Reading, Writing, and American Sign Language

I have been teaching and tutoring for over 25 years. I love working with students of all backgrounds and ages. I hold a bachelor's degree in secondary English Education and a master's degree in Deaf Education. I have worked in the public school system (elementary through post-secondary) teaching, tutoring, and interpreting a variety of subject areas since 1990. I am fluent in American Sign Language and have worked as a volunteer ESL instructor. I have home schooled my children since 1998. My expertise is in tutoring elementary-high school English.
My goal: to make learning fun while working hard. We will utilize our time together fully engaged in learning and practicing the newly acquired skills. I will also assign homework and be available to answer questions via phone and email.
Since my own children are still learning at home, I am happy to meet students at a mutually agreed upon, central location.
AMAZING ASL tutor
When looking for a tutor for my special needs daughter for her ASL class we went through so many profiles and after talking to quite a few it was obvious that Martha was the right fit for my daughter. Not only is she great at working with my daughter who is struggling in school with ASL, she is sensitive and thoughtful to her needs. Martha gives great feedback so that I as a parent know how things are going. She goes above and beyond with ideas on how to help my daughter be a success in this class. I had honestly thought there wasn't any light at the end of this tunnel for my daughter's ASL course, but with Martha and her optimistic attitude and tutoring skills, I can see my daughter catching up and excelling in her class.Kristi, 13 lessons with Martha
Patient, helpful, kind teacher
Martha is helping my freshman in high school with grammar and writing that he should have mastered already. Martha is re-teaching the concepts and it's clear she knows what she's doing and is an excellent teacher (not just tutor). She is patient and kind and my son likes her. That's all I could ask for!Kelly, 27 lessons with Martha
I've had Martha as my teacher/tutor for quite some time now. First as my ASL teacher at FCC and now as my tutor through Wyzant. She has always been very professional and prepared for each and every session my family has had with her. Each session has been enjoyable for my whole family. We laugh, we joke, we learn and most importantly, we leave smiling. I couldn't recommend Martha enough.James, 14 lessons with Martha

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!
Martha is such a kind and patient tutor with our son who is a special education student. She patiently guides him through assignments that he needs to do for school or practices a creative writing assignment with him. We highly recommend Martha for help with writing!Judy, 9 lessons with Martha

Knowledgeable and very patient
Martha is great with my daughter who is developmentally disabled. She is encouraging and so patient with her. She is doing very well and I am so happy with the progress that she is making with Martha. She really goes the extra mile for her students to help them learn. If you want to learn sign language, this is the teacher for you.Leslie, 35 lessons with Martha
Great teaching skills
Great pace and encouragement. We got right into the lesson and practiced what we'd learned. Martha recommended helpful curriculum and provided us with other resources to use for reference.Rebeca, 40 lessons with Martha
I love Ms. Martha! She is so nice and very easy to learn from - as a homeschooler, I've had many teachers and tutors and she is one of the best! She makes learning ASL a lot of fun and very interesting. I'm in my second year with her and wouldn't want any other ASL teacher.Sophie, 22 lessons with Martha
Martha has been tutoring our 9 year old son and we are very pleased with the extraordinary support she has provided. My son needed quite a bit of help feeling confident and comfortable writting and Martha made him feel just great right from the start. She is patient, caring and dedicated. I strongly recommend her!Luna , 6 lessons with Martha
