Beth was able to get my son on track in writing his important college essays. She motivated him but did not micro manage him. She helped him to get his thoughts on paper and organized. She allowed him to shine and express himself through his work and her guidance. At the same time having him be responsible for his deadlines. She was very flexible with her schedule and where to meet. She offered my son support via email as well as face to face tutoring. My son did not only learn how to write an essay, but also gained confidence in his writing and in his ability to meet deadlines.

""Make English Fun!" Tutor"
Engaging in activities that teach concepts and skills makes learning fun! I like to compare learning to write with learning to drive. Remember when you slipped behind the wheel and put the key into the ignition? You knew to do so because you watched adults for many years before you were of driving age. Writing is similar--you know to use a utensil and paper or a computer to compose, but you might be unsure what to do after that. Let me help you learn and master the rules and signs and take co... ... More
Mary has played an important role in my educational process. With her help I passed the TOEFL test. During a test, I was very cogent in answering questions. As a result, I received 90% on writing section.
I had 15 hours with Ms. Mary. Within this short time she did a fabulous work with me. With her unique method of teaching, she gave me directions how to develop my reading, listening, writing and speaking skills. Especially, I was amazed about her method on a essay writing. Ms.Mary helped me to interpret my essay from my point of view. She explained techniques on how to structure an essay. My teacher, also, offered me several exercises how to build my speech which I enjoyed doing a lot. Ms. Mary challenged me to think critically about improving my diction as well as my usage of grammar. She corrected my pronunciation issues.
Ms. Mary is a high level professional and dedicated teacher. I felt comfortable during her lessons. I would recommend her for both, beginners and high level of English learners. I have never met person with such of rich vocabulary. Working with Mary improved my confidence in learning English.

"Dynamic Coach who ferrets out a student's positive learning attributes"
I have worked with Attention Deficit and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder elementary students in the Clear Creek Independent School District (League City, Texas) as a substitute teacher-of-the-day.

I consulted the school district via computer each weekday, deciding which grade level and class to assist. Sometimes, I had five choices, other times, two. I have worked with all levels of elementary pupils, including classes with 24 or 3 ... More
My son has had a hard time in chemistry for a while and Renee is the first person who sees his potential. She has a lot of experience with the subject and that gives me more confidence in her helping my child grasp the information. She related well with him and came prepared to get down to work. She also offered us advice on handling the issues with the teacher and the school.
