I’m a 2011 Boston College graduate with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in philosophy. My diverse course load exemplifies my curiosity, love of learning, and ability to analyze a vast range of complex subject matter.
I have over ten years of experience as a trusted babysitter of children ranging in ages from infancy to teen. In high school and college, I tutored my peers in Math and Physics, and have been tutoring younger students in Math, Science, English/Writing, and French (both course material and test prep) for the past 5 years. I genuinely enjoy working with students to help them reach their fullest potential. Every student is different and so is every one of my lessons.

Mary is wonderful. She is very bright and reliable. She comes organized for the tutoring sessions, keeps the lessons interesting, and is also great at keeping my child focused.
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.
I tutor many young students (7th and 8th graders) in math and science. I am well versed in teaching pre-Algebra and complex fractions and equations to math students and in teaching the scientific method to science students. I put a strong emphasis on the vocabulary associated with the subject matter that I'm teaching, so that the students have a strong foundation for upper level courses when they reach high school.
I worked closely with a student with ADHD for 18 months, and much of our time together was spent on study skills. He was a very intelligent young man and didn't need too much help in any of his subjects conceptually, but did need help prioritizing his time and learning how to make and use study aids. I effectively raised his report card averages from the mid 70s to the low 90s.
