About Mariah

Hello!

My love for teaching and tutoring is tied to my penchant for knowledge and learning. I completed three years of study in Comparative Languages and Linguistics at a small liberal arts college, and I am currently continuing my education in linguistics and translation independently. I am an experienced writing consultant with a background in editing academic writing. I worked in the writing center of my college as an editor and a research coach in a variety of subjects, including literature, science, and creative writing.

My areas of focus are ESL, writing and reading. I like to work with my students to improve their overall writing skills, reading comprehension, and grammar. A big part of this involves working to develop each writers' individual voice and confidence.

In addition, I tutor Japanese at all levels (beginning, intermediate, and advanced), and, if there is interest, I will teach introductory courses to individual students. I have studied Japanese for nine years and have five years tutoring experience. I have taken courses on teaching Japanese in the classroom and worked as a student teacher in a intensive summer course.

All tutoring sessions are goal-oriented and feedback based. I will plan lessons based on the most immediate areas of concern.

I'm available for online tutoring everyday 10am to 12am and in person 10am-6pm. My base rate is $35/hr for online and $45/hr for commute. I'm always willing to be flexible if need be.

I'm looking forward to learning with you!

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.

Japanese

I have studied Japanese for nine years, and I have several years experience tutoring my peers throughout my studies. In college, I tutored all levels (beginning, intermediate, and advanced) with the approval of the Japanese Studies Department. I also took several courses in "Teaching Japanese." Here, I taught one class a week in order to practice teaching methods.

In the summer of 2013, I was invited by the Japanese Studies Department to be an assistant teacher at the college's Explore-a-College summer program. The three week program is an intensive language and culture course for prospective college students. I taught alongside the professor,graded homework and tests, and lead the afternoon culture lesson.

Writing

I have always had an affinity for writing, and I received several letters of commendation for English while in high school. In college, I worked in the writing center as a consultant. In this role, I was available to my peers as an editor and mentor. The tutoring process for each student was different, but we generally focused on grammar, mechanics, essay/story structure, and proper citation.
