Hello parents and students.
My name is Marie. I am a patient, positive and resourceful person who enjoys helping my students gain mastery over those subjects they find challenging.
I hold a masters degree in liberal studies, and I have worked for many years as a substitute teacher and tutor. I have taught young children math, reading and writing. I have also team-taught math, science and job skills to teens at risk of dropping out of high school. My grade-school teaching history ranges from kindergarten to 12th grade, and I have handled classes with a wide range of student abilities and behaviors. In addition, I have experience teaching adults college mathematics, consisting of algebra I topics, and computer applications II, covering Microsoft Excel and Access.
In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, with concrete experiences in addition to subject specific worksheets. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student. In general, I will not give up until I have found a way to help my student to learn the material.
I look forward to hearing from you!
