I have been a private tutor for almost fifteen years. My students are often college or graduate students with English as their second language. For these students I have provided a cultural and conceptual bridge between cultures. I also have experience coaching community college students with all writing assignments, including applications for scholarships. If working on Art History papers or test preparation, I am open to museum visits for enrichment purposes as I have spent much of my life visiting the great art museums of the world in order to learn about culture, history, and aesthetics. It would be my pleasure to share my knowledge with a new group of students. I am also comfortable with literature papers and history assignments. My students have shown great improvements after working with me. In addition to traditional tutoring services I have also provided coaching for college and job interviews.
My approach to tutoring is based on the particular needs of the student. Through active listening I am able to discern and pinpoint both immediate and long-term learning objectives in order to make sessions both productive and enlightening. Over the years I have developed organizational and conceptual techniques for term paper writing that save the student precious time and reduce angst. I emphasize the practical while encouraging creativity and imagination. My students become efficient in completing their work in a timely manner and so come to enjoy their academic years.
With enthusiasm and appreciation, it is an honor to write this review for Ms. Mary Ann L. As a second language student, I was concerned about finding an English tutor that would be patient with me. I am very lucky to find Ms. Mary Ann. Her expertise in several college subjects makes her a special and well-educated person that can help just about anyone. Ms. Mary Ann is not only knowledgeable about her subject but also, her personality and wisdom in helping others is outstanding. Mary Ann is a friendly, likable, and a fun person to work with, but she is also firm with students at times. She has the ability to serve not only as a tutor, but also as a counselor, motivator, and a great person to rely on. Mary Ann, possesses great work ethics. I highly recommend Ms. L. to any one who needs to improve their research or writing skills. I am looking forward to meet with her again in the Fall.Benita , 8 lessons with Mary Ann

patient and thorough
Maryanne was open and flexible. She helped me increase my vocabulary and reading comprehension. She increased my reading fluency and helped me write essays. Instead of relying on audiobooks, I now parse and annotate books as I read them.Labaron, 15 lessons with Mary Ann
Knowledgeable and patient
Mary Ann is currently working on writing with my child. My child is struggling considerably with writing. Mary Ann and my child have formulated a plan of action to achieve successful mastery in this. She has been only but kind and every patient with us. We were lost the first time searching for the location were we would meet, as a result made us several minutes late but she was extremely understanding. She is very professional, courteous and kind. My daughter and I have only great things to say of Mary Ann. We are extremely excited of our new found gem and look forward to meeting with Mary Ann soon. Thank you Mary Ann!Devi , 13 lessons with Mary Ann

A perfect fit for Anne Marie. Really knows how to connect with the student.
Mary Ann shared her techniques and ideas for starting to get more organized and be more efficient with time. She showed genuine interest in Anne Marie and could really identify with her strengths and weaknesses with different subjects. In 1.5 hours, Mary Ann really motivated my daughter, and encouraged her to move forward with confidence. She is looking forward to her next visit.Lynne, 2 lessons with Mary Ann
