My name is Mary, and I am an (adult) third culture kid, which has allowed me to learn a lot about cultures and languages throughout my life. Everyone that knows me knows I love languages--all of them. I love the way they express people's worldviews and cultures and I love the way peoples' worldviews and cultures are shaped by them. I am a certified ESL tutor, have a Bachelor of Arts in English, another in Biblical Studies/Biblical Languages and am in the last three courses of a Master of Arts...

Mary helped my son prepare for a Latin test over Labor Day weekend on short notice. She went out of her way to make room for him in spite of the holiday weekend. She spent the time needed and made sure she assessed his needs and baseline learning skills. Her plan took everything needed into account. My son, who had struggled with Latin from the first day of school, went into his test confident and came out with a good grade. Mary is a gem!

I knew my daughter was nervous heading into tutor lessons, Mary was extremely knowledgeable, patient and was able to put my daughter at ease. Thank you

I really liked this tutor. I was able to meet with her online and in person. She was very patient and able to repeat or explain things in a different way when I was having trouble understanding a concept. I had taken a Beginning Spanish 1 class in college but it had been about three years since I took it. I am now returning to school and taking Beginning Spanish 2. I hardly remembered anything from Spanish 1. I only had six weeks to review everything, and I was very concerned about getting through all of Spanish 1 material within that time. But she was able to look at the syllabus and teach me the whole semester's worth of material within that short time. Now that I have been in my Spanish 2 class a few weeks, I am actually one of the only students who is not struggling with the material. I was impressed with the structure and commitment this tutor gave me. And she even said I could contact her with further individual questions even after we were no longer working together. I also think it's good that she does an initial session where she takes time to find out about you and your learning styles, before she actually starts tutoring. That way, she can be more helpful since she knows how you work best. I would definitely use her again.

I have been using other sources to assist me with my learning process but without Mary in my corner I would be spinning my wheels. I look forward to a long and successful year with Mary at my side.

Mary has been such a blessing for our son. He has a writing disability and an anxiety disorder. She modifies her lesson as she goes based on whether he is feeling stressed or more in control. It is more important to her that he internalizes the material and feels confident in the skills rather than pushing too hard in order to check off all portions of her lesson plan. Mary is comfortable asking questions about my child, his interests, and his learning style so that her lessons are engaging and fun. My boy is active and has a fantastic visual memory, so she routinely uses color-coding of spelling patterns to help bolster his weak spelling skills. She also invents active games to practice spelling skills. This is so beneficial because research shows that the more sections of the brain are utilized in acquiring a skill, the more permanent the knowledge will be. Mary is patient, kind, and easily approachable with any questions or comments we have. It is evident that she invests quite a bit of time in her lessons and she cares about her students. I give her five stars!

I met Mary for my first tutoring session at a local bookstore. She was almost 30 minutes late, but she had called me to let me know so I didn't mind as much. I think Mary's approach in tutoring has merit. She asks students to read questions out loud, which helps the student catch an issue his/her self. I found this very effective. However, I was very unimpressed with her ability to actually explain concepts, particularly algebra and more conceptual math. It was hit or miss - either she explained it very well, or it was very very difficult to understand what she was trying to teach. She seemed to lack confidence in her tutoring and I left the session more confused than not. After thinking about the lesson for a while, I decided not to continue my tutoring with her. I think her personal tutoring style (mostly auditory) and my learning style (visual) conflicted. Still, Mary was very pleasant and professional.
