About Mara

Hi!
I'm Mara, and I look forward to meeting with you and your student to discuss and strategize how they can improve in their reading comprehension and writing skills.
I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Rochester and began coursework for a Masters of Science in teaching social studies at the Warner School for Education and Human Development. I have been working as a private tutor in Brooklyn for the past year, and have extensive experience as a teaching assistant and high school academic advisor for students grades 7 - 12. As an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant for an Introductory Anthropology Course. Following graduation, I worked for an after school program as an Americorps. Service Member in Rochester, New York. There, I provided academic support for middle and high school public school students, which included extensive college preparation and instruction. Working one-on-one with them in these capacities allowed me to develop goal plans to help them improve in their academic work. Based on this experience, I trust I can provide strong support for your student to develop learning strategies with respect to their individual learning styles. My strengths are in English, Social Studies and college essay writing. I am also proficient in Spanish based on 7 years of study and extensive time abroad, as well as Calculus which I completed successfully in high school and college. I am an extremely patient, kind and relaxed young person with significant abilities to build rapport with adolescents to accomplish their goals. Please feel free to inquire more about my experience, availability and qualifications.

Best regards,
Mara C.
