About Mary

Dear students,
I am very impressed with your aim to improve your skills through WyzAnt Tutoring. I have extensive experience in education in Britain, Jamaica, and the US, from kindergarten to college level. I was raised with an inquiring and creative mind, knowing no boundaries. Throughout my education and business career my experiences have covered many duties and responsibilities from ground floor to management level. Within education, my passion for achievement of successful student outcomes, targeting the needs of diverse groups, including children in poverty stricken areas, and underachieving pupils, has been embedded in my career. I have continually used my creativity in presentations and strategies to overcome barriers along the way, and take different learning styles into consideration. My experience has covered classroom teaching, individual and group support for children and young people, training for staff in schools, curriculum development and working with parents and community organizations. I am the author of a Novel-Shackles and Webs. I also ran a non-profit company, The Mahoe Enterprises, that I set up to support children failing in the system. I have organized events and conferences and trained young people to do presentations and put over messages to other young people and staff members. This has been done by identifying and dealing with sensitive issues through drama, art and music. The feedback I have had from the young people has been impressive. I received an award for supporting young people into training.

We came back to the US in 2009, and I discovered that my teacher-related qualifications abroad are not recognized here. I had a Qualified Teacher Status in the UK. However, I did not want anything to hold me back, and I have now completed my BSc Degree in Psychology, with the University of Phoenix. Since returning to the US I have I held several positions in the education field whilst obtaining my degree. I am currently working as a substitute teacher.

I trust you can see my unique experience in education, and I emphasize that I am willing to adapt the way I teach to meet individual needs. Helping you to reach your goals is my top priority!

Subject areas:
English as an additional Language {EAL}
English in the Primary Curriculum

I look forward to hearing from you. Within ourselves we have so much potential and skills that are waiting to emerge and empower ourselves and others to move on with life. Being able to express our thoughts verbally, and in our writing, is an essential part of this process, and I encourage students to contact me and learn more about how they can improve their written and verbal skills, and use them to reach their goals in life.
