I am a credentialed Language Arts teacher. My area of study focused on literacy and education which granted me the chance to study how people interact with new information, acquire new skills, and value the kind of learning they are being asked to undertake. I have worked as a tutor for students ranging from elementary through adult in subjects ranging from basic math and reading skills to ACT and SAT test preparation.

I am a credentialed Language Arts teacher. My area of study focused on literacy and education which granted me the chance to study how people interact with new information, acquire new skills, and value the kind of learning they are being asked to undertake. I have worked as a tutor for students ranging from elementary through adult in subjects ranging from basic math and reading skills to ACT and SAT test preparation. Tutoring is such a unique opportunity to apply what I know about teaching and learning in the most effective way. I enjoy helping a student gain confidence, knowledge, and efficacy in any subject. Each student learns a little differently and I enjoy finding out how to best facilitate learning for the individual student and to help him or her achieve the learning goals desired. I learn how to best help a student by listening to and observing the student. Each student teaches me how to be the teacher he or she needs.
I attended George Washington University in D.C. and California State University of Chico. While at GWU, I studied international affairs, German, and eastern European literature. As I mentioned, I studied language and literacy at CSUChico. I taught high school English in northern California for 3 years. I also speak Portuguese. I acquired that while I was an exchange student in Brazil for a year through the Rotary Club's program for high school students. I have traveled quite a bit and enjoy experiencing new cultures and environments. My interests also include environmental sciences, macro-biology, hiking, camping, and agriculture. I have always studied and enjoyed interacting with nature. My mother was a biologist and I have a good amount of knowledge about biology ranging from soil science to specific flora and fauna.

Great follow-up and excellent relation with my son.
Madeline provides great details on each session content. It helps me to follow up on my son's progress. Even with 90 minutes sessions, he is not reluctant to add them to his busy homework load.Gerard, 14 lessons with Madeline
This best Tutor I’ve had so far
Madeline helped me review some rules of math that I had forgotten and made them easier to remember. She gave me some strategies that would help me go through the SAT smoother than before and I feel confident that with her help I can get the score I’m aiming for.Natasha, 4 lessons with Madeline
Madeline helps me to understand the math lessons that aren't clear in my current Math lesson. She helped tutor me for Algebra 2 and I went from a "C" to an "A".Ali, 50 lessons with Madeline
Great Algebra I Tutor
Madeline explained the algebra concepts to my son in a way he could understand. She was very patient and easy to understand. It is nice to see his confidence grow as he is able to master the concepts. We look forward to continuing to work with Madeline going forward.Karen, 14 lessons with Madeline
Kind and patient.
Quick response and easy to deal with. My high school son really enjoyed his precalculus lesson and felt he accomplished a lot in 1 session. We plan on using her again. We recommend her.Julio, 2 lessons with Madeline
Since March 2017, Madeline has helped my son on English literature, writing and reading comprehension when he was still in 8th grade. All the tutoring sessions were conducted online. Before meeting Madeline, I was not so sure about online tutoring. We live in a greater Houston area. The logical approach was to find a face to face tutoring service at the beginning. However, after having a brief discussion with Madeline before the first tutoring session, I decided to give online tutoring a try. It turns out online tutoring is a great way to have individual lessons. Online tutoring at least have two major advantages in comparing to face to face tutoring: 1) No driving is required. That means the student can be at home without parents driving to a mutual convenience location for lessons. 2) One can find more available and suitable tutors online than one can find in local area. Most importantly, I believe Madeline is the right teacher regardless if she may be a thousand miles away. Madeline is very compassionate, patient, empathetic and friendly in her teaching. I highly recommend her! During Hurricane Harvey, the regular school had to shut down for two weeks due to safety and accessibility. During those two weeks, my son had multiple lessons from Madeline. Learning never stops during those difficult time. We appreciate Madeline’s support and encouragement during the difficult and uncertainty time.Eric, 83 lessons with Madeline
Madeline was very knowledgeable for ACT tutoring! She understands all the techniques to get the best possible score, and also helps you get a better understanding of the material. I will definitely be using her again!Michele, 9 lessons with Madeline
