About Margaret

I have worked as a paraprofessional in two local school districts for more than 20 years. I have worked with students in preschool through 3rd grade for more than 12 years. I then worked at a High School for eight years, where I ran the Career Center and assisted students with the college search and application process. I greatly enjoy working with students of all ages and providing individualized instruction. I believe that all students are capable of learning and can succeed when provided with patience and motivation.

Please contact me to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you and helping you to excel in your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have been assisting high school students with college and career counseling for the past eight years. I have instructed students with using Naviance to create resumes, do college searches and research colleges. Students are encouraged to develop a list of specific criteria that they are looking for when trying to select colleges to apply to. I assist them with this process and then help them search for schools that best meet their needs.

Study Skills

I have assisted students in developing effective study habits. I help students organize assignments, take good notes and develop study guides. In order to be successful, students should review materials over time rather than cram for a test the night before it is to be administered. What causes a student to be successful in studying is the amount of time and effort he/she puts into it.

Great tutor

It's been a pleasure working with Margaret. My son really enjoys working with her. I have noticed improvements in his reading ability.
