About Mary

I believe that I am the Tutor for you. My extensive experience in English, special education and curriculum development make me a strong teacher and tutor. I have been working as a teacher in special education for nine years. I have taught diverse groups of students with ADD/ADHD, autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities, speech impairments, and non compliant behavior. My skills in differentiated instruction, assistive technology, and multi-sensory sensitive lesson planning allow me to meet the needs of every student. If you do not understand it one way I have many other ways of explaining and exploring it until you do understand it. I work closely with each student, providing the individualized support and praise they require. I also make sure to stay connected with family members and any specialists involved, to encourage the success of each student. I’ve truly appreciated and learned from every student and family I have worked with.
I have a Bachelors Degree in English. I have taught High School English I, II, III, & IV for the last 7 years. Those same seven years I have increased reading levels more than 2 median from the beginning point for over 90% of my students. With my simple suggestion you too can have success. For nine years I have been actively working with students that are under the umbrella of Autism, Specific Learning Disability, and Emotional Disturbance primarily. So I have a vast amount of techniques, suggests, methods, and ideologies to try until we come upon the one that works for You. My experience also helps me narrow down what might work for you based off of how much information you are willing to share with me.
My attentiveness and sensitivity ;some need tough, some need gentle, to student needs helps to build their self-esteem and comforts them so that they can learn. I am effective in handling difficult situations. I am frequently called 'Firm yet loving.' My outstanding interpersonal communication results in a cooperative engendering optimal interaction. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you to discuss how my extensive experience and skills would contribute to your Learning.

Thank you for your consideration.

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.
