I have over 25 years of classroom experience, being the lead teacher in Montessori classes of 15-27 multilevel elementary students. I have also tutored many children and several adults, from special needs to TAG, preK through 12th grade, mostly in math. I can help children overcome difficulties or maintain their edge in reading and math understanding as well as help them handle various science courses. I am willing to travel nearby, and meet in your home or at a public library.

For younger students, I have some basic Montessori teaching material, and I am certified by the American Montessori Society for teaching ages 3-12. I am available on Saturdays and most Sunday afternoons. I have been tutoring through WyzAnt for over 3 years, with students ranging from 5 to 18 years of age.

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.

Algebra 1

I happen to love math and teaching it to others. I have taught Algebra to students ranging in age from 12 to adults, having experience with students with learning differences, adults preparing for various exams, and students who just want to keep their edge in the area.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in a Montessori Class for over 20 years. The classes consisted of at least 3 grades, and I taught most subjects in the curriculum, except for PE, Spanish, and art. I had to manage the classroom, teach some group and mostly individual lessons, correct student work, motivate students to complete their assignments, and keep track of at least 3 different grades' progress simultaneously. Report cards and parent conferences were 2 or 3 times per year, but extra conferences were welcome at any time. I tutored children after school in math, reading, phonics, science, and English.

Phonics

I am certified by The American Montessori Society to teach children ages 3-12, in the basic curriculum. This includes teaching phonics and reading to all children in this age group. About 90% of children in my class were reading in kindergarten, and 100% by first grade. As well, I have experience tutoring children with learning differences, and have succeeded in helping them manage learning to read. The basic rules of phonics would apply to anyone needing help, not just small children.

Very patient and approachable — My meeting with Marta was very comfortable. I feel that my daughters' lessons with Marta will be very fruitful to her learning. After one lesson, my daughters' reply was that she learned some techniques that she didn't know before. We are looking forward to our next meeting !! GREAT JOB MARTA !!! ...
