About Mary

I have taught high school science for over 30 years. I am certified by the State of Virginia in Chemistry, Physics, and Earth & Space Science. Although my classroom experience has been in the sciences, I am equally comfortable tutoring geometry and algebra, including SAT Prep. Students have told me that I am able to explain and illustrate difficult concepts in everyday terms. If one explanation doesn't work for you, I will find one that does!

I prefer to tutor students in public places such as a library or coffee shop although other arrangements can be made. If you need to cancel an appointment, I would appreciate at least two hours notice. I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you have, and I look forward to hearing from you!

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 have taught and tutored high school math and science for over 30 years. I understand how the abstract nature of algebra can make it a challenge for students. My strength lies in breaking down the difficult concepts and explaining them in understandable terms until they make sense.

Chemistry

I have taught and tutored various levels of chemistry for over 30 years. I know that the abstract concepts and math involved can make chemistry a challenge for students! As a tutor, my strengths are in explaining the abstract ideas in concrete terms, and breaking down the difficult math-related concepts until they make sense.

Geometry

I have taught and tutored high school math and science for over 30 years. I understand how the abstract nature of geometry can make it a challenge for students. As a tutor, my strength lies in breaking down the difficult concepts, and explaining them in understandable terms and ordinary language until they make sense.

SAT Math

I have taught several SAT Prep classes at a local high school, as well as privately tutored students who are getting ready to take the SAT, including Math. It is important to first identify the student's strengths and weaknesses through a variety of different methods. While working on their weaker areas, I will also teach them valuable tips and test-taking strategies in order to maximize their test score.
