MaryI've been teaching for a long time, and I've discovered how much of a positive influence I can have on a student. I have the power to set students up for life of success. I believe every student deserves the opportunity to learn skills they can use throughout their lives. I enjoy helping students learn material and develop critical thinking skills so they can apply knowledge independently. I tutor writing, essays, literature, English grammar, ESL, government and politics, history, critical reading, social studies, special education, and test preparation for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, and others. When I have free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, cooking, eating good food, traveling, meeting people, experiencing new cultures, and reflection.

JustinI have a BA in Philosophy from the University of Chicago, and I am now completing a graduate degree in Philosophy at the University of New Mexico - Main Campus. My goal is to eventually work towards a PhD.

I have a lifelong passion for my personal education and learning, and I hope to bring that passion to my pupils. While assisting students with their classes is very important, it is also important that students learn the critical thinking skills that are essential to both coursework and test prep.
