I have worked as a teacher for over 30 years. I have taught people of all ages from preschool to adulthood. I currently work with English Language students.

I have tutored adults in the workplace and children in a Montessori School.

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your learning needs.


I have been studying with Mary since last year and I am enjoying it very much. I have been gaining from Mary not only English but the cultures, the way of local's living, thinking and acting which I think is more important than the language itself.
Mary's teaching is always full of happiness and laughter in which I have been staying so confidently.

I am Meekyoung from South Korea.
It was so joyful English class with Mary. I hope all of you will join the eco-friendly English class with Mary. Have Fun .

I'm going to talk here of the wonderful experience I had . I arrived in New Zealand on May 28,and immediately started to look for a private English teacher,and as by a miracle God has made Mary in my life . So I am at a first level class,and loved,her class is very dynamic and very didactic and quality learned a lot,unlike Brazil . Anyway,I can only speak good things of her work,a professional and wonderful person,all I need is always willing to help,teach more and more English .

Mary is a wonderful and very friendly teacher. In my view, she deeply understands how the nature of language works. Immediately after I met her, she could pick up a lot of things that I have problems with. I recommend that if you need to improve anything that you find difficult in the English Language, give her a ring!

I am not a native English speaker and always wanted to improve my English. Mary is a great teacher, she helped me a lot with English Grammar and I enjoyed Mary's "natural" learning approach. Our classes were always enjoyable and I hope I will be able to continue our learning in the near future. Renata

Mary is teaching my partner who is from a non-English speaking country. Currently we are taking one lesson a week one-to-one. My partner says she is very happy we found Mary because her teaching really works and she keeps her lessons interesting and enjoyable. I can confirm that my partner always comes back home from Mary's lessons charged with a new extra portion of English fluency which is exactly what we want.
