Bio

Hello! Welcome to my WyzAnt tutoring profile.

I have a master's degree in developmental psychology and program evaluation. My graduate degree taught me not only about psychology and program evaluation, but also how to manage my time and stay calm under the pressure of writing research proposals and calculating tough statistics. Knowing how to stay calm under pressure (like pop quizzes!) can be half the battle. On top of helping students learn the concepts of each subject, I can pass on...

Hello! Welcome to my WyzAnt tutoring profile.

I have a master's degree in developmental psychology and program evaluation. My graduate degree taught me not only about psychology and program evaluation, but also how to manage my time and stay calm under the pressure of writing research proposals and calculating tough statistics. Knowing how to stay calm under pressure (like pop quizzes!) can be half the battle. On top of helping students learn the concepts of each subject, I can pass on some of my secrets for study skills and test taking.

I recently started working for a non-profit in Los Angeles that provides childcare and resources to low-income families. My position as Outcomes and Best Practices Associate allows me to put my "math-nerd" hat on and evaluate each of the programs we offer to ensure that we are operating at the highest level attainable. I get to assess our programs and collect data in order to show our families and our funders that what we provide to families is truly beneficial to our children.

The subjects that I most frequently tutor are Algebra I and II, Psychology, and Spanish. I have the most experience helping middle and high school students with Algebra. I have tutored both in groups and in one-on-one settings. I enjoy getting to know my students and understanding how they learn best so that I can be the most efficient and most helpful tutor I can be!

I would love to help you achieve your academic goals.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Freshman Honors Geometry: Helpful and Knowledgeable Tutor

Marilyn tutored my son in freshman Honors Geometry. We were very satisfied. She is helpful and knowledgeable. She focused on the areas we needed to direct our efforts toward.

Thomas, 1 lesson with Marilyn

Marilyn to the rescue!

We appreciate our Marilyn! She has been tutoring my daughter in middle school math for over 9 months and still going. Marilyn Is very patient and challenges the brain by bringing additional material to help my daughter understand the subject. She has a wonderful way of dealing with the young adolescent brains, she gets the mind stimulated as the confidence builds!

Calm and patient tutor

Marilyn has the perfect energy for kids who are intimidated by math. She is calm and low key and knows how to get kids to push themselves without making them think they are pushing themselves.

Margaret, 16 lessons with Marilyn

Marilyn was professional and used the time most efficiently.

Marilyn covered exactly what we were most concerned about, English, Math and developing study skills. She asked my son comprehensive questions to check for his understanding and had him practice during the lesson. She ended with what she would cover next time and what he was expected to have prepared. Excellent use of the time.
