About Marie

I am a former computer teacher for grades K-8. I taught PowerPoint to grades 2-8 and instructed those in 3rd grade and up on how to create Excel spreadsheets. You will learn the easiest ways to make posters and brochures and how to format your reports and essays.

Previously, I was a math tutor for grades 5 and 6. I can work with you on everything from multiplication and long division through fractions and up to Algebra 1. Math is my passion!

I work with all of my students in a way to make sure that the experience is enjoyable and fun for them!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a computer teacher, I work with students from Pre-K to grade 8 with various school subjects including math, English, spelling, phonics, vocabulary, science, and history. I also have five years of experience as a classroom tutor, teaching math and language arts to 5th and 6th grade students.

Elementary Math

I worked as a fifth and sixth grade classroom math and language arts tutor for five years (2000-2005), assisting struggling students and helping them achieve passing grades. As a computer technology teacher, I continue to assist students with math and other subjects by implementing the classroom curriculum into my computer classes.

Fitness

I have been a fitness enthusiast for the past five years. Recently I obtained my certification from AFPA as a senior fitness specialist. I have three months hands on experience volunteering at my local gym three days a week with our "over-65" members.

Phonics

As a computer teacher, I work with four and five year olds each week teaching motor skills and phonics. I prepare lessons that include hands on learning, games, and songs. Repetition is the key to learning phonics at any age. I taught my own daughter to read before she entered kindergarten.

Public Speaking

I have a "Toastmasters" certificate for public speaking. In addition, I work as a computer teacher which requires me to speak in front of both students and teachers. I teach 2nd graders through 8th graders how to be good speakers during their power point slide show presentations though proper body language, proper voice volume, and by being real.

Savvy Lady Who Knows Her MSPowerPoint Software

I was impressed with Marie's ability to get to the crux of the critical issues of the tutoring session. That ability plus her ability to resolve what seemed to me to be an insurmountable problem enabled her to fix the problem but to train me to handle the same issues in the future. That's what a good teacher does - enables a student to gain the knowledge/skills needed to handle future problems o
