About Marilyn

I have always had a passion for education. I am an experienced journalist and educator. My own children are a testament to my pursuit of excellence. Graduating with a degree Magna cum Laude, I seek to help others overcome challenges to effective learning so that they may excel. I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve others.

I have worked as a news reporter, features writer and newspaper editor. I have skills in creative writing, as well as use of grammar.

I also work in a public school system as a speech pathologist. In this capacity, I counsel children in language, pragmatics, grammar and word skills. As such, I believe that I am competent to tutor others and help them learn in a one-on-one setting. I am patient, cheerful and professional and all times. I consider it a privilege to help others learn.

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.

Bible Studies

I graduated from a parochial high school that required four years of Bible study coursework as part of their curriculum. I passed all with high scores.
I have taught Sunday School at my church.
I have been a reader of the Bible and studied it for most of my life.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am employed in a metro public school district, working with elementary-aged students. I seek learning tools and techniques that help students learn not just answers, but how they can figure out answers for themselves. The "why" is very important when teaching students, so that they gain the confidence to continue to embrace learning.

Phonics

Teaching phonics is part of my everyday responsibility as a Speech Language Pathologist. Essentially, I help students understand how to dissect words into phonetic sounds. This helps students to learn to overcome their fear of "big words" and tackle them with ease and confidence.

Public Speaking

I am a Speech Language Pathologist and skilled and competent public speaker. I have had several professional and academic opportunities to speak to large groups and have done so with ease (including a graduation ceremony with approximately 2,000 in attendance). I am able to help others with tone, voice, body language and confidence building to boost their public speaking skills.

Speech

This is my profession and passion. I earned a B.A. in Speech Magna cum Laude. I teach students various elements of speech in my career as a Speech Pathologist. I am equally comfortable working with children and adults.

Study Skills

Effective study skills are extremely important for academic success. I have employed successful techniques and taught them to my own children who are also successful academically. So that students are not too overwhelmed by voluminous instruction, I encourage students to adapt to study habits in tiers to that they are better retained. I graduated with a degree magna cum laude.
