About Mary Ann

I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013. In my last school, I taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, and tutored students for TAKS and STAAR tests. I also taught middle school integrated science at a previous school, and have helped students with organization and study skills. I am certified grades 6-12 for science. Since 2013, I have been tutoring middle and high school students in sciences and math. I retired from teaching middle and high school science with 20 years' experience in 2013.

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.

ACT Science

I have taught biology, chemistry, and physics at the high school level. I have experience in helping students understand the process of taking a standardized, multiple choice test, and my students have improved scores on the science portion of the ACT.

Algebra 1

I have taught Physics for 10 years, using algebra skills and reteaching as students needed help. I have been tutoring in Algebra and Geometry since I retired from teaching in 2013.

Algebra 2

I have tutored in Algebra since retiring from teaching in 2013. I use skills honed in practical applications in Physics to help students understand Algebra concepts. In tutoring, I have learned how to use a graphing calculator to manage difficult tasks such as solving 3 equations with three unknowns using matrices.

Biology

I have taught high school biology and 96% of my students achieved at least a level II pass rating on STAAR.

Chemistry

I have 16 college hours in chemistry with an A in all courses. I have taught chemistry at the high school level for six years. My students have had a high pass rate on standardized tests, including special education and ESL students.

Elementary Math

I enjoy helping students understand the concepts of math and develop number sense that will enable them to do well in math in middle and high school. I have taught middle school and high school sciences, using the math students were learning in math classes in my science classes to reinforce the math and solve problems in science. I have expanded my tutoring to encompass 4th and 5th grade, and 6th grade students who are getting ready for algebra.

English

I have a degree in English and I love to read an eclectic mix of genres. I have had experience with teaching students to read articles and find the important points to discuss and write about in their science classes. I have tutored students in English writing since I retired from teaching.

Geometry

I have used geometry concepts in teaching physics. This involved collaborating with the math teachers in my academy to develop lessons that enabled students to solve physics problems using the math they were studying. This practice kept my math skills current. A student I have been tutoring in geometry had been failing; after five weeks of tutoring, he scored an A on his semester final in Geometry.

Physical Science

I taught middle school science for 7 years and high school physical science another 6 years. I have had courses in physics and chemistry as well as continuing education in teaching to all levels of students, from learning disabled to pre-AP. Labs that enable students to understand concepts are my favorite part of teaching physical science.

Physics

I taught high school physics for the last five years before I retired in 2013. I have many ways of illustrating difficult concepts to help students understand. I have been tutoring in physics since I retired.

Prealgebra

I have worked with students taking pre-Algebra as a teacher and as a tutor. I have an understanding of the concepts and their importance to further math studies, and have used many techniques to help students master the concepts.

She is fantastic!!!

I would highly recommend Mary Ann for anyone looking for a tutor. This is our second school year working with Mary Ann and she has helped with grades 6-9. She has helped the kids raise science/ math and English grades but even more importantly they now have confidence. My 9th grader recently was struggling with a summer reading assignment. Mary Ann was able to help and point her in the right dire
