About Mary

I am a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania who graduated with honors from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and minors in Chemistry, Political Science, and History. While in high school, I scored above the 95th percentile on the SAT and have since then tutored all 3 SAT subject areas, as well as a wide range of middle school, high school, and college courses. I specialize in math, science, and the social sciences and have successfully helped many students improve their grades, become comfortable with the material, and gain confidence in their abilities.

I am dedicated to my tutoring and committed to all of the responsibilities that come with it, always seeking to give my best to my students and help them achieve their highest potential. My tutoring methods vary depending on the subject being taught and age of the student, but will always stress true understanding of the material being learned, beyond a superficial grasp or simple memorization.

My goal is to provide students with knowledge that will not only help them get an A in the course or perform well on the exam, but will also serve as a good foundation for future studies. I have achieved these goals successfully with past students and look forward to doing the same for future students that I tutor.

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.

Chemistry

I minored in chemistry at the University of Miami and have extensive experience tutoring this subject successfully at both the high school and college level.

Spanish

As a native speaker of Spanish, I studied both the language and literature at the college level.
