My name is Marsha, and I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Multiple Subjects Clear Teaching Credential and a major in Child Development. I also have a Cross-cultural Language
Acquisition Development Certificate which allows me to teach non-English
speaking students (both adults and children).
I got this certificate when I went to a language school in Costa Rica. Traveling is one of my hobbies. Learning different customs and cultures is important to me. Along with traveling, I enjoy dancing, reading

Children are our future and opening their minds is always an exciting time. I love the challenge of grabbing the teaching moment and turning it into the "ah ha moment" when the light bulb goes on, and I see your child understand concepts where they weren't available to him/her before.
In over 20 years of teaching, I've been able to impact my students with the love of teaching. I teach Math
, reading, phonics
, comprehension, English as a Second Language
, test taking skills and study skills
I emphasize such things as written expression, reading comprehension, vocabulary-building, critical thinking, and logic
. (Common Core Curriculum.)
Whether we are working on reading, spelling or math, I assign homework to review the subject taught, and keep the student engaged but not overwhelmed.
I am flexible with time. However, I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I am comfortable with tutoring both privately or in a group. I also provide an environment conducive to learning.
Looking forward to hearing from you to find out how I can best be of service to meet your needs. Everyone can be successful in their studies and feel good about themselves. Let me help you reach those goals!
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
