About Marlys

I am a full-time student working towards a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education with plans to obtain my teaching credential. I have worked as a tutor at a local community college for the past five years and I LOVE what I do! I am certified through CRLA.

My biggest strengths are my patience and ability to explain difficult concepts in a clear and easy to follow way. I am always learning and looking for new techniques that can improve my abilities. My biggest weakness is my tendency to be too hands on, which can sometimes lead to the student relying on me to solve the problem for them.

The purpose of tutoring is to not only help the student understand the concepts but also boost their confidence so they can tackle the problems on their own. I can't take their test for them! In an effort to check that the student truly understands a concept I will often provide a fun worksheet for them to practice their skills so that I can observe where their weaknesses may be.

Lastly, I feel that as a student myself, I am able to empathize with my students and offer tips and suggestions that have allowed me to succeed. We have all struggled with our academics and I am no exception to this. Hard work and determination go a long way!

I look forward to meeting new students and guiding them towards success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have tutored in Algebra for over four years. I also work hands on with a college Algebra class throughout the year.

Algebra 2

I work hands on with Algebra every day and have tutored in the subject for over four years.

Calculus

I have taken all 3 Calculus level courses and passed each with an A.

Geometry

Who doesn't love shapes? Geometry is a fun subject and I have over four years experience tutoring it.

I believe Algebra is the foundation for all math and with a solid foundation you can build amazing things! Let me help you build that foundation so as you continue through math it can be a positive experience.
