About Marilyn

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!

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.
