About Marlene

From a young age, I knew I liked finding the answers to all types of questions and much of the time, I set about finding my own answers. This I believe, is a quality that every educator must possess. In addition, I'm a "puzzle person," meaning, I enjoy finding various ways to make things go together. Much of this I apply to my teaching strategies. I understand that everyone has a different way of learning and understanding material, so I work hard to find out what your way is so we can get the most out of each lesson and help you do your best. I know that what may work for some, may not work for others, and that's okay. In addition to being a credentialed teacher in California, I have worked as a tutor for The Princeton Review, and have been an on-call and long-term substitute teacher for middle and high school students since 2008. While I have taught various subjects including Science and Social Studies; Language Arts, English, and Writing are my favorites.

In 2006, I graduated with a BA in Creative Writing with a Minor in English from the University of California, Riverside. I have been published twice in UCR's literary journal, Mosaic, in 2004 and 2005. In 2012, I received my California Single-Subject teaching credential in English from National University.

I would love the opportunity to share my love of learning and knowledge with you, let's talk about what you'd like help with and see what we can do to make you achieve whatever goal you are aiming for! Feel free to contact me with any additional information you'd like to know about my experience or background.
