Hello, learners! I am certified in business education, and I teach ESOL. I am a trained substitute teacher and volunteer tutor. In the past, I worked as an assistant teacher and in other positions at La Prima Casa Montessori School for four years. I have been tutoring/teaching since 2005 and continue to develop myself to be the best that I can.

I passed the general knowledge tests for the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations or FTCE because I had intended on completing a bachelor's degree in Exceptional Student Education (ESE). Instead, I got some training in ESE and finished with honors from Miami Dade College in 2014 with a BAS in Supervision and Management. Further, I have the standard hours of childcare training through Florida Department of Children and Families. I also have other training and numerous certificates, which include magna cum laude and academic distinction.

My major areas of tutoring include English, reading, writing, and proofreading. I also tutor general sewing that consists of hand stitches, embroidery and simple garment/linen manufacturing. While I am not a qualified Montessori teacher, I have a great appreciation for the philosophy; thus, I prefer to interact with students using its style. However, I strive to reach learners by employing methods and techniques that work for them and within their time frame.

As far as other policies go, I will never charge you if we exceed the agreed upon tutoring time. In addition, cancellations that occur after 24 hours and no shows will be charged $10. I understand “life happens,” so I encourage you to communicate your concerns directly with me.

Feel free to inquire about other lessons because once I prove my knowledge with WyzAnt, I might be the right fit for you. Also, please remember that we can exchange personal information when your payment details are on file and that WyzAnt will bill you AFTER the first lesson has been conducted. Thank you and I am looking forward to working with you.

Elementary Math

Math is an essential part of learning and connected to life on so many levels. Because I passed the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations general knowledge math sub-test, I tutor elementary math. I maintain and improve my knowledge through online platforms and by working with students from year-to-year.

Reading

In 2007, I completed a national literacy training program in The Bahamas. Since then, I have been enthusiastic about helping people learn how to read. My technique in helping students learn is discovering what he/she likes and build off of it. For this reason, I have also successfully assisted learners who have been labeled. Together, we can accomplish everything!

Throughout my early and late education, English language has always been my strength. In college, I typically had outstanding grades. Today, I continue to stay on the cutting edge by taking various competency exams because I know that being a native speaker is not enough to prove my knowledge. Besides, students value "the tricks" I use to help them learn.

When I first added writing as a subject, I was more focused on handwriting and helping students build sentences and/or write answers based upon content. Because I used to review and critique essays for (potential) teachers and I enjoy writing, my focus has shifted to essay writing.

Sewing

Sewing

I have been sewing since I was eight years old. Of course, I started by using my dolls as models. Eventually, I gained sufficient confidence to make my first outfit (a dress) when I was twelve. At that time, I was considering pursuing a career in fashion design, but as I grew, my heart was set on teaching elementary sewing. I tried to secure a career in the local primary school system in my town, but they were not offering sewing at that level. I developed my skills by attending dressmaking classes. Even further, I have a certificate in tailoring from Bahamas Technical & Vocational Institute (BTVI). Because I never fully ventured out in this field, I consider it a hobby; nevertheless, I possess basic employable skills. I have a lot of patience and I love to instruct, so I know that I will be able to teach basic sewing and offer tips and techniques that will encourage you to take your skills and abilities to another level.

Very Knowledgeable and Dedicated.

Marsha is very patient and believes in your child. I can’t wait for my son’s next session with her. She’s very knowledgeable and makes sure your child is comfortable.

Tutor responded:

Monique, I appreciate your thoughts. Your son is sharp and easy to work with. I trust that he will excel in a very short period.

Great Tutor

Hope we can continue working together to help my son to improve his grades at school...Great tutor with lots of patience and knowledge. Thank you, Marsha, for being honest and understanding my son's needs. Great experience so far.

LLILIAM, 43 lessons with Marsha

Thank you. Your son wants to unleash his knowledge. I am happy to help him do that.

Excellent tutor

Marsha actually enjoys teaching and never limits but patiently excels my son to enjoy learning as much as she loves sharing her gift of knowledge. I look forward to my son’s future accomplishments.

Julio, 3 lessons with Marsha
Tutor responded:

Julio, thank you. I remember you told me that you wrote a review. You can see me clearly. I am passionate about helping people. I hope that I get to see your son grow.

Very patient with busy toddler

Although this was our first visit, Marsha was very efficient with her time in showing my 4 year old several areas. What I liked most about Marsha was her warmth and directness, which allowed for my 4 year to be completed at ease with her. At the end of the visit, she provided me with a brief summary and things to work on until our next visit. All in all, we will definitely retain Marsha's services for further tutoring.

Ketty, 2 lessons with Marsha
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Ketty, for being an awesome mom! I am happy that I was able to connect with your son. And I hope that I will be his tutor for as long as there is a need. To note, while impressionable children do not know what they need, I still treat them like anyone else: I get to know them for who they are, learn about what they like, and merge that knowledge with their learning goals. Your son is a quick learner. Fantastic!

Dedicated Teacher

Marsha is a great professor, patient and dedicated. She takes the time to explains everything and is always willing to help.I am expecting good results in my test. Thank you
