As a certified teacher, with extensive teaching and tutoring experience. I use a variety of methods to make tutoring interesting and successful. Material needs to be relevant and apply to the student's real world life. I have experience tutoring as both a Title One tutor in the school district where I worked, and as a private tutor. I teach middle school Social Studies, and advanced Social Studies, in a highly performing middle school in Phoenix area. I am available for tutoring weekday evenings and Saturdays until Summer at which point I am available any time. I am familiar with Common Core standards, and the expectations of AIMS testing, as well as the upcoming PARC testing.

I utilize a variety of strategies, including technology and hands on project based learning. I am currently working on my Library/Media K-12 Endorsement/Masters, and I look forward to working with students; learning and having fun at the same time.

My availability is better during the summer months. I am available weekends as well. I look forward to speaking with you.

Thank you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Margie’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Margie. View all of Margie’s resources

I like to use the same methods I use in my class to make it fun, in my tutoring. I make my classroom interactive, active, group collaborative, relevant  and I encourage student discussion, participation and feedback. I can't think of anything worse than sitting down with a boring person to study !!

Spring is the perfect time of year to get your student the extra help they need and raise those end of the year scores on state benchmark testing. Start the Summer off for your student with the satisfaction of ending the year's grades on a high note!!!
