Currently, I am a EdD International Educational Development student at Teacher's College Columbia University. Previously, I was Harvard Graduate Student doing work with a focus on education.

I have experience as a high school math teaching having taught Statistics, Geometry, Remedial Math, SAT math prep, and Algebra II, and I love math! If you don't think you like math now, you will change your mind once you work with me. With over 50 hours of experience tutoring math, I am ready to work with you. I triple majored at the University of Texas in International Business (a prestigious Business Honors Program), Spanish and aced all of my math classes (through Calculus 2).

As a tutor, I will work with you on your specific needs and bring supplementary materials that will help you achieve your goals. Because I am a teacher, I can use my experience to find the root cause for a mathematical misunderstanding and work with you to build a base that will make math a subject in which you are confident.

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.

College Counseling

I am currently a Harvard graduate student and have had a great amount of experience applying for undergraduate skills, preparing for the SAT, applying for scholarships, preparing resumes and getting ready for college interviews. Prior to being a graduate student, I was a High School Math teacher, and one of my subjects was an SAT Math class offered at our school. During this class, I worked with students to get ready for the SAT and mentored students working on their college applications. I have also done this with students I have worked with via private tutoring one-on-one.

When I applied for undergraduate, 6.5 years ago, I also applied for over thirty outside scholarships and won approximately $35,000 to put toward school. I have experience with applying to scholarships outside of the ones offered by the university. Most students do not even take a look at these, and I have the experience to guide them through this process.

I would love to work with you as you prepare for your college career!

Study Skills

Having been a high school teacher (with experience teaching all four grades), I know how challenging it can be to stay organized and learn to use your study time effectively. Luckily, there are a variety of tools and techniques to choose from that fit you! No one should have to fit into a mold and that means your study and organization skills shouldn't have to either. There is no magic secret that works for everyone; you should never feel like a failure just because you can't seem to master what your teachers tell you is "correct" or what seems to work for other students.

I would love to work with you to get your study skills sharpened so you can have the confidence to succeed!

"Wonderful tutor, great motivator" — From the very first session Marlana was encouraging which took a weight off of me as I had found someone who could truly help me. This was a difficult subject and she eased my fears and helped me to focus on the job at hand; she taught me to review the complete problem and then dissect it in a logical order to cover all aspects of the problem using the right formula. She was able to guide me so th ...
