Bio

I am a tutor with a passion for helping students achieve success in mathematics. Whether your child is struggling with basic concepts, needs extra practice, or is preparing to take the ACT, I will work with the student to generate an individualized plan to enhance skills, promote confidence, and lessen math anxiety. I routinely have students who raise their math grade, increase their ACT math score, and reduce their stress regarding mathematics.

I am a tutor with a passion for helping students achieve success in mathematics. Whether your child is struggling with basic concepts, needs extra practice, or is preparing to take the ACT, I will work with the student to generate an individualized plan to enhance skills, promote confidence, and lessen math anxiety. I routinely have students who raise their math grade, increase their ACT math score, and reduce their stress regarding mathematics.

My tutoring sessions are planned specifically for each student, depending on his or her needs. Before each session, I review the weekly assignments posted on your school’s website. Generally, sessions begin with helping your student complete homework while addressing any difficulties and/or gaps in knowledge. Next, we review for upcoming quizzes and tests. Finally, if necessary, we practice basic skills such as mental math or facts fluency to help alleviate any math anxiety.

ACT Math,

ACT Math

The ACT math test is difficult to master because of the variety of problem types. My approach to tutoring the ACT Math is by first explaining the algebraic way to solve the problem. After the student is confident in their algebra skills, I show them faster and easier ways to solve the problem because of the ACT math time restraints. These two methods, in addition, to a sufficient amount of practice, will help students reach their ACT goals.

Thorough, encouraging, successful results

Mary was a great tutor. She met twice a week with our daughter to tutor all subjects of the ACT and her school subjects as well. After the first few lessons her ACT score increased 4 points and she achieved a 4.0 GPA which she has maintained since. Mary was very detailed, organized, and thorough. She was encouraging and her lessons covered all the subjects our daughter needed assistance in. Our daughter did not want to end the sessions because she was going to miss her study time with Mary. I highly recommend Mary.

Lea, 12 lessons with Mary

Mary is an excellent tutor, and also very patient.

We mostly covered geometry in our first session and went over practice problems involving Pythagorean theorem and using formulas. She took it step by step and gave great advice on how to solve a problem.

Marisa , 6 lessons with Mary

Mary is a great tutor

Mary is helping me prepare for the Praxis 5001 math portion. She is knowledgeable about what is on the test and helped me with ways to remember formulas which I will need to know.

Resourceful and Caring Tutor

Mary taught me the skills needed for Praxis Elementary Ed. I engaged in 5 lessons with Mary after taking the test 4 times. After weekly math tutoring sessions, I passed my test! She gave me several different resources to used outside of sessions. During session she provided a very caring, encouraging, and creative approach to learning Math.
