About Mary


Bio

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...

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!
