About Marcia

My name is Marcia. I prefer working with elementary students. I have had a passion for teaching challenged students for many years. I feel too often these students “fall through the cracks”. Usually, these children don’t ask for help because they feel embarrased for asking questions. It’s not that the child isn’t smart or unable to learn. It just takes confidence building, a few extra corners to go around, or that special door or window that needs to be passed through, in order for the child to “get it”!

I would like to share one example with you. There was a student I had the privilege to work with. He could not get the concept of fractions. He struggled along with the teachers. After spending time with him, I was able to find out his interest was football! The football field at the high school had just been completed, so I got permission from the Principal to take the student over to the field. Finally, the lights went on! The student was able to relate to fractions when we used football field yard lines as a component! What a joyful moment that was.

So, what I feel is necessary for success in tutoring, is finding out what is relative, important, and interesting to that child, and build understanding off of that. Learning can be lots of fun!

My experience includes; Special Education, Title One, Teachers Aide, Preschool Teacher, Head-Start Family/Child Advocate, and Substitute Teaching. I have taken special classes and attended seminars and workshops for: Family Psychology, Early Childhood Development and Education, Healthy Family, Mentoring, Parents as Teachers, Learning Enrichment, Literary Intervention Curriculum, FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome), Phonics, Special Services Workshop, Special Needs and Development.
