About Mary

I have experience in teaching middle school and high school math. I grew up in the area and then went to Earlham College in Indiana (state of) for both my bachelor's (mathematics) and master's (teaching). I taught for 6 years in Indiana doing 7th, 8th, Algebra 1, and high school online courses. I currently teach algebra 1 and geometry.

I love to work with students individually or in small groups and explain the concepts so that they understand. I believe that knowing why the answer is 6 is much more important that just that the answer is 6. This is because then the knowledge can be transferred to another problem.

I am able to work evenings and weekends. I prefer to meet in a public space. I meet in the Carlisle, Chambersburg, and McConnelsburg areas.

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.

I have taught PreAlgebra for over 6 years. I have both taught in a classroom setting and tutoring individual and group students. I focus on the key concepts of each unit and build up student confidence before tackling harder problems.

Study Skills

I have worked with students in grades 6 - 12 in creating better study habits. I focus on what the student needs in order to be successful. Some tactics that I have taught successfully in the past include note taking, creating a better study environment, creating to-do lists to focus tasks, teaching students how to "chunk" assignments into more manageable pieces, and several different ways of studying for quizzes and tests.

Mary is a great instructor.

Mary is tutoring my 14 year old daughter. My daughter is comfortable with her teaching methods and styles and feels that she is quite helpful in making her understand what needs to be done and why. I am eager to chart my daughter's progress in the long term. Thank you for the assistance.
