About Marcy

I have been a successful tutor for more than 8 years. I've tutored students, including adults, at all levels in a variety of subject matters. In addition to tutoring, I work as a freelance writer and editor for educational publishers. My work has entailed developing test items and other materials, editing student and teacher editions, correlating standards, proofreading and editing online courses, and more. In addition to my work experience, I am certified to teach in grades K-6 and have a Master's in Teaching from Sacred Heart University. My bachelor's degree is in Soviet Area Studies from Mount Holyoke College. If you'd like to learn more about my background, I'd be happy to provide you with a resume.

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.

Career Development

Over the past 30+ years, I've had a number of different careers, which I've developed on my own. In addition, I taught career development to students in a special program at Norwalk Community College. We worked on developing resumes and cover letters, how to look for specific jobs, and interviewing techniques.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach in grades K-6 in Connecticut and have tutored elementary level students in various content areas over the years.

Microsoft Outlook

I've used Microsoft Outlook for e-mail, maintaining a calendar and reminding myself of tasks for a number of years.

I also taught technology to high school students at a private school in Greenwich, CT. This was part of the curriculum for teaching Microsoft Office.

Microsoft Windows

I was a technology teacher at a private school in Greenwich, CT after receiving my teacher certification and Master's in Teaching.

I've been using a computer since the first IBM laptop came on the market, which was around 30 years ago. Therefore, I am very familiar with Microsoft Windows.

Proofreading

For the past 16+ years, I have worked as a professional editor, copy editor, and proofreader for educational publishing companies. I have worked on a wide range of materials in various content areas at grade levels ranging from Pre-K to post-graduate.

Russian

I majored in Soviet Area Studies and studied Russian for eight years while at Mount Holyoke, although I took most of my Russian courses at Amherst College. I also spent a summer at the Russian School at Norwich University, where I earned 8 credits.

Social Studies

I have tutored elementary and middle school students in history/social studies.

In addition, I have an endorsement to social studies in all grades in Connecticut.

Lastly, I have written, edited, copyedited, and proofread social studies materials for publishing companies and development houses for the past fourteen years.

Tennis

Growing up, I went to tennis camp every summer. It definitely was my favorite sport, and I excelled in it. I participated in a number of tournaments and did very well.

I was on the tennis team at Mount Holyoke where I did my undergraduate work.

I continued to play tennis as a hobby for a number of years, but do not currently play. However, I still know a lot about the game.
