About Mary


Bio

I am a former high school and middle school teacher with 34 years of experience having spent the last 16 years of my career teaching English and speech. As a public school teacher, I rarely got to work with students one on one, and it frustrated me because, on the rare occasions when I had time to give a student individual attention, it was obvious that it helped them so much more than when my attention was split among so many students.

I am a former high school and middle school teacher with 34 years of experience having spent the last 16 years of my career teaching English and speech. As a public school teacher, I rarely got to work with students one on one, and it frustrated me because, on the rare occasions when I had time to give a student individual attention, it was obvious that it helped them so much more than when my attention was split among so many students.

I will make an outstanding tutor because I have excellent grammar and writing skills coupled with an extensive knowledge of literature as well as a love of research. At my school, students were required to write research papers every year and I became an expert at helping students accomplish this difficult task. My experience as an SAT test prep coach is also a great asset, as is my experience preparing students for the STAAR tests.

As a retired teacher, I have a very flexible schedule and can work around your busy schedule. Give me a call and let's get started working toward your success!

Public Speaking

For several years during my teaching career, I taught speech communication and public speaking courses. During this time, I also coached students for classroom presentations, public events, and competitions. My background in theater and dance has also proven to be extremely valuable in preparing students for public appearances.
