About Mary Alice

I LOVE TEACHING! Especially, Spanish and English. My fellow Computer-Tech #501 students at Ashland University were just swinging from the proverbial chandeliers when I turned my Final into an exhilarating PowerPoint Spanish Lesson!

One student, getting her fourth degree before returning to China, shouted out, "If I'd known Spanish was THIS much fun I'd never have quit it!"

My 210+ St. Mary's K-8TH graders knew and were built up, stirred up and cheered up by the fun and exciting, refreshing and innovative way I taught each lesson. I am very patient, personable, knowledgeable, and kind. This helps each of my students aim high and excel; whatever their age or aptitude.

HIGHLIGHTS:
I have the keen ability to rapidly isolate, identify and pull down learning barriers that have prevented some from quickly succeeding! Contact me. You'll be glad
you did!

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.

Reading

I've taught many students from K-College. And in 3-different languages. And I've found it's true: "Reading-Is-FUN-damental"!

It's SO important that I have most of my students of foreign-languages reading by the time they have their 3RD Lesson. And, they are just too thrilled with their accomplishments and the EASE at which they've learned AND understood it all.

I've worked with students in and outside of U.S.A. and obtained my "Assault-On-Illiteracy" Certification. Contact me ASAP.

Special Needs

Worked as S.T.N.A. and one-on-one with child-
ren and Seniors -- nearly ALL levels of care.
Through kindness, care and understanding (and
a little listening) about 90% of them showed
marked, if not amazing, improvement!

These facts were attested to by the families AND primary and secondary care-givers.

Study Skills

Spear-headed a couple of major fund-raisers to benefit children w/ SPECIAL NEEDS/AUTISM.

Worked as an S.T.N.A.in nursing homes, hospi-
tals and community agencies and schools in 3-counties -- Most patients and clients showed remarkable results and amazing improvement in their physical condition & mental outlook

Vocabulary

Beginning at age 3 or 4 I loved words and books. That grew into the study the basics of H.S. Latin, which greatly helped me with English!
When I took SPEED-READING, it made a huge difference in ALL of my other subjects.

I always got excellent grades in English vocabulary, grammar, Honors English classes in high school. All of those skills led to my winning several Writing Competitions, Scholarships and Foreign Language Declamation Contests.even before I went to Kent State University's Main Campus.

Spanish and French taught me that ALL languages have m a n y, many things in common.
