BS-Campbell University (Busn Admin, Mngmt)
My name is Marty and tutoring, coaching and mentoring is my true 'calling' and passion. I am an American but I've had a very diverse European upbringing and education, including completing my primary and secondary (high school) education in London, UK. I also studied for a year at a private Business School in Europe and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with minors in Management and Marketing from Campbell University, North Carolina, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2002.
I can bring the diversity and effectiveness of the European educational system and standards to you and/or your children.
Growing up in England, I developed a passion for English and excelled in essay composition, international literature, writing, reading, spelling, proper grammar and oral presentations (communication/public speaking). Writing effective, informative and passionate essays/papers on any subject (but especially literature) has been the most exhilarating, easy and fulfilling activity for me ever since high school.
Obviously I had an appreciation for language arts and literature to begin with, but I perfected my essay/paper writing skills with the inspiration and help from a few amazing professors I was fortunate to encounter on my educational journey.
So, you see, I strongly believe that with the right, individualized, fun approach, unique inspiration and step by step, logical-progression instruction, one can become an amazing writer!
I intend to bring that same INSPIRATION and CONFIDENCE to my students and show them how to develop their OWN unique style and convey their thoughts, convictions and passion in their writing.
I have coached both middle school children (assisting at a school) and adults.
I bring consistent discipline, passion for learning and mentoring, respect, patience, inspiration and ... my own fun, unique WAY.
All I ask for in return is genuine effort, dedication and intention to have 'fun'... :)
I can teach you OUTSTANDING organizational skills, study skills, testing skills and time management skills.
Attending and graduating TWO high schools simultaneously in London required a lot of personal commitment, discipline and high organization and time management skills.
I also bring experience in working with children ages 6+, teenagers and young adults.
Participating in the international organization, Camp America program, I served as a Camp Counselor and then as a Sports Director at a girl scout summer camp in North Carolina for 2 consecutive summers. I bring a lot of energy and creativity in designing different activities and programs for children and teenagers.
I have experience working with children and young adults with ADD/ADHD.
In my personal life, I am an Interior Design Consultant/Personal Organizer and I am currently raising and training our amazing and beautiful border collie.
***HOLISTIC LIFE-COACH APPROACH***: 10+ yrs of personal research and learning of Holistic Natural Health and Wellbeing, Ayurveda and natural remedies.
I can happily incorporate learning-enhancing (and energy centering, relaxing) techniques such as Pranayama, 5-min meditation and powerful, positive Affirmations into my private tutoring sessions!
Not only will they enhance the immediate learning, but also assist in enhancing/rebalancing the overall wellbeing and health.
I can also assist with wholesome holistic nutrition that will accelerate focus and learning abilities.
Looking forward to meeting you and working together towards your goals!
Wishing you a fun and happy day,

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.
Having attended and graduated from 2 high schools simultaneously in London, UK, and participating in an accelerated college degree program, I developed excellent study and time management skills.
I excel at organization, focus, prioritizing tasks & information blocks, highlighting key elements, memorization, research and effective test taking. I can absolutely assist in developing or sharpening of these skills in others, as I have tutored my husband to help him through college and my stepson through grade school.
My European education included a heavy focus on international (world) literature and essay/paper writing based on that literature. My reading curriculum would average approximately 15-20 books per year, with an equivalent number of literary essay assignments within the school year. The essay papers would not only cover a specific, limited topic of one particular book, but many times also cover the entire literary period or a philosophical question.
I have always had a passion for writing and my demanding educational background allowed me to develop excellent writing skills.
I specialize in inspiring, enlightening, passionate, informative, opinionated and evaluative essays/papers, as well as public speeches and business and marketing papers/presentations (based on my college education).
I can definitely teach or assist in simple writing, whether homework related in any subject or just for the fun of practicing.
I have mentored my stepson and my husband in their writing skills.
