About Marcia

I have always had a passion for Math and I enjoy working with students to help them understand and improve their math skills.

I majored in Math at Purdue University and my original career goal was to become a high school Math Teacher. While at Purdue, I completed my student teaching and taught Algebra and Geometry and Basic Math in a local school district in Indiana for a semester. I moved with my family in August of 1974 to California and started a career in Software development, as there were no local teaching positions available at the time we moved. I stayed in the Software development business for the next 39 years, but after my last job ended, I decided to pursue teaching math again through tutoring as I enjoy working in a one-on-one type of teaching/learning situation. I am able to teach both secondary and elementary mathematics including Algebra I and II and Geometry and Trigonometry. I love working with students and I have spent ten or more years at one of the local churches as a teacher and team leader for the 5 year olds and Kindergarten class. Please consider my background in Math education and enjoyment of working with children for your tutoring needs.

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.
