About Marjorie

Dear Students:

I retired in June of 2014. I taught Special Education for the mild to moderate learning challenged students for 9 years. I was a Vice Principal for the Palmdale, K-8 school district for 3 years, and served as Principal of a K-8 charter school in Palmdale, for 10 years.

During my 22 years in Education my passion grew for showing all students that they can learn: and to maintain a positive growth mindset throughout their academic learning. I have worked as a teacher and administrator with students and families from all social economic and cultural backgrounds. My instructional strength is teaching students HOW to learn. When a student understands the concept of how to approach any academic difficulty the achievement follows.

I hold a California Special Education Credential, a Single Subject Credential in Health Science, and my Administrative Credential; which are all current until 2019. Today, I am willing and desire to continue helping students reach their full academic potential through tutoring. I have a preference of working with students in grades K-8, in all subject areas. The earlier a student develops strong study skills the more successful he/she is likely to be in their future.

I look forward to working with you!
