Welcome to Upper Level Tutoring!


  My name is Mary Beaudoin. I started Upper Level Tutoring to support and help Deaf and Hard of Hearing college and university students reach their full potential, reach academic goals, and to help them become more competitive with their hearing peers. An alternative to on campus tutoring, I offer tutoring and academic support one-on-one completely online using email, virtual white board, and video chat.

While working on my master's degree, I had the opportunity to tutor a deaf college student. Although ambitious, determined and educated, She had become frustrated and struggled to make the grades she knew she was capable of making. Writing skills and reading comprehension skills fell short. I was able to work one on one with my student and break down my thought process regarding written English. Working together using strengths to accomplish goals, grades and confidence increased. Through this experience, I found my place in the field of deaf education.

I have a BA in English from Sam Houston Sate University and an MS in Deaf Education from Texas Woman's University. The latter was an online degree. Home is near Dallas where I live with my husband and three children. We enjoy our time together doing projects and boating on the lake. As the kids are getting older, two in high school and one in middle school, they are venturing out with their own activities. It is an exciting time. Our two younger children have significant hearing loss; unilateral and moderate-severe to profound bilateral. I am hard of hearing with a unilateral hearing loss.

I am looking forward to working with you and helping you achieve your academic goals!
