About Mary Carolyn

I am a member of the Stanford class of 2019, studying Classics. As a homeschool student, I started studying Latin at a young age, and it quickly became my greatest academic passion. For several years, I competed in many Latin and Greek-related contests, winning national awards for my proficiency in the Classics. Early on, I started coaching and tutoring less advanced students, and found the experience both enjoyable and rewarding. Helping people understand and excel where understanding and excellence seemed impossible--this has driven me to seek every opportunity to help others academically, as I find great joy and fulfillment in doing so.

For the two years, before I started at Stanford, I took classes at a local college, where I worked as a peer tutor of both Latin and Math, and also worked as an independent contractor with Varsity Tutors. The students I have tutored thank me again and again for helping them enjoy and succeed in what was often their worst class. When tutoring, I learn about the student's strengths and weaknesses, which I then use to create a unique method of learning for each person. I am ready to work at whatever pace is necessary for the student to fully grasp not only the right answer, but why it is right and how to achieve it with more ease. Learning is a journey, and I hope to help make it one full of wonder and excitement.

11 years of studying Latin, Classics major, winner of NJCL classics awards.

Research assistant to Stanford Classics department chair, 2 years of on-campus employment at Stanford's career resources center, editor for Stanford's classics undergraduate research journal.

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.

Bible Studies

I took two semesters of courses in Scripture study (Old testament, then New Testament) at a local Catholic College as a senior in High school. The courses included mainly Catholic interpretations as well as comparative interpretations from other Faiths. I have read extensively from both the bible and commentaries, and I have attended lectures while at Stanford on various aspects of religious studies, Faiths, and the Bible.
