About Mary

I love to help people succeed in English! As a teacher, my happiest moment is when I help a student to "get it." I especially love it when students go beyond the technical part of the language (having mastered it) to the really good stuff: what language means, what it can do for you, how it can enrich your life.

As a published writer myself, I fully understand the challenges of the blank page. I have helped hundreds of students to get beyond that daunting blank page to write beautiful, unique, interesting work.

I am ready to help you become an independent reader, speaker, writer of English. Your success is my joy.

I am flexible, patient, creative, use many kinds of methods. I am eager to help, but I allow the student to find his/her own pace and voice. I turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones. I put students at ease and make learning fun. I love language! In the classroom, I have taught ages 5 - 85 and grades 6 - 12. I have taught to the Regents, the SAT, the ACT, the PSAT, the TACHS, etc. I have taught students who are below grade level and students who are designated "Honors" and all students in between.

Please contact me with any question you may have. I will make myself available at your convenience.
