I am Margie, and I have over 35 years of experience in education, both in teaching and administration. I am certified to teach K-8 in Massachusetts. I have a Masters of Education degree in Creative Arts and Learning from Lesley University. Therefore, I know that there are many ways that students learn, and I have strategies for all types of learners.
In the process of teaching almost 40 years, I have taught art in the context of regular daily curriculum. Also, I have a Master's Degree in Creative Art in Learning. I have taught several craft classes to high school and adult students, as well as Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. My Master's thesis focused on puppetry.
The foundation for all learning occurs during the time a child spends in elementary school. Language arts, math, social studies and science are subjects upon which further knowledge is based. Proficiency in these subjects is offered as the alternative to frustration and failure.
Being certified for elementary education (K-8), I am qualified to provide this service.
I have studied the Hebrew language since I was six years old. My major in college was Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, for which Hebrew language was a prerequisite. I spent half of my junior year in college living in Israel, and have been back a dozen times for extended periods of time. I am schooled in formal grammar of both modern and Biblical Hebrew.
I am proficient in many needlework arts. I can teach crochet, embroidery, needlepoint, and crewel. These skills can be used to bring a bit of oneself to personal items as well as to gifts.
I have a masters degree in Creative Arts in Learning and a Certificate in Graphic Design. I have also taken courses continually for the past 20 years from the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts and from Bellevue College. I maintain a small business which deals with graphic design and portrait painting.
Phonics, although not the only element in a reading program, plays a critical role in its usage. Discriminating patterns, rhymes, initial sounds, ending sounds, etc. can allow the student to find success in reading the English language. I have taught phonics for many years, and I have developed over a hundred games and activities to facilitate the mastery of phonics.
Great Tutor — Margie is a very patient and kind. She does not rush through a lesson. She makes sure that the student feels confident about the material before moving forward. She is very easy to get in contact with - whether it is by phone, email or text. My daughter really like working with her since she is very understanding and easy to talk to. Thank you, Margie! ...
