life. I struggled myself in school with undiagnosed ADHD and reading difficulties. It was not until recently that I was diagnosed, to help within my professional career. I know first hand the strategies that a student with ADHD may use to overcompensate from a learning difficulty. The learning difficulty could be as simple as just learning differently then others.

Currently, I teach high school Inclusion Math and English as well as Study Skills in Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools.

I have a very hands on style of teaching, will get involved and teach to each student based on their learning style.

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 7 years' experience teaching special education with North Carolina Department of Education. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and a teaching license in Special Education.

I've worked with several students with ADD/ADHD in and out of the classroom to manage their ADD/ADHD with my work experience as a mental health professional.

Dyslexia

I have 7 years' experience teaching special education students with specific learning disabilities for North Carolina Department of Instruction. Dyslexia is a common issue with students identified as SLD.

My husband also has Dyslexia and I have first hand experience working with him on reading strategies.

I just recently became trained in IMSE Comprehensive Orton-Gillingham.

I am able to identify reading difficulties stemming from phonics due to being trained in IMSE Comprehensive Orton-Gillingham training. This is a foundational 5 day training to examine reading deficits and challenges at the phonic reading level. I am also a certified special education teacher.

I have taught study strategies and skills throughout my entire professional career, specifically I am teaching 2 study skills courses employed with Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools.
