About Marjorie

I enjoy tutoring elementary school students. I have previous experience as a Tutor for two other companies. I have also been a Substitute Teacher for two local school systems for five years. I frequently substitute teach in the elementary schools and I enjoy it very much. It is very satisfying to know that I have helped students with their education. Also, as a Tutor for one company I had to tutor three students at the same time. There were nine students in the class and two other Tutors. When the post test was given to the students only two students passed it and one of those students was mine. I know that I can help your child progress in his/her education.

I am licensed as a Guidance Counselor K - 12 in North Carolina. Consequently I am very good at communicating with my students. As a Substitute Teacher and Tutor I have helped students with reading, handwriting, spelling and vocabulary.

What makes me an outstanding Tutor for elementary school students is that I have very good listening skills and try my best to understand where the child is in his/her understanding and performance regarding handwriting. I have much patience and am always determined to have the students master handwriting. As a Substitute Teacher I have taught handwriting to elementary school students.

I am very good with reading comprehension as well as reading in and of itself and I enjoy helping students master reading. As a Substitute Teacher I have helped students progress in this subject area. Also, as a Tutor. In addition, I enjoy learning new words and like passing on my enthusiasm regarding vocabulary. I have also taught this subject as a Substitute Teacher and a Tutor.

I would love to hear from you and I know that I can help your elementary school child with reading, handwriting, spelling and vocabulary. I have patience and am very encouraging and I enjoy helping students learn. Please do not hesitate to contact me if your child needs assistance in any of these areas.

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently substitute teaching and have been for the past five years. I substitute all grades but particularly elementary school. I have also tutored reading and math for two companies in 2009. For Academics Plus I tutored 3 students at the same time in reading and math. There were nine students in the program and two other Tutors. When the students took the reading post test only two passed it and one of these students was mine. In addition, I have a M.Ed. in Guidance and Psychological Services and I am a licensed Guidance Counselor in K-12 grades.

Handwriting

I have been substitute teaching for five years for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools. I substitute teach in elementary schools and have helped the children in the subject of handwriting. I have found that repetition in writing the alphabet and tracing the letters is very helpful. After tracing the letters several times the students then try writing the letters without the particular letter to guide them.
