"Hello, my name is Mary. Welcome to my tutoring page!

I have a Bachelor's degree in French and Secondary Education from the State University College at Buffalo. One of the best parts of my college experience was living abroad in Aix-en-Provence France. I can still remember the smell of fresh bread baking as I walked to the University of Aix-Marseille every morning and spending my afternoons with the locals in the café. Through experiences like this, I fell in love with the connection of language and culture.

I continued my study of education by completing my Master's Degree in Reading at the State University College at Buffalo. Having a literacy degree has helped me understand the ways in students effectively learn and develop as language learners. To advance my language learning, I returned to the State university at Buffalo to complete my Spanish degree. I am NYS certified to teach French, Spanish and Reading.

Teaching is my passion! I teach French and Spanish, but I love languages in general. I've been teaching for 25 years, and I have worked with students of all ages. I've worked with small groups in summer school and tutored one on one. I love being able to encourage students, and give them a positive experience learning a language. I get great satisfaction from seeing my students grow in a language, gain confidence and see their grades improve. As a tutor, I work on all four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. This allows the power of communication to come alive for me students. My lessons are effective and creative. I use authentic materials, such as texts, websites, and videos to engage my students. I think learning a language is fun, because it's not just learning grammar. It involves learning about people, culture and other countries. It is like a wonderful adventure!

I've worked with students with a variety of needs. Whatever your difficulties, I can help you become a successful language learner. I'm ready to schedule a time to work with you, so please don't hesitate to con" less...
