I enjoy working with students of all age levels and grade levels. One year, I worked with seniors, 2nd graders and 9th graders all in the same week for the entire school year. My strengths are reading, writing, grammar, and reading comprehension in English, Spanish and French. I also enjoy helping my students develop study skills and prepare for tests and examinations. I grew up in South America and have lived in Europe and Eurasia. Please let me help your child improve his grammar, listening and reading skills. Finally, several of my students were learning disabled (hearing impaired, ADD/ADHD) and I believe I made a difference in their lives as they did in mine.

I charge a monthly additional hour per student for research, preparation and materials as needed. Group rates are negotiable. Holiday hours are 1 1/2 times regular rate.
I can NOT say enough about Mary...She is amazing, patient, efficient, capable, beyond educated. She is the teacher that every parent would hope & dream of for their child. She goes beyond what the "normal" expectations are for a teacher/tutor. I do not know how we got so incredibly lucky to have Mary enter into our lives at this crucial time in our daughter's life. I am so incredibly grateful to her & what she has done for us!
Mary is an fantastic tutor. She is very patient and has helped my daughter tremendously. We have seen a good improvement in my daughters, reading and writing ability.
Mary has been a true blessing for my son! She goes above and beyond and then some! Thanks Mary J.
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.
I was trained to work with autistic students at the Kingsbury Center in Washington, D.C. and have worked with several autistic children. I am familiar with the many dispensations to allow students to function more comfortably in a classroom environment such as special time allowance for work completion; allowing the student to create his or her own work station/schedule, etc. I am a very patient and dedicated instructor and would be happy to work with autistic students.
My students liked to use the "Explode the Code" workbooks and other primary workbooks to improve their reading, writing and spelling. Learning to read and write can be fun and exciting! You get to keep your workbooks and notebooks to show how much progress you are making and to help you throughout the school year. There are lots of fun math games that we play also. I have a library of fun books to read that I am eager to share with you, such as "Clarence the Lion" and "The 40,000 Balloons." I hope to hear from you soon!
I am fluent in Spanish and French and am actively tutoring in both languages at this time. I have taught Spanish and am also certified in English, reading and reading comprehension. I tutor in these subjects at both the elementary and high school level as well.
I am a certified tutor from the Kingsbury Center in Washington, DC. The certification uses a method that teaches reading, writing, grammar and speech through phonics and phonetics. I have worked with students from grades 2 though 12 to help them improve their reading comprehension and writing skills. This method works very well and is lots of fun also! I would like the opportunity to work with you and show you an easier and better way to learn to read and write!
I received my certification to work with students with learning disabilities at The Kingsbury Center in Washington D.C. In addition to working with the student's teachers and parents to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP), I have used tools to facilitate the learning process such as working with the teacher to come up with accommodations like recording a lesson for students with attention/auditory problems, breaking tasks into smaller steps and giving the student more time to finish school work or take tests. I have a large amount of writing, reading and math games to help children focus and learn while having fun at the same time!
It is important to develop proper study skills early and that is something I enjoy very much. My students use a large calendar and notebook to keep track of their homework, tests and other special projects. Also, we create a unique school work space at home that is comfortable for the student and that helps him or her stay organized and prepared for assignments throughout the school year. I hope I can help you during this school year!
