Public Speaking

As an experienced public speaker, I can pass along strategies to combat natural feelings of nervousness and anxiety that can accompany the act of giving a speech. During my time spent as a managing editor, I have had to present work to large groups on a regular basis. I can teach you the three "P"s of public speaking--preparation, practice, and presentation--and you'll feel comfortable speaking in front of an audience of two or two thousand.

Great writing, editing, formatting tutor

I needed help with a grad level and paper...editing, APA formatting, etc...Mary knocked it out of the park! She is the best!

Andy , 1 lesson with Mary

Best tutor ever!

She has made me a better writer. She is patient, kind, encouraging, and brilliant. Anyone who choose’s her as a tutor will not regret it. Also, she is flexible and willing to work around your schedule as much as she can.

Mariah, 1 lesson with Mary

Wow! Great

Today was my first meeting with Mary and let’s just say she is the best!!! And her prices are very reasonable considering the market for tutors. This was my first time writing a paper in Chicago press format. I am excited about this semester.

Extremely knowledgeable and excellent tutor.

Mary is helping my son with his college applications and I only wished I had met her a long time ago. She is extremely helpful and intelligent and my son is thrilled to be working with her. She always has a smile on her face and we love this about her.

Knows APA and grammar and editing!

Mary helped me with a paper that had to be written with the APA rules. She was great! The formatting is difficult and she knows it cold. She also helped with grammar, punctuation and word choices.

Pamela, 1 lesson with Mary

My son was really happy with the help Mary gave him for an upcoming PSAT test.

Mary helped my 10th grader improve his approach to ELA sections in an upcoming PSAT. My son learned a lot in one lesson. We look forward to more lessons with Mary!

Professional editor

Mary helped my daughter with her college essays. Mary was able to work with us on a very short notice and turned around quickly to enable my daughter meet a critical deadline. We are also very happy with the suggestions/edits she did. Very professional!
