About Martha

Parents and students,

I have been teaching children since 1991 when I graduated from college. I have taught children of all ages and ability levels. I believe a child will be more productive if you have a positive rapport with the child. So, I take the time to get to know the child. I want to know what they like, don't like, what they believe in, and how they feel about life in general. Most important, I believe all children can learn. They don't learn at the same pace, same style, or same setting but they can all be taught.
I taught in the Detroit Public School system for 17 years. I resigned this year as I felt my time there was complete. I now teach at a charter school in the downriver area. I teach fourth grade and tutor seventh and eighth graders in math. I enjoy working with children of all ages in all subject areas. I have taught bilingual students and taught students at a Sylvan Learning Center. I enjoy teaching children in any setting and enjoy watching them learn a new concept.
I look forward to helping you in any way I can. I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Martha B.

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.
