About Margo

I am a warm individual available for tutoring in psychology, math, reading, writing, and stitching.

I have a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College, where I majored in psychology and received high marks. I also took several statistics and other math courses in my time there and I was a frequent source of help for the other statistics and math students.

I have worked as a teacher's aid in both a synagogue and a preschool environment and most of my teaching experience comes from those jobs. I am friendly, caring, and eager to help others succeed in their studies.

I am a freelance writer for the Windy City Times in Chicago and I have spent most of my life writing poetry, science fiction, and fantasy for fun. I would love the chance to share that passion with others.

I have spent several years knitting and a couple years crocheting as well as doing bead work and cross stitch. I have also recently gotten into quilting and I have dabbled in tatting. I've made scarves, blankets, sweaters, and stuffed animals and also attend a stitching group that meets every week at my local library.

My base rate is $40 / hour, but I am willing to reduce it to accommodate those who are less able to pay.

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.

Needlework

I have been knitting for at least 7 years and I also taught an adult to knit as part of a free class. I have done crocheting, cross stitch, tatting, and quilting as well.
