About Marjorie

I really love being able to teach one-on-one as I feel that many students benefit from focused attention.

I taught 3 year olds in Shanghai for two years at two different schools, one using a PYP program and another which uses the British curriculum. While doing that I tutored three elementary students and one middle school student in everything from homework help to ESL. I have ESL certification in addition to my Multiple Subject Credential. I was invited to speak at a conference for early childhood educators on the subject of globalization and its impact on curriculum.

Though my years in Shanghai helped me to develop strategies for English Language Learners and gave me the space to grow as an educator, I was eager to take what I had learned and apply it in a new teaching environment. This is how I found myself teaching 5-year-olds at an International school in Berlin, which also ran the PYP program. At this level, I was really able to implement well thought out units of inquiry based on child interest. Since returning to the Bay Area I have been working as a year-long substitute at Le Lycee Francais de San Francisco supporting the English program.


I was a student that really didn't like Math, so as a tutor I strive to make learning as hands-on and fun as possible.


I originally wanted to teach English at the high school level. To prepare for that I took many courses that focused on grammar and how to teach writing.

I love to teach subjects in context, wrapping things together in a project. This way the learning truly sticks with the student.

I'd love to help you or your child ignite a passion for learning.

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.
