EducationI graduated from the College of Charleston in May 2010 with two bachelor's degrees in Media Communications and Spanish Language along with a minor in Psychology. I am currently working as a Digital Communications Specialist for Verge Solutions LLC, a national medical operations software company.
ExperienceI began tutoring students as a Peer Mentor with the College of Charleston. I was responsible for helping a freshmen student with severe learning disabilities acclimate to college life through the use of academic guidance and counseling. My main academic focus with this student was to hone study skills, time management ability and writing techniques. In regards to psychological support, I provided encouragement and helped him to process and work through emotional issues. Additionally, I was required to keep this student’s parents apprised of concerns and progress on a weekly basis during the course of the school year.
I have been an active tutor ever since graduation working mainly with college students from CofC and The Citadel who range in academic backgrounds and needs. I am proud of maintaining long term tutoring relationships with my students and their families – a few of which have spanned the students’ entire college career.
As my current students move to the end of their college careers, I am focusing more attention on helping them seek internships, draft resumes and prepare for interviews.
HobbiesBefore joining Verge Solutions, I worked with the Communications Dept. at Motley Rice, an international plaintiffs’ litigation firm. I am also a board member and volunteer marketing consultant for HALOS a local nonprofit organization serving Lowcountry children and their families.
I also have experience with running a political campaign for a family friend back home, which helped him get elected to the House of Representatives for my hometown district. I interned for three consecutive summers with the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and studied abroad my junior year in Salamanca, Spain. Currently, I'm training for a half marathon in the Spring.

I had multiple tutors before but Mary stood out being the best. She was always available to meet on short notice if I had an assignment due last minute. She is not only a great teacher but a great person. Would highly recommend.
Mary is, hands down, the BEST tutor we've ever had. She's responsive,dedicated,organized,dependable,and takes the needs of her students seriously. Don't know what we would have done without her.
