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.

Subjects

Architecture,

Architecture

I have had extensive academic experience in the study of architectural history from ancient to modern and contemporary periods. I have also tutored graduate level architectural students in architectural history and theory classes. These sessions required extensive reading of related materials and analysis of complex, philosophical issues related to architecture. I had the opportunity to coach one student at Rice University through an entire academic year. This consisted of three meeting per week for the required time period. I currently tutor an architectural student at least twice weekly for architectural theory and history classes.

Film

I have an undergraduate degree in Art History from Fordham University in NYC and a Masters in Art History from University of Saint Thomas in Houston. I recently completed a course in American Westerns in Film and Literature. My visual arts degrees required knowledge and analysis of classic European, American, and some Japanese films.

I have been working with English test prep and writing students for fifteen years. Most of my students have English as their second language but many are native speakers. Most are college level.

History

Classics,

Classics

I have had years of study in Greek and Roman Art History at the graduate and undergraduate levels. As part of my degree from Fordham University I was required to study Ancient Greek philosophy from the pre Socratics to Plato to Aristotle. I have also had exposure to Neo Platonism through Plotinus and Italian Rennaisance Art History. I was required to read Heroditus, Thucidyus, Josephus, Eusebius, and other Classical historians throughout my academic career and I have also read the Greek dramatists, Sophocles, Aristophanes, and Euripedes.
Religion,

Religion

I have graduated from a Jesuit University that required a minimum of three theology courses. As a consequence, I have a comprehensive understanding of the progression of religious history and philosophy in the west. I have also done extensive reading and practice of world religion. I completed an informal course conducted in India which focused on Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
Sociology,

Sociology

I have years of experience tutoring students in sociology and social sciences. I have assisted students in writing term papers with themes such as Criminology, Emile Durkheim and Anomie. My MPH includes Master's level courses in the sociology, economics, and anthropology of health in the US and internationally.
World History,

World History

My world history perspective is grounded in my MLA in Art History. This means that I see world history through a prism of culture and cultural artifacts as well as through chronology. I have an interest in questions about historical truth and the relativity of historical narrative and interpretation. For me, History is a never ending source of exploration of beauty, culture, and human nature.

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!

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.

Always comes prepared

Mrs. L is a professional with a lot of knowledgeable background with her expertise. When I have an assignment that needs to get done she does not waste any time. She knows exactly how to help me understand my assignments more clearly. After every session I become more appreciative and understanding about the Arts and Humanities. I highly recommend her for people that needs help in grammar, develop writing skills, and analyzing essays or the arts.

Help in a pinch and hopefully a successful long-term relationship!

Mary Ann came at the last minute for a first time tutoring. She and My daughter immediately established a positive working rapport and successfully studied for an impending test on Mayan Civilizations and discussed an upcoming research paper. If we can sync our schedules, Mary Ann will be working with my daughter on a regular basis to help her write the research paper and successfully manage her history course.

Michelle, 3 lessons with Mary Ann

Great tutor and very patient.

Mary Ann is an awesome tutor! She helped be better understand what I was struggling with. When we went over World War II she gave me the confidence to help me know that as long as I took my time to present the chronological order of the war I would be set to go. She gave me helpful tips and was constantly engaged in what I had to say. I look forward to more lessons with her and hope everything works out!
