About Marcia

I am a teacher with twenty years experience in public school teaching and private tutoring. I enjoy working with students of all ages in a variety of subjects. Math, music and writing are my strongest areas.

Either temporary or long term help is available. Some traveling is welcome. I enjoy watching and helping students succeed! I believe we should always be willing to learn more. Education helps one better his or her life.

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.

I have experience taking many types of test myself. Test taking strategies, in addition to subject knowledge, help to achieve good results.

Algebra is useful even in every day life when trying to find a solution to a mathematics problem. I have taken many math courses and love to help others find "fun" in math as well.

Algebra 2

Math is a favorite subject of mine. When viewed as a puzzle it can be fun. Having taken numerous math courses at the graduate level I am well qualified to help.

ASVAB

Having been in involved with education for many years has provided an excellent foundation to teach a variety of subjects, such as are included on this test.

Economics

In our family farming business we have life experience with understanding economics. Additionally, my education to become a teacher included studies in economics.

ESL/ESOL

In my public school teaching position we have a number of ELLs. I have recently completed the Praxis to become certified in ESL. It is rewarding to teach students from a variety of backgrounds.

Flute

My experience teaching music involves band instruments, singing, piano, and guitar. Music activity has proven to benefit other academic subjects as well. Certainly it brings great satisfaction to participate musically.

Reading is essential for success in school and life in general. I've enjoyed teaching reading skills through my music classes at school as there are a lot of parallels. It is a subject students can learn to enjoy.

Study Skills

As a current public school teacher working on a second Master's degree, I am knowledgeable of good study skills. As life is busy there are numerous methods that help one to organize time. The other important aspect is to have the knowledge to be learned be absorbed in one's mind with efficient use of time.

Trigonometry

Math is fun as it like a puzzle. Having taken numerous advanced math classes, it is one of my strongest subjects to teach. Trigonometry is one of my favorite areas of math.
