About Mary

I am currently a graduate student at Columbia University, Teachers College where I am pursuing a degree in Clinical Psychology. During my pursuit of this degree I hope to spend as much time tutoring as possible!

Prior to enrolling in this program I was a literacy specialist at underserved middle schools in The Bronx. For three years I worked with students (both in small groups and individually) to bolster their reading skills, solidify their academic confidence, and establish grade-level reading comprehension.

In addition to this, I have worked in a tutoring capacity for over seven years and have particular strengths helping students with SAT and ACT preparation and editing college admissions essays.

Lastly, I have a background in theater, which I use to the best of my ability to make tutoring sessions engaging and dynamic!

While I'm pursuing a degree in Psychology now, literature will always be staunch interest of mine. I was a double English major in college, where I was a tutor for Literature and Philosophy classes.

I am a Princeton Review-trained tutor for the SAT, and have years of experience helping students navigate admissions tests. I also currently work for an organization that specializes in utilizing story telling to help students perfect their college admissions essays.

I love working one on one with students, and aim to help students get as excited about their subjects as I am!

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

Mary was simply great at helping my daughter study for the essay portion of the ACT. I appreciate that she came prompt, prepared and enthusiastic for each lesson. I especially liked how she was able to provide guidance with exercises that helped my daughter get ideas down on paper. It''s pretty obvious that Mary is highly gifted and enjoys what she does. Thanks Mary for all your help!
