Like teaching children?

We do, too! Come join an exciting group of dedicated teachers as we serve Jesus Christ through teaching, nurturing, and ministering to His children.

Mrs. Dowd's Teaching Service is faith-based, Maryland State Department of Education approved tutoring company serving the Washington, D.C. area.

We tutor students in gifted (TAG) programs as well as students who need to relearn concepts. We also have many ESL students. In some situations we are hired directly by parents, in other situations we fulfill Maryland SES contracts for students in low-income, at-risk settings.

The subjects that we teach most frequently are:

  • Mathematics (K-12)
  • Reading
  • Phonics, sounds, blends, higher reading rate, etc.
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Literature
  • Critical Thinking Skills
  • English
  • Grammar and composition
  • About MDTS

    All of our teachers must read and agree with our Statement of Faith, Our Beliefs, and Our Vision and Mission. These are foundational to who we are and how we do our jobs. If you have any reservations about these statements or cannot sign them, MDTS would not be a good fit for you.

    No previous tutor experience is needed. However, we only hire tutors who absolutely enjoy children and have a strong desire to serve them and their parents is the essential ingredient.  In addition, your testimony will be asked in the interview and a church reference is required before we offer you a job with Mrs. Dowd's Teaching Service.  After that, we wiill provide curriculum and train you.

    Hours are flexible, anywhere from 2-12 hours per week, usually in the afternoon or early evening.  We have openings for individual tutoring situations in the public libraries and in larger group settings. The student-teacher ratio remains 1:2 or 1:3 in either situation.If we work in an academic program, the ratio could go to 1:5, a small group setting.
