Mary Frederick is a wife, mother, and teacher who is passionate about writing and loves to share that passion with her students. She has over twenty-five years experience teaching kids to become excellent writers in a variety of environments.
She has worked as a classroom teacher in both elementary and middle school, tutored students at all different grade levels, and helped develop curriculum for an online ESL writing tutorial.

Here is what parents and students are saying about Mrs. Frederick:
“It has been an absolute pleasure and a true blessing to have Mary Frederick as our writing teacher. The knowledge and enthusiasm that she brings to our writing class has motivated my children to start writing and it has taught them that writing can be fun. Mary has inspired them to write and to enjoy sharing their writing with others. Because Mary is a loving and dedicated teacher, she quickly won my children’s hearts and became their favorite teacher. She is truly a remarkable writing teacher and we are so thankful to have her in our lives.”
~ Anamaria Fallavollita, El Dorado Hills
“My daughters have taken Mary Frederick’s writing classes for the past four years. Her unfailing kindness coupled with her vast knowledge and expertise of the English language make her the girls’ favorite teacher. As a homeschooling parent, I find her approach to teaching gives the girls the foundation for all necessary writing projects which they have written in this class. I would recommend Mary’s class over and over.
~ Anca Green, Shingle Springs
“We absolutely love Mary Frederick’s writing classes for our boys, and I can’t recommend her high enough. She’s a creative, positive, and extremely supportive teacher. She knows writing, and she’s knows teaching; the perfect combination for successful writing. Mary is a great communicator, and she offers supportive critique along the way, allowing for positive growth with each step of the writing process. Both our boys (5th and 7th grade) have grown in all the writing genres, and they especially enjoyed the news article projects. They came home enthusiastic and confident about what to write and how to participate in the group presentation.”
~ Lori Lara, El Dorado Hills

~ Jeanine, parent of 8th grade student
“This class exceeds my expecations. Your style of ‘building block’ steps helped Joey understand concepts of writing. Your cheerful support and encouragement made him want to write!”
