About Mary

After graduating from St. Joseph’s College in January 2011 with Honors, I have been employed by the Miller Place School District. This past summer I completed my Masters of Science in TESOL with a certificate in ESOL k-12. Additionally, I have tutored students of all ages. I volunteered at Literacy Suffolk and worked with two students at Stony Brook teaching them English as a Second Language. I have over 20 years experience in the retail banking industry, which has reinforced my professionalism when communicating with customers in both verbal and written responses. I would love to share my skill set with students who are returning to college as non-traditional students, with professionals who need to enhance their written and verbal skills, and with English Language Learners who wish to learn or hone their speaking, reading, writing, listening skills.

It is important to also mention that I have raised and taught three children who excelled during their academic careers attending colleges like The Honors College at Stony Brook University and Boston University, both with generous scholarships. My youngest child, who graduated this year and now attends UNC Chapel Hill, initiated her own not-for-profit water organization in Bolivia. This gave me first-hand experience with project based learning and its impact on shaping future academic and career goals.

Attaining my teaching degree is one of the highlights of my life. Because of this personal achievement, the ability to share my passion for English, TESOL, and literature with students has become my lifetime goal. Having a plan as an adult which continually includes intellectual growth will support my goals now and my future aspiration which is to someday teach in another country. Presently, I wish to teach in a a profession that supports diversity, with a priority to educate all students regardless of their perceived abilities to learn. I consider myself a problem solver who loves a good challenge.

Currently, I am available on Monday mornings till 1pm and in the evenings after 5pm. I can work at different paces whether it is at a beginner level or more advanced. I have mentored, and taught all types of students of all different ages. I have facilitated classes and trained employees while in the banking industry. I have taught in the middle school working with 7th and 8th grade students. I have tutored Honor students and struggling students for different school districts.
