About Mary

I'm a licensed K-6 public school teacher in Virginia. I recently retired from Henrico County Public Schools where I taught first for one year and fourth for ten years. I use hands-on-learning activities to teach skills in a way that is fun and engaging for students. A good deal of my work has been with struggling students. I'm flexible, positive, cheerful, and easy to work with. I'm a licensed K-6 public school teacher in Virginia.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a current Virginia PreK-6 teaching license. I'm currently teaching first grade in Henrico County, and taught fourth grade for the previous 10 years.

Grammar

I have an undergraduate degree in English and Elementary Education. Correct English grammar has been important to my success in graduate school (MBA) and my career as an Individual Grants Manager at the Ford Foundation and a teacher in Henrico County.

Phonics

My license by the state of Virginia to teach k-6 implies that I am certified to teach phonics. I taught first grade which included teaching beginning, middle and ending consonant and vowel sounds, and their various spellings. I also taught forth grade which also included more complex sounds and spellings. This instruction was delivered during reading and word study.

Made learning fun and easy to understand

Worked on math skills with our 11 year old. Really helped him grasp the concept, all while he was enjoying it. He looked forward to his tutor sessions. Mary also helped him with homework from other subjects. She is always upbeat, pleasant and professional. Would highly recommend!
