Perfect! Mary explains stuff very thoroughly and always makes sure that you are understanding along the way. She has a great amount of patience for any questions you may have or if you are not sure about an example or formula. She has helped me a lot in understanding my notes and solving problems with me. She makes it easier to be able to learn online! I would highly recommend her for Chemistry courses.

My children have found Dr Mary to be very patient, helpful, and motivating. They learnt Math and Physics from Dr Mary and I can confidently say that the tutoring sessions with Dr Mary was an absolutely significant factor in enabling my children to achieve the best grades they received for their math and physics courses. My children will be continuing their tutoring with Dr Mary this coming year and beyond that. I have recommended Dr Mary to all my friends and definitely suggest you to also take classes with her in order to get a very deep understanding in your courses and achieve better grades.

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! I am so lucky to have found Dr Mary, who is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher, to teach me IB CHEMISTRY. She prepares lesson plans very well and uses so many informative and interesting videos to explain hard concepts in the most tangible approach to make understanding much better and easier. I am very comfortable with her as she is very friendly and at the same time very professional and organized. She never wastes students' time as I had some tutors in the past that for example in a 2-hour class, the efficient time could be only 1 hour and 30 minutes or even lesser but with Dr Mary, I realized how a real teacher can be very dedicated and never wastes students' time and money. Dr Mary is a really compassionate and kind teacher whose genuine goal is her students’ success. Thank you so much Dr Mary for all the great help to me and all other students.

I used to have many tutors in the past in the hope of getting my desired IELTS score until one of my friends recommended Dr. Mary to me and I started to take classes with Dr. Mary to prepare for the IELTS test in a very short time which honestly turned out to be really efficient and awesome and helped me greatly to finally achieve my dream IELTS scores in all the 4 skills after many attempts. She used some new advanced methods to improve all my 4 skills (Writing, Reading, Speaking and Listening) as she has different highly-qualified credentials from the best US universities so I was very impressed by her. For instance, she used to give me a variety of different writing homework and walked me through them by her great methods which eventually made me a very independent writer to ace my IELTS test and the same goes for my other skills as well. I am very thrilled to have had IELTS classes with Dr. Mary and definitely suggest you to take IELTS and any other English classes with her to ace your exams. BEST CHOICE!

I have been incredibly impressed with Dr Mary as a great IELTS teacher. I am taking ACADEMIC IELTS classes with Dr Mary specifically for my writing and speaking skills and she has been truly helpful to me. She has absolutely exceeded my expectations. She explains everything very clearly and is extremely professional, patient and reliable. Dr Mary's knowledge of English language and the use of it, is perfect. She uses lots of examples and notices every mistake, even the minimum ones and gives you the right tips and tools to not repeat them again. My writing and speaking skills have improved greatly after taking classes with her. She has helped me think independently and be able to write both tasks 1 and 2 IELTS writing much more confidently and also speak about different IELTS topics easier with more confidence. All in all, I strongly recommend Dr Mary to all students looking to take IELTS exam and accomplish the best results.

Wonderful Tutor! Dr Mary is very experienced and always focuses on deep conceptual understanding to enable her students not to just memorize things but understand them profoundly which makes solving any exam problems much easier. Additionally, she solves many practice questions to deepen the understanding as well. I absolutely enjoy being taught UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY and MATH by her as she is very professional and dedicated. In our tutoring sessions, she never wastes even 1 minute, even she teaches over time too since her main goal is her students’ success to achieve the best possible grades. I have recommended Dr Mary to all my friends and whoever needs help in chemistry, organic chemistry and math. Best Tutor ever!

Olivia

Awesome teacher! I've had SAT exam prep classes with Dr Mary. She is a wonderful teacher with a massive amount of deep knowledge and patience. She is committed to your success and will give you all the keys to get you there. I've got the best result that I could ever hope for in my SAT exam thanks to her great help. Dr Mary is the best teacher I've ever had. Tutoring sessions are also arranged to a time that suits the student best and timings are quite flexible. I strongly recommend Dr Mary to all the ones wishing to prepare for any exams in the best possible way.

Sophia

I am taking ESL classes with Dr Mary and learning a lot from her and I am certainly going to take IELTS classes with her too. She is a real gem whose goal is her students' success. I used to have some tutors before her but none could actually help me improve my English but Dr Mary is very good and kind with a great teaching method. If you are a beginner, she will teach you step by step patiently and will make learning enjoyable and sweet for you. You can tell she has a lot of experience doing this. I am 100% sure you will love learning with her.

Mira

FANTASTIC TUTOR! My friend recommended Dr Mary to me and I'm so happy to have found her. Dr Mary has been teaching math, chemistry, and English to me and truly has helped me so much to boost all my grades. I wouldn't be able to do any without her help. She breaks down all the hard subjects and makes them very easy to understand. I have recommended Dr Mary to all my classmates and they were all happy with her and I do recommend her to you too because she is a very supportive teacher that sincerely wants your success.

Kathleen

Dr Mary is an absolutely awesome tutor. My friend recommended her to me and I am taking AP Chemistry and AP Calculus classes with her. She is so knowledgeable, caring and patient. I used to hate these subjects but ever since I started taking classes with her, I truly enjoyed them which is a great feeling. I am honestly very satisfied with Dr Mary as she teaches all the concepts very deeply to strengthen the student's science foundation and solves loads of practice problems to establish the understanding. Hence, I definitely recommend Dr Mary to any student looking for a fabulous grade booster. 

F
Fernanda

I have received a huge amount of help from Dr. Mary for all UNIVERSITY CHEMISTRY, PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY and ADVANCED ORGANIC CHEMISTRY subjects which used to be very difficult courses but now they have become so easy and understandable for me owing to Dr. Mary's amazing teaching methods that tremendously helped me understand complicated concepts. She teaches all the hard concepts very perfectly and deeply. I feel so much better every time after taking classes with her. I am going to take MCAT prep classes with Dr Mary as well since she always goes the extra mile to support her students most. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend Dr. Mary to all students and learners looking for a wonderful teacher.
