About Margery

Hello,

I am a personable, empathetic teacher looking for more tutoring work. I enjoy working with people of all ages.

I am currently a professor of English and writing at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. I enjoy assisting international students who need help with English, students who will soon be entering college and need assistance with building their writing skills and anyone who wishes to improve his/her language skills. I have experience tutoring adults and children as young as four year old. I like people and find working with them rewarding.

I use texts, movies, games and other methods to help with learning. I've done everything from playing Scrabble with children to reading articles from the New York Times with executives from other countries. Some of my students cannot speak much English and some have very good English skills but want to understand the slang, rhythms and subtleties of American English.

I look forward to hearing from a new student!
