About Marilyn

I just completed 30 years of teaching in Polk county. Over my 30 years, I have taught kindergarten, second, third, and fifth grades. As an elementary school teacher I have extensive experience in all subjects on the elementary level. I also have a love of Middle School Math.

Over the years I have been involved in many tutoring programs. I've taught summer programs sponsored by the schools, SES tutoring with companies outside the school system, and one on one tutoring privately with students. I look forward to helping your child reach their full potential.

I have an Associates degree in Accounting with a major in Algebra. I have tutored middle school students and taught them tricks to memorizing theorems. All of my past students have passed their FCAT tests.

As an elementary school teacher I have instilled proper English and Grammar skills with my students in their writing.

I use manipulatives and drawings to help students understand the different math concepts. Math is my strength.

I use a variety of strategies to help students with phonics skills. One approach is identifying word families for a particular vowel pattern. Another way to help students learn words is by chunking; (pick out the part of the word you know and add to it).

Just because I retired from the school system, it doesn't mean I'm finished working with children. My greatest reward is when I see a child finally understand a new concept and can use it on their own. I look forward to helping your child shine academically.
Please contact me to schedule a meeting with you and your child. We can discuss your needs and get started on a plan.
