Academic Generalist, Reading Specialist

I hired Mary as Learning Coach for my homeschooling son. She provides a balance of supervision and tutoring on 12th grade English and Social Studies. She immerses herself in the material by receiving copies of his books, and keeps him on track. At the same time, she teaches reading skills as foundation for success.
