About Marilyn

Supporting the education of others has been a passion throughout my career. I have found the energy associated with supporting the educational and social needs of the students I have worked with rewarding.

I have been fortunate to teach at the elementary, middle and high school levels, which has enabled me to understand the necessary levels of support needed at each of the stages associated with the learning process. Taking difficult concepts and breaking them down to manageable lessons has been at the forefront of my career as a Special Educator, particularly when working in the resource room environment concentrating on Reading, Writing and Math concepts. I have been challenged to be both creative and patient in working with my students.

I have utilized phonics based as well as whole language based programs to give my students the tools they need to read successfully according to the skill levels they need to improve. Having taught at each grade level helps me to gauge where the students need to improve for their future learning.

I have utilized the Wilson reading program as well as organized a reading program based on the fundamentals of Nina Traub's Recipe For Reading.
As important as the education of individuals, keeping accurate student records for the districts I have worked for has been another important part of my experience. Students are not taught by one educator and it is vitally important that communication is open to involve all participants. For this reason regular contact between school and tutor is necessary.

For the past 6 years I have had a unique opportunity to teach overseas and be part of a diverse team that started a school in the Cayman Islands. The international education experience helped me to gain a deep understanding of cultural differences and appreciate working with people from all over the world.

I look forward to working with you and helping you succeed in your educational goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Elementary Education for 4 years in New York as a K-3 teacher in a self-contained classroom. My Bachelor's degree is for Elementary Education from Fredonia State College. In addition I have taught in a resource room setting in Florida Public School system in Broward county where I utilized the Wilson reading system and utilized the Writing Process tools to improve the skills of my students.

Phonics

I have utilized the Wilson reading program as well as followed Nina Traub's Recipe For Reading guidelines when organizing a parent based resource for first and second grade leveled students that required additional phonic based instruction.

Study Skills

When teaching resource room at the middle and high school levels, study skill review sessions were utilized to assist students with organizing their work loads, studying for tests and quizzes as well as for helping with long term assignments. When gathering information for reports and research papers, techniques to help organize their information was used.
