M. O'Brien Tutoring
About this pro
Ms. O'Brien was a wonderful tutor for our daughter. She was very flexible with times which was very helpful for us. She was very patient and efficient. My daughter was able to catch up on a month and a half of missed classes (due to changing schools) in a very short amount of time thanks to Ms. O'Brien. I would highly recommend her for any tutoring needs.Jan 6, 2017
Maggie tutored my daughter, Katie, in high school math. It was a subject my daughter had a great deal of difficulty in. Maggie was able to make the subject relevant and engage my daughter in the learning process. Katie's grades and understanding of the subject improved during her time with Maggie. She still speaks highly of Maggie and remembers her tutoring time fondly.Jan 4, 2017
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied at the University of Notre Dame, majoring in Psychology and Spanish, with minors in Theology and Education. During my time at ND, I tutored high school students in math and testing, as well as Spanish (various levels) and English for native Spanish speakers. I have worked with children as young as 5 and adolescents as old as 18. Additionally, I have also worked with students with special needs on a one-on-one basis (specifically Autism). After my undergraduate degree, I earned my Masters of Education from the University of Notre Dame, with a specialization in secondary education. I am a full-time teacher and have taught in both Phoenix, AZ and Minneapolis, MN. I have taught students ranging from 8th grade to seniors in high school, and have taught both Spanish and Psychology.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always been passionate about working with others, specifically kids, as well as education. Due to these passions, I became a teacher, which I thoroughly enjoy!
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with a wide range of customers - from ages 5-20 and in a variety of topics. While I am a full-time Spanish teacher, I enjoy working with other topics & subjects, specifically math, English, and testing (such as ACT).
