I am Marné, I am a Special Education Teacher and Anthropologist. I have taught on the Navajo Reservation in Southern Utah, the Quinault of Western Washington, and in the harsh desert of Palm Springs (hey, it was hot!). I have spent most of my teaching career working with students in small groups and one on one. Younger students progress very well in one-on-one learning situations.

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.
