About Margaret

I have a B.S. in Mathematics from Birmingham-Southern College. During my time at Birmingham-Southern, I was a math lab tutor, where I tutored a variety of math classes on a walk-in schedule of students, and a private math tutor for the students who made appointments and needed individual attention. After graduation, I taught reading and phonics to kindergartners and first-graders in the Birmingham school system for a year with AmeriCorps. I also worked at a tutoring company called the Reading and Math Center, where I tutored a variety of age groups in mathematics. I also have a B.F.A. in Fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design.

I believe that sometimes the trouble with a subject is that it is only taught one way. We certainly all don't think alike, so how can we be expected to learn alike? My focus is teaching a variety of methods until we find the one that works for you. There is more than one path to the truth and there is absolutely more than one path to the correct answer.

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.

Clarinet

I've been playing the clarinet since I was 10, and now I'm 25. During my school years, I have been in band, marching band, symphonic band, and jazz band. Since being out of school I have participated in community band and played my clarinet to patients when I volunteered with Gentiva hospice. I have a passion to teach others to play the clarinet and could offer beginners to average players a few fingering tips!

Phonics

I was involved with Birmingham READS AmeriCorps for a year. During this time, I underwent an extensive month-long training in phonics. After that was completed, I tutored kindergartners and first-graders in reading and phonics at Booker T. Washington K-8 elementary school in Birmingham, AL.
