About Marni

I love working with people and words. Tutoring allows me to do both! I believe that teachers should be flexible and listen to what their students need. Each person has specific goals and their own unique way of learning. I want to hear what is important to you. And then I will find the materials and teaching methods that will work best for you.

I am an experienced ESL/ESOL tutor, as well as a published author. I have taught people of all ages from preschool to adults in many different settings, including as a Lamaze instructor and as a college teaching assistant. Having lived in Taiwan and Japan, I know some of the difficulties of successfully living in another culture. I also have some basic language skills in Chinese and Japanese.

My experience in ESL includes one-on-one and classroom teaching both in the United States and in East Asia. I have been certified with and have been volunteer tutoring with Washtenaw Literacy for the past six years. And I will be starting my MA coursework in TESOL at Eastern Michigan University this fall. I also have experience proofreading for other writers and have done both journalistic and creative writing. My teaching style is very student-centered and caring.

I completed all the coursework for a Ph.D. in Asian History at Indiana University and was a teaching assistant in a number of undergraduate History courses. I also happened to be married to a historian who teaches Asian and World History at a local college.

I am generally available on weekdays and can travel to your location or meet with you online. And I am happy to work with you on a short-term or long-term basis. I look forward to talking with you soon about your needs and how I can be of assistance to you.
