About Mary

I consider tutoring to be pure joy! I love it when students finally "get it". This is my full time career and have been tutoring for over 30 years. I am a Texas Certified Secondary Mathematics Teacher with over 12 years of classroom experience. I teach and tutor both public and private school students as well as home-schoolers. I have two children of my own, my oldest daughter is in Bible College in Colorado and my youngest son is a freshmen in high school.

My uncanny ability to "connect" with students, as well as my sense of humor and joy create a calm non-intimidating environment that magnifies their learning potential. By encouraging independence and fostering confidence in their own abilities, I challenge them to build mathematical 'connections" from their own personal knowledge base. By analyzing a problem from various angles, we discover multiple paths to the solution. I encourage students to breakdown a difficult problem into smaller more manageable bite size pieces, and work from "what we know" to establish a strategy. My students are challenged to find and remedy their own mistakes in addition to establishing the reasonableness of an answer. We always "check" our answers. In establishing a "connection" with your child as well as encouraging them to utilize various methods to tackle a problem, I hope to bring about success!

I teach and tutor middle school levels of math, including pre-algebra and algebra. I also love to tutor geometry, as well as some upper elementary math. My goal is to take on students who are struggling either in the upper elementary or middle grades and give them a firm foundation in which to tackle high school and college level mathematics.

If you are "challenged" by math in any way, please contact me. My greatest joy is in being able to help you discover the beauty of mathematics in its many facets. My goal is for you to feel confident enough in your own skills that you will not need my services anymore. With practice, persistence, and patience, we can turn every challenge into a triumph!

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.

Algebra 1

I simply love Algebra and find teaching and tutoring this subject fascinating. I would love to help you overcome any obstacles you have in succeeding in this class. I taught Algebra I for 4 years as a classroom teacher and have LOTS of techniques to help you understand math.
