About Marianne


Bio

Now that the 2020/2021 school year is coming to a close, many students need extra help to complete their classwork, prepare for finals, and/or raise their final grade.

If you should choose to use the Wyzant online portal, both you and your student will be able to watch the video of each tutoring session for up to 30 days after the lesson.
About myself: I love speaking and teaching Spanish! I have just completed my ninth year teaching Spanish as a private tutor, and I have worked with 225 students from many states through Wyzant's platform with almost 2,700 hours of Spanish tutoring! I am also certified as a substitute teacher in Illinois, and I have taught as a Spanish substitute in my local middle and high schools for five years.
About my approach: regardless of the curriculum used in the classroom I focus on building the student's confidence by laying a strong grammar foundation. I try to smoke out the learning gaps and then go to work on the missing concepts. Also each student will spend a large portion of each session practicing oral and listening skills. I will often ask my students to "teach" me a concept in order to solidify their understanding of a concept and to reveal their true level of understanding. Furthermore, I will challenge each student to become a true learner and to seek mastery rather than to simply learn enough to pass a test. I help my students to understand the WHY behind the grammar rather than telling them to do something "JUST BECAUSE". I will also direct all students to some of the best, interactive, online resources available today to aid their Spanish studies.
I will do all of this while communicating openly and regularly with each student's parent as appropriate.

I particularly specialize in helping failing students to completely turn around their performance in Spanish class.

Excellent tutor!

Marianne was very patient with my teenage son and helped him gain the confidence he needs for his Spanish final exam. He's improved tremendously in just two sessions. We are so glad we found Marianne!

Janice, 2 lessons with Marianne
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Janice! Your son is such a positive and eager student; so I have really enjoyed helping him. It's amazing what a little personalized instruction and coaching will do!

Patient and persistent

Marianne helped Grace understand some grammar fundamentals while at the same time had her speak in Spanish which she doesn't really do in class. Marianne did an excellent job of meeting my daughter where she is and building from there.

Kristen, 6 lessons with Marianne
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Kristen, for your words of affirmation! I love to help a student grow in his/her confidence to speak in Spanish. At first it feels scary, but then it gets easier and easier! A student can begin to experience the thrill of speaking a second language!

Great Spanish Tutor!

Our high schooler has been struggling in Spanish. Marianne’s results-oriented approach seems to be exactly what we need to get our child back on track. They had a productive first session and we’re looking forward to continuing!

Melanie, 5 lessons with Marianne
Tutor responded:

Melanie, I am so glad that your student has been helped and hopefully encouraged! Even during our second session today I saw how quickly the new concepts were sinking in. The in-class struggle is usually not a matter of the lack of ability but of the absence of instruction that is meaningful to the student. :) Marianne

7th grade Spanish tutor review

Marianne helped my daughter who is in 7th grade, for the Spanish class. The tutoring session went very well for the first time and we had the second session today. I was pleased with all of the tips, how organized the review given for the each session and information given to help my daughter’s specific need.

Esther, 8 lessons with Marianne

Excellent Spanish Tutor!

Marianne is excellent! She did a wonderful job helping my son. We will use her again and again! My son was able to learn from Marianne and absorb more information than he has in his entire Spanish class.

Great high school Spanish teacher

My daughter has really benefitted from her weekly tutoring sessions Marianne. Spanish is less stressful with the extra help. Marianne is patient and reliable.

Great first session

My son had a great first session with Marianne.. This is his first year learning Spanish. Marianne began with the fundamentals and was very detailed. She also shared helpful study materials for reference.

Thank you, Lini! I love to work with students like your son who are so attentive and eager to learn! :)

The Spanish whisperer

Marianne is patient and kind with my student, and is working to build her confidence. It is going well! My student got an A on her first quiz and felt proud. Marianne is helping my student turn her negative attitude about spanish into a positive one.
