Hello students! My name is Marion; I am a certified public accountant and an experienced tutor. I can help you be successful in your SAT test preparation, Math, English, and Accounting subjects, or in your general study skills. I am fun and friendly, and I especially enjoy working with young people. I take your future success very seriously. I graduated summa cum laude from Boston University and Northeastern University. I look forward to meeting you!
The Cooperative Admissions Exam (COOP) and the High School Placement Test (HSPT) are entrance exams for admission to Catholic high schools. The COOP consists of seven sections which test a student's verbal reasoning, reading, and language arts skills, as well as math skills. The HSPT is divided into five sections, and it also tests verbal and math skills. I am currently successfully tutoring students for WyzAnt in these subject areas.
Tutoring elementary school-aged children has always been a treat for me. Whether I am tutoring math, English, or general study skills, building up a child's confidence to do schoolwork is a priority with me. When children are supported by a kind, encouraging tutor and more clearly understand their academic subjects, they feel empowered to work even harder.
Learning English for ESL/ESOL students is about developing the necessary written and communication skills to be able to function effectively in daily life in an English-speaking society. Conversational and pronunciation skills are critical for students so that they can converse with and understand others at department stores, at the doctor's office, at the auto repair shop, etc. In addition, it is important that non-native speakers be able to speak or write down the appropriate information about themselves when required(e.g.names,addresses,dates,etc.when filling out forms) And too, ESL/ESOL students must become familiar with the often confusing idioms and colloquialisms of native English speakers.
I have helped former non-native speakers of English become more adept at speaking and communicating in English, and thus, I believe, happier. I am a native English speaker, and a personable teacher. I have a sense of humor, and I love helping others to learn. You'll probably pick up my Boston accent!
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), geared towards elementary school students, tests reading comprehension and math, as well as verbal and quantitative reasoning skills. The essay is not scored, and is sent only to the schools requested by the students. The purpose of the exam is to provide schools with information about the students' strengths and weaknesses in math and English, and to assess their capacities for learning academic subjects. I have previously tutored students in the lower, middle, and upper grades to achieve success in this exam.
Praxis I,PPST (Pre-Professional Skills Test) evaluates individuals for entry into teacher education programs and may also be required by some states as part of their teacher licensing process. Praxis I consists of three parts: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Praxis II, PLT (Principles of Learning and Teaching) consists of elementary education tests and subject assessments in Science, English, Mathematics, and Social Studies for those prospective K-12 teachers of these subjects.
I have successfully tutored prior students in Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Thus, I am quite comfortable tutoring Praxis I and the English and Math sections of Praxis II.
As a practicing CPA and as an "A" student over the course of my lifetime, I have discovered the most efficient and effective ways to learn subject matter and how to score well on examinations. It's not always a matter of struggling to read every word in a textbook that gets you the knowledge you need, or the "A" grade. Just like real life, it's often a matter of knowing what is required of you, and addressing those areas first and foremost.
Too often, students "spin their wheels" on areas from which they will not maximally benefit. They get frustrated going around and around in circles, not understanding something. They lose their confidence, say negative things to themselves, and give up. My approach is to rebuild a student's confidence and enthusiasm for learning so that he/she will be able carry on after the tutoring is finished.
The TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) exam is a requirement by certain schools for admission into their nursing programs. The TEAS exam consists of four sections: Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English and Language Usage. I have successfully tutored prior students in all of these subject areas.
Excellent tutor! Look no further. — Marion was the best. She understood my thought processes and helped me learn where to improve my decision making when it came to difficult problems. She taught me how to determine how to tackle a problem the correct way, but also the easiest way. She was patient, outgoing and most of all, there was no problem she couldn't explain to me and succeed in making me understand how to solve it. Marion w ...
