Mary Ellen Jones, -All Elementary Subjects. Middle and High School English and Social Studies!

I have over 30 years experience working with students. I have taught Grades 7-12 in the classroom, been a high school guidance counselor and have 12 years tutoring experience both in home and online. I enjoy tutoring all age groups because tutoring individually allows me the time to see where the student is struggling and help the student understand how to conquer whatever is holding them back. There is no better feeling as a teacher than seeing the light in a student's eyes when they "get it!". It is like they have conquered a demon. I believe fear of failure is a big deterrent and giving the student a positive experience will help them gain the confidence they need to succeed. I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities. I have tutored from PreK through adults studying for their GED and other exams. I have worked with high school students to prepare for the SAT and ACT and also college students studying for the MAT, GRE and other field specific exams. I love a challenge and I enjoy teaching a 6 year old who can't figure out the difference between "b" and "d" as much as a College Senior who is studying to enter Law school. It is fulfilling to know that I can help students achieve their goals.
If you are interested, I am also a Mom of three sons, and a grandmother of 6...4 boys and 2 girls, so I definitely spend a lot of my time with kids. Feel free to contact me with questions at anytime during my time with your child.
