About Mary

I am a certified English teacher in an area high school and this is my third year teaching grades 9-12. I began tutoring in 2008 for Project Learn of Summit County held at the Akron Library. I loved helping students of all ages learn so much that I decided to pursue education as a career. I received my Master's Degree in December 2012 in Education with a focus on Integrated Language Arts for grades 7-12. I have experience teaching in many area high schools and have continued tutoring as well. I love seeing the student grasp the concept of what they are learning and adjust my teaching according to their needs. I hope to gain more teaching experience as a tutor in order to build upon what I have learned as a teacher. My strength is Language Arts but I also have an undergraduate degree in Theatre Studies.

I enjoy teaching novels and plays by British and American writers. I am skilled in the area of literature (especially Shakespeare), and like helping students understand the writer's intent. I also enjoy teaching students how to improve their writing skills and adhere to proper writing conventions. I love learning new words and expanding the vocabulary of my students.
