About Marie


My name is Marie and I am a licensed teacher with 5+ years of in classroom teaching experience at the elementary and junior high level. I also have certifications in bilingual education, TOEFL, IELTS and ESL as well as an extensive background in curriculum writing. I stay at home now, but greatly miss teaching, so tutoring is something I am not only qualified for but truly enjoy.

I can help you with many subjects and am especially prepared for English Literature, English, Spanish, Geography and World History as I have written instructional curriculum for these subjects while teaching. My one on one sessions are reinforced through online quizzes and study preparation that I tailor to the needs of each student to improve the learning experience.

Another service that I offer is the editing, reorganization and creation of theses and other important writing assignments for all levels. If you need someone to help write or just review what you have written, you will be very happy with the outcome.

Need help taking online classes? Not a problem. I have a strong background in both online high school and online college courses. I know what is required and how to help.

Whether you are looking for someone to help with homeschooling or just help you get caught up on a specific subject, I know that I would be of great assistance.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-8th) and taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade for 5 years in a private school. As part of my teaching experience, I also wrote curriculum for several of the subjects such as World History, English, Geography and Literature.


With a strong background in TOEFL and ESL instruction, I also have extensive training and experience in the instruction of Business English which includes the communication skills needed for writing and speaking in the workplace. Whether it is preparing you for an upcoming presentation or the need for better written skills, I will be able to assist you in achieving your English language goals.


My Bachelor's degree is in ESL teaching and I have taught English in Mexico as well as to foreign students residing in e US. I have almost ten years of experience in this type of instruction.

Study Skills

As a teacher and a test preparation coordinator, I have worked with dozens of students to help them improve the organization and study skills that are required to succeed in both high school and college. I have taken various courses that have taught me how to help the student identify and connect concepts that previously presented a great challenge. The students in my tutelage have managed to increase their grades significantly in a variety of subjects as well as improve their level of confidence in their own capabilities.
