About Mary

I enjoy teaching and tutoring as it enables knowledge to be grasped and gifts to blossom. I have had the blessing of home educating my three children since 2004 and been able to see how individual attention and focus can help them both with their natural gifts as well as provide the necessary help for those areas of struggle. I have taught in home education co-operative learning environments both elementary students and high school chemistry.

My experience in teaching both at home and in co-operative learning environments as well as working with children in Sunday School classes, Pioneer Clubs and Vacation Bible Schools provide excellent skills in determining the child's learning style, adaptability to children's needs and establishing a lesson plan. Professionally, I have taught new operator training modules.

I specialize in Jr High/High School Math and Sciences as well as all Elementary subjects. I have a Bachelors of Chemical Engineering degree as well as many years of practical application in the engineering field. I enjoy working with children and youth and assisting them in successful learning. My tutoring sessions seek to challenge the students to further grasp concepts but not overwhelm them. I believe that we can move forward when the student grasps a concept quickly and continue to review a concept that they are having trouble understanding while keeping up with new material. I can provide progress reports and assessments as desired by parents.

I would be willing to establish a tutoring schedule that would meet your needs. I would like input from parents and teachers as to problem areas or desires to excel. Seeking to always be improving, I would appreciate feedback. I require a 24 cancellation notice but am willing to provide make-up sessions.

I am willing to tutor in my home or travel to another location. I desire a location that is quiet and free of distractions.

My experience includes teaching Saxon Algebra I, II, Advanced Math (Trig and Pre-Calculus). My college education includes three college semesters of Calculus as well as Engineering Math and Statistics.

My experience includes teaching Apologia Chemistry in Home Education Co-op. College chemistry courses I have completed include General Chemistry, Organic, and Physical Chemistry. Physics tutoring is also an option. I have completed three semesters of College Physics.

As a home education teacher since 2004, I have determined curriculum, taught and graded all subjects. I have experience working with slow readers, phonics based reading, explaining math concepts, and conducting chemistry classes with laboratory.

I look forward to hearing about your tutoring needs and am excited to be a part of your successful future learning.

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.
