About Mary

Hi there!!

I'm hoping to be your next tutor! I like for my tutoring sessions to be lively and interesting, while still going at a pace that isn't too fast or too slow. I like to fully understand from the get-go what level my students are at and exactly what they are hoping to achieve.

I have tutored a variety of subjects in the past, mostly related to English and Spanish. I believe that continuous use is one of the most important keys to progressing in any language, even the language of one's birth. My first ever tutoring job was helping a high school junior progress in his Spanish II class. We used both the lessons in class and other information to help him understand what was being taught and understand how to use it. I worked in harmony not only with his parents but also with his Spanish teacher to make sure we were on the right track, and I was happy to see him make good progress.

I have also worked as an English tutor, helping people whose first language was not English work on not only their grammar and spelling but also their pronunciation, as well as idioms and expressions so that they could easily communicate and sound more like a native speaker. I love the English language and working with it is a joy of mine.

I also enjoy subjects like social studies and history, and I love making those subjects come alive and see how they connect to the present day.

If you choose me as a tutor, I will work tirelessly to make sure that you feel you're receiving the best service ever and that you truly make progress in whatever subject you need help with.

I look forward to hearing from you!! :-)

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary Math

I've worked with a number of students in the past in elementary math and I currently have one student who has recently moved from elementary to middle school math as well.

ESL/ESOL

I spent 6 years in South America, 3 of which were devoted to working with ESL students so as to improve their English. When I return to the US, I worked for 1 year with an online company teaching English as a second language to a variety of students, both on an individual level and in group settings, and I worked with teenagers and adults from a variety of educational and employment backgrounds.

Spanish

I lived in South America for 6 years and studied Spanish in school for 4 years, giving me the advantage of both understanding the grammar and structure of Spanish as well as the need for conversation and practice.
