About Mary

I graduated magna cum laude from U W Milwaukee with A B.S. in Elementary Education. I began teaching in January of 1987. I currently teach at the elementary level.

All of my evaluations throughout the years with various principals have always been in the outstanding category. I am able to not only diagnose what each student needs, but also deliver differentiated instruction to meet these needs.

I use a variety of materials and techniques that I have acquired throughout the years to get results.Helping students grow and achieve academic success is a passion of mine. I look forward to meeting and working with new students.

When I'm not teaching or tutoring you can find me on the ballroom floor dancing up a storm competing or performing. Like teaching, I put my heart ans soul into this to get results.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have had many students with ADD/ ADHD in my classroom over the years. I understand the unique ways and styles of learners with ADD/ADHD. I can offer patience, creativity, and consistency.
I have used activities that incorporate movement along such as Brain Gym with a lot of praise to encourage on task behavior. I keep fidget items on hand to help control the natural tendency of movement and making a good choice form them as not every fidget item is appropriate for every child.
I help with the organization issue by using checklists, graphic organizers, simple directions (verbal, auditory and written) and chunking tasks into manageable tasks.

Ballroom Dancing

Not only I have I done numerous performances on stage doing showcases and solos, I have also competed. In April I competed with my husband at the national level and won Top National Amateur Couple Showcase. I have been dancing for two years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary teacher for nearly thirty years with most of the years teaching 1st, 3rd and 4th. I teach the Common Core. Throughout all of my experience, I have had numerous students with special needs ranging anywhere from ADD/ADHD to being blind, to autism to specific learning disabilities. I know how to reach the struggling learner with activities designed for their unique learning styles.

Phonics

I've taught phonics to early learners for over a decade. I have a strong background in applying these isolated skills into reading fluency. I use a systematic and sequential approach with plenty of practice to unlock the English language. I graduated magna cum laude from U W Milwaukee with A B.S. in Elementary Education. I began teaching in January of 1987. I currently teach at the elementary level.

Study Skills

One of the most useful skills that you need in school is to good study habits. For students to be successful they must learn the process of establishing a goal, and creating and following through on a plan to accomplish that goal. Reaching goals demands a set of skills and habits that I can offer. I graduated magna cum laude from U W Milwaukee with A B.S. in Elementary Education. I began teaching in January of 1987. I currently teach at the elementary level.
