Bio

I loved teaching math in general. I have been teaching high school math, intermediate school math, and elementary school math for 16 years. I home-schooled my children for 2 years and loved it.
I enjoy working in the classroom; nevertheless, I prefer working one-on-one with students because it allows me to quickly figure out their learning style and can tailor my instruction to what works for them. I believe math is fundamental to understanding the essential things in life. I like being...

I loved teaching math in general. I have been teaching high school math, intermediate school math, and elementary school math for 16 years. I home-schooled my children for 2 years and loved it.
I enjoy working in the classroom; nevertheless, I prefer working one-on-one with students because it allows me to quickly figure out their learning style and can tailor my instruction to what works for them. I believe math is fundamental to understanding the essential things in life. I like being the one to make the difference.
My engineering training and background have helped become a critical thinker, organized, and a good problem solver. I can help your child. I believe everyone can be successful in math, and my goal is to give students the tools and confidence they need to be successful.

I would welcome the opportunity to work with your child. Thank you!

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects. I find it fun and easy to explain. Unlike other math branches, Geometry is visual. Kids can see it. If someone knows geometry, it is very likely they'll use it as a tool in their lives. It sure comes in handy! It is one of those subjects that transfers over to many lines of work. I would sure like to have the opportunity to inspire your child and make him/her feel good about it. As a professional math teacher, I know the Math Standards.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Marlene was interested in making sure my daughter truly understood the objectives of her algebra assignment. She was kind, professional, & efficient. Looking forward to working with her again soon.

Heather, 28 lessons with Marlene

Patient and encouraging tutor

Marlene provided some interesting material for my daughter to expand her vocabulary. She is patient and knowledgeable. Our daughter has stopped taking Spanish classes for a year but now she is not only able to pick up the language fast but also enjoys reading and using it again. My daughter loves her!

Lei, 1 lesson with Marlene

Patient and knowledgeable

We used Marlene to help prepare for both my kids’ math finals. They were both struggling with some of the algebra 1 concepts and Marlene was able to go step by step to help them understand. Her patience and ability to teach the concepts clearly was so refreshing!

Lini, 2 lessons with Marlene

Unbelievably helpful

My daughter went from getting F’s on every test to a C+ after the first session to a B after the second. Her grade has raised from 64% to 69.8% in two weeks. I completely recommend Marlene.

Tricia, 10 lessons with Marlene

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Marlene has taught my son for 2 years and I am very thankful to have her. She is patient to guide my son and make sure he has enough practices to solve problems not just understand the concept. She is the tutor you can trust.

Losa, 126 lessons with Marlene

Very Patient and Great Tutor

Marlene has been the best tutor my daughter has ever had. With her patience and dedication, my daughter's grades are A's and she will be receiving an honor student certificate. Thanks, Marlene.

Always great, even better just before quiz or test

Marlene has been extremely helpful to our son and has a great teaching ability. She has really helped him when there is a quiz or chapter test the next day.
