Hello, I'm excited to continue my work on Wyzant's platform. Over the last 11 years I have successfully tutored students ranging from middle school to adult learners in multiple aspects of the English language: writing, grammar, reading comprehension, pronunciation, vocabulary, literature appreciation, ESOL, proofreading, thesis development/research papers, and study skills. I have also assisted many students with improving their study skills and their career and educational planning, both through Wyzant's platform and in academic and professional settings. Tutoring gives me great satisfaction and I love it when my students reach their goals through a program that I design for each individual student, tailored to meet their own needs and learning style.
My personal goal is to teach others about the successful writing and study skills I have acquired over the years. I especially emphasize precise, concise and expressive writing, a critical skill for success for any subject in school or in any professional field. One of my strengths is to help students develop efficient methods of study and respond to their assignment, including ways to break large, confusing assignments into manageable chunks, to master reading with high comprehension and retention, to become highly organized, and to write effectively.
I strive to be creative as possible so that your lessons are interesting, relevant and tailored to your needs. I encourage questions and feedback and am a positive and patient person. I believe in going the extra mile to help each of my students. I will be happy to discuss your needs and describe what I feel is the optimal approach to achieve your goals. I design specialized study materials and exercises for each student as needed and can provide on-line learning for those who wish.
Ever since college, I've been called upon by classmates and colleagues for instructional assistance. In graduate school, I was recognized for teaching excellence by the Cornell Center for the Improvement of Undergraduate Education.
What a Great Tutor!
Our daughter, a high school junior, worked with Ms. M on study skills, organization, reading and writing skills, and developing a timetable for AP preparation. She provided several highly informative handouts, was always on time, and was able to communicate well with our daughter. While many tutors are subject experts, we liked Ms. M's ability to help teach our daughter how to study, how to read, and how to plan ahead. Ms. M was also available for check in phone/email conversations with our daughter between formal sessions. We like also that she was flexible, punctual, and was a great model for our daughter. She also provided some helpful hints on approaches to college applications. We can recommend Ms. M unreservedly.Mike, 6 lessons with Margaret
Highly recommend for study skills. She’s been really great with my disorganized sixth grader. I really liked that she outlined A plan that had a beginning and an end and goals. She’s great.Marla, 5 lessons with Margaret
I feel like we’ve been working together for years. Truth is M is mindful and competent, but it feels like she os really in-my-corner too. So grateful to have found someone that complements me so well.Jared, 4 lessons with Margaret
Margaret was very kind, well prepared, and knowledgeable. My 15 year old enjoyed the lesson. Looking forward to the next session. Thank you so much Margaret.Vera, 1 lesson with Margaret
Amazing first session with many more to follow!
My daughter (14 years old) was very impressed with Mrs. Margaret in general but also with her tutoring style, patience, personality, skills and overall professionalism and knowledge. She really geared her first lesson towards goal setting, providing articles, establishing rapport, and getting to know my daughter. My daughter actually said afterwards that Mrs. Margaret inspired her to read, write and research more than what she was assigned to do because she was so motivated by her session with Mrs. Margaret. My daughter is looking forward to many more fruitful session with Mrs. Margaret already!Alia, 14 lessons with Margaret
Above & beyond!
Margaret and I worked on epidemiology; more specifically the different kinds of incidence and prevalence when referring to diseases in populations. Margaret referenced an epidemiology text & went through my problem set prior to meeting so that she could answer any burning questions. She truly goes above and beyond.Claire, 6 lessons with Margaret
My experience working with Margaret M. has been so delightful. She is approachable, knowledgeable and caring. Her expertise in editing and formatting has benefited me in completing my final paper for completing my graduate degree. Overall, this has been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend her tutoring style; she is able to work with a diverse group of learners. She is a great writing expert.Gerdine, 5 lessons with Margaret
Excellent Teacher Ever!!
My daughter had tutors before but Margaret is incomparable to anyone my daughter had in the past. She is an exceptionally excellent teacher. She spends tremendous time planning what would be best for my daughter. Very thorough and detailed instructions, lesson plans and feedback are the best of what I have experienced. With gentle, kind and encouraging personality Margaret has, my daughter is very comfortable and enjoys having lessons with her. We are planning and looking forward to work with Margaret for a long time.Ji, 51 lessons with Margaret

Excellent and Caring Tutor
Margaret is a wonderful tutor who has been able to tutor multiple subjects equally well. She has been able to accurately tailor lessons to my daughter's specific needs and learning style. My daughter feels her time with Margaret has helped her tremendously with her homework as well as developing her study skills. We look forward to continued sessions with Margaret.Michele, 25 lessons with Margaret
