As a masters student in international development studies at LSE, I am passionate about social sciences, geography, writing, and education. I am an American and Latvian citizen who grew up in the US. I have a bachelor's degree in geography from Middlebury College in Vermont, where I studied cartography, politics, economics, and anthropology. I also have extensive experience teaching and tutoring young people. I am a Fulbright Scholar, where I completed an English teaching assistantship in rural Latvia through the US Department of State. I taught students aged 7-18, created curriculum, managed classrooms, and tutored one on one. I was a teaching fellow for 5th grade in Chelsea, Massachusetts, where I taught math, technology and engineering, and computer science to students from low-income, immigrant backgrounds. Additionally, I wrote feature articles for the Baltic Times, Latvia's largest English language newspaper. I love working with students to produce their best results and to incite a love of learning for writing and social sciences.

I approach tutoring with expertise and compassion. I believe in guiding students through the learning process by asking targeted questions and encouraging students' output by thinking out loud and writing down ideas. I will work with each student in the first session to set identifiable, measure goals. For example, if a student is struggling with organizing essays, we will work on creating outlines, writing introductions and conclusions, and eventually completing the essay. If a student is studying for an exam, we will work together to break down the concepts in small and manageable ways. I firmly believe that if given support, each student is capable of achieving their goals.

Mara is a very nice lady. Her teaching is excellent. Highly recommended. My son developed/ increased his confidence in his English subject.

The first session was mostly nervewracking for me but honestly she's very understanding. I've sought help from other tutors and teachers but she's been more helpful in this one session than the others.
