About Marsha

Hello, learners! I am an online entrepreneur who worked as an assistant teacher and in other positions at La Prima Casa Montessori School for four years. Also, I am a trained substitute teacher and volunteer tutor. I started my tutoring mission in 2005. And I 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, the first half an hour of our first meeting is introductory, so it will be free although I have the right to waive this for lateness. 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. And please remember that I can contact you after your payment details are on file. Thank you and I am looking forward to working with you.

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.

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.

Writing

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.
