About MARTHA

I enjoy teaching and working with children of all ages. I have taught elementary age students for over 20 years in all courses including working with students in learning their parts for school productions. In middle school reading, I taught 6th-8th graders how a novel is written.

Working with students on a one on one tutoring format is both rewarding to my students and me. My students have an outstanding track record of meeting set goals to succeed in their class work. Assignments will be given to help meet academic standards. I view learning as an on going adventure and believe all children have the capabilities to succeed once they gain understanding.

I have tutored and taught math from 1st-5th grade, which has given me an understanding of skills needed to build on. Foundation is important in learning and understanding math, I seek to find what is missing from the foundation that is causing the current gap or struggle. The solution can be something as simple as neatness, keeping work in order, or not understanding a step towards solving the problem.

I have taught grammar in all grades from 1st-5th. I have taught writing short stories, book reports, and research papers. I have a degree in Biblical studies and have taught Bible in both school and church.

When teaching lower elementary and homeschooling my own children I used phonics to develop reading and spelling skills.

Through observations of my students I capture their learning style so I can personalize their study skills, auditory, kinetic, etc. and make it fun.

I am looking forward to helping you reach your academic goals. Please contact me, tell me a bit about yourself, and let's set some goals to achieve together.
